"I've re-read Anathema five times now, and it gets better each time," said ComixTribe publisher Tyler James. "This is a perfect first issue to what promises to be an outstanding series by Rachel Deering and Chris Mooneyham. We're thrilled to welcome Anathema to the tribe!"
Anathema is a six issue limited series horror comic that tells the story of Mercy Barlowe, a tormented young woman with a dark side. She must fight through treacherous lands and unspeakable horrors to reclaim her lover's soul, which has been stolen by members of a sinister cult, bent on resurrecting a terrible and ancient evil. Even Deering is happy she's got her book in with ComixTribe.
"I've believed in ComixTribe from the start. After getting into the comic scene, I noticed that ComixTribe was a huge presence in #comicmarket, so I was already convinced of their dedication to the medium. I'm happy to have found a publisher that supports my vision."
The Kickstarter campaign has only four days left and is currently 97% funded. To get that last 3%, two new ComixTribe-themed reward levels have been added.

There's no publication date for Anathema as of yet, but early indications are pointing to fall.
"Vampires vs. werewolves in a love story that sticks with you long after you've put the book down? What's not to love?" said ComixTribe Editor-in-Chief Steven Forbes. "Rachel's Anathema brings diversity and bredth to the line of ComixTribe books, while maintaining and enhancing our growing reputation as a publisher of quality indepedent titles."
