Clownfish TV’s “Crimson Rhen of the True North” Now on Indiegogo

On Sunday, the Clownfish TV crew (known for their work on the Clownfish TV YouTube channel) launched a crowdfunding campaign for Crimson Rhen of the True North, a 130+ page graphic novel inspired by Japanese manga and classic 1980s-style adventures. Crimson Rhen serves as the first in a two-part arc, as well as a prequel story to Clownfish’s Shadowbinders books.

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 IV, Lumina Vhox). It’s an idea that has been gestating in the minds of the Clownfish crew since at least 2013.

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

Clownfish Studios is bringing you a classic ’80s style adventure. It’s like The Goonies… on an airship.

Thaddeus Windell’s greatest treasure is out there, and it’s up to young mage Crimson Rhen and the crew of a rundown airship called The True North to find it! But will they find it in time? Crimson Rhen of the True North is a race against the clock filled with action, adventure, comedy and heart!

Backers can get a hardcover edition of Crimson Rhen for $40. If you have more money to spend, you can also pick up the following:

  • Multiple copies of the books
  • Art prints
  • Copies of Shadowbinders volumes 1&2

It is also worth noting that there is no additional shipping charge for those in the United States.
