Fund Paul Bolger's Hound on Kickstarter

As Shaenon Garrity’s review in the Comics Journal of two comics based on the same story (my own The Cattle Raid of Cooley and MK Reed’s About a Bull) reminds us, the legend of Cú Chulainn is open to all sorts of different interpretations. We’ve also seen Will Sliney’s Celtic Warrior and Colmán Ó Raghallaigh and Barry Reynolds’ Irish language version, An Táin.

Now Irish animator, film director and all-round creative talent Paul J Bolger is working on another, very different interpretation: Hound. The work in progress is stunning in its black and white design and its distinctive vision, but Paul needs funding to finish it and he’s running a campaign at Kickstarter to that end. Depending on how much you throw in the pot, you can receive digital prints of the characters, “making of” vlogs, and even appear as a background character in the book. So if you want to help see this project finished, you know what to do.
