Random Encounter Comics is run by Adam Ma and Colin Tan, who together can sing the main theme of Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater -- just not very well. Fortunately this Patreon page is dedicated to their passion for storytelling rather than their passion for Tactical Espionage Action.
Folklore is a superhero horror story that explores the aftermath of an era where the world’s greatest heroes have become the world’s deadliest threat in the blink of an eye. Most heroes are stripped of their powers, and the ones who remain are left twisted into shadows of their former selves -- wandering the land crazed and without purpose. Survivors must band together to build new lives in the aftermath, but the more time passes the harder it is to remember the difference between history and the legends that remain.
Over two years of planning have gone into the creation of Folklore and we’re glad to finally be at a stage where production can move smoothly. Nothing will stand in the way of seeing Folklore come to life, but with your help we can work a little harder to give this exciting story the production quality it deserves.
Most importantly Random Encounter Comics wants you to enjoy the world we’ve created for you, dear reader. To help make our goals transparent we’ve created this handy bulleted list so that you’ll know exactly what you’re getting into when subscribing to our work:
- A single issue of Folklore takes approximately two months to produce, with all of the literary and artistic work handled by Adam and Colin.
- A single issue of Folklore averages around 18-25 pages, fully colored.
- Digital issues will be distributed to all pledges at the 2.00 Tier (or higher), with future print copies made at the completion of each story arc (minimum 60+ pages).
- The first issue of Folklore has already been created and is ready for viewing! Supporting this Patreon means supporting the work we’ll continue to create. You can read Folklore's ongoing story for free at folklorecomic.com
