Blindsprings: Volume 1 by Kadi Fedoruk

Blindsprings is a comic about magic, lost princesses, secret societies, and ancient spirits long forgotten...

A lost princess named Tamaura survives a revolution by making a deal with the Spirits of the forest. Pledged to them for three hundred years, the princess is about to fulfill her pact when a young man finds her and decides for himself that she is meant to be saved, whether she likes it or not. His "rescue" pulls Tamaura out of her timeless sanctuary and into a world that advanced hundreds of years without her...where a civil war is brewing over the same magic that flows through her veins.

Help us release a print edition of the first volume of the Blindsprings webcomic: a whopping 240+ page tome!

Kadi Fedoruk and Hiveworks are teaming up to print Volume 1 of Blindsprings - first as a softcover graphic novel, but also as a limited edition hardcover if we reach our Stretch Goals. Volume 1 will collect the first five chapters of the webcomic available online, which is over two years of content!

In addition, in this celebration of all things Blindsprings, we've prepared specialty rewards and one-of-a-kind items for the fans. See tier details below and get yourself something fun. :)

The primary production costs of this Kickstarter will go toward printing this massive book and shipping copies out to pledgers around the world. Hiveworks will be handling the administration for this project to make sure everything runs smoothly and rewards go out in a timely fashion.

Blindspring's beautiful Volume 1 will be printed with Print Ninja.

Thank you for such an incredible response! More Stretch Goals have been added below to make this book and your reward even better than before!

NOTE: The $60 "Wayfarer Team-up Tier" is not included in the $50+ tier bonuses listed below (since it's a double-packaging of a lower tier).

Risks and challenges

This Kickstarter is backed by Hiveworks Comics, a creator-owned publishing house and studio that supports hundreds of webcomics.
