Cyberpunk Horror Comic “Fractured Echo” Now on Indiegogo (Crowdfunding Spotlight)

Independent comic book creator Aaron Bennett recently launched a crowdfunding campaign for Fractured Echo issue 1, a 33-page comic intended as the beginning of a series.

Written by Bennett and illustrated by Rod Luper, Fractured Echo is a genre-blending tale combining elements of cyberpunk, sci-fi, and horror.

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

Alexandra, is a space technician who salvages the remains of damaged space vessels that drift in orbit. Upon discovery of a derelict vessel, she and her crew descend to inspect and salvage its remains. On arrival things are not what they seem, as they encounter what looks to be the works of a demented cult. Succumbed to dark psychedelic trauma onboard, the salvage mission is no longer their priority while they face genetically modified creatures. Alone and isolated in space, who will Alex and her crew turn to.

Vibrant Neon Color Palette

Creating a truly enjoyable experience for our audience required more than a great story as it also needed amazing colors and art to compliment it. When words are visualized it creates a deeper experience to those engaging in the story. Our artist Rod Luper has done an amazing job at materializing the story behind Fractured Echo.

Our art creates depth and invokes emotion by utilizing water paint like strokes and color pallets. Ever inch of every panel is digitally hand painted which gives each page a quality unlike any other comic.

Backers can get a digital version of Fractured Echo issue 1 for approximately $7 (converted from Australian dollaridoos), while physical copies start at approximately $17. If you have more money to spend, you can also receive the following:

  • Holographic sticker
  • Keychain
  • Bookmark
  • Poster
  • Fractured Echo NFTs
  • Inked original art pages
  • T-shirt

There is currently no additional shipping charge for backers in the United States, but it’s possible that shipping will be charged at a later date.
