After successfully funding the first two issues of Noir City through Kickstarter, writer Cody Walker is back with a decidedly different project: Everland, a collection of four connected tales set in a dark fantasy world that will likely be familiar.

Walker has collaborated with a different artist on each of the stories: Chris Yarbrough on “Surviving Everland,” in which a fairy kidnaps a boy, who must survive in a jungle; Nate Peters on “The Boy-God Horror,” in which a terrified pirate fights the Boy-God; Ryan Wheaton on “Mermaid Love,” in which a shipwrecked pirate finds unlikely love; and Nathan Judah on “Monster Slayer,” in which an Iroquois girl seeks revenge against a giant crab for the death of her father.

Kickstart My Art | Noir City #1

With just nine days to go, collaborators Cody Walker (Keeping the World Strange: A Planetary Guide), RG Valerius and Allen Byrns are in the home stretch of their Kickstarter campaign for Noir City #1, the debut of “an intertwining tale” involving mysterious characters, culminating in “resolution of the great mystery of who murdered The Miracle, the hero of a forgotten age.”

While co-writers Walker and Valerius are wanting to keep details of the story rather … mysterious– “The issue introduces readers, in true noir fashion, to a lost soul who finds himself thrust on the fringe of a mystery that he knows nothing about and no one around him can even recall that it exists” — you can get a sense of the central characters on the comic’s website and on the Kickstarter page, which also provides a look at Byrns’ rather Templesmith-esque art. The campaign is $3,135 toward its $4,500 goal, which will go toward the production and printing of the 28-page full-color first issue.

Pledge rewards range from access to exclusive digital content and a “Vote Noir” poster to participation in a Skype RPG game and original sketches. The campaign ends Nov. 7.
