Press

"If you've been looking for something to read that's just plain fun, something that you can enjoy with your kids, or if you just to harken back to a day when you'd sit around in your pajamas on Saturday mornings wanting nothing more than to be entertained, The Society of Adventurers looks primed to fill that void." - Colin Lalley, Upstart Projects

Why Am I Here?

In all honesty, it’s because I believe that taking my passion project directly to the people, is the best way to get it to print. The money I’m asking for is to cover an initial print run of the full 60+ page (the plus being three short stories, which you can have the ability to collaborate with me on if you choose that reward), full color, graphic novel, and cover the production of additional rewards. If additional funding is acquired, extra funds will help make the printing even better, including the possibility of going hardbound.

I’m here in the hopes that there’s a lot of people out there, clambering for light hearted, humorous adventure stories that feature great characters, and that they’ll help make my dream of seeing this project printed, come true.

Also, make sure to like The Society of Adventurers on facebook, and follow it on twitter. If you enjoy the comic, the best way to support it is to tell others about it!

Referral Program

For every two people who pledge that you've referred, I'll give you an extra copy of the book or a t-shirt for free! Make sure when they pledge they denote that it was you who referred them. If you refer a lot of people, and become entitled to more books, and t-shirts than you can handle, I'll work with you to come up with a very special reward!

The Story

When the Wood King hires "The Society of Adventurers", freelance adventurers, to slay a fearsome dragon, he puts in motion a plot to rid the Deep Dark Forest of their meddlesome presence forever. However, a clerical error causes the Society to switch the details of this job with another;  they think they're to give a vial of slain cats blood to the Wood King, and then return a lost dragon to an old woman.

Things get worse, as the cat they think the Wood King wants dead, escapes inside the Society. With the deadline for delivery closing in, they plot to bring a vial of witches blood instead, provided by graciously by their own Hazel.

Join the society in finding out if this will this put a kink in the evil ancient ritual the Wood King is planning, if they'll ever catch on to their impending doom, and if Hazel and Dribbles will ever be able to catch that stinkin’ evil cat.
