Kickstarter Spotlight: Crucifix Executioner & Capable

Here we have two very different titles, both of which I’ve backed on Kickstarter. They both have some interesting concepts, both coming from totally different directions. Take a gander at what we’ve got…

  • Crucifix Executioner
  • Duncan Cunningham– Creator, Writer, Editor
  • Aaron Cassidy- Writer
  • Armand C. Rusinov- Artist, Designer, Animator, Motion Graphics, Lettering
  • Ignacio Vega- Artist (issues 1-4)
  • Igor “Chakal” Teixeira- Artist (issue 5)
  • Armando Jasmin Jr- Colorist (issues 5-12)

Brought up in a criminally corrupt town, local psychic Glen Parsons is no stranger to crime, but when his beautiful wife and unborn child are brutally murdered and he is left seriously wounded; something snaps. Detective Lance Steel is a corrupt cop whom uses his badge to exploit the innocent and immoral. He soon crosses paths with Glen and finds himself battling the religous xenophobe’s furore. As more and more bodies show up bearing Glen’s mark, a relentless criminal investigation is unleashed, entangling Steel and everyone around him. His psychic ability was once a tool Glen used to help the desperate, but now with a haywire brain, the line between good and evil, sanity and insanity, blur in a crescendo of blood-splattered violence.

Pretty cool, huh?

In the last stretch, just over 24 hours to go on this one, it caught my eye and wouldn’t let go… There’s a lot of work that went into Crucifix Executioner, and I’ve got high hopes that it holds up once I get a chance to read it. I’ll keep you all posted.

Next up, we take a couple steps out of the darkness for something that puts a big focus on inclusivity…

  • Capable 1-3
  • Jonathan Hedrick– Creator & Writer
  • Gino Kasmyanto- Pencils & Inks
  • Periya Pillai- Colors
  • Jérôme Gagnon- Letters
  • Dominic Pirozzi- Vairant cover artist

Derik Davidson is just an average high school kid. He’s awkward, shy,  bullied, and he uses a wheelchair. But one day Derik suddenly has the  ability to run super fast! What will Derik do with his new power and  what happens when more people wake up capable?!

This one has a pretty cool concept, not something that you see explored every day in any kind of media. I’m really interested in seeing where it goes and how it all plays out…
