Hello. My name is Justin Gray, I have written or co-written 11 comics and graphic novel projects successfully funded through Kickstarter and hundreds others for publishers like Marvel, DC, Dark Horse, Image, IDW and many more. Aside from my own projects I've written comics starring Jonah Hex, Wonder Woman, Power Girl, Harley Quinn, Superman, Batman, Wolverine, X-Men, Iron Fist, and many more. I love those characters but I also love creating my own characters and telling stories that I'm personally invested in.
To that end, I'm back on Kickstarter hoping to get your support for a new original Fantasy Graphic Novel called ARTHUR BLACKFROST.
This 8.5" X 11" original dark fantasy graphic novel is beautifully illustrated by Laura Rimaszombati, whose unique and vibrant style brings this story to life joins me on this adventure. The pages are moody and full of energy that leaps from the page transporting you into a mysterious world of mermaids, witches, sea monsters, ghosts and so much more. Check the campaign updates for more information about the process.
After his father abandons his family, a young fisherman named Arthur inherits a curse that has plagued his bloodline for generations.
In a remote fishing village surrounded by vast seas and faced with a magical heritage, he never knew existed, Arthur will soon discover some old folk tales about his island home are true...and they could be the key to breaking the curse or they might make it much, much worse. Arthur Blackfrost is for fans of dark fantasy and fables this is a tale of magic, family, and sacrifice. The story is about things broken and things put back together and the sacrifices people make in the name of love.
Arthur Blackfrost will be 8.5” X 11” (280mm x 216mm).
I’m very excited to announce that International shipping is included for the following rewards:
THE SAILING MASTER PAPERBACK $20.00
THE QUARTERMASTER HARDCOVER $30.00
These books will be printed on demand and shipped directly to you.
Thank you for your time and we hope you'll become a backer!
Risks and challenges
I do my best to minimize risk by working with the best artists possible in a professional and respectful way. That said, artists are human beings with lives, families, bills and time restraints. I'm projecting completion of the graphic novel in spring of 2019 so Laura can work to the best of her ability. Work has already begun and we have some of those pages showcased here.
GOOD NEWS! One consistent challenge I have faced is the ridiculous and inflated cost involved with international shipping. I'm happy to report that I have found a solution that allows me to reach more potential backers with this beautiful graphic novel than in previous campaigns.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
