A shadowy child's bedroom.
Suddenly, a loud noise shatters the silence, ignored over a crackling baby monitor.
Have no fear, a precocious little heroine is ready and eager to leap into action and defend her family!
This is the premise behind Lil' Ninja, an all-ages comic book created by Greg Woronchak (with an assist from my wonderful wife). LILY (aka Lil' Ninja) is a loveable toddler with very special skills; with the assistance of her favourite plush hippo OSCAR, she faces adventure and danger with a giggle.
Young readers will tremendously enjoy Lily's adventures by following the bright and colourful images and minimal text. Older readers will be enthralled by an exciting story featuring a selfless and adorable heroine.
LILY was inspired by the antics of our daughter, filtered through a kooky comic book lens. There aren't enough quality comics out there directed toward young readers (as well as the young at heart) and Lil' Ninja certainly fits the bill!
The stars of this exciting comic are the brilliant art and spectacular colors: they make LILY and her gang really come to life. They were produced in part by the dynamic pencils of Ash Jackson and the vibrant colors of the wonderfully talented Dustin Evans (with an assist by Greg Woronchak).
This Kickstarter project would secure funds to complete our first issue, which is 40 pages (standard comic book size), in full colour. The pages have already been drawn and inked, what remains is lettering and colors to finish bringing Lily to life. Any extra funds would be directed toward Lily's second issue (which is already plotted).
We hope that the quality of this concept is plain to see, and that our passion is contagious. Any help to achieve our goal would be very much appreciated!

Risks and challenges
The risks are minimal; our colorist is lined up and committed to completing the book. If he wasn't able to do so, a replacement would be found.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
