About

William ”Magna” Faber is a starving artist, almost literally. He works a dead-end job and lives in a studio apartment, which barely holds the art supplies that he has filled it with. His life is about to change, drastically, and he is not sure how to handle it. He gains the power to manipulate matter meaning: he can take ANY material and begin to mold it into whatever he can imagine. There are limits to what he can do, for now, but it doesn't stop him from trying to make the best of the situation. Not soon after he discovers his abilities, bad things begin to happen around him and the only choice he has is to use his newly found “gift” to fight off these awful things. They just seem to be happening at random but, the more these things happen, the more he begins to suspect something is going terribly wrong in the city he has grown to love. Does he have the power to protect himself and those around him or will he fall into a world of crime and destruction when he cannot handle his stress filled life? William will do his best to make his new life work no matter the cost.

This is going to be a huge project for a writer who loves what he does (that's me, Jon) and a lifetime artist (Dave). We recently decided to work together on something that we are both passionate about. Writing a comic book or, in this case a Graphic Novel! The minute we got together we started creating characters and stories. We finally settled on this, Magna: City of Architects. The story will be deep and the characters will be relatable yet, fantastic. I guarantee the story will hook people and the twists and turns we will take you on will keep you reading until the last page. This is the first graphic novel in what we are hoping to be a series of three. Getting the first Installment done is our main concern but we will state in our stretch goals what the possibilities are for our project.

  • First and foremost this will fund the creation of the First Graphic Novel in the Series. This money is going to help us from the day we get it until the day we release the comic. Our goal of 5,000 dollars is just enough to get everything done. We are here to work and any extra money we get will make this project better in every single way.
  • It is a chance to give the people who help us create our vision, something. The rewards we have are fun for us and for the people receiving them.  
  • The money will also go towards the rewards you get for pledging money.
  • We also plan on buying equipment that will make the process easier for us to complete the project.
  • We really want to get our Graphic Novel seen by a large audience that appreciates what we are pouring our heart and soul into.

A Little More About the Project

This is going to be a large project for the both of us to work on. We have done a lot of small scale things in the past. We plan on doing this as professionally as we possibly can. We have to keep everything on a tight schedule so that we can complete it in a timely fashion. Also, we were very interested in the professional world of comic books and graphic novels so, doing this by the book is going to be a great learning experience for the both of us.

This graphic novel is going to be in black and white. There is a possibility of color depending on the time and amount of funding we get. The funds from this Kickstarter are going to go towards the first of 3 graphic novels in this series. The universe this story takes place in is large and will be very fun to read about. We want everyone that is into comic books to read it. We understand that not everyone will enjoy it and that is something that every writer/artist has to deal with. So, we just want to get the project to as many people as we can. 

Following our main character (Will) through this amazing time in his life will keep the readers hooked. He will face some, seemingly, impossible tasks and push his mind and body past their limits in this first novel.

Risks and challenges

This is a very large project for 2 people to be handling. We have hundreds of pages and hundreds if not thousands of panels to produce. This is our first time actually completing a project this large. There is a large possibility of obstacles arising because we have families and jobs outside of creating this book (or trilogy of books hopefully).

If a seemingly impossible obstacle comes our way we will do whatever necessary to blow through it, like a tank. We have never been more serious about anything in our lives. We have not stopped talking about and preparing for this since the day we brought it up.

If setbacks arise and we are forced to push back our release we will just keep our heads down and power through, so that we can get our rewards and the book out as soon as we possibly can. I hope our backers will understand that. If this does happen we will of course keep them posted as to how long the delay should be.

With this being a first time graphic novel project the problems that could arise are many. We have the whole idea done and have begun story boards but, there is always a chance of writers block. With our families there is always a chance of emergencies arising. Just remember no matter the obstacle we are going to finish this project.
