Wonderland is in ruins and it's up to Dorothy and Alice to stop the evil Queen of Hearts' rampage before Oz is next!
We're all mad here...
The idea of a Wizard of Oz/Alice in Wonderland crossover has been circulating in my head for about six years. I had the individual pieces but, as a whole, they didn't gel. So it slowly stewed until one day there was the inevitable "ah-ha!" moment and the missing element came to be that brought the entire concept together! Since then I've progressed on writing it all out from beginning to end. Now, I could tell you the "ah-ha!" moment but that would take a lot of the excitement out of the story. Trust me, you'll appreciate it much more when you can experience it for yourself.
This story, illustrated through the amazing talents of Simon Rosati, will truly be an adventure for generations to come. It's the tale of two young girls, both with extraordinary experiences of their own, who must set aside petty differences to stop the diabolical Red Queen of Hearts from her destructive rampage that has already ruined Wonderland and now threatens Oz.
This is a completely original story based on characters and events from the original books, "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and "Through The Looking-Glass" written by Lewis Carroll, and "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" written by L. Frank Baum. Both are safely in the realm of public domain.
The Kickstarter Factor
We're on kickstarter because we have an amazing story to tell and would love the opportunity to commit to this full time for a release beginning in February, 2013.
If you show us your support, we can deliver an amazing product full of lush visuals and a quality creative element rarely seen in any entertainment medium.
This drive is to raise the money for the first two issues of an intended 4-issue story. We decided to start only with issues 1 and 2 in order to keep our budget requirement as low as possible to raise our chance of success.
We will run a second campaign after release of the first two issues to finish the last two. If we're fortunate enough to raise more than $14,000 on this campaign, we will automatically complete issues 3 and 4 and also provide them to all of our backers at the same level.
