A Tale of Shadows is a 28 page fantasy comic. After "The Machine" is turned on by Felix, technology has arrived to the town of Wavefront, dividing the population between the spiritual and scientific. Leaving Felix to suffer the consciences of his actions.
Earlier this year we launched A Tale of Shadows Book 1: Something Out of Nothing, on Kickstarter and was successfully funded. We understand you might not have heard of us or A Tale of Shadows before, so no matter what you pledge, all backers will get a downloadable PDF of book 1. This is to make the book as accessible as possible and if you'd like a physical copy of Book 1, simply add £4 to your chosen pledge.
A Tale of Shadows: Cause & Effect is the second book in the series and will continue where book 1 left off.
Art style / feedback
Before we started on book 2 we reviewed what we had done so far. Listening to feedback (we do listen to what you guys have to say) and discussing how we wanted to push everything forward. As a result, we have drawn more detail into the line work, used a richer, more diverse colour pallet and refined our typeface for the speech bubbles.

What your pledge means
Making a pledge will help us continue the story of A Tale of Shadows. The majority of funds goes towards printing because we want to create something that has a high level of quality. This does mean that the costs do stack up pretty quickly. However, the quality we aim for is why you'd want something in a print over a digital copy. In return for pledging, you will get rewards. The more you wish the pledge, the more perks and rewards you get.
If you like what you've seen so far, please take a look at what rewards are on offer. Thanks for your support.
Every backer will get a downloadable PDF of A Tale of Shadows Book 1: Something out of Nothing. If you'd like a physical copy, simply add £4 to your chosen reward.

After completing Book 1, we came to Kickstarter to pitch a finished product. Thanks to people's support, it's out there in the world. Now that book 2 is finished, we need help to do the same. If your new to the series, we have planned for 5 books in total. We know what happens in each book and how everything develops so you don't need to worry about "a third issue never coming out" or "finishing the series". We will keep working on it. We simply need help to get Book 2 printed, out in to the world and 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. To keep the barrier to entry as low as possible, all backers will get a downloadable PDF of A Tale of Shadows Book 1: Something Out of Nothing. This is to so all readers will be up to date and ready to continue to story in A Tale of Shadows: Cause & Effect (Book 2).
If all goes to plan, we are aiming to have the book in your hands by January to avoid postage delays around Christmas. Any delays or problems and we will keep you updated.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
