I am seeking funding to help complete the first issue of my manga King of Sweden: Last Bloodline.
Manga Description: Hitaman (Heatamen) the King of Sweden and possessor of the 13th royal bloodline must find a way to pass his bloodline on before he dies. He resides in a land of 13 countries each with their own royal bloodlines and their own rulers. The royal bloodlines are the life force of each country and each bloodline has it’s own unique power. If the royal bloodlines were to die the countries that they are connected to will also die. Each person in the royal bloodline only has the ability to have one child. This means that at all cost the child can not die or the country will die.
Hitaman’s daughter was killed in an assassination attempt by an unknown assailant making him the last of the 13th bloodline. He seeks vigorously to find another way to pass on his bloodline before he dies or his entire country will die out like the 9th and the 7th nations; who’s bloodlines mysteriously disappeared hundreds of years ago leaving the countries a barren waste land and infested with monsters known as Pharos.
I need you to help the King of Sweden save his country by funding this project.
The idea for this manga came to me back in 2011 when I wrote a song called King of Sweden. It inspired me to write an entire story behind the words to the song. I sat down and wrote the story then I re-wrote the story until I was sure the plot was perfect. Then I set out to find an artist to bring my Manga to life. Then I thought what if I made an entire album based on this story I wrote and set out to make an album for it. However due to lack of funding I was only able to complete the music portion of this Manga. I have now found a great artist and editor who are helping me bring this Manga to life. With your help and funding I will be able to make this Original Manga reality.
So this is where your money is going:
Funding will cover the cost to complete the lettering and the artwork for the comic. As a writer I do not draw or do lettering. The funds will help complete the first issue by covering the cost of the letterer, artist and editor.
Artist Cost: $750
Letterer Cost: $450
This is to be the first Manga with it's own themed soundtrack. This project will end when the first issue is completed.
This Manga is meant for the teen and adult crowd and some of accompanying music will be Parental Advisory.
So what do you get?
I am offering digital copies of the Manga for anyone who donates $5 to the cause.
$10 gets you a paper copy and a copy of the Album sent to your Door!
$50 gets you a copy of the manga + Album + KOS T-Shirt= AWSOME
$1000 Gets you all of the above and I will personally design a Character based on you that will play a major role later on in the series.
Risks and challenges
Potential set back can occur if my artist drawing tools break or my letterer has any complications with placing word bubbles with the style of artwork done by the artist. Each of these issues can be fixed and only will cause a delay in final placement.
