Magnetic Press Kickstarts Monolith
Monolith is a visually stunning suspense thriller illustrated by visionary artist and designer LRNZ and written by Roberto Recchioni. Publisher Magnetic Press, who has produced several highly successful Kickstarters in 2020, is giving readers an opportunity to get an exclusive print of this cinematic, psychological thriller for pre-registering before the kickstart launch date, Tuesday, February 9th at 10AM CST.
This lushly painted tale began as a graphic novel project before turning quickly into a live-action feature film production, with LRNZ’s visual design direction brought to life.
What makes this graphic novel unique is how LRNZ changes styles throughout to convey the range of moods, dreams, and psychological trials Sandra experiences during this frightening 48-hour period. Sandra is a young mother still adjusting to the responsibilities of parenthood after a life filled with bad decisions. The most responsible decision she has made is to drive the safest car ever built, the Monolith, to protect her infant son, David, from her own accident-prone nature. During a trek across the desert to visit her husband in LA, they are stopped in the middle of the night by a collision with a deer. Checking on the damage, she accidentally locks herself out of the car, with David trapped inside. Now, isolated from civilization, she must save her son from a car designed to be an indestructible vault on wheels. The sun is rising, heating the car’s interior, and time is running out!
