Vancouver Island artist creates horror comic about prison planet warden

The Nanaimo News Bulletin told about an artist who's come up with the umpteenth horror-themed graphic novel, this one about a prison planet:
A local comic book artist is getting ready to release the second issue of his horror-inspired graphic novel series, which features art and stories from comic enthusiasts all over Vancouver Island.

Nevin Arnold, a Chemainus-based comic book artist and editor, is seeking funds through a crowd-funded Kickstarter campaign to help him release the second installment of Monsterella Origins, a prequel to his original Monsterella series.

Arnold says Monsterella, a sci-fi, horror story which follows the title character, is a warden of a prison planet “where all of the worst of the worst, criminals and monsters and stuff, were kept,” has been a hit, and his crowdfunding has been a success, raising over 300 per cent of his goal for funding in 24 hours.

He has been self-publishing his, and other artists work, for over a decade under his publishing company Hangman Comics, and he’s been crowd-funding his work for five years. The first issue of Monsterella Origins sold between 800 and 1000 copies solely from online distribution and local comic shops.

“I remember someone telling me they were working on their own book and trying to find a publisher. And then all of a sudden, one day, they had done a Kickstarter, and they raised something like $25,000. They just made a bunch of money, and they got their comic book out there,” he said. “They’re just doing it themselves and making more money than they probably would have through a publisher. I was just amazed, so I knew that I had to give it a try.”
Yes, but let's remember, as mentioned before, that some crowdfunding sites like Kickstarter are run by leftists who can blacklist campaigns of people they don't like simply because of their politics, and that's why, again, it pays to be wary making use of their services. All that aside, while I wish the guy luck with his project, as I've argued before, it's a shame when horror becomes such a hugely emphasized theme, and not enough comedy put to use these days, all because of PC ruining everything. And it's honestly not great to see people pouring their dough into financing horror-themed entertainment products either.

  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
