Eternal Descent and Calabash Animation launch Animated Series on IndieGoGo Star studded heavy metal series from IDW Publishing puts music and comics in motion.
The Eternal Descent comic series from IDW Publishing has bridged the worlds of music and comics like no other, with an army of chart topping heavy metal stars including Joe Satriani, Wayne Static, Gus G, Arch Enemy, Periphery, Shadows Fall, and many more appearing throughout the saga.
In our continued effort to explore the unholy alliance between heavy metal and high fantasy, we’ve teamed up with Calabash Animation, the acclaimed animation studio led by Sean Henry and Wayne Brejcha, to bring you an animated reimagining of Eternal Descent!
Having tested our mettle with a 2 minute animated preview, we’re now in pre-production for a 22 minute pilot episode, which would realize Eternal Descent as a fully animated TV show. It’s our pleasure to announce that Mike Sizemore is handling the script, and if you love animation, fantasy, and heavy guitars, then this could be the show you’ve been waiting for!

While we aim to have a complete series commissioned by a network, we’ll be releasing the pilot online, to be enjoyed for free. The pilot will be launched as an episodic web series with 5 action packed installments!
Eternal Descent remains entirely creator owned and we want to include you, the fans, as much as possible. Sharing this message will be a huge help to our cause, but if you’d like to contribute directly we’ve created an awesome array of rewards, perks and experiences to show our appreciation. From signed comics to custom ESP Guitars, we’ve got you covered!
Bringing this project to life will be a creative challenge for all of us, and we want you to be a part of the production every step of the way. We’re going to be shooting exclusive behind-the-scenes footage to release alongside the animated series, so you’ll get to see how the animators work their magic and follow studio sessions with the incredible guest guitarists who have always been a part of our world. The pieces are in place, the descent begins!
