Hex: a magic spell; a curse.

Sometimes, things don't work out.

Sometimes, you wonder what exactly it is you've done to wind up in the trouble you're in.

Sometimes, it feels like you're cursed.

Taking place in the same universe (The Hexiverse) these four diverse stories will unnerve and disorientate you.

They are tales that happen to the everyday people, your neighbours or your family, perhaps even your best friend, and you'd never even know.

When Brendan was a boy, he was diagnosed with a terminal illness. That is, until a strange man gave him a pebble, and told him not to lose it.

Since then, he's kept it safe, but that hasn't stopped the ghost of who he once was from getting closer. When he moves back into a house he visited when he was younger, the drawings start again.

The drawings of the boy.

And he's always getting closer.

Ben has suffered from nightmares all of is life, filled with strange corridors, and even stranger monsters within, able to take corporeal form by stealing a lock of his hair.

The Hexiverse

Look up, look out.

Familiar, right? Normal, right?

Same stuff, different day? Almost.

Everyone has a story. Everyone has experienced something they dare not repeat, something unexplained, something inexplicable.

But we bury it, and pretend it didn't happen.

Guess what? That's the Hexiverse. And you're in the middle of it.

Why Kickstarter?

We're running 'Hexes: Volume One' Kickstarter campaign to help raise the funds to print the graphic novel.

Using Kickstarter, we're able to reward our backers by offering Kickstarter exclusive rewards, as well as the guarantee you'll be receiving the book first!

'Hexes: Volume One' is 100% complete and, bar the backers names being put into the book, ready to go to print.

Kickstarter is a fantastic site, which helps us reach as many people as possible, and we're always delighted to hear the great feedback we receive from our fans.

Ege has been drawing stuff since he was just a little lad, especially endless countryside views with lampposts following them.

He decided to convey his ideas trough comic books when he was a high school junior. Then, he found himself as a comic artist.

Nowadays, he is drawing 'The Boy Who Came Closer' and 'Robyn' for Blue Fox Comics. In what is left from his time, he is working on his personal graphic novel.

Emiliano Correa - Artist

I have this dream of being a comic artist since I read my first comic when I was a kid. After many years of doing other things I finally had the chance to make a living of what I do love; COMICS.

It's not an easy task here in Argentina, but I've been working hard since then and here you have me, some titles published and a lot of experience; I even have my own title called "Suinda" http://headshrinkerspress.com/product/suinda-print/ thanks to my friend Travis Huber and the Headshrinker's Press crew.

Blue Fox Comics Guarantee

We really appreciate everything our backers do for us, and want to make sure that they feel supported.

Add-On Menu

 

Timeline

The 'Hexes: Volume One' campaign runs mid-October to mid-November. We will then send out surveys in late November, print the book and create the merchandise in early December, before sending the books out to the backers in January.

We have contingency built into this model, to cater for any unforeseen delays.

Thank You

Thank you so much for taking the time to look at our campaign. If you've got this far, then we hope you've found it interesting.

'Hexes: Volume One' will unnerve you, excite you, and maybe, just maybe, make you look at the world in a different way.

We hope you join us in the Hexiverse!

 

Risks and challenges

Since 2015, Blue Fox Comics have directly run eleven successful comic book Kickstarters, and have helped two other projects get funded.

We have a very good understanding of exactly what it takes, not only to run a Kickstarter campaign, but to successfully deliver on the rewards.

'Hexes: Volume One' is complete, with the only outstanding tasks being to add backers names to the back of the book.

As soon as that task is complete, we can send the book to the printers.

Should any issues arise, we will let you know immediately, along with any action we need to take.

Feel free to look at our previous Kickstarter campaigns for evidence of our ability to successfully communicate with our backers post-campaign.

Thank you.
