Help print the first volume of Unsounded, a fantasy-adventure comic about sorcery, hidden truths, and unconventional families.
1,275 backers pledged $43,383 to help bring this project to life.


I have no words.

Well, I have one. WOW. Not only did you guys devour the goal like Duane would love to devour a tour bus, but you practically had second helpings. Thank you SO MUCH, both for pledging and for helping to spread the word! I finally feel like Unsounded is a legitimate thing now! And I can't wait to spread printed copies of it to the far corners of the earth.

You may notice there have been a few reward changes. I nixed the top tier rewards (don't ask for them back please, they're gone) in favour of offering more watercolour illustration rewards. BUT! I won't be putting those up until next week for Reasons. I'll send out an update when they're posted.

For now, I want to announce a stretch goal. In lieu of adding bells and whistles to the physical edition of the print book, something I have never seen the point of, I want to add CONTENT to the book. So if we reach 25,000 by the end of the drive, I'll create and include in the book an exclusive illustrated Duane and Sette story to bridge the time between the end of the third chapter and the beginning of the fourth. I think you will like it.

In the meantime, thanks again for supporting the comic. It really means the world.

      You were always legit. The rest of the world just needed a chance to show you ;)

      I love illustration gallery type stuff in books. Awesome to see another story coming, but if you're wondering what else to do I wouldn't mind seeing some of those poll voter incentives and whatever other stuff you have around of sketches and whatnot in the back :3

      I think we'll be getting that extra story, only ~$3225 left! Wheee, best christmas present to myself ever.

      Jill, my thoughts exactly. This is my absolute favorite webcomic, and the only story other than Gunnerkrigg that I would want to purchase. Thanks for printing it, Ashley!

      I am so exited for this.

      i actually shouted out loud when i first saw the icon that you're finally doing a print version. Of all the 20-40 web comics i follow, this and one other comic would be the only ones i would spend money on to have a physical copy of. Thanks so much for putting in so much life in the Unsounded cast and world!

      Every penny's well earned, Ashley. You've got got a knack for storytelling, both visually and verbally. I look forward to the extra chapter. It's inevitable. ;D

      Dan: That depends on how fast she unlocks more 100 dollar watercolors so I can hand her my wallet and let her have her sweet, sweet way with it - as can her other rabid fans.

      I'm really tempted to start a pool on how long it takes this to hit $25K... I say another 20 hours (as of Sept. 20, 16:30 EDT)
      Anyone else?
