There is still some time to contribute to the Kickstarter to fund issue #5 of City of Lost Souls, an indie horror comic featuring a dead serial killer haunted by the ghosts of his twelve victims, who is tasked by a soul collector to locate the titular settlement, which may be entirely fictional.
Penned by implausibly prolific and possibly disturbed comics writer James McCulloch and illustrated with equal darkness by Janine van Moosel, the series is bleak and gripping, and we have been greatly enjoying it so far, having previously reviewed issues #2, #3 and #4.
Campaign rewards include previous issues of the series available both physically and digitally, which can be collected as single issues or bundles, and also available is the likes of art prints and tshirts. As the campaign has already reached its target a stretch goal has now been set, and should it be reached all backers will receive the spoils of a one-off print run of the single-issue Karyn Shade: Beyond Forth, McCulloch’s brilliant tale (drawn by the supremely talented Jessica Byrne) featuring its eponymous snarky investigator searching for missing children in the purgatorial wasteland of South Lanarkshire with determination and badassery. Set in the same universe as City of Lost Souls, it was initially published in three parts in anthology title Comichaus.
