Cthulhu Saves the (Indie Game) World

    Roman Muradov makes comics. They are loosely narrated, wildly imaginative, sometimes dark, sometimes funny, and at all times brimming with a certain vibrant energy.  This summer, he'll also be sharing a table at San Francisco's ZineFest with fellow comic wunderkind/Kickstarter creator Phil McAndrew, and he's prepping a brand new full-color mini-collection of tragicomic funnies for the event. The comic will be based on a recurring character he calls Psychic Detective, and describes as a "demented recluse, a third-rate stand-in, an office plankton, a depressed lunatic, an everyman’s everyman, a rose, a rose & none of those."

    If there's one thing that comics are great for, it's transforming banal, very human woes (office plankton, third-rate stand-in) into fantastical, elaborate adventures spiked with humorous lunacy. If craziness is the currency of a well-crafted comic world, then Roman is definitely rich, and, lucky for us, his idiosyncratic gifts spilled over into his project's reward tiers.
