They said fantasy roleplaying games were dangerous and they were wrong. But now? Maybe they were right to be afraid! Writer Mark Sable and artist Chris Anderson have created a Kickstarter campaign for Chaotic Neutral, an all-new 48-page comic book first issue inspired by the old school fantasy roleplaying games that worried parents and teachers alike. Chaotic Neutral delivers magic, adventure, and storytelling—with an edge.
And Chaotic Neutral is more than just a comic:
- Mark Sable has written an official Chaotic Neutral Adventure Module that you can play using most old school fantasy games.
- Acclaimed comics creator Ryan Browne (God Hates Astronauts; Curse Words) has created an all-new, Chick Tracts-styled comic with a very specific message: comic books and RPGs will ruin your life.
- Superstar artists Max Dunbar (Dungeons & Dragons), Jeremy Haun (Haunthology), Maan House (Godkillers), Jeff Johnson (Boondocks), Tom Neely (The Humans), Dan Panosian (Slots), Jim Rugg (Mtsryr: Octobriana 1976), Tim Seeley (Money Shot) and Kyle Strahm (Spread) have created Chaotic Neutral: Monster Trading Cards. This uncut trading card sheet will feature one side with art, while the other will contain stats for a campaign.
We have an exclusive look at Tom Neely and Max Dunbar’s Chaotic Neutral: Monster Trading Card art. Check out Neely’s Night-Mare and Dunbar’s Skeleton below!
The Kickstarter has crossed its goal and ends on October 28, 2021 at 11:59 EDT.
If you’ve never seen it, the show Star Crossed depicted a future Louisiana where an alien race has arrived and is placed an internment camp while also integrating into a suburban high school. The show had one wonder how can you cohabitate with people not from this world? In the first volume of Lost Angels we find a dystopian world where Los Angeles has alien angels living among them and not everyone can live with that.
We are taken to Los Angeles, where an angel is flying in
restricted airspace and the reader is introduced to Silver City, what used to
be Santa Monica, as we know it. We are also introduced to Alex Martinez, a
young human girl, who moved Silver City as part of a “cultural exchange
program” and whose mother is a police officer and whose partner is an angel,
Daurek. As the divide between the humans and the angels, especially at Alex’s
school, is pretty transparent, forcing many including Alex to pick a side.
Also, a drug made from a material the Angels brought with them, called
Ambrosia, has hit the streets, leading to a one of her classmates getting
killed because of it. This leads Alex to find out who gave it to him and for
what reason they have for leading him to his death and to clear the name of one
of the angels. By book’ end, Alex has found about the darks secret that Angels
have been hiding from humans and she has finally found a true friend.
Overall, an excellent story that imagines a world both innovative and fantastic. The story by David Accampo is suspenseful and complex. The art by Chris Anderson is utterly beautiful. Altogether, an excellent comic which will have readers coming back for more.
