I.C.U. caught up with creator Drew Krevi to get the details on his mysterious graphic novel - Island 19 - Now funding on IndieGogo
Can the Captain stop the plans of the Nazis and uncover the many other mysteries of the island as well as save his own skin? That's what you'll learn while on Island 19!!
Some inspirations for the story are pretty easy to spot, but are there any we might not so easily see?
Oh yes! The great thing about this mysterious island is that very little is what it seems. Nazis? Pirates? Natives? Lost Airmen? Other Random Castaways? A miraculous healing pond? A weapons cache with items from throughout history? How did these people and items get to the island? Was it chance? Or is someone responsible for bringing them to the island? Speaking of the island, why is it not charted? Why is it only accessible through unnatural means?...a freak electrical storm in this case!
So, yes. There are a great deal of "inspirations" that lead to an even greater mystery that is actually based on real traditions that most people today believe in.
Now that the book is fully funded and will definitely be getting out to backers, what do you see in the future for yourself? More crowdfunded comics?
I really hope I can do more crowdfunded books! Being able to write and illustrate a single indie book allows me a freedom to tell the stories that interest me and I think others as well. As a matter of fact, I think it would be difficult to go back to illustrating for other writers...not that there are not other great stories out there to draw, but writing and illustrating for ones self sort of spoils a creator!
