We've surpassed our target, and are now into stretch goals! We've got five currently planned, and more to come should we reach them!
We'll reveal the images of each when we reach them.
Next Stretch Goal £4100 - Robyn Bookplate by Ege Avci
Previous Stretch Goals
What is Robyn?
Robyn is ongoing comic series about a young, intelligent and skillful girl called Robyn, who just happens to be an outlaw, surviving on her own in Sherwood Forest!
That is, until she runs an errand for the dubious Tuck, which leads her into her greatest adventure yet; one that she cannot complete alone.
Tell me more!
Robyn is quick and confident, but perhaps a little too confident. As she completes the errand for Tuck, she overhears tales of a monster in Blarry Crags, and decides it's something she should investigate.
What she finds, however, is nothing she could be prepared for!
Issue 1, 'Grasping the Nettle', is part one in an initial four arc story called 'No One Above Another'.
Each issue is 28 pages of full colour, including cover.
Am I going to like it?
No, you're going to love it!
In fact, anyone who loves good stories, great art, action, adventure, fun, strong female leads, Robin Hood mythos, etc, will love this book!
And this is just the start of the story! Issues 1 to 4 are written, with the next 5 to 8 in the planning stage!
Are there more familiar faces?
You bet! In issue 1 we meet Robyn and Tuck, and a character named Will, though not the one you might be thinking of!
In upcoming issues we'll meet more characters, reinvented in surprising ways. But that's not all, we'll also meet other characters you may have heard of, but not in a Robin Hood story...
Okay, so what do we get?
I'm so glad you asked.
Each issue of Robyn is a 28 page, full colour comic, printed on high quality paper. On the inside back cover is a special section titled Merry Marauders, where backers of £20 and higher will have their name printed.
As well as a standard PDF of the comic, we also have a deluxe PDF which includes the original comic script.
If you'd like your comic signed by the author, back at one of the £15 or greater tiers.
At higher levels, there is great additional merch including coasters, enamel pins, Rachael Smith's A5 print, and beautiful Kickstarter exclusive, laser-cut arrowheads and Robyn Capes!
At £45 you get the chance to grab yourself a Robyn T-Shirt, in forest green, of course!
Finally, at the highest level, you get to be part of the Robyn story, by having your likeness in a future issue!
Hoodie & T-Shirts
As well as the rewards including t-shirts and hoodies, we also have them available as add-ons!
T-shirt Add-on - £15 each
Hoodie Add-on - £25 each

Tell me about the Robyn creative team
Robyn is written by award winning author Simon Birks, cover and sequential art is by Ege Avci, and lettering by Lyndon White.
The team have worked together before on the popular 'Hexes: The Boy Who Came Closer' horror comic.
Rachael Smith - A5 Print Artist
Rachael Smith’s debut graphic novel House Party came out in 2014 with Great Beast Comics to critical acclaim. The Rabbit, released by Avery Hill Publishing in 2015, is her second graphic novel and was nominated for Best Book in the British Comic Awards 2014/15. Rachael is also the creator of Flimsy the Kitten and One Good Thing. She currently works with Titan Comics on her monthly strip for the Doctor Who comic series, and is working on her new webcomic, Bess, which launched November 2015. She lives in Hebden Bridge, in Yorkshire, in the UK.
What's the money being raised for?
The majority of the money will cover the printing costs, with the rest going to rewards production, postage and Kickstarter fees.
Before any of our comics get to the Kickstarter phase, we make sure all the art is complete, so you don't have as long to wait!
We know you're going to enjoy Robyn.
Risks and challenges
Robyn #1 is complete, and this Kickstarter is to raise funds for printing, so, in a way, you're just pre-ordering the comic.
Having already successfully run seven Kickstarter campaigns, and printed eight independent comics, I have the printers and merchandise suppliers in hand, and know they can deliver the quality you'll want.
So, risks are truly minimal! Of course, if any setbacks occur, we'll let you know immediately, and make alternative plans quickly and efficiently.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
