What The Gnomes Know
A Comics Anthology
- Current Funding: $2,778
- Funding Goal: $2,500
- Days Left: 12
- Link: What The Gnomes Know
Gnomes hold a mysterious position in folklore and modern pop culture. Some say they are tiny inventors trying to navigate a human-sized world, while others say they are bold adventurers exploring the realms of fantasy. But, unfortunately, we still don’t know much about them, and even what you think you know may not be true!
We have assembled a team of talented cartoonists to reveal more about these elusive creatures and show you gnomes’ various sides. Be they post-apocalyptic scavengers, necromancers, or even detectives, these stories show there’s more to these little folk than you ever knew!
The brainchild of CanonWrite Productions from cartoonists Rainer Kannenstine and Ben Wright-Heuman who specialize in organizing comic anthology projects that bring together talented creators from all over.

A GRAPHIC NOVEL ADVENTURE BEYOND THE HUMAN
Six youth awaken in a surreal landscape, unaware of how they got there, their memories hazy and jumbled. An ominous voice informs them; They are dead and this is Hell. Drama and conflict quickly blossom, and from them surprising phenomena emerge. Johnny, Barbie, Arthur, Dexter, Willow and Christine will come together, recall the history they share, and discover their destiny, together, IN HELL.
Discover the first chapter in an epic adventure within an evolving, surreal fantasy realm. Featuring intense, sophisticated adult content, IN HELL is…
- 30 finalized pages (the first chapter) ready to be set lose upon the world, AND the promise of an epic, unfettered saga that will unfold in the near future, with your help.
- A story about human dignity, human power; witness real, royal love triumph over adversity, experience a gateway towards a grander world.
- “Beetlejuice” meets “The Breakfast Club” meets “Made in Abyss” (+ a dash of “Power Rangers” thrown in for good measure). Rated hard R. Limitless in what it will dare to show.
- Complex storytelling/art; unlike any book you´ve ever seen, each panel dense with thought and detail; built to be the gift that keeps on giving.
- Part of the “Hell” saga: I am using this space to introduce to you other works; “Secret Reunion In Carfax Lodge” and “(Not) Freak Squeal”). These graphic novels are connected to the new series and deal with many of the same themes and subjects. Although it is not imperative to be familiar with them to understand “In Hell”, a far greater vision can be accessed if you do go thru them all.
IN HELL about the thrill that comes from juxtaposing the familiar, perhaps even quaint, with the alien, the exotic. This includes exploring the alien WITHIN the mundane, for example, discovering the hidden, previously unseen depths inside widely known figures, such as the pompadour-sporting “rebel without a cause”.
