Crowdfunding Comics: Koroo the Black Lion


Support on Kickstarter

KOROO: THE BLACK LION is a 4-part mini-series that tells the story of an ostracized young cub as he learns to cope with a mysterious connection to a star-spawned horror, understand his kinship with a strange cosmic-aligned orphan boy, and confront a supernatural infestation of interstellar parasites that are set to contaminate his land in the name of forgotten, slumbering gods.

NOTE: This series is intended for Mature Audiences.


Crowdfunding Comics: Raven Nevermore


Get via Kickstarter Add-On

RAVEN NEVERMORE is a 9-part limited comic series set in a bleak and dreary supernatural dark fantasy setting that tells the origin story of the elite lawman, Corvan Moore, as he faces off against criminals, shifters, fiends, and spirits.

Corvan Moore will be forced to confront his own mysterious heritage, in a continued effort to reject a destiny he’s successfully kept buried in his subconscious his entire life.

Follow this tale as Corvan’s mundane encounter with the local mob spirals into a soul-shattering epic-scale battle that could bring perpetual darkness to the world!

The story takes its time, but is action-packed the entire way through! Each issue ends with a cliffhanger that, hopefully, makes you eager to return to continue unveiling the mystery of the Raven Nevermore.

NOTE: This series is intended for Mature Audiences.


I recorded the bonus content that can be found in RAVEN NEVERMORE #1. It's a poem called "For Evermore", which is inspired by Edgar Allan Poe's "The Raven" (naturally).
