Brand new indie comic series The Kill Journal is gathering a lot of steam in its Indiegogo campaign, and we got the chance to talk to one of its artists, Famoe, about his work on the book. Check it out!
Writer and filmmaker Adam Lawson has been putting out fantastic work for years, from shows like Escape the Night and comics like The Eighth. He has recently been putting a lot of time and energy into creating comics with his new company, Failed Superheroes Club. The goal of this company is to create stories that feature heroes with flaws. Considering nobody is perfect, it’s the perfect premise for some exciting stories.
Failed Superheroes Club also brings talented creators from around the world to lend their talents to these stories and get their work out to the masses. One such creator, who has worked on some pages of a new series called The Kill Journal, is Fabiano Montesano, better known as the rapper Famoe. Besides his music work, he also has an amazing talent for tackling everything from line work to coloring. However, his contributions to The Kill Journalextend beyond the colors he provides.
As Famoe is a musician, he has also worked on an exclusive tie-in album for the book, and its first single titled „I’m a King“ has gained massive success on all music streaming services. The book’s exclusive album will also be included with the comic’s hardcover release in 2021, as part of the book’s Indiegogo campaign (a campaign that has already exceeded 100% of its goal).
We recently sat down for a chat with Famoe about his work on The Kill Journal and some of his inspirations for the horror-themed title; his answers had us diving into all forms of media and even the potential that the book has for television!
