Kickstarter Alert: Magnetic Press launching ‘Wahcommo’ by Luis NCT

Magnetic Press Launches WAHCOMMO by LUIS NCT.

Magnetic Press has launched a new Kickstarter today they’re calling Lord of the Rings with a “Nordic skew” by Luis NCT with art by Karl Kerschl. You can check out the Kickstarter here.

“We’re always looking to bring the hottest titles and talent ‘discoveries’ to the English-language stage, and we were immediately hooked by Luis NCT’s work the minute we first saw WAHCOMMO in Angouleme. It is a perfect fit with Magnetic’s slate of visually dynamic, conceptual aesthetic, absolutely deserving of a premium hardcover presentation. And being able to work with Karl Kerschl, co-creators of one of our favorite North American comics ISOLA, on the campaign-exclusive variant makes this project even sweeter,” says publisher Mike Kennedy.Magnetic Press Launches WAHCOMMO by LUIS NCT

The campaign will also be offering a super-deluxe, leather-bound edition limited to only 200 copies. This will be Magnetic’s third campaign following their success with PARIS 2119 and ASTER OF PAN.
