This Week in Crowdfunding – ‘Casefile: Arkham’ is Raymond Chandler Meets H.P. Lovecraft

GameStop, Inc.

Our friends over at 01 Publishing are at it again. Kat Rocha, Josh Finney, and Patrick McEvoy have a couple of highly successful Kickstarter campaigns under their collective belt already, from the revisionist history of World War Kaiju, to the Lovecraft inspired prose anthology Whispers from the Abyss, each one blowing right past its funding goal. The reason: Great concepts executed well, with pledge incentives that bring you right into the world of the book. Between the three of them is a wealth of lovecraft inspiration and love; besides the aforementioned, acclaimed Whispers from the Abyss anthology, Patrick has worked extensively in the hell that H.P. created, providing art for the Call of Cthulhu game. What makes Casefile: Arkham different is the pulp noir detective element providing mystery and two-fisted action to go along with the Eldritch horror.

A hard boiled detective in Lovecraft’s most cursed city? What could go wrong?

Set in the mid-1940s, Case File: Arkham follows Hank Flynn, a down on his luck private eye who is back from the war and now working the mean streets of the most cursed city on Earth—Arkham, Massachusetts. And things only get worse for Flynn when a wealthy uptown socialite hires him to track down an artist by the name of Pickman. What begins as a simple missing persons case leads Flynn down a dark path of flesh eating ghouls, vengeful witches, and the notorious Innsmouth mafia.

Casefile: Arkham is the second collaborative project for Finney and McEvoy, and is intended to be the first chapter in a series of Hank Flyn, P.I. graphic novels. Ideally they’d like to tell the story in 88 full color pages, but if they surpass their funding goal they will extend the book to 116 pages, and include concept art and other goodies. There’s a reason Casefile: Arkham is a Kickstarter staff pick, and right now you can get in on the ground floor, and wind up with some great incentives while you’re at it.

The book is available in both print and digital editions, with a special Kickstarter only signed bookplate sketch edition as well. There are also bookmarks, signed and numbered Patrick McEvoy art prints both big and small, an Innsmouth Pub pack that includes a shot glass and car window sticker, ink or paint commissions, have yer ugly mug in the book, and of course a thank you in the credits. But that’s not all! There are plenty of unlockable stretch goal incentives as well, including an Arkham detective license and car window sticker, not to mention story upgrades. But only if they reach their original funding goal. Head on over and look evil right in the eye and back Casefile: Arkham now before the madness consumes you!

For more information, and a sneak peek at the book, go to www.casefilearkham.com and www.facebook.com/casefilearkham. Josh and Kat will be at the Long Beach Comic Expo February 27th through 29th at the 01 Publishing booth as well. Hit them up for more great books, and maybe some exclusive sneak peeks at Casefile: Arkham. But don’t tell them I said that.
