Get ready for the next installment of Richard Boom’s instant Kickstarter success, “SISTERHOOD“! Questions answered, secrets revealed! Love, betrayal, Mummies and Monsters and an epic battle – all in ONE intense issue. No nudity, No gore… just loads of fun, amazing art and a story spanning the centuries!
INTENTION: SISTERHOOD is a series of one-shot, stand-alone stories. Each comicbook will feature different artists, to ensure not only a high quality but also creating a platform for outstanding artists.
ISSUE ONE: the origin issue in which we saw the rising of the Sisterhood, the introduction of the Khepri god/computer and during a new adventure in which the Sisterhoods leader Rand is discovering he is not the only one residing in his own head! You can order this one as an Add-On.
ISSUE TWO: 28 story-pages in a 32-page book, 90 (or 115) grams paper stock! TWO stories, FOUR writers, TWO artists and ONE madman trying to make it into ONE comic!
Synopsis Main Story: Upon returning to his mansion, high-priest Dymonos makes a heart-wrenching discovery that not only lets him question his loyalty towards his master, the mighty god Khepri, but also sets him on a path of righteous revenge and destruction. Then again – sometimes, not all is at it seems. Brace yourselves for love, heartbreak, daddy-issues and all-out mayhem as we dive deeply into the Sisterhood’s ancient past and learn how Dymonos became the man/spirit he is today in a yarn we like to call “The Fall of Dymonos: Whom Gods Destroy”!
Synopsis Backup Story: Talah is hunting a human trafficker and taking a stance, like only Talah can.
Art from the first 21 page story, by German artist Markus von Renthe-Fink.
Synopsis: High-Priest Dymonos and his master-god Khepri are tricked in a full-out war, and love is both the cause as well as the key.

RICHARD BOOM: Project Leader/Creator
Richard Boom started out in the comic industry as your regular fanboy, just reading comics and enjoying it even more due to the internet and making contact with creators. As his contact list grew, so did his interest in the complete field of comic. Starting up a Bad Grrl Comics Fan club in 2001 was the first step to go further then his own living room. Soon thereafter he began setting up websites for Arthur Suydam, Eric Basaldua, Broadsword Comics and focussing on titles like Vampirella, Cavewoman, Hack/Slash and more… He even started working with the FACTS comicon organization where he also met the founder of Broken Frontier and shortly thereafter began doing headlines for this news site. Later he founded the website COMICSFORSINNERS which more resembles his prior BadGrrl fanclub. Nowadays Richard dabbles in Art Agency, sending out comic Press Releases and since 2019 publishing various comic books.
Markus von Renthe-Fink: Story Editor / story 1 penciller
Markus has loved comics and creating art since childhood. His road to creating comic books, though, took several detours. After graduation he had to admit to himself that it would be next to impossible to make a living by drawing comics in Germany, and relocating to the US wasn’t really an option, even though at this point his drawing abilities were quite good. So he spent the next 20 years in the dreary profession of a graphics deisgner. It took a pep talk from fan-favorite artist Greg Capullo during a book signing in Frankfurt to get Markus back on track; after being told that in the meantime, the “bullpens” at the publishers had ceased to exist: all you needed nowadays to break into comics were talent, a scanner and an internet connection. With newfound enthusiasm, determined to take the comic book world by storm (or, failing that, a gentle breeze), Markus set out to find a partner-in-crime – enter Richard Boom, who was happy to take Markus aboard. Initially (and rather inadvertently) he took on the role of story editor, trying to bring some sort of order and continuity to she sprawling wealth of material that represented the “Sisterhood” universe. Hungry to get his teeth into the actual creation of art, he took the script for a 10-page story apart at the seams (with the blessing of original author Viktor Kruithof) and hammered it into a full-length comic book story. These pages will see print as Sisterhood #2 sometime in the spring of 2020, and, as life sometimes comes full-circle, will feature a variant cover by none other than Greg Capullo.
Renee Rienties: story 2 penciller
Renee Rienties is an independent comic artist from the Netherlands.
She made her start in the world of comics in 2016 with her smallpress book “My Daily Life Comics” which was received well by her readers online and at comic conventions.
In 2017 her art took a dark turn, from funny cute gag comics to creepy bloody horror. Here she worked on a story in “Oyasumi” A manga collaboration she started with two fellow artists. Where she drew her comic “Distortia” Her creepy art will leave a chilling impression for you to remember.

RALF VAN DER HOEVEN is an autodidact if you ever seen one. Hailing from the Netherlands, he is a well-received artist in the fantasy- and comic-community.
After doing illustration work for Valkyrie and Artvlam he started a company with the Belgian Dominiek Vermandere called Lakoro. With Dominiek he’s co-owner and creator of the new comicbook series for all ages named: Troltrol. (www.troltrol.be)
The first dutch book was recently published and is available.
Besides that Ralf fills his time making several variant covers for Dark Dragon Books (The dutch-translated Deadpool and Lady Mechanika).
His dream of creating an original comicbook of his own is taking shape in his free time and besides that he’s putting together his first ever fantasy artbook via Dutch Publisher Dark Dragon Books Art Collection.
ART GRAFUNKEL is designer by day, doodlemonkey by night, Belgian Waffle by birth, and nerdy by nature.
His geeky artwork has been featured in VISIONS FROM THE UPSIDE DOWN: A STRANGER THINGS ARTBOOK (Del Rey), TRANSMETROPOLITAN: ALL AROUND THE WORLD (CBLDF), WORMWOOD: GENTLEMAN CORPSE (IDW) and he’s doodled sketchcards for STAR WARS GALAXY and MARS ATTACKS (Topps). He is a comicon-regular and brings smiles to folks he knows as well as folks he does not…
He also thinks it’s pretty pretentious, writing all of this third person.
ROBIN MIES is a Dutch illustrator, sketch card and comic artist.
In recent years he has made various sketch card sets under his own management, but he has also been able to draw for, among others, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2 and Thor: Ragnarok. Partly because of this, his illustrated blank covers are becoming increasingly popular.
DISCLAIMER: all contributing artists (Ebas, Ryp, Capullo etc) have agreed to me using their gifts to me under the condition that NO profit will be made. ALL profits will be going towards the creative team!
The comicbook is all written and penciled. This kickstarter is set up mostly for making sure the colorist will get paid and the book is printed.
Questions about this project? Check out the FAQ
Actually I have FOUR books all done like this, most of them even colored as well. So I want to come back here and make this a complete series of oneshots, showcasing new talents during this whole adventure!
About this particular project: I have decided to only do a regular cover and one variant cover. This makes me certain the printing will not be a too big of a deal.
Shipping will be done worldwide via the ultra-reliable German postal services as they reside just mere minutes away from my town. The extra perk of this, is the fact that Shipping via Germany is just as reliable as via my own country of the Netherlands, but cheaper for your wallet.
I am failry new at this Kickstarter-game obviously, with Sisterhood #1 being my “official” debut.
The complete art team is really excited about it and have already finished all the artwork (well, with the exception of all the awesome coloring and lettering and graphic design)!
Although all are well versed in the industry, we do understand that there are possible unforeseen issues such as:
Story Editing Corrections
Over-Robust Stretch Goal Fulfillment
Given this, I am very dedicated and committed to bring you an excellent comic book with quality products to ensure that the first impression to you, beloved backers, will be a great one.
