BURBANK, CA. Madeleine Holly-Rosing, writer/creator of the comic Boston Metaphysical Society announced the launch of her campaign to fund the printing of Boston Metaphysical Society: Ghosts and Demons as well as their first coloring book with twenty illustrations by Alejandro Lee. It is the third standalone story that continues the original six issue mini-series. The story will be 35 pages in a 44 page perfect bound book. “This short graphic novel was inspired by a short story I wrote called, Here Abide Monsters, which was originally published in the anthology, Some Time Later from Thinking Ink Press. It dives into the backstory of one of the minor characters who happens to be a ghost.”
With art and colors by Gwynn Tavares and lettering by Troy Peteri, in this story Caitlin and Alma have continued Mary and Frida’s work as union organizers, but when Caitlin has a disturbing dream about her childhood friend, Duncan the ghost, she decides to return to Boston to find out what’s wrong. Though it is a happy reunion with Samuel and Granville, something much more sinister awaits her and the team.
Ms. Holly-Rosing brings her background of TV and feature film writing to the world of comics along with a love of history and science fiction. The comic began online six years ago and went to print with a special 24 page edition a year later. The original series received an Honorable Mention at the 2013 Geekie Awards and was nominated for Best Comic/Graphic Novel in 2014. It has also been consistently nominated for best webcomic by the Steampunk Chronicles Readers’ Choice Awards in 2013, 2014 and 2015. The complete series is now available in trade paperback from Source Point Press along with the previous standalone stories, The Scourge of the Mechanical Men and The Spirit of Rebellion.
Ms. Holly-Rosing is a veteran of Kickstarter having successfully funded the last six campaigns for this series and surpassed her last funding goal of $3,855 to print The Spirit of Rebellion by over 400%. “I love Kickstarter. It has enabled myself and many other creators to achieve their goals.”
