Creator of the Testament
Modern Testament is the debut series from writer Frank Martin. In addition to this extensive anthology, for which he wrote every installment, Frank has contributed to all three volumes of the acclaimed Torsobear series. He also writes novels and short stories, the most recent being Mountain Sickness, a zombie tale that takes place inside a ski resort. For a complete list of Frank's works you can check out his website at www.frankthewriter.com
Although the entire series is written by Frank Martin, he couldn't have made it alone. Every story in Modern Testament is handled by a different art team.
Mythology is one of the strongest and most durable forms of storytelling. Books on ancient myths from all different cultures are often the first fantasy stories kids read about in school. Tales of Horus, Zeus, and Thor continue to captivate us as adults, and the biblical beings in Modern Testament are no different. This book is my attempt to break these legendary characters down to their core and find out what happens when they clash with today's world.
I've come to Kickstarter to fund the first printing of the trade as well as gauge interest for another round of stories. Kickstarter's comics community is as wide and diverse as the tales in this book. If our campaign is a success, it will tell us that Modern Testament is a series worth expanding. Don't worry. There are plenty of biblical beings to choose from. Here's a sample of a full story straight from the trade:
The Horseman of War and I would like to thank you for taking the time to check out our campaign. Modern Testament has been a blast putting together these last few years and nothing would make us happier than seeing this book come to life.

Risks and challenges
All projects face risk, but we've mitigated a lot of them by making sure all books offered as rewards are already finished. All that remains is to print and ship them. Once the campaign is completed we can have the books printed and prepared for fulfillment. Any unforeseen issues would either arise at the printer (who has been reliable for us in the past) or the postal service (who has a fairly good track record of delivering on time). For these reasons we are standing behind a relatively quick delivery time for all physical rewards.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
