Hi! My name is Jess Smart Smiley and I'm the creator of more than a dozen books for young readers, including:
- Upside Down: A Vampire's Tale
- Rumpus on the Run: A Monster Look-n-Find Book
- Let's Make Comics! An Activity Book to Create, Write, and Draw Your Own Cartoons.
My new book, Fantasy Quest, is an all-ages comic book featuring fun, lovable characters, a world worth getting lost in, and a series of interactive mazes for the reader to complete and keep the story moving.
I've loved reading comics and fantasy adventures ever since I was little, and I'm a sucker for fun and unique paper puzzles, challenges, and activities.
After reading the wonderful comic adventure Maze Quest by Wai Wai Pang and Ed Cheverton, I was reminded of the mazes my friends would make in fifth grade, and of the silly pass-along comics we would make during class. I quickly filled up several sketchbook pages with characters, environments, and ideas, which naturally developed into a story about a girl with red hair, awakened by a frog.
More Than a Comic
Fantasy Quest is a comic adventure, but it also includes mazes for the reader to complete and move the story forward. It's a comic that you can play.
☆ I'm only printing 250 copies of Fantasy Quest, and including an original drawing and collectible pin with each copy. ☆
What Are You Waiting For?
I've finished writing and drawing the book, I've designed all 3 enamel pins and am set up with a manufacturer--I just need your help to cover printing, production, and shipping costs. Let's do this!
Fantasy Quest is all about fun, adventure, and celebrating comics and novelty. With your help we can unlock the following bonus rewards.
Risks and challenges
We need to fund this project. I can handle all the writing, drawing, printing, manufacturing, and shipping--but I need your help to fund this thing. Let's make it happen!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
