A beautifully painted 120 page horror/fantasy graphic novel about a once magical world's slow descent in a hellish new reality.

SEASON'S END is a 120 PAGE HORROR/FANTASY hardback book mixing prose with original paintings creating a non-traditional graphic novel unlike anything you've seen before.  

"The world has grown dark and magic has become tainted and dangerous. A young man, Mimdal, is the last living priest that can perform the miracles of old. He and his protector, the soldier Adrielle, are enlisted to find out why the gods have fallen silent. Along with the brutish Dunlari and his savage captive, Grib, the dark wizard Falhern, and Lidderly, the secretive bard, they seek the terrible truth.

The new gods have come."

(Pages 4 and 5.)

WHY WE THINK YOU WILL LOVE IT.

Besides the unique and terrifying art, we believe you'll find this a character driven tale. We created a quick run down through Mimdal's eyes just for our Kickstarter page.

Mimdal, the idealistic protagonist, finds himself in the company of dark and brutal warriors. Dunlari, the swordsman with arms made of iron, is particularly vicious and it isn't long before deadly conflicts arise within the company.

(Pages 26 and 27.)
(Pages 26 and 27.)

Every character, Falhern, Lidderly, Adrielle, Mimdal, Dunlari, and his captive attached by chain, Grib, is driven by an entirely different reason and the real fun will be finding out what pushes these characters onward into the darkest parts of Tenwars.

The book took nearly TWO YEARS to finish and was written by JASON PELL (Creator of Zombie Highway, Woody and the Noble) and with art by BLAKE WHEELER. (Follow the link to see his online gallery.) Everywhere Blake could contribute art he did. From sketches, paintings, the title, and even different borders for each chapter! http://bewheel.deviantart.com/

CAN WE REACH OUR GOAL?

With your help, I'm certain we can reach our goal and even exceed it! All of  the ORIGINAL ART/PAINTINGS are available for the higher rewards. That's right, one of a kind art that will never be replicated can be yours! We also have some great extras planned if we surpass our initial goal and we hope we get to share them all with you.

Bookmarks, prints, and little tweaks in the actual book to improve feel and quality are some of the things we'd love to do. These bonus rewards will be posted as we get closer to our original goal. So PLEASE TELL YOUR FRIENDS about SEASON'S END.

One idea we'd like to add if we go well over our goal, is to include our first collaboration to the back of the book. An 8 page short called  "THE EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN". You can actually read it for free and it hopefully gives you an idea of the originality we try to bring to our work.
