It's rare that I get a press release about a Kickstarter project that has already secured its funding.  Before now, I've had one (R.E.M.).  Fortunately, that number just went up with Resurrectionist, the new graphic novel from brother and sister team Jaime and Elena Carrillo and Here There be Monsters Press.  The book is based on a real sect of Crusaders from the 12th century reimagined as werewolves ordained by God to consume dead sinners on the battlefields.  After getting overfunded through Kickstarter, the graphic novel is now available in both digital and print formats through LookingLand.com.

Here's the full synopsis from the publisher:

Resurrectionist is a story about legacies, honor, and the changeful nature of all things. Teodors Lind is a centuries' old Hound of God; a creature ordained to save souls by eating the flesh of the damned. But the world is industrializing; science is overtaking superstition and the secret Order to which he belongs has long since lost its way. He hides in plain sight with his wife and children, but he can never escape the purpose for which he was wrought or give up the Brotherhood to which he was bound. In the small town of Clement, Pennsylvania, evil stalks the streets, fear rules, and Teodors invites the horrors of his past into his home even as he tries to keep it all well behind him. (150 pages full color)

 

I haven't read the previous work of the Carrillo siblings, but this sounds intriguing.  Werewolves are primed for a comeback amidst the piles of zombies currently clogging up the pages of every other horror comic.  Plus, how badass is that cover? What do you think of Ressurectionist?
