Kore - The All Seeing

Kore /ˈkôrē/- The maiden, Persephone, daughter of Demeter.

The comic jumps from consciousness to consciousness in a journey to become The All Seeing Kore, Queen of the Underworld.

It is a fully completed comic, all that needs to be done is the printing, that's why I'm opening up this Kickstarter to raise funds to produce a small print run. I'm using this platform as a means to collect preorders so I can judge what needs to be spent without over-estimating.

The Book

Each book will be at 7"x11" size, 74 pages, B&W. The book will be encased in a slip cover, will be individually watermarked and will also include a hand printed bookplate. In addition, an original soundtrack composed by Lizzie Fitzpatrick will be redeemable via a code printed in the book, created to be listened to while reading.

I am aiming for a print run of 50 priced at £10 each, so including KS and Amazon fees, I'm shooting for a goal of £350 as this will at the very least, pay for a print run of 50 books plus P&P and rewards.

If more than 50 people want the book, then I'll print however many is needed. Any extra funds that may be raised will go towards printing a number of extra books depending on how the campaign goes. Ideally I'd like to be able to have plenty of extra copies so that people who miss out on the kickstarter can purchase a copy at a future event or online.

Limited Edition Hardback

I would like to print 10 limited edition, numbered hardback copies of the book. These books will be signed, watermarked and numbered and will include a special, hand printed bookplate, an individual, original sketch and a CD of original music composed by Lizzie Fitzpatrick, created to be played while reading the comic. They are priced at £30 each and will not be reprinted.

The aim is to have the project done and dusted for the end of October this year, in time for London MCM Expo. Folks who are attending the convention can pop along to my table in the comic village and pick up their copy + physical rewards, or if you add the requested shipping fee to the relevant reward amount, I'll pop it in the post for you.

Rewards

It wouldn't be a Kickstarter without some cool rewards! Aside from the comic itself, I also have on offer some super special bonus swag up for grabs!

Update! I've made an unfortunate error in my reward descriptions 2,6 &7. I have listed in the reward description that shipping outside of the UK is £3, this was a mistake, and the shipping cost is £5! As at least one of each reward has been claimed, I can't edit it! I've contacted Kickstarter to ask them to change it, but until I get a resolution, please note the correct amount is £5, not £3! I'm so sorry for any confusion, my bad! :/

Digital Edition - £5

A digital copy of the book, plus two desktop images.

The book - £10

Just the book itself is £10.

Stretch Goals!

Thanks so much to everyone who has pledged so far! I've surpassed my goal WAY more than I ever thought possible!

I've got some stretch goal rewards lined up for a couple of possible milestones! Lets see if we can make it! For now, lets see if we can make it to £2,500!

Stretch goal #1: £2,500

Each person who has pledged £10 and above will also recieve a handmade bookmark with an eyeball charm! Here is a little prototype I made up!

Risks and challenges

As this comic is fully completed, there is no risk in the production of any of the content.

However, as with anything being produced in printed form, there are always risks regarding printing, shipping etc, though I hope that at worst, a small delay is possible if any unforseen events occur, such as printing errors or damage.

Another possible challenge might possibly be if I exceed my expectation in orders and have trouble creating all the handmade features to the book. I plan to be prepared for this my having as much material as I can ready as soon as I can get an idea of demand and cover all bases beforehand.
