Thank you for taking the time to check out SPELLBOUND! My name is Aaron Ferrara and I run an autobiographical webcomic called HUSBAND & HUSBAND and have spent the past year developing this new, full-length graphic novel about magical realism! With your help, we’ll be able to produce this graphic novel in time for a February/March 2019 release date!
In the near future, witches have begun to come out of the shadows to lead normal lives. Benjamin is a vlogger fresh out of high scool with no clear direction. When he meets a witch his age named Dominic, he becomes fascinated by his way of life, re-igniting his passion for storytelling. He decides to disguise as a witch himself, taking advantage of how new the system is in order to get a closer look on film, but quickly finds that joining a coven wont be As easy as he thought...
SPELLBOUND is a coming of age lgbt fantasy about magical realism and finding your passion!
Independent comics and graphic novels are only successful with support. We love to spend our nights and weekends working to produce the best quality stories and physical books as possible. There Is a major lack of LGBT lead characters in the comic book/publishing industry as a whole, and that number gets even smaller when looking at niches like fantasy and magical realism. My goal is to bring more diverse stories and dynamic characters to the forefront and build a place for them in the future of publishing. I can only do that with your support. Graphic novel publishing is expensive, and still a small industry, so many publishers are less likely to take a chance on projects that they don’t think will sell. I believe that comics are for EVERYONE, and growing up personally I would have loved to come across a graphic novel fantasy story about witches with a strong, gay lead!
Thank you again for taking a look at this project! Independent projects are only successful from the support of people like you. We would love your support in making magic happen!
