Straight to the goods!
Evadrion was a rebellious Angel until her memories were taken. Her winged peers have brought her back to the light but keep her in the dark. The imminent threat of the Diabolics keeps her under control. She wants to help, truly! But an Angel becomes more trouble than she’s worth when too many questions are asked...
The story is rated R for the occasional sex and boobs. Blood and gore is common but never gratuitous.

Hi! I’m Amélie Hutt.
Originally from Belgium, I’ve been living in California for over ten years now. The sun is a little harsh on my fragile amphibian skin (Belgium is cold and rainy! Don’t go!! We want the chocolate all for ourselves!) so I stay in my cave all day and paint at night, dreaming of real chocolate.
I’ve been working as a professional illustrator since 2012, contributing to super cool projects like Lord of the Rings LCG, Game of Thrones LCG, Star Wars LCG, Android Netrunner, Fury of Dracula...

Why do I make comics?
High school was hell for me so I spent the whole time inside of my head, building up the place of birth of Evadrion, Metatron and Azazel...
I always found myself at home with images, drawing everyday for as long as I can remember.
People used to tell me: “You should draw comics.” Belgium is the birth place of European comics if you will (Tintin, Astérix & Obélix, ...) but for some reason, it never clicked. I felt disconnected.
It's only after looking at amazing webcomics like SSSS (Minna Sundberg), Unsounded (Ashley Cope) and Spindrift (Elsa Kroese/Charlotte E. English), all amazing artists, that I realized I didn’t have to fit into a mold. I could do it my own way!
Why Kickstarter?I want this book to be as beautiful as I envisioned it. To make it a reality, I need the funds to hire the talented KrakenPrint for a 500 offset print run. Because I’m not big on conventions, (Out of my cave?? Imagine that!) participating to this Kickstarter is your guaranteed opportunity to get your own copy of this book. Not only that but this campaign is the only place to acquire the Kickstarter-exclusive cover variant of the Graïnne, with a numbered and signed bookplate. Amazing. And rare! Oh.
What will the funds be used for?
58% of the funds are for printing alone because it's such a nice thick book. A good 28% goes into shipping because it's a HEAVY 2 lbs book! (But what's more seductive than a thick, heavy book? Please answer that for me.)
The remaining 14% goes into fees and contingencies, in case anything happens. It's good to be cautious.
Did you need a taste? Oh, but please! Take a peek, a good bite!
You can read the entirety of Volume I (except for the 38 unpublished pages that will be in the book) for free at:
Of all the pages featured in Volume I, 38 pages haven't been published online!

Risks and challenges
As a Kickstarter enthusiast, I know what it means to put forth your hard-earned trust and money into a campaign. In order to make you happy backers, I minimized all the potential risks and challenges that could occur from this project.
The book is complete, all the art is done and ready to go to print as soon as Kickstarter sends over the funds. I chose to work with KrakenPrint, who are very enthusiastic about this project and are helping me to carry it to completion in the most professional manner.
Since I’m not an outside-goer, KrakenPrint will also be handling and shipping the books to you in the most efficient way possible.
This campaign is my first Kickstarter and I treat it with the utmost attention and care, even attending The ComixLaunch Course for creating a successful Kickstarter campaign.
This project is my baby. It is extremely important to me that it lives up to its expectations and leaves you a rewarded and highly satisfied backer.
My thanks to you for your invaluable support.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
