About

Hello

This is my first ever Kickstarter so I am starting small. My aim is to get a few copies of volume 1 (the first arc) of my current webcomic MK's The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde in print. The amount I'm aiming at would get quite a few books printed. The book itself would be 8 by 11 inches, full colour, glossy soft cover, 191 pages long not counting the cover, it is eight chapters long plus an epilogue, and it will include up to three bonus pieces of art. The comic itself is for all audiences and it falls under the fantasy genre with comical and superhero themes. It has actions scenes, but it is all bloodless and there is no NSFW content whatsoever. The style is cartoon and the setting is an alternate universe of London, England in the Victorian Age hence why technology is a bit advanced for the time and there is magic, alchemy and non-human races.

The story itself (as the title implies) is an adaptation of the famous tale by Robert Louis Stevenson, but it is not another Jekyll and Hyde story. This one completely drops out outdated outlook that good and evil are cut and dry, and instead explores our more modern and up to date perception of morality, goodness and evil in its many shades. Just to give you an idea of what I mean, in my book, Hyde is actually just wild and a thief, but good deep down. It borrows characters from both the book and the musical, but everyone is completely reinvented and there are many of my own original characters. In volume 1, we are introduced to both Jekyll and Hyde as they are introduced to each other while adapting to sharing a body. At the same time, we learn that the board of governors is very corrupt and has no qualms about using people or making them look guilty to cover up their own illegal activities. It is up to both Jekyll and Hyde to save the board's most recent scapegoat Mr. Poole from the gallows. If that's not enough, Poole already has bad history with one of the governors and is Hyde's best friend. Will they save him?

It will be a few books this time just dip my feet into the water. I am crossing my fingers and hoping you will help me out.

Thanks in advance.

Risks and challenges

If I don't reach my goal, I'm afraid I won't be able to get those first copies printed yet. I'll be sad, but pick myself up and try again. I will not give up because having a comic book made by me on people's shelves has been life long dream since I was a girl.

If I go over the intended goal, I will use all extra money for extra books.
