About

I Am Hexed: is a 4 part series full color, original comic written  by me, Kirsten Thompson. 

Thanks to the magic of our amazing Kickstarter Coven our Issue #1 campaign was an amazing success!

This Kickstarter Campaign is for Issue #2. The second issue script is complete and with your help we can go full speed ahead to commission art production and make issue #2 a reality!

Thanks for checking out my Kickstarter and Joining the Movement!

I Am Hexed is a supernatural political thriller. There’s magic, mystery, personal drama and an accidentally carnivorous plant.

Witches have been a part of the political fabric of Washington D.C. since it was founded. It’s only since the 1960s that witches stood together and fought to take back the word “Hexed”. A movement was ignited when witches came out of the shadows and proudly showed off their broomsticks. Now with the struggle for equality ongoing, Charlotte "Charlie" Helm, a junior staff member for Senator Royce, has been thrust into the murky and dangerous waters of political games between witches and their adversaries.
 

As anti-witch tensions escalate, Charlie and Jaya enlist the help of fellow witch and scientist Florence to figure out who's framing Charlie and find answers…while the magical authorities close in on them.

I am also a staff writer at ComicsMNT, and have contributed to Teen Vogue, Femsplain, Women Write About Comics, Talking About Comics and various other sites.

Flash forward a couple of years and a number of frustration filled days over the delay of Sailor Moon Crystal, she decided to simply say screw it and make her own Magical Girl comic. And from there – Agents of the Realm was born. She’s had the great pleasure of working on a number of titles, including Invader Zim and Rick and Morty: Lil’ Poopy Superstar.

Risks and challenges

The production and project management of this title is “in-house” and comfortably in my control, eliminating many variables that could cause delays. That being said, some of the things that rely on external production (The manufacture of rewards, logistics of packing & shipping individual rewards) may cause some delays.

Depending on the print quantity, we may choose to print our books in Canada or overseas. If so, there could be problems such as our books being held in customs, and longer shipping times.

I have spent the past eight months planning and refining this project. I have accounted for these potential problems and worked them into our schedule.

Everyone will be updated every step of the way, throughout the entire production process. Of course, we will notify you of any setbacks that may arise.

Thank you for casting your bit of magic on I Am Hexed!
