Born Dark Issue 0 is a Kickstarter Exclusive Edition prequel to the Born Dark 6 issue mini-series. It's a Dark Fantasy that takes place both in modern America and in a Goblin Realm that lies just on the other side of any reflective surface... if you are unlucky enough to be able to see them.
Malcolm was that unlucky when he was a kid, and he
learned two things because of it:
1) Magic always costs something
2) Never trust a Goblin
Malcolm stole something from the Goblin Realm 20 years
ago. Something important. Something so important that the
Goblin Realm hasn't been the same since he took it.
Bulvis is determined to get it back. He wasn't above using
a kid 20 years ago. Nothing has changed.
What we want to do
Ideally, we'll be able to take this Issue 0 and use it as a way to introduce the BORN DARK world and the rest of the 6 issue mini series to publishers.
"Doesn't that mean that this comic could get published? You keep saying it's exclusive!"
OUR PROMISE: Born Dark Issue 0 will never be published in this edition again. 500 is all we are printing of this particular edition. (thus the limits on the rewards)
If that can't happen, you will have a taste of the Born Dark universe and hopefully you'll want more.
