About this project

"Writing...it's supposed to be easy! So what the hell's wrong with me..."

"Untitled" is the journey of a struggling writer and his foul-mouthed alcoholic muse to find new inspiration. Along the way he encounters the ghosts of stories past and faces an outright revolt from his long suffering artist. There are 7 artists working on this project, and we're Kickstartering to cover not only print costs BUT THE ARTIST FEES AS WELL! That's right, PAYING ARTISTS! Amazing. And we have a publisher, Geeky Comics, lined up, ready to release this graphic novel.

"Untitled" boasts an international group of talented comic artists, each bringing a unique style and approach to the story, which sees Ryan Sharpwood, a down on his luck writer, take an unexpected adventure with his drunken muse.  Each leg of his journey passes through a different genre - his previous attempts to find his voice as a writer - and each genre is portrayed by a different artist, such as Gary Kelly's inktastic Knights & Dragons.

Uniting each section is the stunning graphite work of Janine van Moosel, the lady who brought everyone together!  Included in this project are seasoned pros and new talent, such as high school student David Sadler, who did his work placement experience on "Untitled".

With a stunning array of talent and 80+ pages to tackled, we are now Kickstarting both print costs for the first run AND artist's fees.  We're paying our artists a page rate for their time and talent!  Huzzah!  With each reward you are directly supporting the hard work and dedication of talented indie comics creators.  And getting a fabulous graphic novel!

Janine Van Moosel (City of Lost Souls, The Rot)

 Kathryn Briggs (Story(Cycle), Anatomy of the (Broken) Heart)

 Helmut Jacoby Racho (Freelance artist)

 Dani Smith (Black Dog and Rebel Rose)

 Gary Kelly (NeverEnding, GK Illustration)

 Nick Wright (Finkymarv Illustration)

 And once we're fully funded, Geeky Comics takes it from there.  They will be our distributor and publisher, bringing "Untitled" to comic cons and comic stores throughout the UK.  So, you'll not only get a fantastic, original 80+ page graphic novel, support the artists who are creating this book, but you'll be proud "I got it first!" owner of a book on the make.

 For rewards we are offering "Untitled" in both digital and paperback format.  We are also offering a selection of fine art prints of the promotional pieces each of our artists have created - check out Update #2 to see what's on offer!  In addition, you can have an original page from the comic, or even commission Kathryn or Janine to create something just for you! 

But wait there's more!  Share our Kickstarter, send a screenshot to our Facebook page and get a free digital copy of "The Rot", a zombie short by Mike & Janine. 

Thanks for your support!
