World of Webcomics: Boston Metaphysical Society launches Kickstarter project

Madeleine Holly-Rosing and Emily Hu’s Steampunk webcomic Boston Metaphysical Society launched a Kickstarter project last month. The creators are looking to reach a $25000 goal by November 15th to help fund the final 3 issues of the mini-series and collect all 6 issues into a softcover collection.

Boston Metaphysical Society features the protagonists Samuel Hunter, an ex-Pinkerton detective, his spirit photographer partner Caitlin O’Sullivan, and scientist Granville Woods in their quest to stop the psychic entity “The Shifter” from causing murder and mayhem. Set in a steampunk Boston of 1895 the story so far features impressive writing from TV, film, and novel writer Holly-Rosing, and sumptuous art from Hu. The creative team is rounded out by colourists Gloria Caeli and Fahriza Kamaputra, and letterer Troy Peteri.

If you like steampunk, ghostly detective tales, or just good storytelling you’ll love Boston Metaphysical Society. And with some great rewards on offer for the various pledges I definitely recommend you check it out.

Born in the North West of England and now living in North Somerset his interest in comics started at an early age by reading the cartoons in weekend newspapers – a particular favourite being Calvin & Hobbes. His interest grew when he discovered the only comic shop in his home-town, which led him to Vertigo, the early incarnation of Image, as well as Batman, a character which remains a favourite to this day. He also loves crime and noir fiction, film and TV of all kinds, and music of all types. Writing and blogging takes up much of his spare time and he hopes to one day publish his long-gestating crime novel.
