Nerd Wonder’s “Behemoth: War Makes Monsters” Now on Indiegogo
Earlier this week, the independent comic book creator known as Nerd Wonder launched a crowdfunding campaign for Behemoth: War Makes Monsters issue 1, a 50-page graphic novel.
Written and illustrated by Nerd Wonder (Graveyard Shift: Bite Sized Heroes), Behemoth: War Makes Monsters is her first solo project (with reasonable exceptions for lettering and editing).
Here’s the official pitch taken from the Behemoth: War Makes Monsters Indiegogo campaign page:
War can make a monster out of anyone, and this war made a biblical one!
Welcome to the 3rd world country once known as Edentia, now known as Titrov after the grueling end to the latest war. A cold and unkind life awaits all who live here.
If nature doesn’t kill you, the dictatorship will.
Mike Ilavern is no stranger to this kind of life. A first world war reporter, he makes a living out of covering war torn countries like this. But after all his ventures, Taja is definitely a first.
Taja Litburg, an ex guerilla fighter now wandering nudist, holds bizarre secrets this country has tucked away. Apparently, Vahalon, the other now dead dictatorship of the country, did biological experiments on their prisoners, attempting to create bio weapons. And according to Taja, they did make one. One of biblical proportions.
This is the first adventure out of many for our two protagonists. They will face up against soldiers, mercenaries, bandits, and the monsters that lurk in the night all in an attempt to uncover the secrets of Behemoth.
Backers can get a digital version of Behemoth: War Makes Monsters issue 1 for $7, while physical copies start at $18. If you have more cash to spend, you can also receive the following tchotchkes and extras:
- Multiple copies of the book
- Signed editions
- A digital “making of” book
- The chance to have your likeness drawn into the final book
It is also worth noting that there is an additional shipping charge starting at $8 for those in the United States.
