Politician Jim Faulkner is drawn into the governor of Alabama's scheme to secede from the USA in the graphic novel, Shadow of Dixie.
Shadow of Dixie is co-written by Scott O. Brown (Red Ice), and Jamie Delano (Hellblazer) with art by Luca Cicchitti. We also have Stu Chaifetz on colors.
Jamie and Scott wrote this script to jab all that campaign season secession talk in the eye (thank you, Mr. Perry!), and it's taken some time to get the rest of the creative team just right. Obviously, we're looking to raise the funds to publish this ourselves. Here's a more detailed description of what we're up to:
In Shadow of Dixie, wannabe Alabama politico Jim Faulkner shakes loose some family skeletons and finds himself sucked into the Utopian governor's radical ploy to secede the state from a crippled United States--a process that unleashes savage family rivalries and the inevitable militarily enhanced opposition of the Federal Government, which, unsurprisingly, is not enchanted by their quest for independence.
We hope to get you all on board! This is a great, dark, amusing comic that's the perfect antidote to the election season.
The funds will pay to finish the interior art and coloring, the cover artist, and printing/publishing costs.
Shadow of Dixie is a 112 page book. That's 88 pages of story in a nice presentation with faux-editorial cartoons and production extras to round out the count.
Our goal is to make the digital edition available in as many popular digital formats as possible, including CBZ/CBR.
