Sisterhood: Fully Unwrapped and Phase 2 Announced
Let me just say it with pictures 🙂
Just one of many fun moments we (my youngest son on the left) had while shooting the Cosplay Cover (cardstock 300 grams with UV-spot!!).
The front cover, interior front cover as well as the interior back cover will be the place to oogle and doozle the end-result!
A PG-comic book about mummies, justice, resurrection & the unordinary. That is what creator and projectleader Richard Boom (yes, that is his real name… it means ‘tree’ in his country and not a sfx) came up with as a culmination of his dream project, based on his collection of sketchbook art.
The project is fully funded via Kickstarter and Boom is now even planning his next crowdsourcing project, a mummy statue, a magazine and a lot more interesting collaborations.
The comic book itself will be a PG-book because Richard Boom “believes his comics should be read by his very own kids as well as others around the globe”.
The synopsis to his book ‘goes a little something like this:
For several centuries the ancient order of Justice has laid dormant, but the magical power of the Justice Gems have been released during an Egyptian archeological dig and now all over the world the mummified Priestesses of Justice come back to life. As supernatural evils threaten human society through the next decades, the Sisterhood will be there to guard and protect.
In 1917, a mysterious adventurer (Rand) enters a pyramid In British Colonial Egypt. There he opens the Cauldron of Khepri. The spirits of ancient priestesses are released, resurrecting mummies all over the world who were devoted to an embodiment of the goddess of Justice and truth. Five years later, the mummies form the Sisterhood of the Mummy, a spiritual order to help the truth and justice against the unordinary. They are cop, judge, juror and executioner defending the world. The order live in an underground base with technology beyond human knowledge. They are led by the adventurer, the Mother-Supreme and the remains of a high-priest whose soul is being used as software for a supercomputer.
As Richard Boom explains “this is a project, with talented folks I have known and worked with over the last couple of years, each an inspiration to me. They energize this project with each word, each line and each color palette.”
INTENTION: SISTERHOOD is a series of oneshots 32/page stories in a 36 page comic format.
Currently FOUR issues have been completed, with 4 more already written!
Each comicbook will feature different artists, to ensure not only a high quality but also creating a platform for outstanding artists. This idea is highly influenced by Boom’s very own Sketchbook Theme where over 200 artists each have shown him their own personal magic!
