‘Wailing Blade’ Slashes It Way Onto Kickstarter

by James Ferguson

ComixTribe has hit Kickstarter for the first collection of Wailing Blade, the dark sci-fi fantasy comic written by Rich Douek and illustrated by Joe Mulvey. This features the first four issues of the series in a softcover trade paperback (available later in the direct market), an exclusive “virgin” variant softcover, and a limited edition foil-enhanced die-cut cover hardcover. Can you guess which one I went with?

The Headtaker, feared executioner and wielder of the legendary Wailing Blade, kills every man who meets his gaze. And, right now, he’s looking at Tychon, an upstart bandit prince fighting to save his father from the chopping block. An oversized first issue with so much skull-splitting action, you’re guaranteed to lose your head over it!
I covered Wailing Blade when it was released in single issues. It’s a fun series full of twists and turns. Plus, that sword is no joke. It’s massive and terrifying. This first volume is just scraping the surface of this story so I’m eager to see it continue.

ComixTribe knows how to run a great Kickstarter campaign and this one looks to be no exception. The rewards include the aforementioned versions of the book, single issues, enamel pins, t-shirts, and an exclusive collector’s box with a ton of goodies inside. The campaign runs through November 20th, 2020 and is already about halfway through its funding goal.
