Love graphic novels and dark fantasy worlds? Well, then this Kickstarter might be for you! Here’s the story of The Untamed.
“Seven Days for Seven Souls. Would you damn yourself to save the ones you love?
A cloaked Stranger slips into the rustic Town of Oasis, changing things forever. Ten years it has been since he ran this town with malice and harshness. Even then there was hope for his soul. His wife and daughter were on the verge of turning him from wickedness. But they were murdered, and so was he. A decade later, the devil offered a deal. Seven days to reap the seven souls responsible for his betrayal. But his return will become more than just a tale of revenge when a young girl, Niobe Ayutami, reminds him of his murdered daughter, acting as his conscience and becoming his only hope for salvation.”
It’s going to be a hardcover, 248 page graphic novel printed on recycled paper. The art itself looks AMAZING.
The creators have actually already animated the first issue of the graphic novel. Here’s the short version that they put up on YouTube:
