A Tale of Shadows is a 28 page fantasy comic set in a world ideologically split by the arrival of new technology.
When "The Machine" is unveiled in his hometown, Felix, a young loner, finds himself caught in the middle of an escalating confrontation between religious group 'The Men of the Way' and a ragtag team of rogue scientists/artists, the Sciencestitions.

What your pledge means
Making a pledge means that you will help make 'A Tale of Shadows' a reality. The majority of funds will go towards printing and because we intend to create something that has a level of print quality, the costs can stack up pretty quickly. Secondly, it means you'll get something in return for your pledge. The more you wish to pledge, the more perks and rewards you get.
If you like what you have heard / seen so far, please take a look at what rewards are on offer. Thank you for all your support.

A Tale of Shadows is something the three of us have been working on for awhile. Decisions on the story and the art direction have come through excessive planning to make sure we deliver a professional, finished product. Book 1 is complete and the story is planned for a total of 5 books. The outline for each book is already complete so you don't have to worry about a "second issue never coming out" or not "finishing the series". We are working on it. We just need some help to get Book 1 out in to your hands.
If you have any questions about the project, or the rewards, please let us know.
Thanks again and even if you don't pledge, please share, tweet, blog etc. It all helps.
Lyndon, Paul and Tyler.
Risks and challenges
Since the book is complete, there is very little risk. You are basically preordering the comic. If all goes to plan you should have the book in your hands by the end of July. Any delays, or problems and we will keep you all updated.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
