YOU DID IT! We hit our goal and can now bring printed copies of the novels and comic to stores and comic cons! Thank you all so much for you support and excitement for Dark & Day!

We're not done yet! There is still plenty of time for more supporters to join in on the awesome awards! Keep it up!!

 DARK & DAY needs your help to cover printing and production costs for the novels and comics. Together, we can share our love of science fiction and fantasy with the world! 

DARK & DAY is a mash up of everything we love about sci-fi and fantasy stories built into a unique and mysterious world torn between permanent night and day!

The novel series - Dark & Day - begins with three novels that follow the young Jonothon "Jono" Wyer in his adventures across the globe and as he develops incredible powers at the Windom Academy. The narrative style is like Harry Potter or Narnia and it evolves as the characters age two years between each book. A total of 9 books are planned for Jono's series.

Want to see what the art looks like inside the novels? Of course you do! Here it are some examples:

The upcoming comic book series - Dark & Day: Soldiers & Knights - follows two teams from either End of the Earth as they fight to protect their lands and uncover a plot that could bring the world to war! It's like "Scifi X-Men verus Fantasy X-Men" - action, drama, politics, philosophy - its got it all! The first issue is a standard 22 page story that introduces the world and characters of "Soldiers & Knights". If we can keep the series going, we would love to complete the planned 24-issue story arch. The first issue is almost complete now.

Wondering how this comic will actually turn out? Enjoy a work-in-progress preview of the first four pages of DARK & DAY: SOLDIERS & KNIGHTS!

The actions is just heating up, and we haven't even introduced the Knights of the Day yet! Help us make this comic a reality with your pledge!

Our dream for DARK & DAY is to cultivate a wide range of products that come from this vibrant world, and we want you to help use share this shattered planet of machines and magic with the world! 

From the icy planes of the frozen oceans to shimmering golden towers below the still burning sun, the world of Dark & Day is bursting with opportunities for storytelling! So far, we have only scratched the surface of wondrous places to explore!

Compelling characters are the heart of every story. The novels introduce readers to the world of Dark & Day through the eyes of Jono Wyer, a sickly boy from a tiny town under Twilight. He dreams of being a hero, but when he discovers that a wizard from the Day has been hiding in his town he is swept up in a race to save the world from itself! Jono is joined by a diverse supporting cast of friends and foes that will keep readers' heads glued to the books!

For the comic series, we primarily follow a Dark soldier, Lt. Melody Rivet, and a Day knight, Sir Daphne Briar. These tough women are true believers in their cause, but when they get caught up in a plot to destory a city near the Dawn their beliefs and loyalties will be tests. Readers will also get to know their "X-Men"-like teams as well as a wide supporting cast of soldiers, knights and all types of creatures and people across the Dark & the Day.
