Kickstarter Spotlight: FRACTURED REALMS — A Norse Horror Anthology

Dublin-based comic collective Limit Break Comics recently launched a Kickstarter campaign for its new Norse horror anthology FRACTURED REALMS.

About the book:
The darkest nights of Fimbulwinter are upon us, Ragnarök isn’t far behind, and the Nine Realms are falling… welcome to
Fractured Realms, the new anthology from Limit Break Comics. Norse mythology meets contemporary horror in this 24-story collection from Irish and international creators, totalling 96 pages.

Limit Break has previously successfully crowdfunded two other myth-inspired anthology books: TURNING ROADS in 2021, and DOWN BELOW in 2022. FRACTURED REALMS will feature stories by over 50 comic creators and is due for publication in the winter of 2023. The book is edited by Limit Break’s own Paul Carroll and Gary Moloney, and is supported by the Arts Council of Ireland.
