FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Marvel/DC cover artist Jeehyung Lee has launched the Kickstarter campaign for the final chapters of his new horror comic GUMAA – The Beginning of Her.
The creator-owned series has garnered rave reviews from fans and industry professionals, including James Tynion IV (Something is Killing the Children, Nice House on the Lake) and Brian Pulido (Publisher Coffin Comics, creator of Lady Death).
Check out the Kickstarter for GUMAA:
GUMAA – which means “exorcism” in Korean – tells the story of a young Khalida’s escape from drugs and prostitution and her transformation into the high priestess of a cult warring against infected humans called MAAGI.
Lee, who has built an international following for his beautiful and dramatic cover art, drew inspiration from films like Constantine and The Dark Knight when creating this dark supernatural thriller. The final issues bring the conflict to an exciting conclusion as Khalida faces off against her young nemesis, a combat-trained warrior with a hidden connection to Khalida’s past.
The campaign features stunning covers from Jeehyung Lee, as well as limited first-print covers by Peach Momoko, Sozomaika, Ben Oliver, Puppeteer Lee, Ivan Tao, Leirix Lee, and Clayton Crain.
