This is a project I'm extremely passionate about. Starting with the discovery of magic and delving deeper into a dark past, the story of Charlotte (AKA Charlie) Ambrose is one about finding empowerment and inner strength. I have been working on this project since February 2018 and the story has been in the works for several years now.
Featuring 124 full color pages, Knights of Asherah Volume 1 covers the first several chapters of my comic, which you can read for free, here. However, Volume 1 features brand new artwork and longer chapters than what is currently available to read online. Plus it's signed. Just saying.

All goals hit! Thank you for your support!
What genre is it, you might ask? Well, it's got a little bit of everything. Fantasy, magic, a smidgen of action and a dash of romance.
Magic isn't real.... except that it is.
Charlotte "Charlie" Ambrose discovers that magic is real in the modern world and that she's a descendant of the Celestials; God like beings only known in myths and legend.
All artwork and story are by me, Anadia-chan. I'm a one woman show and a freelance artist in Southern Oregon. I'm an artist... so being a liiiittle weird comes with the gig. Art is my passion and I try to express myself through my stories. I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I do. Thank you for your support!

Risks and challenges
The kind of challenges this project presents is nothing I haven't faced before. Reformatting my webcomic into a printed version is going to be no easy task and neither is redrawing hundreds of art frames. It's a project I'm working on though; regardless of whether or not I raise the funds this time around. I've been working on redrawing my old frames for several weeks now and I can assure you that it won't disappoint.
Right now our biggest risk is delays. Due to all of the stretch goals that have been unlocked, there is a higher work load on me and I am working very, very hard to make sure all of you will be satisfied.
