Graphic Novel Kickstarter Campaign Reaches Funding Goal in only one day!

John Mahoney finally reveals details of his latest graphic novel project to the world.

NORTH HOLLYWOOD, Los Angeles, California – March 14, 2016 – John Mahoney is a Visual Development Artist, professor, sculpture, and, now, a graphic novel writer/illustrator. Inspired by a near death experience, John has turned his life around with this passion project – “Zentropa.” The 108-page hardcover graphic novel is finally finished. Mahoney launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise capital to release the highly anticipated book to the public. 

This is a new Sci-Fi epic that pays homage to the classic old Heavy Metal Magazine comic strips. The story offers a psychedelic, mind-expanding, stream of consciousness for the reader. Viewers are encouraged to participate in the bizarre storytelling as two space explorers try to figure out what’s happening to their planet as odd, organic growths begin to appear everywhere. They aren’t sure if it’s an invasion from another planet or is it coming from their own planet! Join Mahoney on an epic journey filled with unexpected twists and turns.


“John Mahoney’s Zentropa is a surrealist space journey with an impeccable art style that is reminiscent of the glory days of Heavy Metal magazine.”
 ~ Steve Wang, Creature Creator – The Predator, Gremlins 2, The Devil’s Advocate. 

Once the campaign ends, Mahoney will create a website so that people from different parts of the world can share their personal story of what they think “Zentropa” means.
