Kickstarter Watch: Imaginary Voyages of Edgar Allan Poe #1 (KS Exclusive Edition)

The first issue of an epic fantasy adventure through a nightmare world of mythological gods and monsters inside Edgar Allan Poe’s head!

Creator Dwight MacPherson is Kickstarting The Imaginary Voyages of Edgar Allan Poe because he has been asked by several readers if his digital comics will ever be available in printed form.

“I get that not everyone is a fan of digital comics. Many people (like me) love the feel and smell of the printed page. So we decided to create this campaign and make our first printed comic book extra special. And by extra special, we mean a 28-page book that features a brand-new cover from Emmy-nominated Director/Producer/Illustrator, David Hartman, and a special four-page “Making-Of” section designed by author and illustrator, Tricia Martin. We decided to use Kickstarter so we can cover printing costs and pay our creative team something extra. It’s a win-win situation!”

ABOUT THE BOOK

The Imaginary Voyages of Edgar Allan Poe is a reimagined version of the Harvey and Eagle Award-nominated graphic novel from Image Comics which features a revised script and eye-popping new art by the artist of the Bram Stoker Award-winning Kolchak the Night Stalker: The Forgotten Lore of Edgar Allan Poe, Luis Czerniawski. This is the first of 12 chapters/issues, and if we are successful with this campaign, the plan is to make all 12 issues available as Kickstarter-exclusive printed issues.

But let’s not get ahead of ourselves.

THE STORY

Edgar Allan Poe has lost everyone he ever loved and now he is losing his mind. Haunted by his wife’s ghost and his many literary failures, the poet tumbles into a fantastical world created by his genius…and his madness. This world called Terra Somnium is a nightmare region that merges his macabre literary creations and mythological gods and monsters of old, all hell-bent on stopping him from escaping the land of dreams.

WHAT IS IT SIMILAR TO?

I’ve often described this story as “Alice in Wonderland meets The Lord of the Rings.” And for those who are fans of classic literature like myself, I would describe it as “Homer’s Odyssey meets Dante’s Divine Comedy.”
