Your timing is divine! Right on time for a place at the table! Join us and be part of our very first steps as we're raising funds to produce the first issue of the King King saga. Let me tell you about us! Where should I start?

As you know, King has been cursed and Queen Karma kidnapped. What you don't know is that time is limited! If they don't touch each other again everything as they know it disappears. With the fate of the universe on their shoulders, follow the mind-bending misadventures of King and his sidekicks to the craziest and sickest corners of the galaxy on their way to save King's love!

The core idea behind the King King saga is for it to be a platform for artists to create together. Each participating artist illustrates a comic chapter encouraged to create inside his comfort zone without ever needing to change his personal art styles and creative mind set. This way we end up with a compendium of art that tells a powerful story, a playground of styles!

Every four pages, even when the flow of the story is at its highest the following artist comes to replace the previous one. Once we achieve your engagement in the thread of the story, this dance of styles just feels right. King, his companions and the world around them can even change appearance in the middle of an epic set piece! All of it to add a certain dynamic to what we believe will be an immersive experience. 

FA, King's city is located in one of many seeder planets existent across the galaxy, mostly a pit stop for dragons among other predatory threats. In this puny world, songs are sung and bedtime stories told on how each and every century a new bearer is destined to be revealed by heroically saving the queen-to-be on the day of her crowning. A mix between a once in a lifetime opportunity to celebrate the unveiling of a new hope and a cult-like ritual that everyone attends secretly expecting a bloodbath.

Almost one hundred years have passed since the last savior rescued princess Cat. ‘The Stinger Bearer’ cocooned by his vortex of bees, pulled off quite a show by wrestling a dragon ten times his size. That was before staining his follower’s memories of this heroic achievement on their nuptial night. After ejaculating, he got stuck inside her and when he tried to pull out it tore out all of his internal organs, killing him. Catastrophe, as the many queens that came before her, was forced to rule alone promoting an agrarian society in a peaceful world. Without actually ever having a king able to protect them from outside threats, FA had to forge a deal with some of the closest planets and have been gathering and trading food for protection since the dawn of time.

With a history of miscarried legacies and fallen legends, the fallings (inhabitants of FA) have long accepted their place in the bottom of the food chain and started growing quite fond of their tradition of queens. Losing a lot of numbers to the dragons but still with a lot less casualties, the living can provide for their families and ensure a slow but steady future. If you ask them, every and each falling will tell you his own version of what is to happen on the next crowning. As in every event, everyone is euphorically expecting to witness the turn of a new leaf, the long awaited “birth of the star”, they call it. 

It’s carved in stone as old as this planet; ‘The Shooting Star Bearer’ is going to descend from the skies and save princess Karma. That’s all they ask of him before stupidly dying or mysteriously disappearing as every other king. This always drunk, "that destroys things before figuring out how to use them" kind of guy with a natural addiction to the feminine body. Maybe coincidentally, the new bearer goes by the name of King and by being the future king of FA, that would have to make him the FA King King!

This first issue will be detailedly crafted by a powerhouse of talent, consisting of 11 of the more than 30 experienced workaholics giving life to this universe. King King is going to be like a sick children's book for grownups, either visually, plot wise or looked at from any other angle, King King is rising to defy the cookie cutter regime of the actuality! 

We advise you to put your seat belt on in the process of preparing for the amount of amazing content that we've been getting ready for you! Start this journey by checking all the mouth-watering rewards we've been putting together and help us on making all this a reality.

We've been working on a bunch of stretch goals that will be made public as we go so back us and help us sharing this campaign across the galaxy and behind! Spread the work, ALL HAIL KING KING!

Risks and challenges

I am confident that it will be a steady campaign with no major hiccups. The team is full of experienced professionals used to deliver consistent quality content on tight deadlines. Delays and issues are always a possibility but we'll do everything in our power to avoid them. For a transparent campaign I plan on constantly update our backers so you can be informed of the development as it happens. I want this to be our project!
