About

Kate kills monsters. It’s what she does. It’s what she’s good at. It’s what they pay her for.

And then one day, deep in a cave, Kate finds something different. Something she’s never seen before. Something that will change how she feels about being a dragonslayer.

This is a story about a girl, a ghost, and a dragon, and their unexpected friendship. It's a story about monsters, and evil, and how you figure out who the bad guys are. It's a story about how one young woman finally learns that being a monster isn't about what you are, it's about what you do

 

Dragonslayer is a YA fantasy graphic novel. The whole story is 6 chapters in length, each of which we plan to release as a stand-alone, 22 page issue. Chapter 1 is already complete and ready to ship! We're eager to get to work on Chapter 2, just as soon as this campaign reaches its goal.

Risks and challenges

We have a great team assembled for this project, and we are all really excited to get to work on the next chapter. We've already done one chapter, so we know the production challenges that we're facing and that we can overcome them.

The biggest risk right now is that even if we manage to fund Chapters 1 & 2, we might not be so lucky with Chapters 3 & 4. We want to see this project through to the end, but funding will be a challenge every step of the way. We are committed and ready to do our part. Now we just need your help to make this book a reality.

    You said I could be IN the comic?

    Get drawn into the comic as an extra! We will use your face or the face of someone you know as a person in the background of a crowd scene or someone Kate passes on the street in Chapter 2! You will need to provide a photo for Lee to use for reference.

    Of course, you will also get a print copy of Chapters 1 & 2 so you can see your lovely face as rendered by Lee.

    Can I be an Executive Producer?

    You can! An executive producer is like any other member of the creative team, in that they get a big shiny credit on the inside cover, but even better because they don’t have to do any work.

    Of course you’ll get a print copy of Chapters 1 & 2 so you can see the work you’ve made possible, as well as your name emblazoned on the credits page. Perfect for showing off to your jealous friends!

    I WANT TO HAVE A MAJOR ROLE IN CH. 2!

    We’ll use your face or the face of someone you know (what a great gift idea!) as the basis for a character that appears in chapter 2! This character interacts with Kate for a whole scene in the middle of the chapter. For writing reasons, the character has to be female (but the owner of the original face may be any gender). You will need to provide a photo for Lee to use for reference.

    And of course, print copies of Chapters 1&2, and your name on the Special Kickstarter Thank You page.
