Crowdfunding Vet Back on Kickstarter With New ‘Boston Metaphysical Society’ Installment

Friday, April 2, 2021
Boston Metaphysical Society: The Book of Demons

Madeleine Holly-Rosing has launched her ninth Kickstarter campaign, this time for Boston Metaphysical Society: The Book of Demons. It’s the latest in a series of graphic novels that she’s described as a Victorian-era take on The X-Files. It’s set in an alternate-history version of the U.S. where the protagonists battle supernatural forces. In this one, medium and spirit photographer Caitlin is kidnapped by a wealthy, powerful family and forced to enslave demons.

The author says it’s a continuation of her previous story, Ghosts and Demons, but can be read as a standalone adventure.

“I wanted to delve deeper into the history of demons in my alternate history of the United States,” she says. “It was also a great opportunity to solidify Alma, an African-American scientist, as a regular part of the team.”

Holly-Rosing is the creator and writer of the series. As with the previous installment, Gwynn Tavares is the artist and colorist and Troy Peteri handles lettering.

The author has also established herself as an expert on crowdfunding for independent creators. She’s written a book on the topic and has offered workshops and consulting services.

Her latest campaign launched March 30 and met its US $4200 fundraising goal in six hours. It runs through April 29. See the Kickstarter page for more info.
