Ominous Press and Creation.Ink are back on Kickstarter for the second volume of the dieselpunk horror-adventure Beasts of the Black Hand. The new graphic novel, subtitled The Viking League comes from creator Paul Harding, writer Ron Marz, artist Matthew Dow Smith, and colorist Nanjan Jamberi. It's a direct sequel to the first volume.

The Kickstarter campaign is to fund the release of a 64-page oversize hardcover, just like the first volume, so they should sit nicely next to each other on the shelf. The plan is for the second volume to be released in December 2020.

Beasts of the Black Hand is set at the close of the First World War in a world where dieselpunk technology is transforming everything we know. Where the first volume introduced us to British secret agent Oswald Rayner as he assassinated the Mad Monk Rasputin, this one follows him and his team as they battle the Black Hand in Eastern Europe where the fascist Viking League is rising to power.

If you missed the first volume, you can get a copy of that in addition to the new book through the Kickstarter campaign. There are also exclusive covers, single-issue comics, sculptures, prints, t-shirts, and more. The campaign runs through August 13th, 2020.

I know I backed the campaign for the first volume, but I don't think I ever read it. I'll have to dug up that PDF before this campaign finishes so I can catch up.
