A strange disease is silently wreaking havoc amongst the tiny land of Crepanquine. Nobody knows where it comes from or how to cure it, but its effects are as well known as they are feared. The Curse, as they call it, first makes its victims go insane. If the affected happen to be female, it turns their index finger into a magic wand with strange powers. If male, it turns them into the loyal minions of the afflicted women. They called them the appointed by the gods. When Rino’s mother and Xental’s sister fall under the claws of the Curse, together they decide to leave their fears behind and stand as allies against an obstacle impossible to overcome. Soon they’ll realise everything happens for a reason, and that the Curse represents the last twinkles of an old humanity on the verge of change.

Spanish, English, French and Italian.

Hi!

We are Caro Waro and Garbunka, creators of Crepanquine. The world of Crepanquine appeared for the first time in the art book Asteroid, and it happened to be our fan’s favourite, as well as ours. The concept arose simply by physically merging wizards and wands. Since then, the story of this world has become deeper and we are more than ready to capture it in pages.

The result? A dark and thrilling comic full of unique characters and of course, overflowing with magic.

SYNOPSIS

“The Curse? Nonsense! The Curse lives only in the legends of this land and its imagination. Women possessed by magical mushrooms! Do you honestly believe, as our friends the northerners say, the gods have returned to Crepanquine in search for vengeance? I think it’s time we start doing more productive things with our time. Listen to me now, I won’t say it twice: there is NO such thing as the Curse, and by all means, NO ONE has been cursed.

And now, I beg you, enjoy the concert.”

Rino Silene has no other interests in life beyond finishing his thesis and continuing to study as a History professor. His mother, Rosita, puts all her efforts in making sure his son doesn’t suffer any distractions. But she doesn’t quite stand living in such austerity, even less when their landlady, the twisted dressmaker Evangeline, makes fun of her.

In revenge of her mocking, Rosita steals one of Evangeline’s earrings without knowing they are infected with a disease she thought was mere fantasy: the Curse. Day after day, Rino will have to bear seeing his mother transform into a monster that is able to bring inanimate objects to life.

Miles away, sisters Xental and Emxa Baikan have just fulfilled their dream of living in The Thirst, a cosmopolitan city full of opportunities. When Emxa manages to stand out as a reputed singer she then accidentally falls victim to the Curse, and starts an odd cult around her concerts. Xental will be left alone in an unknown world, and the only assistance will come from a mysterious entity that appears only in her dreams.

Crepanquine describes the story of characters whose lives are constantly hindered by strange forces. In their tireless determination to fight against a fate that seems written, Rino and Xental will start a dangerous journey to bring their loved ones back.

If that possibility even exists.

CHARACTER DESIGN

PAGES

 

We know what a job well done entails and both the author and Spaceman Project are prepared. We love this medium and want to take it to another level where readers, authors, editors and booksellers are the protagonists. Therefore, we have taken small details into account and set a goal of raising an amount in keeping with what we offer. 

A maximum period of 15 months (after the campaign ended) is anticipated for the development of this work.

Finally, but no less important, all the illustrations presented in this campaign are provisional and are subject to modifications once the goal is reached and the work begins to be created. This will mainly only affect cover images, never the story and format of the work and the type of reward offered. Naturally, we are presenting a live project to be developed. Creativity has no limits and we are convinced that we should not stop improving, which is why we have a commitment to quality with our readers.

    CREPANQUINE / Estado del proyecto #3

    by Spaceman Project

    ¡Hola chicos!

    Somos Caro Waro y Garbunka, los autores del cómic Crepanquine. Como habéis visto en la última actualización de Spaceman Project, nos comprometimos a entregar el cómic antes del 30 de abril. Por desgracia, no hemos podido cumplir ese plazo pero podemos aseguraros que estamos trabajando muchísimo para que lo tengáis en vuestras manos cuanto antes.

    ¿A qué se debe el retraso? Básicamente a que hemos retocado páginas antiguas (particularmente las primeras y las promocionales) con las que estábamos insatisfechos. También dimos el cómic a leer a algunos compañeros nuestros y con sus opiniones y sugerencias mejoramos algunas partes para explotar todo lo que el cómic nos puede ofrecer.

    ¿Qué nos queda? Ahora mismo tenemos 94 páginas completas de las 120. Todas (las 120) están entintadas y casi todas están con las bases de color de los personajes, así que nos falta hacer los fondos de 26 páginas más.

    Cuando hayamos acabado las páginas restantes, y Spaceman tenga los materiales finales, el cómic pasará por las siguientes fases; corrección del texto, traducción, maquetación, rotulación, revisión de las maquetas y finalemente, impresión.

    Muchas gracias por la paciencia y el apoyo que nos habéis mostrado. Prometemos entregaros lo mejor de nuestro arte en Crepanquine.

    Podéis seguir el avance del cómic mediante este hashtag: #crepanquineupdate

    CREPANQUINE / Estado del proyecto #2

    by Spaceman Project

    CREPANQUINE vol.1 lleva creadas 86 páginas de cómic de 120 totales. Los autores están trabajando con esfuerzo en las páginas y con el propósito de mejorar la obra han revisado el cómic desde el inicio aplicando unas modificaciones que han mejorado la narrativa y este esmero se aprecia en el resultado. Por este motivo de revisión, el proyecto está sufriendo una pequeña demora en la parte creativa por lo que tenemos que aplazar de nuevo la fecha de lanzamiento a julio-agosto de 2018, aproximadamente.

    Los autores se han comprometido a realizar la entrega final del cómic el 30 abril/2018.

    En cuanto Caro y Garbunka nos entreguen las páginas finales, empezaremos nuestro trabajo de edición, traducción y diseño gráfico.

    Project launch

Caro Waro

La Sevillana Carolina Ibáñez de Aldecoa - más conocida como CARO WARO - es una artista enfocada en el arte de la Ilustración y el Diseño de Personajes.
Licenciada en BELLAS ARTES, comenzó su andadura ilustrando un Juego de Cartas llamado ÉPICA [DÁQORA] y siguió su camino trabajando como Concept Artist y Animadora en diversos juegos para móviles, como ilustradora en juegos como JAK AND POI o como Directora de Arte en la aplicación móvil THEINK.
Pero su logro más épico y reciente ha sido la auto edición de ASTEROID, un libro muy personal plagado de Diseño de Personajes, dando rienda suelta a su excesiva creatividad bajo la técnica de la acuarela. ASTEROID consiguió financiarse con éxito gracias al apoyo de sus - no precisamente pocos - seguidores a través de la plataforma KICKSTARTER.

Garbunka

Guillermo Ibáñez de Aldecoa -pseudónimo GARBUNKA- es el colaborador más cercano de los proyectos de Caro Waro. Licenciado en Ingeniería Robótica y actualmente estudiante de Game and Media Technology en la Universidad de Utrecht (Holanda), debutó como guionista y diseñador de ASTEROID en 2016. Guillermo mezcla su amplio trasfondo tecnológico con sus conocimientos en literatura experimental y clásica para encontrar realidades cercanas en mundos imposibles. Su máxima aspiración, considera, es difuminar la barrera entre lector y cómic para generar obras que permanezcan con nosotros incluso después de ser terminadas.
