Written and illustrated by Karolyne Rocha, the seminal chapter of Balsamus, The Lost Lamb (12 pages), begins the twisting and turning tale of a warrior-general, Reithan, who, despite his past, ultimately finds redemption amid the eternal and unchanging characteristics of God. It is a thrilling and culturally rich Middle-Eastern fictional story, set against the historical tapestry of the interbiblical period, or the 400 years of prophetic silence between the Old and New Testaments.

ABOUT SUBSCRIPTION PAYMENT CHARGE DAY:
New Subscribers are charged again one month after the day they pledge, instead of being charged again on the 1st of every new month. That means, for example, that, if you pledge on the 25th of a month, you will be charged for the next payment on the 25th of the next month, and NOT on the 1st of the next month.
Presently, I explore the aesthetic of the comic books of the 70s and 80s, especially the Conan comics, which were the triggered to the definite rebirth of Balsamus in 2018.
The aesthetic mentioned is the finishing which involves the aged texture of the printed paper, donning the appearance of yellowish paper and some blemishes in black ink.
The colored illustrations will also simulate the limited coloring of the CMYK press of that time, where you can clearly see the mistakes and color limitations. This aesthetic brings a mixture of timeless nostalgia and an aesthetic that fits harmonically with retro comic books.
Well, as I presently work with commissions, I cannot dedicate myself integrally to the project. Thus, not only every support counts, but it is also an additional step so that I can sit on my chair and dedicate myself more to my middle eastern boys! Creating an universe is not an easy task- it takes time ( studying, training my drawing skills, writing, scenery studies, thumbnails, buying sketch materials, inking, coloring, developing the concept arts, and arts for marketing…. oh my, so much!).
I am also developing this project not only due to personal satisfaction,but also so that I can bring in it teachings and convictions that I have . . . after all, no project is born at random, right?
