Andy Smith’s “Kor-Drath: The Reckoning” Promises Brutes, Babes and Battle Axes

…and blood, and beasts, and bosomy bat-ladies…

On Monday, veteran comic book creator and Astonishing Comics founder Andy Smith launched a crowdfunding campaign for Kor-Drath: The Reckoning volume 1, a 64-page fantasy graphic novel.

The project is already fully funded, having raised more than $36 thousand at the time of this writing.

Co-created by Andy Smith and Dennis Turner, Kor-Drath: The Reckoning is a tale of vengeance set in a world of swords and sorcery akin to Conan and Golden Axe.

Here’s the official pitch taken from the Kor-Drath: The Reckoning Indiegogo campaign page:

Star-crossed lovers Kor-Drath and Adryana from different tribes set out to avenge the slaughter of his tribe only to discover that the danger is far deadlier than they could have imagined.

After the Barbarian Kor-Drath’s tribe, Red Lions, was slaughtered by the undead, he and his companion the Sorceress Adryana from the Black Eagles sister Tribe set out to avenge those responsible for the massacre. Their quest shows that there is more than meets the eye as enemies from the undead to demons reveals themselves to the lovers. What can these two hope to do against such odds as they find they are but pawns in a much more dangerous game.

The Necra-Knight aided by Lilineth unleashed a swarm of the undead to brutally ravage and slaughter the Red Lions tribe in search of an ancient artifact that when brought together with others will unleash a great power to whoever wields them.

Backers can get a copy of Kor-Drath: The Reckoning for $25. If you have more money to spend, you can also pick up the following tchotchkes and add-ons:

  • Multiple copies of the book
  • Variant covers
  • A black and white artist edition
