About

Twin Dragons is an all ages slice-of-life comedy comic about two dragon twins and their friends. Help me print the first book of their adventures!

The story

It’s now 16 years since the first hybrid was born. A human with animalistic traits. Since then, about one in ten babies get born looking like animals. They call these people hybrids. Kai and Kaya are two dragon twins, and they will soon move to hybrid city, where they will meet other hybrids.

The story follows Kai and Kaya as they move to the city with their parents, discover their new home and make new friends. Follow along as they meet their neighbors, go on a stealth mission, take on a foolish challenge and even play some Catacombs & Drakes with their new friends!

The book includes the first 6 chapters of the ongoing webcomic Twin Dragons, which updates every Monday. If you want to try before you buy, click here and read it FREE!


The book

This kickstarter is to fund the printing of the first volume of Twin Dragons into a full color perfect bound comic with 200 pages! With 158 pages of comic, new chapter art and bonus content never seen before, including an 8 page bonus comic, this book will please any fan of the series!

The following is a test print of the book. The cover art WILL change in the final version:

In addition to the book, backers can get digital editions, special and limited edition merchandise and even art rewards on various tiers!


Rewards

As is customary, a kickstarter cannot proceed without some good reward tiers! Here is what you can hoard from this kickstarter:

Name in the book

Every backer will be mentioned in the book by name! (Name or nickname, as you please)

Digital Twin Dragons PDF

Get a high resolution pdf file of the entire book, extra’s included, of course.

Twin Dragons volume 1

This is what you’re here for. The printed collection of the first 6 chapters of the comic, complete with extra art and a mini comic exclusive to the book! The mini comic will star Kai and Kaya when they were little.

A personalized bookplate

You can have your book outfitted with a bookplate, on which I will sign and draw you a sketch of any one character of the comic! Ideal to get a nice sketch of your favourite character in your copy.

Collectible cards

These will be two different cards. One will be of Kai, the other of Kaya. These cards are limited editions and will be limited to 100 copies each, so make sure to get them while you can.

Prints

There are three different print designs to choose from! Get just one or all three of these limited edition prints. These are limited to 50 each, so once again, get the while you can.

Acrylic charms

Ever wanted a mini Kai and/or Kaya dangling on your keys or phone? Now you can! These cute little acrylic charm dragons will hold on to anything you strap them to! Because they’re dragons. They hoard. Well, you get the joke :p

Acrylic standee

The same thing as an acrylic charm, but bigger, and you’re able to make it stand up!

Comic commissions

Get either a one page or several pages of comic commissions from me. I will work with you to make your idea come to life just like the webcomic! Want your character to meet Kaya? Now you can! Note that these comics will be non-canon to the story and I hold the right to refuse an idea if it really doesn’t fit the established characters of the comic. You are not obliged to use any comic characters, however. Strictly NO NSFW content!

Some of the rewards aren't completed yet, but here are the design sketches:

Stretch Goals!

Here we are, we met our goal! But like any dragon, we need to increase our hoard. Why stop now when we can get MORE, right? Let's combine our efforts once more and unlock new stuff!

€5500

New collectible card unlocked: Benji!

Every physical tier will get an upgrade! One collectible card will be added to all tiers. Everyone above the Pot o' Gold tier will receive three cards: Kai, Kaya and Benji. Gold Coin and Bag of Gold tiers will get ONE card of their choice.

€6000

New collectible card unlocked: Cleo!

Same as above, but there are TWO extra cards now!

€6500

New collectible card unlocked: Rex!

The main cast is now complete! Same as above, but now there are THREE extra cards!

€8000

Twin Dragons world guide!

When we reach this goal, I will make a digital guide about the Twin Dragons world with info about what went into world building. More info about the characters, background information, locations in the story and Hybrid City. This reward will be available in PDF format to ALL backers.

Please keep in mind that I can not guarantee this reward to be finished by the original estimated delivery time. This will NOT delay the other rewards, as this one will be delivered digitally.

€10000

Jesse's Adventure! + Special edition 'Howling Rex card'

When we reach this goal, I will revisit the Jesse's Adventure comic that has been used as a voting incentive for TopWebComics, and turn it into a proper comic! I will keep the story and tweak and rewrite the script to make it fit a proper comic format, while keeping the story the same. It will be an expansion on the current format and it will be available to ALL backers in digital format. It will be the first chapter that will be redone this way. I'm expecting at least a 30 page comic out of this.

There will also be a special card: Howling Rex. (For brand new backers: This is basically a joke that originated from the comic. You will see where it comes from if you read chapter 7 of my webcomic.)

Please keep in mind that I can not guarantee this reward to be finished by the original estimated delivery time. This will NOT delay the other rewards, as this one will be delivered digitally.

Risks and challenges

The comic is already done, the files are ready to go and while some of the rewards are still being worked on, those will be ready to go within the week.

The biggest risk with this kickstarter would be that it is my first one. A lot of this is completely new to me, but I’ve figured it out so far. I will make it to the end as well :D

I will be helped for the fulfilment of the kickstarter by the professional people over at Shippingnerds, so I won’t be doing this alone. The books are being printed by Mixam, who delivered a product of staggering quality in the printing tests that I did.

As long as the project gets funded, I will see it through till the end :D
Thank you very much!
