Launched a year ago on Kickstarter, Arcane Sally and Mr Steam is the brainchild of Dragabok; an LA based comic book production company. They wanted to convert a screenpaly into a ten issue comic book and turned to crowdfunding to make it happen. It did happen and the first two issues can be yours.
In Victorian England, Lord Percival Cawthorne, a rogue agent of the British Crown, his faithful manservant Runnymede, and a mysterious agent named Miss Sally, must stop an elusive mastermind from unleashing Lewis Carroll’s most dangerous mathematical theories and altering the very nature of reality
Arcane Sally creators
The comics are written by David Hedges. He’s a screenwriter raised in Los Angeles who took his English Literature degree to Hollywood. A chance meeting with former comics publisher Shane Amaya led him to consider adapting his work to a new, albeit venerable, visual storytelling medium.
Illustrated by Jefferson Costa – a Brazilian artist. Jeff is a talented and versatile artist. He has found no shortage of work in animation, comics and freelance illustration in Brazil. Costa was first published in the United States in Gunned Down, an anthology of Westerns by Brazilian writers and artists published by Terra Major in 2005.
The items up for grabs on 4th April are the first two issues of Arcane Sally and Mr Steam comics.
