Top Cow announced this morning at the San Diego Comic Con that is has launched a Kickstarter campaign with recording artist September Mourning to bring a huge multimedia project to life as part of September Mourning’s new album.
“For me, the project is a story, a theatrical art piece,” September explains on the artist’s website. “Music is the backbone, but for this to work, it has to include the imagery and the narrative all symbiotically linked into the whole. Music taps into your innermost being. There’s something very intimate and personal about it.”
The character of September Mourning is a human-reaper hybrid, who feels the need to give some human souls a second chance, and thus toys with Fate. To expound on this narrative, September is working with iconic comic book artist Marc Silvestri, who started out on the original X-Men comics and went on to form Top Cow Productions (Witchblade, The Darkness). Together, they are putting together the story of September Mourning in graphic form, to accompany, and enhance the musical message.
In addition to input from Silvestri, Sumeyye Kesgin will also provide art for the book, which will be written by Mariah McCourt.
As soon as the Kickstarter goes live, we’ll update this story with the appropriate links for those of you who want to contribute to this crowdfunding campaign.
