About this project
A soulless man in search of his identity in the world of man and a selfish man in search of the place where he comes from in the world of magic must find their missing senses of justice and virtue if they are to stop an ancient Druid order from conquering the modern Kingdoms of Camelot.
Update 10: New Reward & Revised Reward Starting today, all $15 pledges (The Chronicle of the Pendragon) will entitle the backer to TWO physical, print copies of Knight's Legacy Book I rather than the currently described one. Also starting today, exclusive to the United States is a new $8 dollar reward that entitles the backer to ONE physical, print copy of Knight's Legacy Book I with free shipping.
KNIGHT'S LEGACY: AWAKENING OF THE PEN DDRAIG BOOK I is the 48-page first issue in a three issue miniseries created and written by MICHAEL SACAL (with PASCAL SALZMANN and ADAM FERENZ), penciled by J. ANDREY PORTILLA, inked by KEVIN LEVERETT, colored by ROBERTO TORRES and lettered by E.T. DOLLMAN. Cover by ART GUTIERREZ.

LAURENCE GREY is the Chief Executive Officer of CARMARTHEN INTERNATIONAL, a global research and development corporation located in WATERFORD CITY, IRELAND. He is a soulless man whose lack of self makes him indifferent to the pain his tyranny causes the people of the European Union.
ETHAN MCBRIDE is the manager of the TOWER MILL ENTERTAINMENT CENTRE, a place where the people of HAWICK, SCOTLAND reinforce their ties. He is a selfish man whose determination to find out where he comes from drives him to only act expecting a reward for his efforts.
The emergence of AVALON - the fabled resting place of king ARTHUR PENDRAGON - propels Ethan on a journey that takes him from the world of man to the world of magic to learn where he comes from, and sends Laurence on a journey from the world of magic to the world of man to find out who he is.
Throughout his journey, Ethan faces the trials of chivalry, a series of tests that teach that virtue overcomes avarice, while during his quest, Laurence encounters the knightly virtues, seven traits that teach that only might applied to a just cause makes right.
Should either fail to embrace their birthright and regain his missing sense of virtue and justice, it would bring about the birth of a DRUID MECCA built atop the ruins of the member states of the EUROPEAN UNION - the modern-day KINGDOMS OF CAMELOT.

Knight's Legacy: Awakening of The Pen Ddraig is a sweeping Arthurian saga that gives previously accepted facts about Arthurian lore a fresh interpretation, which allows it to stand on its own merits alongside other tales inspired by the same source material.
In exchange for your pledges, we'd like to offer you the following rewards.
(pencils and digital inks by J. ANDREY PORTILLA; color by ROBERTO TORRES)
These prints are part of a series prepared for the fundraisers necessary to raise the funds to produce this three-volume series. More prints will be unveiled after we reach our goal in the form of stretch rewards. Otherwise, they are on hold until the two fundraisers to finance the remaining two issues launch.
This print with digital coloring by ROBERTO TORRES is an example of the quality you can expect once these prints are colored. It is not currently a reward. It will become one once we exceed our initial goal.

Risks and challenges
Once this fundraiser reaches its goal, production will begin on the first issue of KNIGHT'S LEGACY: AWAKENING OF THE PEN DDRAIG and all related rewards.
At present, the first draft of the script is 100% complete. In the time between the launch and end of this fundraiser, and the time it will take the artists to pencil, ink, color, and letter the pages, Michael will continue to make additional corrections to the script to ensure its quality.
At present, Andrey, Kevin, and E.T. have finished six of the 48 interior pages from the first issue. Once we reach our goal, Roberto will color them. Simultaneously, Andrey and Kevin will start the remaining 42 pages.
Andrey estimates he can deliver five pages a week, meaning he should have the finished issue in eight weeks following the 14 days Kickstarter needs to collect and process the pledges made to our campaign. Kevin estimates he can deliver five pages a week. Afterward, the colorist and letterer will do their part.
In terms of rewards, all the prints are finished except for the coloring, a task that will start once the campaign ends. Andrey and Art will pencil and color the Siege Perilous commissions parallel to the production of the interior pages. Andrey estimates it will take six hours to finish each commissioned piece. Art estimates it will take three hours to color each piece.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
