About


A witch goes to war... and she needs YOUR help

Back the final volume of Plagued: the Miranda Chronicles to bring this award-winning all ages story to its thrilling end.

Whether you're a die-hard fan, or a new reader, there’s something for you in our selection of awesome rewards.

About Plagued: The Miranda Chronicles

Plagued is like Harry Potter meets Star Wars Rebels. It’s a story of magic and witchcraft in a futuristic setting – mashing sci-fi, fantasy, action and comedy all in one.

And just like those two stories, Plagued has a wide range of fans, from kids, young adults to adults.

The story follows a rebel witch, a turncoat witch hunter and his talking dog, who formed an oddball alliance to cure a plague and fight an evil corporation that controls the world.

Volume 3 sees the rebel trio form an uneasy bond with a dangerous witch coven to fight Salem – the greatest witch hunter. He has a deadly plan to destroy witches and those who oppose him for good.

At the heart of Plagued is a story about friendship and doing the right thing when facing adversity.

Who loves Plagued: The Miranda Chronicles?

 Firstly, the readers do: 

"We thought Plagued was a great comic because it was funny and it was different compared to other comics we've read. We really liked the character of Dex the dog!" 

- Caleb & Fraser, age 10

“I cant wait for Volume 3 of Plagued because I feel like I need to see where this story is going. Gary and Tanya have a big fan in me and I am glad this was my first comic book.”

- Ruby, age 11

“As a father of 3 girls who is way more Geeky than he should be, I had been struggling to find a comic I could enjoy with my eldest. I really enjoyed these books first time round but reading through again with Ruby has added so much.”

- Kevin, Ruby’s dad

“The storyline is easy to understand and follow but fun and addicting. It is the best series I've ever read. I would recommend this to everybody!”

- Lewis, age 10

"If you like something unique and with plenty of potential then you can't go wrong here."

- Chris on Amazon

The story has a bit of everything I like, mystery, impending doom, bold heroes doing the right thing all in a sci-fi fantasy setting. Great stuff!

- Phil on Amazon

Stretch Goals

Why Kickstarter?

With Kickstarter, the way comics are made has changed. It is no longer about simply making a book and selling it – it’s about building a community and giving readers more bang for their buck in the form of rewards.

And that’s what we want to do. By using Kickstarter, we can do more for our fans, take the series to the next level and enjoy the safety of covering costs of production before shipping.

Your money will be the bloodline of production - funding the creation and printing of the comic.

The book will launch at Edinburgh Book Festival in August 2019. All copies will be shipped to backers, distributed to stores nationwide and be readily available for signings and other festivals and conventions.

Meet our creative team

Tanya Roberts – Artist

An artist from Edinburgh who, after beginning her career in animation, made a bold start in comics as the artist on Star Wars: Clone Wars. Since then she has worked on Boom!’s Toy Story comic and How to Train Your Dragon by Titan Books.

Gary Chudleigh – Writer

Gary Chudleigh is an award-winning writer with eight years’ experience creating and producing fictional content for graphic novels and animation. He has worked with several publishers, including BHP Comics, D.C Thomson and Comichaus.

We're mostly spending the money on Printing and making rewards, This only makes up 30% of the projects total, with 70% of costs of swallowed up by the creators and publisher.

Risks and challenges

This is BHPs first directly run Kickstarter, but we've collaborated with Gary (the creator) on Vol 2s KS and with 404 Ink on our We Shall Fight Until We Win project. 

The book production is already underway, and the book will be complety on time or ahead of schedule to be released and launched at Edinburgh Int Book Fest later in 2019. 

Thanks for supporting our project.

Risks and challenges

There are little risks in this project. BHP Comics have years of experience and have published books with huge comic names such as John Wagner, Alan Grant and Frank Quitely.

Production is already underway. Challenges would be events that could cause a delay in production, such as family emergencies. But, if this was to happen in any shape or form, all backers will be immediately notified. We have, however, established a very generous lead time to allow tolerance for any issues in the production of the book.

If a real plague comes and gets us all, well, there’s nothing we can do there!
