Drachein is written by Daniel Curtin with art by Allen Watson (Shrptooth), and brought to life with colors by Tamas Vargas. The first issue also features variant covers from Wesley St. Claire (Fu Jitsu, Teen Titans Annual) and Giovanni Valetta (John Wick, Pathfinder Tarzan, X-men Blue), and Hugo Petrus (Nick Fury,Batman)
Drachein is an American fantasy epic set in a vast continent bearing the same name: Drachein. Drachein is a nation made of many tribes, collectively known as The Drachein. The Drachein are divided by their endless differences, yet united in their stand against the mighty Second Empire. With their enemy initially vanquished, the Drachein fell when their internal differences grew too tall. The malevolent survivors of the Second Empire regained strength in the cracks of the divided nation of Drachein and with a final blow destroyed the remnants of this once mighty people. Hence forth, the nation of Drachein was nothing more than ruins and empty memories.
Aiyana, just a young girl, faces the aftermath of this conflict, not knowing that she is the last of the Drachein royal bloodline. Living as the protégé to Kanna, Aiyana must overcome her obstacles and reunite the Drachein once more.

Variant Cover Art
All the money made from this Kickstarter campaign will go directly to paying all the artists involved for their invaluable contributions, printing the comics, and marketing the material. These funds will also cover all things on the backend including shipping of all items as well as commissions, along with the ordering and printing of merchandise. If the stretch goals are met we will be bringing some incredibly exciting new things to you as well. See below.
Risks and challenges
The first half of Issue #1 is already finished so that is a big time saver. The major risk this project faces is timing. Despite printing the comics in the US, it is still convention season, so we could be delayed by travel to/from events. Even though Shrptooth has become a real pro at completing commissions and getting them to clients on time, getting this high of a number of commissions all done and sent out on time will still prove to be a fun challenge.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
