This Kickstarter will be for launching the first issue of Ronin of the Mushari Kingdom, an epic adventure inspired by the charmingly nostalgic world of the early Super Mario Bros. franchise. The story takes place in a Samurai inspired fantasy world. Toki, a young mushroom farmer, has rebelled against the evil tyranny of General Bozuru, and must do the impossible in order to save his father and the kingdom. ROTMK is a fantastical tale with dynamic characters. The deep storyline brings exciting twists and turns, while giving familiar nods to it's inspirer. The original concept art (found here: http://jpzilla.deviantart.com/art/Ronin-of-the-Mushroom-Kingdom-212254323 ) has won a Daily Deviation on Deviantart, and has been shared throughout many avenues including the gaming, comic, and art communities.
ROTMK is essentially an origin story, explaining the world and legends that reside in it. This issue contains 16 colorful pages of sequential art.

WHERE WE'RE AT:
The entire world and its full story has been meticulously crafted in great detail by ROTMK co-writer, J. Hough, and myself. For the first issue, the script is done and the art is about 75% complete, which means that you won't have to wait long to receive your rewards!
Our goal in the future is to create an entire first series of ROTMK. The series will be in the form of 3 acts, with each act containing 3 issues. Our ultimate goal is to compile all 9 issues into a full graphic novel!
Outside of ROTMK, we are working passionately on other projects that we hope will continue to entertain the interests of our fans.
It's been a dream of ours to pursue our passion for art and storytelling. We are extremely grateful for your time and support, and hope that this truly kickstarts out journey to making our dreams a reality! THANK YOU!
