Riven Seal : Volume 1

$13,603

241

Riven Seal is a historical fantasy set in a world where magic has always existed and onset of demon summoning has brought upon major changes throughout the world. While the story interweaves several plot lines and a diverse cast, a young man named Janus lies at the center of web of fate that connects them all. His encounter with a unbound demon is the catalyst for a series of intrigues and magic that has not been seen in centuries.

                                             You can read the comic online here!

We are raising money to print volume 1 of Riven Seal. It’s a 136-page, perfect bound, softcover book. It will contain the first three chapters and 20 pages of additional content. For those of you who have bought chapter 1 in the past, we have been revamping the first 15 pages;  the events will stay the same, but we are adding subtle world building details. The new pages will be in color!  

Furthermore, we are really excited to announce a 5-page bonus story by Lora Innes. Check out her webcomic, "The Dreamer"

The initial goal was set to cover printing, shipping , the purchase of ISBN numbers, rewards, and Kickstarter and Amazon fees. We have a series of unique rewards and stretch goals if we raise more than that. There is more information on them below.

Check out our profile to pick up the teas before the Kickstarter ends! 3oz bags and 5oz tins come with custom labels of the characters.

Here's the icing on the cake if we are able to surpass our initial goal!

                           

Riven Seal is a proud member of Reverie, a long-format, fantasy comic collective. We would like to thank all the members for their continued support. In particular, we would like to highlight the artist/collaborators who contributed art for the mini prints. 

Spindrift - Elsa Kroese  Wilde Life - Pascalle Lepas Snow by Night - Naty Baaklini Valkyrie Squadron - Jules Rivera Floral Frolic - Amanda Coronado Final Arcanum - Stephanie Stober

If you like Riven Seal, we are sure you will enjoy their stories as well.

We are very excited to team up with Print Ninja to publish our first volume. They have been responsible for publishing several projects we’ve previously backed. We have heard a great deal of accolades concerning their quality and customer services from fellow webcomic creators.

Risks and challenges

While this will be our first Kickstarter, we have access to several experienced webcomic artists who have been through hoops already. We’ve been told that printing and shipping delays can and will happen. We will be working closely with our printer, Print Ninja, to meet our deadlines. So far as we know, they’ve produced quality books in an expedient manner. As for shipping, we’ve already made preparations to bring on help to get the books and rewards out as soon as possible.

Thank you for your trust and support!
