Ichabod Jones: The complete Lovecraftian dark-fantasy comic
A Lovecraftian dark fantasy horror-comedy inspired by H.P. Lovecraft’s Dreamlands and Cthulhu mythos but set in a Christian Apocalypse
- Current Funding: $15,988
- Funding Goal: $10,666
- Days Left: 26
- Link: Ichabod Jones: The complete Lovecraftian dark-fantasy comic
Ichabod Jones is about a mental patient that escapes an asylum and becomes a monster hunter during the Apocalypse, but doesn’t know if he’s killing monsters, humans, or if it’s all in his head the whole time. It’s a complete fantastical and psychological mindscrew.
Ichabod comes from a deep, almost primordial, place in my soul. It’s the part that devours movies like In the Mouth of Madness, Event Horizon, and Jacob’s Ladder, while still binging on Gravity Falls, Frankenweenie, and Army of Darkness. It’s the part that read Johnny the Homicidal Maniac and laughed hysterically at every gruesome scene.

After an uncanny event on a dark and stormy night, Sheriff Spivey has been on the hunt for any dog who dares to lay a paw into the borders of Winkle County. With help from his feline officers and recruitment efforts of Winkle citizens, the sheriff continues to add to his collection of dog tags and broken hearts.
Follow along on this adventure as Foley tries to find his friends and beloved owner Jerry. But why has he been asleep for so long and how can he safely return to a place that now hates his very existence?
