Welcome to the crowdfunding campaign to fund the completion and publishing of the second 18 page comic book of Nevera Tales. We are seeking $1,500 to fund the print run, shipping, and rewards. 

*Update 4/14/18* all backers at the $19 level and higher will have the choice to add a free copy of Nevera Tales 1 to their rewards*

The world of Nevera is overrun with necromancers and undead, vying for power and domination over the land, with only small pockets of humanity left struggling to survive against the darkness. Nevera Tales follows the stories of Nevera's inhabitants as they navigate this perilous and warped world.  

Nevera Tales 2 tells the story of Elisa and Alex. Two undead girls, very different physically and in personality, who might find in each other the inspiration to take control of their destinies.     

Our story begins with Alex, who's soul is trapped inside a mannequin and on the cusp of despair, but is pulled back by Elisa, a centuries old vampire rogue in the body of a young girl. Together they must evade and fight back against the Order of Light, a fanatical regime of knights and inquisitors, whose purpose is to eliminate undead and all forms of magic. 

 Influences include Frankenstein, Hellboy, Sin City, Sláine, The Descent, Interview with a Vampire, Legacy of Kain, and the writings of H. P. Lovecraft, Yukio Mishima, and Jorge Luis Borges.

World Comic Book Review: "Given Mr Bishop’s manifest talent for horror we are surprised he raised so little. This story is deliberately and carefully smeared with foulness. We applaud Mr Bishop’s tradecraft."

Captain Comicbook: "Author Daniel Bishop writes compelling prose." 

Comic Unknown: "This sublime, and rich narrative belongs to Daniel Bishop... The melancholy but spot on illustration was done by Marek Joracki. His dark, alluring art style gives Bishop's story life and I hope to expect more from the duo. It is a surprise how low their Kickstarter reached considering the talent that is behind such a beautifully crafted book."

Risks and challenges

We learned a huge amount from our first successful Kickstarter, and will do an even better job of pleasing our backers this time around.

The script, panels, and cover are complete, all that is left is to print and deliver. We are working with the same printer and shipper as we were so happy with the first comic book.

Any unforeseen issues or obstacles that occur can be overcome with my own income as I have a full time stable career.
