About this project
I’m Holly Brown, currently working on my graphic novel series Purgatory.
- Purgatory is about a religious cult, and the son of the priest who falls in love with another boy his age. Rated teen.
- Purgatory will be a black and white, 280 page graphic novel, cream paper, 5.06 x7.81 inches.
- The book is scheduled to be shipped out between July- October 2017 (depends on the amount of books)
This book is my first comic I’ve ever made, and I’ve been working on it for about 2 years. I initially planned this to be a way to tell stories without having to animate them, but have developed a love for making comics more. I never anticipated the book to be this long (this is still only volume 1) but I knew I had to tell this story anyway.
Purgatory is set in a Holy city of the world's most prominent religion, based on several different religions/regions in our world, Purgatory takes the pro’s and con’s of religion and highlights them.
The characters explore this world of elaborate cathedrals and terrifying catacombs.
Being that the city of Purgatory is blocked off the cultural livelihood of the citizens have a 1950's mindset, so naturally Simon's love for Damian must be hidden. Damian having just emigrated in, is both perplexed and frightened of the place.
The book itself is a limited edition, as the cover is exclusive to kickstarter, all other copies sold will have the standard cover. All copies will be signed and numbered.
We did it! We reached the initial goal! As the kickstarter keeps going there's more that can be added as there's more funding, so if we get to $6,000 every physical pledge level will get a 3x5" vinyl sticker.
Risks and challenges
Some risks and challenges would be shipping the books out. I've been shipping art on my online store for a while now, bit nothing that has a potential to ship 100+ orders at once.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
