Clownfish Comics’ Crimson Rhen is “Like The Goonies. On an Airship.”

“Heyyyyy youuuu guyyyyys!” Welcome back to 80s August, The Splintering’s month-long celebration of the greatest decade since the Archimedes’ Principle of density. 

The creative minds at Clownfish Comics (perhaps most known for their work on the Clownfish TV YouTube channel) are prepped to launch a crowdfunding campaign for Crimson Rhen of the True North, a 130+ page hardcover comic book inspired by Japanese manga and classic 1980s-style adventures. It’s an idea that has been gestating in the minds of the Clownfish crew since at least 2013, and this book is intended as the first in a two-part arc.

Crimson Rhen is written by the husband and wife team of Kambrea Pratt (aka Geeky Sparkles) and Thom Pratt (aka Kneon), with illustrations by José Garcia (Graveyard Shift Vol IVLumina Vhox).

Here’s the official pitch from the Crimson Rhen Indiegogo prelaunch page:

It’s like The Goonies. On an Airship.

Hop onboard The True North for steampunk, fantasy, mystery and comedy! A classic adventure story like the ones we grew up with!

Crimson Rhen of the True North is the first book in a two-part arc that serves as the prequel to Shadowbinders. The graphic novel is drawn in a manga style. It’s over 130 pages of FULL COLOR art and will be printed in hardcover.
