About


 Lets get this 350 page magical girl comic to print!

Go to XII: Of Magic and Muses
Go to XII: Of Magic and Muses

Our mousy protagonist Willow lives in a mundane and restricted school, which ends up being the worst place someone could get gifted a magical necklace. Desperately trying to contain the magic within, this act of futility seems to just make matters worse. As the necklace crumbles the school’s secrets around her, Willow is left to wonder if it was a gift sent by friend or foe?

Along the way Willow pulls in the school bully Georgia & her best friend Emma. These necklaces seem to have powers just beyond some sweet new threads.

XII: Of Magic and Muses has been published online as a webcomic since 2016 and after 3 magical years we're headed to print! It is currently updating 3x a week - Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Our comic is rated for a Teen Audience due to language, partial nudity, and scenes of violence.

This will be the first book of the Magic and Muses Trilogy!

The book contains the first 14 full colour chapters (24 pages each) - a few of which have not been published to the website as of yet.

Desktop Wallpaper - $5 CAD

This will be a featured, previously unreleased poster of Willow, Georgia and Emma to fit right on your desktop! We couldn't thank you enough for supporting us!

PDF of the Book  - $10 CAD

A digital copy of the book! This will be a PDF approximately 350 pages which will be a Kickstarter exclusive that includes our 4 featured spreads.  


Poster Prints  - $20 CAD

A choice of our two featured poster prints. These bad boys are 8x11 inches portrait, gloss on cardstock.


The Book - $30 CAD

The main event! After some back and forth with the print we will have approximately 350 pages at a size of 5.5 x 8.5 inches up and out to our digital printer. This will also most likely be the largest time sink in production. Many of these pages have yet to be published online so with any luck the book will be out before or around the same time these pages go up.

As we progress through the campaign we will be announcing our special guest spreads that will be added to the book, featuring the work of Rachel Ho, Jessica Frasier, Kim Sokol and Nabigal-Nayagam Haider Ali!

Book Package - $50 CAD

The book, the poster prints, all digital rewards, and a set of stickers designed after the XII's familiars. 

Signed Bookplate & Button Set - $75 CAD

The book, the poster prints, all digital rewards, a set of buttons on a cardstock display,  and an exclusive designed 3x4 bookplate hand pasted into the cover of the physical copy and signed by me, the creator! Choose from a design featuring Willow, Georgia or Emma and their mischevious beasts.

Acrylic Standee - $100 CAD

The book, the poster prints, all digital rewards, the buttons, the bookplate, and a gorgeous double-sided standee of magical girl Willow! These stand at 150mm (6 inches approx) and can be flipped to show her school uniform or her magical duds.

Custom Magical Commission - $150 CAD

At this level, you will also become an honorary magical girl! Custom print commission of yourself, an OC or someone you know as a Magic and Muses magical girl.

As with most Comic Projects the majority of our fundage will go to Printing and Shipping. Especially Shipping (Thanks Canadaland). As well as our reward tiers and KS fees. However! The more we fund, the easier this gets, so spreading the word is a massive boon.

With a big beefer of a book, our main goal is providing you with the best possible product so we're keeping things simple!

Risks and challenges

It is my first Kickstarter, there are undoubtedly going to be bumps and skids but I feel confident in my research & with the help of my peers who've guided me along the way we can work around any issues that may arise.

The longest part will be sorting out the current pages and making sure they will print with as much vibrancy as we can muster.

After that getting the books and shipping out can cause a few pitfalls with missed or incorrect addresses. Please keep them up to date!
