Unexplained violence spreads like a virus when PaperFilms’ graphic novel RAGE launches on Kickstarter, by Jimmy Palmiotti and Scott Hampton.
Acclaimed creators Jimmy palmotti Y Scott Hampton have announced their latest Kick starter draft; a new horror graphic novel titled FURY. This fully painted Mature Readers book will be the 16th that PaperFilms has funded through the popular crowdfunding platform. The company, founded by Palmotti and Amanda Conner (who will provide a variant cover), has used Kickstarter with great success, and it looks like PaperFilms will find gold again with FURY.
Over the past decade, crowdfunding platforms like Kickstarter and IndieGoGo have become increasingly popular with comic book creators as a way to fund projects, and PaperFilms has been at the forefront, using Kickstarter to fund projects like Painkiller Jane Y Denver. For his latest project, PaperFilms co-founder Jimmy Palmotti will team up with artist Scott Hampton, whose credits include Neil Gaiman’s American Gods Y Black widow, bring readers a nightmare cross-country odyssey in FURY, and now Screen Rant is excited to bring an exclusive first look at the book, complete with sample art from Hampton, as well as a look at the variant cover by Bill Sienkiewicz!
What FURY It begins, Braden Radovick awakens in a holding cell in New York City. Outside, everything has collapsed: fires are everywhere, corpses are strewn on the street, and people act strangely. Scientists are quick to explain why, but the situation continues to deteriorate further, to the point where Braden is able to leave his cell in full view of the police. Their daughter, Friday, is on the West Coast, prompting Braden to embark on a cross-country trip to find her. To mark the launch of FURY‘s Kick starter campaign, which has now officially started, PaperFilms has provided a wealth of preview material, including covers, letterless preview pages, and full comic book pages so fans can get a real feel for the project.
In a press release for the series, Palmiotti explained that, like most of PaperFilms’ production, FURY is intended for mature readers, saying: “RAGE is a graphic novel with sex and violence and it is for adults. We make comics for adults, by adults.” The preview pages create a sense of dread, showing a world that falls apart at the seams and with no end to terror in sight. FURY speaks clearly to issues pertinent to 2021, as it is hinted that the story takes place in a world still reeling from two deadly pandemics. But as the best horror FURY does not ignore the human element, focusing on a father struggling to find his daughter in a world that has gone very wrong.
FURY‘s Kick starter The campaign is live now, and the series is sure to be another hit from the proven team of Jimmy palmotti Y Scott Hamptonand more evidence from PaperFilms that there is room in the comic book market for projects aimed solely at an adult audience.
