It’s a wonderful thing when a Kickstarter can get the financial backing it’s looking to create its project. It’s equally as fantastic when the said Kickstarter is creative, original, and engrossing. Curse of the Vessel #1, a comic by Michael Leal with illustrations from Mike Wilson and colors from Michael McElveen is one such endeavor.

Vincent, a hired thug for the mob boss, Eddie Roman, is sent to make the local magic shop owner, Mr. Zicari, reconsider an offer he had recently refused. When things go awry, Vincent ends up in a motel with a strange symbol branded into his chest, forcing him to recall the events that led him to his current surroundings.

With this newfound curse, Vincent’s body is unwillingly forced into dangerous situations with the wrong sorts of people.
