About this project
FIRST OFF, THANK YOU
ALL FOR STOPPING IN AND CHECKING US OUT!
Mad World is not a world far from your own.
Andy is living a fairly normal life, that is until her adoptive parents find an old box stuffed away in the attic filled with lost treasures of her parents obscure past. A watch is pulled from the box, unlike any Andy has seen before, and it is upon twiddling the dials on the unusual artefact that she paints herself a target of insidious forces from another world.
Andy is swept away into Mad World, an alternate plane of existence filled with curious creatures, comical characters... and pirates. Accompanied by her spirit guide and part time captor Corvus, a six foot crow with esoteric magical abilities, Andy must find her purpose in a Mad World. Why does a shadowy evil force want her dead? What did her parents have to do with this strange place? And how can she escape their mysterious fate?
Why we need you!
Mad World started as a child's novel, which Patch Silver wrote for his son. It wasn’t until Patch met with Ryk Brink that the two of them concocted the idea to turn into an awesome, graphic novel series, constructed their own fantasy universe.
After gaining a fairly large following on social media networks, we knew that we had to get it down and out there for everyone to enjoy, but hobgoblins stole our gold. So we need your help! We want you to have this awesome adventure in your hands to read and enjoy. It isn’t about fame, money, or being able to afford brand label nacho cheese chips. It is about being able to make an ongoing series that can and will bring out feelings of child like wonder and adventure and still remain relevant for young and old.
We have it all, a beautiful, intriguing, engrossing, enthralling story, a powerful, and passionate script. A skilled artist/colourist/letterer and a quirky, obsessive English writer with nothing to lose and a butt load of spunk! … A butt load!
All we need now is your contribution to make this fantasy… err yeah well it’s not reality, it’s still fantasy, but to make it into a graphic novel so we can pass on this love of stories and fun to you.
What is cooler than Rewards? COOLER STRETCHED GOAL REWARDS!
We are aiming for 5,000 buck-O-roos to finish our 65 page part one issue. That includes all production costs, rewards and prints. BUT! We would also like to see how far we can take this, giving us the funding needed to make this project not only complete, but superb, and also giving you an opportunity at getting your hands on some cool one time only merchandise.
Once we hit our goal, we will begin to unlock a treasure trove of awesome things, such as: Movie sized posters, statues, bags, and the list goes on and on. Remember, once the funds stop coming, so do the rewards. But who knows? Maybe we can raise a BA-GILLION dollars and make an entire movie! Maybe we can even pay off Mr. Bay to direct it! (I highly doubt that ;) EXPLOSION!) So follow us! Everyone who donates 50$ or more will be entitled to choose two prizes from each tier!!
If we still have your attention, feel free to check out some art!
Risks and challenges
‘Aint nothing but a thing, We, as a creative team are %100 behind this project and nothing will stop us from reaching our goal of making this comic, NOTHING. Come, snow, rain, cats and dogs living together, mass hysteria, it will only slow down the postage or the printing.
So don’t worry about it, we aren’t.
(Though there are risks in confronting cave trolls which we are not yet ready for. Would any of you happen to have a rail gun which we could barrow?)Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
