Post-Apocalyptic and Supernatural in Shadow’s Daughter? Ok then.
After a successful campaign over on Kickstarter, Aussie comic book creator Morgan Quaid, is bringing his supernatural post-apocalyptic world, Shadow’s Daughter, to indiegogo. And yes I know what you’re thinking “how in the 10 shades of shit does supernatural even begin to enter a post-apocalyptic world?”
Well, dear reader, I’m glad you asked that question. Let’s go deep.
What is Shadow’s Daughter?
Shadow’s Daughter is a supernatural, post-apocalyptic comic set in a world beset by preternatural beings and natural disasters which coincide with the rising of the demon moon. The comic features a strong female lead who possesses the ability to manipulate shadow as a physical object.
At its heart, this story is a crime/mystery narrative with supernatural/post-apocalyptic elements. The comic features a mix of intense dialogue, introspective discovery, and bursts of action whilst steadily introducing a group of core characters that surround Summer.
While Book 1 and 2 cover the main story of Shadow’s Daughter, the spin off comics show episodes from Summer’s earlier life as a fledgling bounty hunter working for the FBPI. The spin off books provide some background to main characters and each stands alone as a self-contained story.
In short: this is a kickass urban fantasy thriller featuring a female bounty hunter who can use shadow as a weapon!
Why the hell should I support this?
Shadow’s Daughter is an exceptionally told tale. Building on Quaid’s scripting ability, you have the the art of Moises May, Daniel Reed and Adam Kmiolek, lending their talents to vibrant and sinister looking variant covers. There’s also the added advantage of being able to pick up 6 print comics all at once. That’s the whole series to date. No waiting for the next issues which is an added plus in my book.
The campaign is for 2 issues of the main Shadow’s Daughter comic, 4 x black and white spin off stories.
The Rating? If you care about such things is Teen + Mature themes included, with mild language, no nudity (sorry grifters). Expect the format of the printing as Modern US Comic size. And, thankfully, Quaid has decided to print this comic in both USA and Australia, in an effort to combat not just the worldwide paper shortages but also the ongoing cluster fuck that is international shipping costs.
Then there’s the favourable exchange rate for USA, UK and European backers. Sure it works out for you guys but what about us Aussies? We get absolutely screwed at the dollar. But hey, at least you get your copy of Shadow’s Daughter at a cheaper price then the rest of us, right? Fucking yanks…
