This Kickstarter is to fund a small print run of my new book, Penultimate Quest book 1. My plan is to distribute it on my website, larsbrown.com, and conventions that I'm able to attend. It is 90 pages long.

I started Penultimate Quest in January 2012, at the time I conceived it as a jokey, stand alone mini comic. That mini comic turned out quite well, but later in the year I started to kick around the idea of making it into a full length story. The idea of a never-ending dungeon was tantalizing and it carried with it a special challenge of explaining its origin and placing it all in a satisfying story. With my notes in place I began work on the full story in December and now have the first part complete.

I have already planned out the remaining two parts and will start working on them immediately. My hope is to have the next volume done either in the Summer or Fall and complete the next volume by Spring 2014. I also plan on putting out each part as a stand alone book, especially to backers so that they have complete sets.

Everything I make I post for free on my website larsbrown.com.

If you would like to read the comic it is all available online at my website, larsbrown.com. Thank you.

A few notes on rewards.

For all of the tiers the signatures or drawings will go on the title page which includes a fierce, level 1 rat. The margins in the image are not correct however, the title is centered the rat is not cut off.

For the $25.00 and up tiers I will need you to send me a photo of you that I can use as reference to draw from. Also let me know your class (I can work from rogue, wizard or warrior, if you go more specific I'll need some reference) and if you want to specify a weapon or such let me know. If you only send a picture the other details will be random. Please email me as soon as possible at larsonus@gmail.com. Thank you!

For the $60.00 level it will absolutely be in order of when you funded the project. I will message you on Kickstarter and only about page selection. All pages are on bristol and are drawn with green pencil. All pages have inked word balloons with only green penciled words if that. Not all blacks are filled in, I will work on filling in character blacks but backgrounds may remain as is. Some images may not fully match the printed books because I edited it. If there is a large difference I will try to let you know. Here is a page with the pages listed with numbers, I will try to keep this as up to date so it may be necessary to give me 2 or 3 selections.

Every book will be signed.

Risks and challenges

I am doing a small run and have a few options for printing depending on the success of the Kickstarter. However even reaching my small goal will more than allow me to get a book to everybody who funds the print run.
