WITCHES TRINE is the centuries-spanning story of three immortal witches: Olivia, the Scholar; Eva, the Healer; and Victoria, the Warrior. Their devotion to the Dark Arts is only surpassed by their loyalty to each other. When they find themselves in the middle of a sinister plot to raise the Antichrist, they will have to use all their Craft and unique abilities to save themselves and the world…and not even death can stand in their way!
Witches Trine: Rebirth collects the first four chapters of the witches' story on 120 pages in a hardcover book, printed in full color. It is the first graphic novel from Movierockets Entertainment, created by Movierockets' own Kris Lippert, with artwork provided by Hugh Vogt and John Howard, cover by Jim Taylor.
This project is a labor of love that we have nurtured for the past two years. Writing the story, putting together the artistic team, and investing time and money to make it a reality.
Why Kickstarter? We are a small company with limited resources but huge passion. Publishing this book is not about making money but sharing that passion with like-minded people. Kickstarter not only gives us the chance to publish the book on our terms, but also to reach a large number of potential readers and reward their trust with exclusive items.
The book is now ready for printing, all we need is your support to make it happen!

And a few pages from the finished book:
Olivia dedicated the last 130 years of her life to finding an arcane book that contains a resurrection spell—one capable of bringing back from the dead her fellow witch Eva, who was burned at the stake by an angry mob in 19th century England. It is a fate Olivia would have shared, if not for the third member of their trine, Victoria, who saved her from a most gruesome demise.
When Olivia finally finds the book in modern day Los Angeles, it turns out she is not the only one looking—and the consequences might be deadlier than she bargained for. And Victoria, who slums around with her thuggish boyfriend Sean, might not be there to help her this time.

Risks and challenges
All creative work is done, the book is ready to be printed, and will be shipped by professional fulfillment company 'Make That Thing' to make sure everything is handled smoothly and in a timely manner.
Printing will be handled overseas, so that will add a little more time to the production of the book, and of course there's always the danger of past-due fulfillment, printing disasters, and other acts of God.
Rest assured, we and our fulfillment partners will do our very best to get the book to you on time. We appreciate every bit of support we receive, and are grateful to you all.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
