‘Lord Of The Rings’ Gets A Nordic Skew In Magnetic Press’ ‘Wahcommo’

by James Ferguson

Magnetic Press has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the release of Wahcommo, a new dark fantasy graphic novel from artist Luis NCT. It’s described as Lord of the Rings with a Nordic skew. The campaign will feature an exclusive variant hardcover by artist Karl Kerschl. Wahcommo is filled with monsters, trials, mythical cities, and fast-paced adventure all mixed with a coming-of-age identity drama.

“We’re always looking to bring the hottest titles and talent ‘discoveries’ to the English-language stage, and we were immediately hooked by Luis NCT’s work the minute we first saw Wahcommo in Angouleme. It is a perfect fit with Magnetic’s slate of visually dynamic, conceptual aesthetic, absolutely deserving of a premium hardcover presentation. And being able to work with Karl Kerschl, co-creators of one of our favorite North American comics Isola, on the campaign-exclusive variant makes this project even sweeter,” says publisher Mike Kennedy.

Fans that back the Kickstarter campaign on the first day, October 20th, 2020, will receive a free linen cardstock print of Karl Kerchl’s cover art. Other rewards include signature plates, the aforementioned variant cover, and a super-deluxe leather-bound edition limited to only 200 copies.
The Wahcommo Kickstarter campaign runs through November 12th, 2020.
