"i've always thought with any luck I was born a spirit. When I was small I used to think no-one could see me" - Elizabeth

The story is based on folktales, fairytales, myths and legends. Stories that usually concern witches, fairies, magic and enchantments. These stories would often have a dark moral to them. This is what I want to capture, to bring back the fairytales that have a darker edge. 

"A Dark Forest" - Issue 1

A Dark Forest is the first 16 page comic book of a series of seven comics. It's an all new detailed hand drawn black and white comic. I have taken it to comic cons all over the UK where it has been very well received. I would love to make the comic more wide spread and share it with all illustration and comic lovers. With your help I will be printing the comic professionally in A5.

Thank you!!

For all your support so far!!

I couldn't do it without your help.

Also thank you kickstarter for adding me to staff picks :)

The Prints are all A3 and were originally hand drawn. They are professionally printed onto ivory card. They are all original illustrations and are not featured in the comic.

Below is a link to my website to see the prints in closer detail

Kickstarter is a great way to get my project out there and share my project with you. With your support I will use the money raised to professionally print the first issue of this comic. Its that simple. 

Thank you so much for looking at my Kickstarter page! You can show your support by sharing this on Facebook or Twitter with your friends. That would help a lot!

Risks and challenges

The comic is all hand drawn and is ready to print professionally. I have printed at home before for comic conventions, so have the layout ready to go. I am aware that I will need enough time to coordinate book design and quality tests, and am in contact with a comic book printer for this. All that's left is the funding to turn this idea into a reality!
