Mythica follows the journeys of a group of unique individuals including a Scottish soldier, a tenacious MI6 agent, a naive young Belgian girl, and several others who don't know each other yet who all find themselves facing off against vampires, gargoyles, and demons. At the heart of the story is how these characters come together, become a family, and face incredible odds to save mankind.

Why Kickstarter? 

This comic is fully illustrated but your help is needed to get it printed and distributed on a larger scale. The goal is to have it seen by the world and that is where YOUR help is needed. Printing and shipping isn't cheap so I need your help to bring Mythica to the masses.

If you can't pledge now please share on Facebook, Twitter, Intagram or anywhere else you can think of that your friends will see it. Every little bit helps!

Where does the money go?

Every penny raised goes towards making Mythica:Darkness Rising. This means it covers printing, supplies, shipping, fees, taxes( can't forget about taxes). Anything extra will go toward funding the making of the next Mythica graphic novel currently in pre-production (and who knows, I may even start paying myself someday.) The goal is to start bringing these Mythica books faster and faster, so for the next graphic novel I will be hiring other creative talent like colorists and inkers to come on board instead of doing all the art myself. This will increase the speed that books get in your hands tremendously. That is also why this time I have included these STRETCH GOALS!
