The Monuments Comes to Kickstarter and is Funded in 12 hours
Sci-fi fantasy graphic novel The Monuments is now live on Kickstarter, was funded in 12 hours, and has now collected over $21,000 in pledges.
The Monuments is a 140 page, beautifully illustrated, mystery/adventure story from Oliver Mertz, Michael S. Bracco, and Mike Isenberg.
The first issue/first chapter of The Monuments was released in September 2018. This Kickstarter is to fund the printing for the complete graphic novel.
The Monuments is about a fantasy world in which four warring city-states are forced to come together to face a common enemy: giant mysterious mechs. Right before wiping out the entire civilization, the mechs all power down for no clear reason, leaving the survivors to rebuild their world together.
800 years later. The world has moved on. The city-states are now united as one nation: a land littered with massive robotic relics that serve as monuments to a long-forgotten war.
After centuries of dormancy, one of these long-frozen mechs suddenly powers up, revealing a man who is confused, misplaced in time, and still very much alive.
