An evil thought only to be fairy tale has returned!  A young girl, Arana and several others must find a way to stop this nightmare of creatures before the First World falls into ultimate darkness. 

The First World is a sword and sorcery adventure unlike any you have ever seen!  What makes it so different?  There are no chosen ones, no destined savior.  There isn't one special thing to accomplish and then BOOM, the world is saved! 

Defeated long ago by the Noble 5, the NOCTEM has returned. Now, those within the bloodline of the Noble 5 must try and defeat the same evil their ancestors did, long ago.  With fantastic realms and mythical beasts, the First World has everything you would expect from a Fantasy epic but not the usual "Chosen one" the genre falls into too often. 

With the funds from this Kickstarter, we hope to begin the journey of Arana and her band of warriors.  We will be able to print up issues 1&2 of our 6 issue fantasy epic.  24 full color pages of awesomeness! We will be able to make prints, reserve tables at a few shows and get our dream out there.  Once on the scene, we can have the opportunity to look for national distribution, digital distribution and further our careers as storytellers. Without this Kickstarter, the book won't see the light of day.

First world is brought to you by the same art team that brought the fantasy epic, Kantara to life! Teaming up for their third book together (the other being the soon to come Realm of the Underworld) are on pencils-Chris Campana, Inker-Scott Shriver and colorist-Ron Wybraniec.

Risks and challenges

Obviously art takes time. Managing to create a book worthy of being printed takes a lot of determination, talent and mostly time! Since this isn't the only job any of us have (yet!) there are times when life gets in the way a little. We have families, children and other responsibilities like all of you. We have plans for an awesome run for the First World. A substantial amount of the rewards are already done or in progress, except obviously for the custom pieces. Issue 1 is nearing completion and will be released, if we are successful the first Wednesday in April! Chris has the story planned out for a 6 issue arc and then a TPB with a boatload of extra, cool stuff. We will always be honest with our fans and should anything come up that could delay any part of the process, we will communicate with all of you and make sure we do all we can to do what we said we would.
