The 24 hour stream has concluded with eleven more pages finished (thank you so much to everyone who attended)! I'm still online a lot, and there's a good chance if I am, I'm drawing this comic!
Pledge any amount to read the first 22 pages of the comic RIGHT NOW!
Beggars can't be choosers... unless you're a pickpocket! Leo and Winn are a pair of brothers who are thick as thieves (literally), who get more than they bargained for when they attempt to rob a mysterious white-haired wizard. Next thing they know they're stuck with a set of bizarre curses that seem to get worse each day.
They weren't making a lot of progress on their quest to reverse their curses until they ran into Sophie, a lonely kleptomaniac with a knack for shoplifting and throwing knives. Now they're an unstoppable team - provided Sophie doesn't decide to run off in the middle of the night and take all their stuff.
Cursed is a medieval fantasy adventure with a light sense of humor that isn't afraid to tackle themes of friendship, identity, loss, and what it means to be human.
The first installment of this series - Cursed Issue 1 - is a 120 page black and white graphic novel that will be printed in late July or early August. The entire series will span 10 issues, with 1 or 2 issues coming out every year. I'm not planning to run a Kickstarter for every book, but this campaign page will be kept up to date with the series, and supporters of this campaign will be sent links to preorder new issues at a discount.
Stretch goals are tied to the bonus content PDF that all backers will get shortly after the campaign ends. More goals met means more content!
- $1,000 (Original campaign goal) - PDF contains 40+ pages of bonus content, including early sketches, excerpt from storyboards, and full resolution backgrounds. Also includes Cursed Issue 0, a prequel I wrote a few years ago.
- $1,100 - Adds a 17 page preview for Issue 2 to the PDF. 50+ pages total
- $1,300 - Adds ALL the full sized backgrounds I drew while working on this comic. 60+ pages total
- $1,500 - Adds the FULL storyboards I sketched out as part of my writing process. 100+ pages total
- ??? - Maybe more!
I'm Micah Amundsen, a 23 year old Minnesotan comic artist. I graduated from University of Wisconsin Stout almost exactly a year ago, and have been doing comics full time ever since. I write and illustrate the webcomic The Roommate From Hell, and have recently started working with Avenue A to illustrate a children's graphic novel. In my spare time I play video games, write and perform music, and play with cats.
Risks and challenges
The comic isn't actually done yet, so it's possible the final pages will take me longer to complete than planned. Also, there's always a chance delays or errors will happen during the printing process. Overall, these challenges are minimal, and I'm excited to get this comic into your hands as soon as possible!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
