My name is Nikki Stu, I am a UK based comic book creator living in Sheffield. For the past five years, I have worked on an ongoing series of comics called "Thank Goodness for Herald Owlett", and am now working on something new...
Honeydew and Magic follows the story of a girl named Sprout - She doesn't know too much about her past, though one thing she does know is that she was human until a tree spirit named Treesun came along, who lives in her head. You'll get to meet Terra and Goji, two other folks she lives with and see their adventures in the strange world they inhabit. Oh, I should also mention that they live in a magic shop selling all kinds of different magic teas. Some of which are explosive.
Currently, I am halfway through inking Honeydew and Magic. However there is still a great amount that needs doing, as this is both my largest single issue at 64 pages, and my first comic to be produced in FULL, EYE-POPPING COLOUR from front to back. Making it my biggest project so far.
Here's a quick run through of the rewards that will be available to you...
NEW!!! STRETCH GOALS!
Super that the project got funded, lets add some nice little extras!
£3,200- If I reach this goal everyone who backed a tier with an item included will also get a unique sticker and a unique badge sent out to them as well.
£3,000- if I reach this goal then everyone who backed £15 or more will get the sticker and a limited edition print, only avalible through the Kickstarter.
£2,700- if I reach this goal then everyone who backed an amount that contains a book will get a unique sticker inside, saying who the book belongs to and signed by me.
Four season Badges
The badges come as a set of four, one for each of the main characters and each one of them representing a different season.
Golden Dragon Tote bag
The Golden Dragon tote bag will be a lovely golden yellow coloured bag, with the characters screen printed in a chocolate brown colour on top.
A5 Colour samples
The A5 painting you'll receive will be one of a kind specially for you, and in full colour. You can select any character you like as the subject, or if you're happy to have a random character, I'll select one from one of my comics.
Small Papecraft samples
These papercrafts tend to be a lot cuter looking than the larger ones. I can easily fit in one character on a background but nothing too complex, what you have is up to you.
Large papercraft samples
Due to the size of these, they do take a little more time to make, but you will get a greater level of detail. Again, the character can be any you choose.
More updates are on the way, any questions at all please feel free to message me, thanks for taking the time to read this and thanks for the support!
Risks and challenges
Volume 1 of Honeydew and Magic will offer a glimpse into a much larger adventure. It introduces all the main characters, the world they inhabit and also the kind of evil they will be facing.
The funds from this Kickstarter will get Honeydew and Magic printed, as well as cover costs for all added extras for backers. I'm aiming to get at least 300 copies of the book done. If I exceed my kickstarter goal I'll add some extra pages into the book.
The comic itself is roughly halfway inked. I am early in the process of adding colour into the book, and am aiming to get the comic done for late summer. All being well I will have the comic printed by November 2013 and then shipped out to everyone by early December.
