In April of 2019 I wrote about writer/illustrator Paula Richey’s successful Kickstarter campaign for her original comic Soulbound: Issue 1. A brief foray into magic and terror, it showcased great art and sharp writing.
Now it’s time for Issue 2.
This is issue two, Escape, in which we get to know the second hero of our story, Torrin. Captured by an insane sorceress who intends to transform him into a monstrous slave, his only hope is to escape before she can complete her spells. But when Becca lands in his prison, he must find a way to save them both.
Paula was kind enough to give me a preview of Issue 2, and it’s already a lot of fun. Things get a lot more dangerous in just a few pages for Becca and Torrin, and the sneak peek has only whetted my appetite for more.
The future of publishing is indie, and what’s both welcome and refreshing about Paula Richey’s work is that her only agenda is to entertain, which is why we read things like comics about magical realms. Even at my age.
Check out the Kickstarter page for Soulbound Issue 2, and kick in some money for a fun comic.
