IF EVERYONE YOU EVER LOVED DIED, WOULD YOU WANT TO LIVE?

PLEDGE £10 AND MORE AND YOU WILL HAVE YOUR NAME PRINTED IN THE COMIC!

"If everyone you ever loved died, would you want to live?" This is a question six year old K'abel has to ask her self. Consumed by loneliness, guilt and spiralling sense of complete abandonment, K'abel is disconnected, and truly lost in the darkness. But when forced to choose between life and death, she realises that even in our darkest moments, a fire still burns within. And the darker it's gets, the brighter the flame. Raised by Raptors is the epic journey of a girl who has lost everything she knew and loved. But what if everything she thought she knew, she never knew at all? The first installment of a brand new graphic novel written Oliver Sykes & Illustrated by Ben-Ashton Bell.

"Raised by Raptors" is the first issue in an ongoing series. It will be printed in Full Colour, 260mm x 170mm and between 36-44 pages. (depending on opening and closing pages). We are aiming for high level of print quality throughout this project and we plan on using sustainable printing methods wherever possible.

The kickstarter version will be a First Edition print run of the comic. If the demand is high we will do a Second Edition print run, but it will be separate to this kickstarter version. Once we are about 4-6 issues in, we plan on releasing "Raised by Raptors" as a hardcover graphic novel!

Currently, the first issue is 85% complete. It will be completed by the time this 45 day campaign is up. From here we will be placing orders for the comic and posters. Hopefully, the printing process won't take too long and you'll have your pledge in your hands by around April. We will be updating the status of the comic every step of the way, so you will be along for the ride!

NOTE: £15,000 is not the amount we need to print this comic. Kickstarter makes you set a reserve goal and we wanted to set the goal high! This kickstarter is basically a pre-sale platform in which to do it all from. However, if we don't reach the goal, nothing gets printed...

So, we really need everyones help to make it all happen... So let as many people as possible know about it, so we can make it a reality for you all!

Take a look to the right and you will see heaps of pledge options for you to choose from! Anything that you can pledge will help us get this off the ground. Below are some visuals of the pledges. We really can't do this without you guys! And thanks so much in advance!

Here is a list of FREE things that will get added to your pledge the higher we go! We need your help to PROMOTE THIS KICKSTARTER! So in return, we wanna give you stuff!! So share it with anyone and everyone! Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Blogs, Websites... EVERYWHERE!! The more you share the quicker you will get to UNLOCKING more stuff.

THANKYOU!!!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

As the comic is nearly finished, we don't see too many problems with completing the pledges. The only real set back that we can see is with the printers. Sometime printers can have longer waiting times for jobs than expected. However, we are on the case and everything should be fine for the expected delivery date in April.
