13 Legends is a graphic novel series where the Arthurian Myths are reimagined in an alternate 1770s where the industrial revolution has come early, and the world is on the cusp of the reemergence of magic...
The First Volume
Volume One follows the exploits of two redcoats, Arthur and Lancelot, as they fight the armies of the Venetian Republic for control of the New World. The two soldiers embark on a life-or-death mission to prevent the outright defeat of the English, and move ever closer toward their destinies, and to uncovering powers greater than the massive empires that carve up the globe.
The planned scope of the full series incorporates many classic Arthurian tales into the body of an original, epic storyline that weaves these timeless, yet re-envisioned, characters and themes into an all new myth.
We're about halfway through production of the book and are raising money to help offset the cost of the remaining artwork. Good artists are't free... nor should they be!
Well, for starters... there's the book!
This pre-publication, hardback edition of Volume One will feature excellent quality paper to show off the artwork and will be made by a high-end printer. The story is over 100 pages in length and the entire book will be 130+ with all of the bonus materials we're stuffing into the appendix, like concept art, maps, and background info on major locations in the world of 13 Legends.
And the best part is...
...this edition is exclusively for our Kickstarter supporters! That's right, we're not going to sell this printing of the book ourselves outside of this campaign. We're not as interested in self-publishing as we are in creating more great content, so we'll be seeking major publication for the series in 2013.
We appreciate your patience!
We realize that asking you to wait for the remainder of the artwork to be produced before getting your book is a lot to ask -- especially in the age of instant gratification -- so we knew we'd need to give you guys something super-special for your faith in our project and patience. We hope this small-run of this high-end book will meet or exceed those expectations.
Set of Character Postcards
Backers who pledge $50 or more will also receive this awesome set of art postcards featuring nine of the characters from Volume One, with the finished artwork on the front, and rough sketches on the back. (And yes, we'll be shipping these separately from the books, so you can receive them sooner)
