The Southeast Asian comic book scene is rapidly growing and Crimson Star is just further proof of that. This Kickstarter project is for a 77-page and fully-illustrated comic book/graphic novel with amazing art by Singaporean artist Tasha Leah Santiago.
The story in Crimson Star: Book One is set in the late ’80s and follows Singaporean journalist Fandi in the early years of his budding career in New York, witnessing and reporting a phenomenon still alien to him: the advent of superhero crime fighting! While superheroes have soared across the clouds for a good six decades in this world, Fandi’s homeland of Singapore has had the fortune of being free of super-powered encounters in this period.
