Brave Detroit’s Dark Side in Matthew Simecek’s “Shadowpunk” Graphic Novel (Crowdfunding Spotlight)

Independent comic book creator Matthew Simecek recently launched a crowdfunding campaign for Shadowpunk, a cyberpunk-inspired, 52-page, graphic novel. The project is already fully funded, having raised nearly $4 thousand at the time of this writing.

Here’s the official pitch taken from the Shadowpunk Indiegogo campaign page:

Enter the World of Shadowpunk. A 52 Page Adventure.

Detroit, or what’s left of it.

Out of an Age of Chaos a New Evil rises to dominate the city and all those inside.

Against all odds, one girl survives. Lost and alone she’s on a mission to find her family. Can she do it? Will she be strong enough to uncover the lies and break through the barriers in her way?

Is she brave enough to bare the dark truths that await her?

This story begins the adventure that will take young Mera from the very top of the city down into it’s dark underbelly. But she’s not alone. A Small Resistance has gone into hiding, waiting for the day when they will emerge and fight back!

Today is that day!

Backers can get a digital version of Shadowpunk for $15, while physical copies start at $20. If you have more money to spend, you can also receive a Shadowpunk figurine or one of two t-shirt designs. It is also worth noting that there is an additional shipping charge starting at $10 for those in the United States.
