About

Series Overview:

Long ago, the six nations fell victim to the ruthless tyranny of the Demon King and his Serpen. He burned all who opposed him and spared few. With little hope for liberation, nobles from each nation journeyed to an ancient floating city where they pleaded with the Spirits for help. Six warriors, one from each nation, were granted a powerful Serpen of their own, which they used to defeat the Demon King.

Many centuries have passed and the tradition continues as the fifty year life cycle of the Serpens will be renewed with a new generation of Serpens and riders. Young nobles from every nation will, once again, travel to the floating city with the hope of leading the world in peace.

Princess Carly, being the only noble of proper age from her nation, has prepared her entire life to become a Serpen Rider. Accompanied by the Royal guard and her handmaiden, Skylin, she sets out on the long road with glory on her mind. However, powerful forces are emerging from the shadows and seek a dark future for the world.

The Story Continues:

After the success of our first Kickstarter, we are thrilled to bring to you issue 2 of our award winning series ("Best Fantasy Book of 2017"-Comixcentral), SKYLIN. The original writing team is back to continue the story where it left off as Skylin and Princess Carly enter the mystical floating city.

The Team:

  • Story: Frederick Packard, Joshua Valliere
  • Letterist: AJ Young
  • Pencils/Inks/Colors: Kyle Petchock 

Here's how it breaks down: Skylin Issue 2 is 100% complete already! Like the first issue, this is a 36 page, fully colored comic book. We're using an 85lb cover weight, gloss finish with a gloss laminate and 70lb interior page weight with a gloss finish. This book is going to look incredible when finished (thank you KrakenPrint).

What we need to fund:

Nothing in comics comes cheap and that goes especially for printing. Our printing costs will run us close to $2400 while shipping these books out to our backers is an estimated $850. Then, of course, KS takes their share. This makes our total $3500.00 USD

Risks and challenges

The book is complete. We're printing through KrakenPrint and the files have already been approved. We're printing the books using an offset printer, which ensures the best quality. Unless a natural disaster occurs, we're 100% ready to go.
