Gummy Wizard Saga is a humorous fantasy story that follows the adventures of Poemi, a schoolgirl with an intense dislike for magic. After accidentally freeing a young wizard named Nim from his centuries-long imprisonment, she is sucked into a quest to help him restore his magic powers. If it were up to her, she'd just dump him at the nearest pound for magical creatures instead... The sooner things go back to normal, the better!
Gummy Wizard Saga started out as a webcomic and can be read here!
Reviews From Previous Readers
Our story is set in Scola, an alternate version of Scotland, where magic has been steadily returning to the country after a terrible catastrophe left magical sources depleted. Temporarily banned, magical practice was only legalised again fifty years ago, and Scola is still adjusting to this shift.
I spent a lot of time scouring the coastal Scottish town where I live for references and inspiration with my camera, so the setting and backgrounds are firmly based on local architecture and visuals. I hope you enjoy them!
Graphic Novel (GUMMY WORM Reward Tier)
Gummy Wizard Saga: Volume 1 includes the first two chapters of the story, introducing the world and characters, and rounding off their first adventure together. It will be printed in US Standard Comic Page Size, in full colour, and is 68 pages long (including covers).
Graphic Novel + Print Set (GUMMY BEAR Reward Tier)
If you back at this reward tier, you will receive the graphic novel and a set of three A5 art prints! I have released the artwork for two of the prints below. The third will be revealed during this campaign and will feature our annoying little wizard Nim.
Gummy Wizard Saga has been printed once before, though not via Kickstarter. I funded the first print run myself and sold at local conventions. The comic did great, completely selling out at Glasgow Comic Con! I am now choosing to go through Kickstarter to bring Gummy Wizard Saga to a larger and international audience. Whether you're a new reader or a longtime fan of the webcomic who missed out on the conventions, now's your chance to snag yourself a copy of your own.
Thank you so much for putting your trust in me and enjoying my silly story about a grumpy girl and her mischievous pet wizard!
Risks and challenges
Gummy Wizard Saga has been printed before, and I am working with the same reputable comic printer as last time. Because of this, I don't anticipate any major problems. A potential risk might be bad weather causing delivery delays, as we had a surprise blizzard around this time last year. I'll be sure to update backers with any potential delays or issues that may arise.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
