It takes more than skill and money to create a comic book. It takes passion and persistence, most likely in equal amounts. That’s exactly what the creators behind Black Suit Of Death The Series – Issue #1 have going for them. It’s a story with a science fiction background but shrouded in the mysteries of the ancient world. For this story is no less than the origin of the Grim Reaper!
Without spoiling anything, the story is as follows: thousands of years ago, a distant planet suffered from overpopulation. A scientist is therefore tasked with solving the energy crisis. Building a biomechanical suit that takes the life force of the unworthy and sends it into the planet to sustain the occupants, the scientist is denounced and exiled with his creation to the primitive planet of Earth. Passing from one bearer to the next for millennia, a new mythos of death is born: The Grim Reaper. Who will be the next recipient and what will they do with it? Well, that’s the point of this comic and Kickstarter campaign!
The creative team behind this comic tried to crowdfund this little story once before but with limited success, unfortunately. Learning from their mistakes, they relaunched the Kickstarter campaign and have been doing far better than their previous attempt. But with just over a week left, they are still falling short of their goal. That’s where we come in. As a backer of this project, we are able to pledge money at different levels to receive unique products and special recognition for our contribution. All of it hinges on the campaign being successful so make sure to check it out and tell your friends about it, too!
The official Kickstarter page has a ton more information and even part of the comic posted for you to read, but I added the video just after the break so you can get a better idea of what it’s all about before you head over to the fundraiser. The campaign ends on May 19, 2016 so don’t delay, check it out today!
