Thistil Mistil Kistil takes place during the Viking age. It tells the story of a young warrior named Coal and his quest to reach a promised afterlife. Past transgressions of the trickster Loki, however, have put a considerable kink in Coal's plan, and before he can reach Valhalla, he must complete a quest given to him by Odin. Loki agrees to help, but he doesn't make it easy on the surly young warrior.

This full-color comic has been serialized online since 2009 and can be read for free right here. This story is recommended for readers ages 12 and up.

The print version of the comic will be a 6" x 9" paperback and contain the first five chapters as well as a special 24 page bonus story made especially for the book. At the end will be space for backer's names to be printed as a thank you, as well as some notes that go further into the historical aspect of the comic, and some development art.

My name is Sarah Schanze, and I like to draw stories. I've been developing, writing, and illustrating Thistil Mistil Kistil (TMK) for five years now. Outside of TMK I'm a full-time visual designer at an education company that creates online curriculum for all grades. You can see examples of work done outside of TMK at my portfolio website.

If you like the story, I would appreciate any support. Thank you for reading!

Risks and challenges

This is my second Kickstarter attempt, and while I can't exactly guarantee the delivery dates, you will definitely get whatever you back. Since opening an online store I've got a better idea of how to ship items both in the US and internationally. One reason the rewards are small in size is to keep shipping costs down.
