“What if Raymond Chandler wrote Lovecraft stories?”
Set in the mid-1940s, Case File: Arkham follows Hank Flynn, a down on his luck private eye who is back from the war and now working the mean streets of the most cursed city on Earth—Arkham, Massachusetts. And things only get worse for Flynn when a wealthy uptown socialite hires him to track down an artist by the name of Pickman. What begins as a simple missing persons case leads Flynn down a dark path of flesh eating ghouls, vengeful witches, and the notorious Innsmouth mafia.
More information can be found at www.CasefileARKHAM.com.
Casefile: ARKHAM is the second collaborative project between renowned fantasy artist, Patrick McEvoy (Call of Cthulhu, Arkham Horror), and award-winning author, Josh Finney (World War Kaiju, Titanium Rain). Intended as an on-going series of graphic novels, each installment of Casefile: ARKHAM will follow Detective Hank Flynn as he peels back the thin veil of reality to confront H.P. Lovecraft’s most enduring horrors.
For Detective Flynn’s first outing we’d ideally want to tell
the entire story in single graphic novel. To do this we’ll need to surpass our
goal of $8000 and raise a TOTAL of $14,000. This will allow us to tell the
entire story within a single 88 page book. If we can raise a total of $19,000 the
book will extend to a total of 116 page. This will allow for some extra (and
longer) scenes that would otherwise not be included. Also we’ll be able to offer
several pages of concept art and background inform on the world of Casefile: ARKHAM.
ALL Pledges $15 and up will receive both a physical and digital copy of the book.
For those wanting to go above and beyond simply ordering the book, 01Publishing is offering a number of unique incentives.
The following items can be purchased separately with your incentive of choice. Just make sure you add the extra amount to your pledge and tell us what it is for when we send out the survey at the end of the Kickstarter.

Risks and challenges
There are two potential delays that could occur with the delivery of Casefile: ARKHAM.
1) If this campaign achieves some of the higher incentive benchmarks the book's length will be doubled, or even tripled. If this happens naturally the book will take longer to produce.
2) Possible shipping delays due to the recent dock slowdown.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
