We're off to the races and are hammering out the first stages of the project. So far, so good! We will have some 'behind the scenes' material soon. For those of you who don't want to miss out on anything, please sign up to the newsletter here:

As you've probably noticed, we've partnered with a company called Backerkit to help manage our orders. You can use them to upgrade your order as well. If you'd like to add an extra copy of the book, a copy of Tales of the Punic Wars, or our Hannibal t-shirt, just visit this link:

(Speaking of t-shirts, we'll be shipping them out early before Christmas of this year.)

Thanks, everyone!

Enjoy your summer!

In Search of Hannibal has been successfully funded!


For backers only. If you're a backer of this project, please log in to read this post.

The Homestretch. Let's #MakeCarthageGreatAgain.


It was down to the wire, but, we hit our goal and we'll have our printed edition of Tales of the Punic Wars available for sale right after the campaign is over. Of course, everyone will get the digital version for free, but, if you're like me nothing beats new book smell. All backers will get a notification once our campaign is finished (so keep your eyes peeled!) where you can add it to your pledge.

It's crunch time, so if you were ever going to tell a friend about this project do it now!

Oh, and while I have your attention, someone please get #MakeCarthageGreatAgain trending on Twitter with a link to the Kickstarter.  

I think that would be hilarious.  

Thanks, everyone!

Reddit AMA & Tales of the Punic Wars print edition



Have any questions you want to throw at us? On Saturday, June 11, 3pm BST the writer and illustrator will be doing a Reddit Ask Me Anything. Come pop by and say hi. Here's the link:

Stretch Goal Update!

Once we unlock our next stretch goal, we've decided to gather all the Tales of the Punic Wars into a collected printed volume. Every backer will still get the digital version of all the Tales of the Punic Wars for free, but we will also have the print edition available as an option once we hit the goal. It will be the same format, full colour, hardcover, and approx. 52 pages.

Thanks again for all of your support!

Stretch goal achieved! Story 3 of Tales of the Punic Wars unlocked!


You did it! We have 3 stories finished now in our Tales of the Punic Wars collection. If we keep going we may just have enough for another book ;) hint hint hint.

Some news:

We will be teaming up with the folks at BackerKit to help streamline our project so we can focus on working, and have some help dealing with logistics. We want to be a well-oiled machine, and this will definitely help. So, post campaign, if you see an update from us with the Backerkit logo, don't worry, they're on our side.

We launched:
