Girrion Book 1 The Chrysalis & the Stone Issue #2

Story:  

GIRRION is a sweeping sci-fi fantasy story of a hero's journey in a distant world in a distant time. The saga is told through the eyes of Jarra, a poor factory worker who dreams of escaping his world of endless toil. His wish comes true, though not in a way he would have ever wanted, when his city is attacked by a dark entity called the Halodron. He escapes the conflict, but only to be thrust into a war of other-worldy magic and weaponry.  

 Amidst the destruction, history begins to unravel as soldiers of a forgotten war resurface and the secrets of a mysterious technology known as Girrion come to light as its scattered remains suddenly start to “reawaken”. With little time and resources, the hero must help save his crumbling empire from its destructive past.

Age Range: (PG-13 with a PG version)

There's no sex or bad language. Girrion is primarily about a war so there is cartoon violence similar to the level of Star Wars, but more of it. Issues with more violence come up in the second act of the story and I do plan to have a "toned down" edited version for younger readers. This will take some additional effort but I think its worth to open up to kids as well. Photoshop will make it happen! Issues 1 and 2 are both PG.

GIRRION Book 1 The Chrysalis and the Stone is approximately 150 pages long, and is the first installment of a three-book series. Currently Issue 1 is complete (pages 1 - 25), and Issue 2 (pages 26 - 50) is now in production. This kickstarter is for Issue 2. Should Kickstarter work out, more will be done for each issue or possibly all of Book 1.

Why does Girrion need fundraising?

Any budget from crowdfunding will go partly towards production in terms of artwork, and secondly printing and distributing the comics. Any additional funds beyond the $6,000 goal will go towards hiring more artists to further help with the artwork and get Issue 2 out faster, as well as subsequent issues.

Without kickstarter, the books can still be made but will take much longer to complete and there will be less of a community around the book. Yes, there still is a strong following on social media started but Kickstarter literally will get the book in peoples’ hands as well as speed up production. Anyone who contributes, particularly in this initial stage, will indeed be helping Girrion succeed as a whole.

Book Format:

Each issue is 24 pages in length. 6" x 9" Soft cover glossy finish.

Risks and challenges

Being that I've already laid down the groundwork for this project - I don't see a lot of major challenges in terms of getting Issue 2 complete. Creating Issue #1 was where the major learning curve was, and now that that is complete I have my exact MO and know exactly what to do from getting the artwork done, to dealing with printers and getting things mailed. Its really just simply a matter of me sitting down and finishing the pages.The only potential problems would be if I get just barely enough funding I may have to juggle in more work for my day job (which is also drawing), thus delaying the book delivery by a few weeks to a month.
