About

Never Satisfied is an ongoing fantasy webcomic intended for general audiences. This Kickstarter's goal is to print the first book of the series into a beautiful softcover volume. Help us bring a little magic to your bookshelf!

Never Satisfied is a tale of magic apprentices pitted against each other in competition, dealing with issues of privilege and how difficult it can be to understand others. It is hosted by Hiveworks and can be read online here. It stars Lucy Marlowe, a non-binary magician’s apprentice out to prove they belong in this world of magic just as much as anyone else, though that’s easier said than done...

In this world, all magicians have an animal familiar as a companion, and use their skills in tandem with their jobs—anything from baking to guarding the city. To have magic is to have access to a much wider array of opportunities, but one opportunity is more coveted than the rest... earning the title of Representative. Apprentices compete in a series of tasks, demonstrating their abilities, until there can be only one champion of their city! 

Never Satisfied features an enormous cast of colorful characters, and explores the friction that arises between those that have, and those that have not. Can friendship bloom in the midst of competition? Can anybody truly understand anyone else? Just what does it mean to be a representative, and at what cost does glory come? 

Volume One establishes the contest, the personal lives of Lucy and their competitors, and the rumblings of trouble far bigger than any one of them can handle alone...

Book One will collect the first five chapters of the comic, plus a few exclusive bonus illustrations. The book will be a full color, 7"x10.5" softcover volume.

Backers can select from several support tiers that offer a variety of rewards, both digital and physical. Check them out below!

Digital rewards include a digital wallpaper set and an eBook (PDF) copy of the book. Physical rewards, in addition to the book, include a set of four post cards and an Ivy keychain. At the Representative tier, you can get an original illustration of yourself or a character with a familiar, drawn in the style of the comic!
