About this project

Since the early 1700's, there have been God Children. Young children possessed by demons from the Dark Plane. As their numbers grew, so did their enemies. One group in particular, known as the Brothers of the Kilmarnok, found a way to destroy them. After years of fighting, the two sides struck a truce. Now, 100 years later, the truce has been broken and a war has started that could cover the world in darkness.

Our story follows Gwendolyn, one of the most powerful God Children, who exiled herself at the time of the truce, to live unbothered by constant fighting. Now, with the truce broken, she must reenter the world to prevent all out war.

With the money raised from this page, we intend to tell the first chapter in the Gwendolyn story, titled "Out of Exile". A 120 page graphic novel written by Andrew Sanford and drawn by Joe Cabatit featuring the first five issues in what is planned to be a 15 issue saga. 

Having already finished the first issue, any money raised would go towards completing and printing the first volume.

Risks and challenges

Our biggest obstacle in finishing the project would be our independence. All creators involved are up and coming, so to be honest, we have day jobs. We have bills to pay and schedules to keep like any one else so at the end of the day we're setting aside our free time because we love comic books. We want to contribute to it as a medium, so despite our other obligations, we will make Gwendolyn our priority.
