Ross Campbell, Ming Doyle, Declan Shalvey and More Contribute Art to ‘Storykiller’ Kickstarter
Here at ComicsAlliance, we obviously have a vested interest in seeing comics bloggers do well with their various projects. That said, it’s a lot easier to get behind stuff when it looks like it’s going to be amazing, which is why we’re all pretty excited about Kelly Thompson’s Storykiller and the roster of incredible artists she’s gathered to illustrate the special edition of her new novel.
As you might imagine from the title, Storykiller follows the adventures of a young woman named Tess Battle, who possesses both a giant black battleaxe and the ability to kill fictional characters, and it’s set to be illustrated by CA favorites like Ross Campbell, Ming Doyle, Declan Shalvey and more. Check out the video and the full roster below!
And the artists:
Storykiller is a follow-up to Thompson’s previous crowd-funded novel, The Girl Who Would Be King, which tripled its goal and ended up being released with a special edition hardcover as well as garnering praise from writers like Jen Van Meter and Scott Snyder. For the curios, there’s a lengthy sample available on Thompson’s site, and more art can be found at the Kickstarter itself.
She had my interest when she said the book featured a team-up with Robin Hood, but to be honest, the premise of murdering fictional characters has me waiting for a stretch goal where Tess will brutally axe-murder a character of your choice. Finally, Lucy Lane’s reign of terror will be ended.
