SimonBlood1

On February 26, 2016, artist Giancarlo Caracuzzo (Marvel, DC Comics, Delcourt, Dupuis, Image, IDW) launched a fundraising campaign for the creation of graphic novel “Simon Blood, Seventh Moon” at www.kickstarter.com

Simon Blood is an all-ages graphic novel inspired by Caracuzzo’s favorite movies and comics. If you liked Moebius, Uderzo, Miyazaki, Asterix, Arzach, Star Wars, and/or Indiana Jones, then you just might become a fan of Simon Blood.

Simon Blood will be a 54-page full-color book, that will include several covers, sketches and illustrations.

The book is being written and drawn by Caracuzzo, and colored by his daughter Flavia Caracuzzo. It is scheduled to be finished in August of 2016, and shipped out to backers in October.

 

 

SimonBlood2ABOUT THE BOOK

The idea for Simon Blood has been at the back of Caracuzzo’s mind for several years. Over time, it has become an imaginary world, where monsters, vampires, zombies, and anthropomorphic figures come to life. There are extraordinary landscapes, gloomy atmospherics, drama, action, and more than a few surprises. Inspired by classic tales of adventure, you will be amazed by the mythology, technology, and imagination that has gone into this story.

Geared toward all ages, this is a story that will entertain you and make you dream on.

This project is very important to both Caracuzzos. It’s the opportunity to realize their desire, an idea that unites them, and they need our help to make this dream come true.

 

 

THE WORLD

Simon Blood takes place on Harsac, a planet divided into two hemispheres, the North, where there is light, trees, lush forests, high mountains, rivers, lakes, and the sea, and inhabited by many people, elves, dwarves, trolls, fairies, and gnomes. Here dwell the people of Kashar, among them Simon Blood, a cheerful young ambitious lad, accompanied by a small dragon named Dalì.

On the other hand, the south hemisphere, is dominated by King Xe and Queen Oly, cruel and merciless rulers. The southern hemisphere is perpetually in darkness, a huge and dangerous place where vampires, zombies, werewolves, and terrible creatures fight constantly against the Northern hemisphere.
