The story incorporates supernatural elements from different cultures. Along the way, you'll be introduced to monsters and characters inspired from African, European, and Native American myths, folklore, and religion. This blend is what we call Creole Magic.
The story introduces us to a sorcerer named Jonas, and explores what happens when his life is violently taken away from him by the monsters of New Orleans. Jonas is a young blues musician deep seated in that New Orleans supernatural world. Someone from that supernatural world puts a bounty on his head that not only changes Jonas’ life, but also the course of the entire supernatural world. Jonas is pulled back from the dead, and desperately needs to find out who put the bounty on him.
Crescent City Monsters was created in 2017, and started out as a web comic series. After building up a fan base, Dream Fury Comics launched a crowdfunding campaign in 2018 to fund the printing of issue one. Following the first successful campaign, two more successful Kickstarters were funded for the printing of issues two and three. The creative team consists of Haitian-American writer Newton Lilavois and Filipino artist Gian Carlo Bernal.
