Children of Eldair Book 1
Children of Eldair Book 1

A comic about a sorcerer who saves a girl from flesh-eating demons. After trying to use magic to find her friends, he’s trapped in a vision of the past--one that will help him save the world and the girl he loves.

 

Embera should be dead when Koe finds her unconscious and wounded in the wildlands of Eldair. Who she is and how she got there remains a mystery even after she finally awakens from a strange enchanted sleep. Koe can only guess what the quiet, scared, and damaged Embera has been through until he is suddenly pulled into a vision that takes him on an adventure across time and worlds. 

 

Turns out Embera isn't from Eldair at all. Nearly a year ago she was about to graduate high school when she and her two friends, Iva and Indri, were stolen from their world by a fairy. On their journey to find a way back home, they face many dangers, including unknown magic, an oncoming war between races, and the threat of flesh-eating demons. Koe must now witness these events for himself so when the time comes, he can stop a future of death and save his world--and the girl he has come to love.

Children of Eldair is an ongoing webcomic that has been updating since 2012 and can be read online at www.eldair.com.

Risks and challenges

This is my first kickstarter, but I feel confident that I can get everyone their rewards in a timely manner. All of the art is finished and only requires formatting for print. I have done several book printing projects, so I know my way around the print world, including how to design, format, and work with printers to create a great product.

In the case of delays I will be sure to keep all backers updated via Kickstarter as well as the Eldair website and social media.
