We are back into the wacky world of Kickstarter to spotlight another amazing project with the latest edition of Let’s Kickstart This! Today, I want to shine the spotlight down on a graphic novel that grabbed my attention as soon as I saw it: The Untamed: A Sinner’s Prayer by Sebastian A. Jones.
What’s it about? Here’s straight from the Kickstarter page:
Seven Days for Seven Souls. Would you damn yourself to save the ones you love? Hidden within the Desert of the Dying Tree lies a town run by ruthless killers, a growing cancer upon the vast and volatile fantasy world of Asunda. Some say it’s a watering hole for the devil. For one man, it’s a second chance at revenge… and a last chance at redemption. A man with no name has returned to the brutal Town of Oasis. A mysterious Stranger whose violent past haunts his every footstep. It’s been ten years since his wife and child were on the verge of turning him from wickedness, but they were murdered and so was he. Now, the Stranger has been released from Hell for seven days to reap the seven souls responsible, including his mistress, a young con-man he raised as a son, and his own brother. But having little recollection of his former life, the Stranger is lost in a sea of faded memories, glimpses of the life that was taken from him coming back in broken shards as he leaves his trail of bloody vengeance.
Conflict arises when he meets the orphan girl Niobe, who reminds him of his daughter. She acts as his conscience, and ultimately his only hope for salvation.
What drew me into this Kickstarter was the gritty, beautiful artwork, not to mention the dark story that screams of all kinds of comic book violence at its finest. I checked out the video, the sample pages, the story, and I knew there was no way I could pass on backing this. I love coming across projects like this, and luckily, right now, we have a plethora of high quality Kickstarter projects to help make into reality. So make sure to check out the Kickstarter page at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1182319554/the-untamed-a-sinners-prayer-hardcover-graphic-nov and let’s help make The Untamed come to life!
