Burn Man 2 is the continuation of Shawn Kuruneru's graphic novel Burn Man that he describes as, "My version of Alfred Hitchcock and manga".
Burn Man is a psychodrama that depicts the surreal journey of a man obsessed with performing a burn ritual in New York City. His fire fixation spirals out of control as he is chased by ruthless authority, stalked by demonic punks and haunted by strange dreams that turn into cosmic nightmarish visions of ancient fire ceremonies.
The first book was successfully funded on Kickstarter in 2018. This year the story comes to a strange poetic end in Burn Man 2. With your support I'll be able to share the end of the story with you!
This book will be softcover, perfect-bound, 60 pages, offset printing, black and white, 60LB paper, 7.875 x 10.5 inches, edition of 500.
Drawing and lettering done with pencil, brushes, pens and nibs. Here are some pages from Burn Man 2.
