Boston Metaphysical Society Kickstarter Is Building Up Steam

If you haven’t checked out Boston Metaphysical Society yet, you definitely should. I enjoyed my time with Chapter 1 (You can read my full review here.) and when I have more time I’d be more than happy to catch up on the other five chapters I haven’t read yet. It’s a great book by writer Madeleine Holly-Rosing with stylish art by Emily Hu featuring great characters set in a steampunk world full of mystery, intrigue, action, and excitement. I was delighted to hear that the Kickstarter campaign for Boston Metaphysical Society was 100% successfully funded after only two days! That’s fantastic. As of this writing, they’re close to doubling their original goal, but don’t let that stop you from contributing; independent creators can always use any help they can get, and there’s still some awesome rewards and stretch goals you can go after. The money goes straight towards a printed collected edition of the six issue miniseries, as well as a brand new, never before told short called Hunter-Killer.

Here’s more information straight from their Official Press Release:

“BURBANK, CA. Madeleine Holly-Rosing, writer/creator of the comic BOSTON METAPHYSICAL SOCIETY announced the launch of her campaign to fund the printing of the trade paperback of the steampunk supernatural six issue mini-series. The trade will include a bonus ten page sequential art short story called, Hunter-Killer. “I’m very excited to finally be able to offer Boston Metaphysical fans a trade paperback and introduce three new characters to them in the short story which also features an airship battle.”

“With art by Emily Hu and colors by Gloria Caeli, the story is about an ex-Pinkerton detective, a spirit photographer, and a genius scientist who battle supernatural forces in late 1800’s Boston. The comic also includes such notable historical figures as Alexander Graham Bell, Thomas Edison, Nikola Tesla, and Harry Houdini as part of the story line. “I feel so honored to be working with such an outstanding team. You’d never guess that this was everyone’s first book with the exception of Troy and Shawn, our letterers.” The comic 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.”

“With an MFA in Screenwriting from UCLA, Ms. Holly-Rosing brought 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 four years ago and went to print with a special 24 page edition a year later. Ms. Holly-Rosing is a veteran of Kickstarter having successfully funded the last three campaigns for this project.”
