This first issue is a silent descent into one person's nightmare, as our protagonist enters the titular Butterfly House -- and soon discovers they may never be able to leave. This is a deeply personal story for Paul, part existential horror story, part allegory for Paul's own discovery of their gender identity.
The Butterfly House will take you places you will not expect, and leave you pondering its implications long after you've reached the last page.
Zoop had a chance to sit down with Paul to discuss Butterfly House and other stuff. Check it out:
Paul Allor is a comic book writer best known for their work on properties likeTeenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, GI Joe and Mighty Morphin Power Rangers (for which they received national recognition for their work in developing the Death Ranger, a non-binary villain in the Power Rangers universe). They've also developed a number of creator-owned comic books, including Monstro Mechanica, Past the Last Mountain and the award-winning queer monster love story Hollow Heart. Paul lives in Indiana with their roommate, a blind dachshund.
Juan Romera is a comic artist and comic colorist based in Argentina. His career began 15 years ago, in fanzines in Argentina, Brazil, and Spain. Then he went on to indie comics in the United States, where he published in IDW, Monkeybrain, Comics Experience, Desperado Publishing, Diablo Comics, Antarctic Press and many others. He continues to draw comics every day for various international projects and some personal ones. Juan lives in Bahia Blanca City, with his wife, daughter, and dog.
Claire Napier is a critic, cartoonist and comics editor in England. Find her at clairenapier.com.
Interiors and cover are completely finished. If we reach the stretch goals and expand the comic a bit, it may require some additional art. Regardless, we expect the comic to be ready to head to the printer a month after the campaign. Printing, manufacturing and shipping should take around two more months, so delivery of rewards is expected to be done in June 2023.
The pandemic has shown that certain conditions are simply out of anybody’s hands. However, Zoop will always be here to communicate with backers should any delays occur, if there’s confusion about delivery, or if any other concerns pop up.
A few short answers to how this works.
