About

Welcome to the new KING SOLOMON'S MINES --a colorful and sexy new 48 page graphic novel by Pablo Marcos & Mark Ellis!
The KING SOLOMON'S MINES graphic novel is a fresh take on H.Rider Haggard's classic tale of adventure and treasure hunting in 19th century Africa.

This adaptation by the team of legendary comics illustrator Pablo (Conan The Barbarian, Tales of the Zombie) Marcos and best-selling author Mark (Outlanders, Doc Savage, Justice Machine) Ellis brings a new and colorful perspective to the Victorian-era yarn.

The KING SOLOMON'S MINES graphic novel by Pablo Marcos and Mark Ellis is just the first of several planned projects (with Ying Ko Graphics) featuring "reimagined" classic adventure heroes. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's CHALLENGER rendered here by the ever-awesome Jeff Slemons, Jules Verne's NEMO by the uber-talented Steven E Gordon and of course, HR Haggard's QUATERMAIN, by the legendary Pablo Marcos.

Are you still hesitant about pledging?

How about this…a Kickstarter first!

If for any reason…you get your paperback or hardcover copy at the end of the project and you don’t like it…you don’t care for the quality of the binding or just don’t like what Mark Ellis and Pablo Marcos created…You let me know. I’ll guarantee that you’ll enjoy the book or your money back!

That’s right! You return your copy and I’ll refund your entire Kickstarter pledge including the percentage that Kickstarter takes off the top. You won’t be out one penny! I’ll even refund what it costs you to send it back!

This offer good for two weeks from the time you receive your copy. If it takes you longer than that to read it and decide, you have other issues besides graphic novels…I can’t help you.

As an extra bonus! Each participant at $10 and above  will also receive a set of the limited edition trading cards! Each participant at $100 and above will receive a set of cards and an uncut sheet (sent rolled)!

Risks and challenges

The project was a labor of love from two highly regarded professionals. Everyone involved has a proven track record with similar projects. The entire project is complete, going through final production prep, and waiting to go to print. With your help, this book will be published.
