What if Jack Kirby created Dracula? Hunt For The Solavore, an independent horror comic that combines “the scale of space operas with the terror of cosmic horror” asks that very question. The creators have a Kickstarter going to crowdfund the project and they’re over halfway there with about 10 days to go. Can you lend a hand? We’ve got a a list of their new stretch goals and we’re hoping the community can pitch in to help them hit their goals.
What’s it all about? Read on for all the details!
Details From The Kickstarter Page
Like a vampire needs blood, so the ancient evil known as THE SOLAVORE needs the energy of a sun. Absent for centuries from the far-off galaxy of the Morrigen people, the Solavore had disappeared into the realm of myth. But now, with one of their solar systems facing a cosmic loss, the Morrigen are learning that the Solavore is not only real… but hungry.
For years, the Galactic Kingdom of the Morrigen had been protected by its latest ruler, the brave and brilliant KING THEOSIS. Committed to the freedom and safety of his people, King Theosis has lead the Morrigen through decades of darkness, striving toward a future of progress and peace. But after so many battles, Theosis’s beard has gone white; the grip on his sword has grown weaker. And after a devastating personal loss, Theosis must summon a strength he’s never known to defeat the worst threat the Morrigen have ever seen.
Fortunately for Theosis, his husband ABBINOIR will be there to help. Wise and compassionate as any ruler his people have served, Abbinoir is Theosis’s personal strength. While the king is looking out for the kingdom, Abbinoir looks out for its king. And though he’s been doing it for all of Theosis’s reign, every new threat weighs more on his mind, none more so than the Solavore. After all, how can you protect a man who must protect a kingdom?
Not that he won’t have help. In facing this unheard-of crisis, Theosis will have at his command some of the best warriors in the entire galaxy: his own royal guard and the elite female warriors known as the VALKINAE. Together, they make up the best defense the Morrigen have.
But will they be enough?
Nifty! So what about those stretch goals?
