Midwinter is a long form graphic novel that meshes the cyberpunk and fantasy genres with a pinch of horror. You can go in expecting magic, cyborgs, mutants, and everything in between! It has its fair share of action and intrigue, but the characters are what's most important to us and they'll be driving the story as it progresses.
A powerful, spellcasting thief named Nox goes after a potent genetic modifier named Asterite that can only be found at Gemini Hospital. He fails to steal it and gets recruited to hospital security, where he has to balance his time fending off criminals like himself and gathering info for his next heist on the hospital.
If this interests you, we have issues #1-5 available to read for free on Tapas and Webtoon. Get a taste for it, see if you like where it's headed, and back this campaign if you'd like to support us in continuing it!
This is our second Kickstarter. Our first one was for Volume 1, which was a compilation of Issues #1-4. Instead of jumping to the next volume, we decided to focus on getting Issue #7 funded with Volume 2 as a stretch goal! We're already half way through the volume's production and need finances for the rest. Here's what we currently offer, with price points under the content still in production:
We're doing it this way largely to pay our artist's wages for 6 months so the pages can get done WAY faster. This would allow her to focus on it instead of keeping it as a side project!
We wanted to give both our new and current fans some options, so here's a visual break down for you:

Curious to where all the money is going?
The basic goal of $8,300 pays for 6 months of production, which covers writing, editing, artwork, printing of issue 7, shipping, and the Kickstarter fees.
Any money pledged beyond our goal will be added wages for our artists to allow them to work solely on the project longer, with every $1,135 buying an extra month!
Want us to keep up that pace longer? Help us get to a full 12 months of Midwinter-only production and unlock extra content!
Special thanks to Midland Pictures for filming and editing the video, Geek Chic Digital Art for producing the Moon Sigil Pendant, and Small E for creating our brand new website! Couldn't have done this without you three, thank you so much!
Risks and challenges
The only real risks are unforseeable life circumstances or printing delays. Since our first Kickstarter, we've gotten a much better handle of our workflow and are able to properly estimate our production levels and keep on track.
If anything comes up, we will be transparent and communicate the situation immediately with updates to follow until it gets resolved!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
