ABOUT THE BOOK
Beowulf is possibly the oldest surviving long poem in Old English, and it is commonly cited as one of the most important works among Old English literature and fantasy. We decided to retell it, adding our own 7Storm twist.
Our goal is to fund the first issue of Beowulf: The Untold Saga, printed as a standard saddle-stitched comic book which will run a minimum of 28 pages.
ABOUT THE SOUNDTRACK
Jordan is hard at work composing and recording the music for the collector's soundtrack, which will have a minimum of 6 music tracks.
We've allowed "add-ons" for certain reward levels, as indicated in the description of specific reward levels. Simply choose your preferred add-on by adding its dollar amount to your pledge.
Example: Pledge $15 for HARDCOPY COMIC BOOK reward level. Add-on BEOWULF T-SHIRT for $30. Total pledge amount = $45 (shipping not included).
We will ship anywhere in the world! However, as we are based in Canada, we have determined that shipping within North America will cost less. This means that if you live outside North America, the shipping cost will be slightly higher. However, we've done our best to budget and ensure that the shipping costs are fair and favourable to our backers, covering only packaging and mailing expenses.

Risks and challenges
From a production standpoint, there is little to no risk involved because the comic book is finished and the soundtrack is near completion. Any change in the shipment schedule will depend on the quantity of comic books and soundtracks ordered. For example, if our campaign exceeds its funding goal, the production and shipment may take a bit longer.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
