You can read Wild Hunt Comic here!
Monsters are real. They lurk in the dark, but there's an ancient force that even they fear. She works at the local coffee shop.
The Wild Hunt is a webcomic that mixes myth with the mundane. Holly is a Bay City pre-med student who suffers a near-fatal cycling accident that lands her in a coma. A spiritual entity known as "The Hunt" offers her a chance to return to life in exchange for her aid pursuing its agenda in the mortal world. Holly will take on the mantle of the Wild Hunt and become an emissary to the mythological figures who stalk the shadows. She will protect the citizens of Bay City at night, and still have to wake up early to make their coffee.
It's a story about finding your place in an uncaring world - about balancing what’s important to you with what’s required of you.
The goal of this Kickstarter campaign is to produce a print edition of the first storyline of the Wild Hunt webcomic. The final product will be 130 pages and collect the first five chapters of the comic (all of which are currently online). This way you can have a high-quality version of the comic that can be held in your hands and can live on a shelf. The success of this Kickstarter may help fund the comic going into future story arcs.
The print edition will also debut a completely redrawn first chapter by Dima (the current ongoing artist). We’ve also cleaned up the art and the page layouts, so the Wild Hunt Volume 1 will be the definitive version of the first five chapters..
So, to summarize, the print version of Volume 1 will be:
- 130 Page Softcover Book
- Chapter 1 is redrawn by Dima
- Touched up interior art
- Brand new cover art
- Kickstarter-exclusive content (to be announced as the campaign progresses)
- Backer names listed at the end of the book
I have potential stretch goals in mind that will be shared once we clear the initial funding goal. I’m also going to add details to this edition that will be unique to the Kickstarter printing. Future printings will not have these details, so this will be something that proves you got in on this thing before it was cool. Also, obviously, I’ll list the backers in the end pages of the book (both digital and print).
The first print run of the book will be unique to the kickstarter. It’s going to have exclusive content that will not be available in future printings, so back now and make your friends envious of all those sweet sweet bonus pages. I also have potential stretch goals in mind that will be shared once we clear the initial funding goal!
Risks and challenges
This is my first Kickstarter, so bumps in the road are inevitable. But I've spent the last few years doing my homework on the subject. So hopefully those bumps will be minimal.
The art for this print edition is already produced and paid for. The InDesign file for the book is completed and the printing and shipping costs have all been estimated.
Now all that remains is to pay the printer and deliver the files. So the biggest risk I anticipate is that this all takes longer to complete than originally expected.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
