Welcome to Rubicon Comics!

Thank you for stopping by! My name is G.A. Lungaro, writer and founder of Rubicon Comics and its first title, Isidora and the Immortal Chains.

This is a story of a young woman born in Ancient Rome who was spirited away by The King in Yellow to be his herald. Now Isidora is free of her master and seeks to protect the innocent from the Old Ones, save humanity from itself, and perhaps regain her humanity along the way. I call this genre the Lovecraftian Dark Heroverse, melding ideas from the Lovecraft mythos and the amazement from superhero comics.

Issue #1 of Isidora completed a successful Kickstarter Campaign in August 2020 and Issue #2 Kickstarter Campaign ended on 7/16/21 raising nearly $6800 with 134 backers!

The Future

There has always been a plan to finish this inaugrial story arc of Isidora as well as the dream of a Rubicon Comics universe, the Dark Heroverse.

We have completed 2 issues and there is at least 3-4 more to finish this arc. My initial plan was to release each issue as a 24 page book with successive campaigns on Kickstarter. Life has gotten in the way as it often does.

My new plan in hopefully in the near future to launch a new campaign but instead of doing just Issue 3, completing the entire arc as print it as a complete graphic novel. I will update here and on my social when that will occur so stay tuned. Purchasing back issues here and bring in new readers helps to accomplishing this goal.
