Knights-Errant: Volume 1 by Jennifer Doyle

$35,845

892

Welcome to the Kickstarter for Knights-Errant: Volume 1!

Knights-Errant is an epic political drama about gender, race, and religion - with a healthy dose of gallows humor. It follows a wild-eyed vagabond named Wilfrid who’s seeking private revenge...until they get thrown in jail. The arrest drops Wil into some local power struggles between a royal family and a rogue Margrave, but the entanglement also leads Wil to a young captain named Oswald. Oswald seems to be hiding secrets of his own, and Wil is intrigued.

Long story short, Wil's little quest for revenge isn't so little anymore.

The series has been running for years, but more recently, Jennifer Doyle rebooted it as Knights-Errant: Pavane. This is the first volume of that reboot, which is now Jenn's definitive edition of the series.

Read it online right now at sparklermonthly.com!

This series has never been in print, so join us for the first deluxe, full-color paperback, featuring Chapters 1 - 3 and exclusive bonus material!

In addition, this Kickstarter is our opportunity to release new Knights-Errant merchandise - from the cute to the ridiculous - and offer a chance to be drawn into the comic for the hardcore fans. See details below and get yourself something fun!

The majority of the funds will go toward printing the book and shipping it around the globe, as well as printing up the other tier items (sexy body pillow cases are worth every penny). Sparkler Monthly, the digital magazine that currently publishes Knights-Errant in monthly installments, will be running this Kickstarter and ensuring that all rewards are prepared and shipped.

This beautiful, full-color book will be printed with Print Ninja.

If we reach our initial goal of $15,000, we can unlock new prizes, free upgrades, and maybe even...extra short stories or an audio drama?! Be sure to check back here for updates!

This book has been a long time coming, and we hope you’ll join us and become a part of it. Thank you so much for your support!

Risks and challenges

Sparkler Monthly/Chromatic Press has run four successful publishing Kickstarters in the past, and our core staff has stayed the same, although we've also expanded and welcomed new staff members to help things run more smoothly. We've also teamed up with the larger publisher Hiveworks Comics, which will further reduce the risks.

If a backer is concerned now or in the future and isn't satisfied with the project updates, our editors can be contacted directly through Kickstarter or at editorial@chromaticpress.com.
