Help us print Deathless: the story of Noah in Full Color!
Who is Noah?
Noah would like to answer that question, but his memory got fuzzy about 200 years ago. Deathless is the story of Noah, a character based on Mesoamerican mythology, as he searches for the clues to his enigmatic past. Volume 1 is the 100+ page first step into Noah's world as he and his friends are dragged into a twisted conspiracy in the months leading up to WWI. Noah has begun to have visions of his former life on the islands of his missing homeland.
- Why have the clergy summoned Noah to a strange monastery in Denmark?
- Who are the two baleful visitors from Noah's past who await him there?
- Why have all those around Noah died while he continues to live?
- What's with all the intestines that keep spilling out of Noah's gut?
Yeah, but what else?
Deathless combines Mesoamerican mythology with elements of William Blake's cosmology. There are clergymen faced with a crisis of faith and Noah's companions who, for reasons both innocent and selfish, follow him on his adventures hoping to unlock the secret of his missing world, and the cause of his apparent immortality.
To illustrate Noah's visions of his past, Joe switches styles and illustrates using a variety of mediums. Below is an image with charcoal on distressed paper that Joe has cut out and placed directly onto the panel.
What's so compelling about Deathless?
Deathless goes beyond any one genre. We set out to tell a thrilling, epic tale because that's what we like to read. Sometimes when we talk about Noah and world we've created, we get so excited we start punching each other in the face, no joke.
Underneath the surface of blood and gore, creatures and sweet dredlocks, is a story about a guy who's lost everything and has tried for centuries to fit into world where nothing makes sense to him. Deathless is the story of Noah overcoming the loneliness of outliving his friends and family, and conquering the haunting feeling that he is responsible for the loss of his entire culture. It's a heavy burden that's forced him into the debt of many dangerous and deadly individuals over the years.
Deathless recently joined the Rampage Network a collective of web comics where we'll begin posting the next section of Noah's adventures sometime this fall. Your support will help us print the beautiful Volume 1 in full color and ensure that Noah's story continues.
