We have launched this Kickstarter for our new mini-comic; an original, beautifully illustrated dark fable entitled Great Beast. 

In 2016 we successfully funded the printing of our comic Heart of Millyera: Prelude, the first 18 pages of our ongoing webcomic. The campaign was remarkably successful, being over 400% funded.

With your help, we hope to publish Great Beasts, which was created as part of the 2017 Banksia Project mentorship program, which is sponsored by Supanova Pop Culture Convention, where we will be guests in Adelaide in November!

The mini-comic has been completed, and as much as we wish to cover costs, we also wish to gauge interest in preparation for printing the comic. By backing this project, you will receive a signed copy of the comic delivered to your door! 

You can even choose to collect your reward in person from one of our upcoming conventions. Find us at Libcon2017 on the 15 July 2017, and Supanova Adelaide from 17-19 November 2017. We would love to meet you!

 

$2 - A PDF copy of Great Beasts

$4 - Book: convention pick up only

$6 - Book + PDF: convention pick up only 

$7 - Great Beasts & Heart of Millyera: Prelude PDFs

$10 - Book mailed to you + PDF

$15 - Great Beasts & Heart of Millyera: Prelude books mailed to you + PDF

$20 - Great Beasts & Heart of Millyera: Prelude books mailed to you + both PDFs

$25 - Jana will draw a small sketch inside your copy of Great Beasts and it will be mailed to you.

$60 - Along with your copy of Great Beasts you'll receive an original A5 Inked sketch of a Great Beast on thick card stock + PDF.

Our initial goal for this project is to hit $50! This will cover a quarter of our print cost, and validate that this is enough interest for us to go head with printing the comic. - DONE!

Our first stretch goal is $100! If we reach this target, we will be able to print the comic with a matte laminate cover. We really want a matte laminate cover! - ACHIEVED YAY!!

Having smashed through our first stretch goal, if we hit the $350 mark we will unlock a new Sketch reward tier, where you can get your own A5 inked sketch of a magnificent Great Beast. - UNLOCKED!

This lil Beastie could be yours!
This lil Beastie could be yours!

Our final Stretch Goal is $600

If we hit that target then every reward tier will get a Behind the Scenes PDF featuring the original Script by Jess, the different thumbnails and sketch versions the comic went through before arriving at the final product and some of the research animal sketching that Jana did to design the Great Beasts.

Thank you for stopping by. We are so grateful for your support!

Great Beasts is our second printed comic release. We previously released our comic Heart of Millyera, thanks to Kickstarter and our fans! We continue to publish Heart of Millyera online.

Jana has worked in marketing, web & graphic design for over a decade, and has been self-publishing webcomics for over 7 years.

Jess has a background in marketing, and creative writing. She and has been creating comics and writing fiction since she was a teenager. 

Risks and challenges

The book is finished and ready to go to the printer. We've already got quotes from a local reputable printer and all we need now is final numbers. Having fulfilled a Kickstarter before we know all the shipping expenses and what to expect. We couldn't be more ready to rock n roll!
