Further Vol. 1 - A graphic novel by Holly Adkins

$3,098

BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER (except without any characters you’d feel confident in trusting with supernatural disaster.)

Further is a supernatural dramedy following two teenagers - Manfred Jones and Nicholas "Worth" Worthing- uncovering the bizarre and disturbing secrets of their town Furthershire, even though it's the last thing they want to do.

Manfred is a musical prodigy dealing with the loss of her dad and the aftermath of the self- destructive decisions she made directly afterwards.

Worth, on the other hand is a spoiled rich kid struggling with the fallout of both his parents deteriorating marriage and the poisonous family legacy that has left his family with multiple issues and himself with an ancient curse.

With the help of their much more competent friends, Manfred and Worth work together to stop the cycle of murder in their town and bring balance back into Furthershire and their lives.

And that's that! Before we show you a few sample pages from Further Vol.1 check out the awesome $100 tier!

EXTRAS!

Go ahead and take a sneak peek at some of the incredible back matter that Holly has put together to make sure this is the raddest graphic novel in town. Each tier with a digital or physical edition includes over 10 pages of back matter!

Why Kickstarter?

Holly has been hard at work on Further since 2014 and as it stands, the first volume is fully complete! Exclusively for this Kickstarter the pages have been completely recolored and transformed into something none of the current readers have seen yet! With the help of Kickstarter the aim is to grow the audience of Further while also giving current fans an avenue to get exclusive items to this Kickstarter and even some that will never be printed again past their short availability here.

WHAT'S NEXT AFTER FURTHER VOL. 1?

Holly has nearly completed Volume 2 already! Don't believe me? Well check out two pages from Volume 2 coming early 2019! Be sure to back now so you'll be caught up before then!

With this Kickstarter your backing is been solely spent on the items you seen in the tiers. This campaign covers the inital print run and merchandise. Anything over the amount will help Holly continue making Further vol. 2 and beyond!

Shipping

Based on past experience and our research with some of Kickstarters top campaign creators, we will be charging shipping after the Kickstarter concludes based on what the exact cost will be to ship your tier. Each tier is unique as is each backers needs so once we get with you after the campaign ends, we'll give you a short survey and funds will be collected by our pledge manager. This process is being done via the well-known platform, BackerKit! This platform also enables the backer to easily attach any add-ons they might need and provides an easy communication avenue.

If you have questions about this or if you would like us to provide you with an estimated cost of shipping to your address based on live shipping rates, don't hesitate to contact us via the message button above!

Risks and challenges

The graphic novel before starting this campaign is in completion. Holly has recolored all pages and made other minor changes to ensure that we're completely ready to print as soon as the campaign ends in success. As it stands we've already printed a proof that is en route to the studio.

After that, we've had 4 successful Kickstarters already between the three of us and we consider ourselves successful in printing, packaging, and shipping out the rewards in a timely manner.
