Welcome to the Mythoverse - a brand new shared comic universe brought to you by Wikid Publishing, and the creative team of Dan Sacharow, Matt Trinh and Brett McGowan!
Prepare to step into a rich, fully realized modern fantasy universe filled with excitement, magic, adventure, romance and action, and populated with living, breathing and genuinely relatable characters. The stories that can be told in this universe are quite literally limitless, but we will be launching with these three tales, each written in a distinct genre and drawn in their own distinct style by an exceptional team of artists.
The Mythoverse is comprised of the following three titles.
Book the First: CHANGELING: An Urban Fairy tale
Written by Brett McGowan, Pencils/Inks by Victor Campan, Colors/Letters by GingerFoxy
Young Maeve MacKenzie has never really fit in. And now she must contend with the fact that she is a Changeling, part of both our world and the mystical Fae realm. Can she successfully reconcile her Banshee heritage with her Christian faith?
CHANGELING is suitable for a Young Adult audience.
Check out the Changeling theme by Zaalen Tallis! Support at the $8 CHOOSE YOUR DESTINY: FAE level or the $15/$30 level to receive an MP3 download of this track!
Book the Second: Adobe Kroger - Dame Commander
Written by Dan Sacharow, Art by Leandro Panganiban, letters by Eric Weathers. Cover colors by Brett Smith.
Adobe Kroger is a young and inexperienced holy knight charged with leading her very first mission to rescue a group of innocent girls from a depraved, hedonistic cult. With a heavily troubled past, her inner demons are often far more difficult to smite than the flesh and blood kind she must face in the course of her righteous duties! Follow her as she uncovers the truth behind a dark conspiracy and confronts her deepest rooted doubts about herself.
Adobe Kroger - Dame Commander is intended for mature readers.

Book the Third: Mythics
Written by Matt Trinh, art by Beth Varni
In a world in which unauthorized use of Magic is practically a capital crime, what can a brilliant young magically inclined woman do when charged with dealing with paranormal entities that plague the mundane world? She must rely on her wits, her encyclopedic knowledge, her resourcefulness, and her ever present and faithful familiar. Join Elthia Fletcher as she attempts to maintain the balance between our world and the ever shifting threat of the supernatural!
Mythics is intended for mature readers.

We, the creators of this shared universe, are committed to delivering the most high quality product possible; as devoted fans of the medium we work in, we will settle for providing nothing less than what we ourselves would expect to trade for our hard earned money. To that end we pledge to deliver engaging stories in a timely manner with top shelf artwork from exceptionally talented and skilled professional illustrators. To do so, we must take care of our respective creative teams and see to it that the time they need to bring this universe to striking, vibrant life is well spent.
All proceeds from this campaign's initial funding goal will go directly to paying our creative teams of pencillers, letterers and colorists for their production costs. Anything further will be spent to both improve the quality and value of this initial offering as well as further offerings in this universe, be they with these three initial properties or future ones!
That's right - we have huge plans for this world, and this is your chance to get in on the ground floor of a truly exciting creative enterprise! You won't want to miss it!
We are grateful for every dollar that is pledged, as every dollar brings us closer to making this world a reality. This is why we will take the time to offer a personalized thank you for a pledge of $1.

Risks and challenges
Between the three of us, we've backed dozens of crowdfunded books. While the majority of our experiences have been positive, no one understands better than us what you are doing when you back a campaign. You are not buying a book, you are speculating in the brand. As such, the unfortunate reality is that there is always the risk that what you have invested in will fail to be delivered.
Being huge supporters and advocates of creator owned works in general, we understand the importance of trust. This is indeed our first campaign, and we have yet to gain the trust that other creators have worked so hard to earn. What we can say is that as strident supporters of independent creators of all kinds, we will do all in our power to bolster the goodwill between independent creators and those who believe in them enough to let their hard earned money do the talking. This project is not a cynical cash grab, but the product of a sizable team of dedicated creative individuals with a profound respect for the medium of comics and for storytelling in general. Back our campaign and you will get what we promise you, in a timely manner, because this is our 5-9 that our 9-5 pays for. You will get all of the energy and love we can put into this campaign and the brand moving forward.
All of that being said, this is a very ambitious project, the likes of which is rarely if ever seen in our corner of the indie comics sphere. We have three separate creative teams working in concert to bring these three books to life simultaneously, and that is only a little challenging logistically. We have been hard at work for months coordinating schedules, ideas, and output to turn this into a well oiled machine. We have confidence now that we'll be more than capable of bringing this over the goal line, and we promise full transparency over the course of the campaign and afterward as we complete production. Expect regular detailed updates as we progress, with full disclosure on any difficulties.
We regret that at this time that we can only fulfill physical rewards to the United States.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
