Hi, fans, followers, and newcomers!

I want to thank everyone including the hardcore fans, the team, the Eisner committee, and Webtoons for supporting me on my adventure bringing you all my book, Brothers Bond. Over 3 years ago, I came up with this story and it has been a mind-blowing journey since. Kevin was an amazing addition to make it even better. The Brothers Bond story is about the journey of the haves and have-nots, told through the eyes of a young man going through the coming of age period we all eventually go through at some point in our lives. With a spin of adventure and comedy, the main character Yoshi is on a mission with his two blind samurai protectors to fix his past mistakes and restore the land to what his people and ancestors once cherished. Of Course, any adventure with two blind samurais is always super cool! When I started this series, it was originally meant to be in print. Now I am bringing it to you as it was originally meant to be in full color and spectacular splash pages. Along with the book, there will be multiple goodies, add-ons and stretch goals which includes a chance to get your likeness in the book as one of the good warriors who will help Yoshi complete his tasks. You will have swords and armor while fighting bandits, demons and others. Take a look at the tiers to see. We will be constantly updating the campaign so don’t hesitate to contact us. This adventure is only beginning. Season#2 is already cooking and I can't wait till you see that! Welcome to the world of Brothers Bond.

- Ryan


ABOUT BROTHERS BOND: Brothers Bond is a 2018 Eisner Award-nominated webcomic on LINE Webtoon currently with one season.  This is your chance to be the first to get your hands on the reformatted print edition of season 1, which collects all 26 chapters of Brothers Bond - approximately 100 pages of content - complete with behind the scenes designs, roughs, and interviews with the creator!

The goal of the Kickstarter is to get the comic reformatted for print and into your hands as quickly as possible! We'll be designing Kickstarter exclusive covers and the more we raise the more content goes in the book, the more stretch goals are unlocked, and the more add ons we can offer. The stretch goals and add ons are a secret until they've been hit. We'll reveal the stretch goal that's available to hit next, and when it unlocks we'll reveal the next one. Ditto with the add ons and we think everyone will be pleasantly surprised with each!

So, what am I getting for my pledge? First, all backers at the $24 Kickstarter Edition level will get the collected edition, printed at 10.197"x 8.197" with a matte lamination with gloss spot varnish cover, exclusive to this campaign. Each page of the comic will be carefully reformatted to provide the same quality of reading experience many of you have already had online.

Risks and challenges

There is little risk in that this book is being published and the art has been completed. The team running the Kickstarter have worked with the vendors and printers before and have confidence in the quality and timeline we've outlined. However, during production mistakes can happen and some of the vendors are overseas. Should something not arrive in time or as expected we will quickly communicate that to all backers and let everyone know when to expect items should dates shift.
