What is the Covenant Series? 

The Covenant series is a hi-concept cross-genre graphic novel series chronicling the exploits of some of the most notable characters in history and mythology "dealing with the devil". The storyline features Lucifer, recounting his exploits over the course of human history, interacting with characters like Alexander the Great, Julius Caesar, Napoleon Bonaparte, and many others, in his attempt to collect the power of the human soul and exact his revenge against the forces of Heaven.

What are the funds for?

Simply put; we want to bring the Covenant seriesto life. So we're attempting to raise $1500 to cover the costs preparing the first 6 issues and get them out to our backers.

We want to run future funding campaigns to continue the series and expand it to wider audience. This includes the illustration and design, marketing, promotion, printing and distribution.

But even more important than the money is the opportunity to promote the series through Kickstarter. Like many creative artists we're hoping to exclusively offer the series through Kickstarter in future. We hope that people will love this series and future projects we have lined up. 

The rewards for helping us in the development of the series will include copies of the issues and pages of original artwork, original script and narrative, sequential story line artwork, layout and design specs and sketches, our research and notes...plus some other cool stuff.   

We are looking to creating a really cool series and will even be looking for input from our audience as it moves along. 

What if you guys get more than $1500?

Well, we'll use the extra money toward making more issues and bringing them to you. Simple as that. We'll also take suggestions; just send us a message of what you think we could do related to the series. We want to be able to offer printed copies of the series as well, so additional funds could be put toward that end. 


It would also be great to do things like produce merchandise to give away to our donors/sponsors, maybe even create a website, cause that seems really important nowadays, but we're focused on this phase of the process right now.


Can backers really become characters in the series?

Yep, we think it's a great idea and hope you do too. That's why we offer it as a reward with degrees of exposure from cameos to full fledged significant roles. We really want lots of participation from our readership. There will be a process where we develop the character with you. Check out the associated rewards. 

We are also planning a lot of interactive features for fans of the series down the road, you know, when we have them...the fans we mean, heh.  

Also we want to offer potential donors a "make your own reward". Maybe you want to pledge a certain amount and are interested in some combination of prizes; or maybe you've thought of a prize we haven't based on some you've seen here or on other campaign drives. Let us know, just message us and we'll work something out.
