Team Kaiju have came back with a new Kickstarter for a Lovecraftian Graphic Novel created by Josh Finney and Patrick McEvoy.
“What if Raymond Chandler wrote Lovecraft stories?”
Set in the mid-1940s, Casefile: 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.
ABOUT THE BOOK
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. Especially the ones that exist not in the spaces we know, but the ones in between.
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.
ABOUT THE CREATORS
JOSH I. FINNEY
Author and occasional artist, Josh I. Finney is the mind behind the award winning graphic novels World War Kaiju, Titanium Rain, and Utopiates. Most recently his story, “Death Wore Greasepaint” appeared in the H.P. Lovecraft-inspired anthology, Whispers from the Abyss. He is known for penning stories that are heavy on action, yet always reach deep into heady subjects involving science, politics, and philosophy. In another life, he was an illustrator for DC’s Batman/Catwoman.
Patrick McEvoy is one of your favorite artists. Seriously. You just didn’t know it. You may not recognize his name, but you know his art. McEvoy has spent the better part of a decade illustrating some of the most loved and memorable art to come out of the H.P. Lovecraft mythos. Card games, novels, posters, t-shirts—you’ve seen and probably own at least one piece of McEvoy’s art. He’s best known for his work on Arkham Horror, Call of Cthulhu, and oh yeah…a little known title called Game of Thrones.
