A High Seas Pirate adventure, A Deadly Tomb, Curses, Monsters, Magic, and a Mysterious Fox right in the thick of it.
What are we Kickstarting?
We’re collecting the entire second season of Tenko King into a brand new 128 page full color graphic novel, Tenko King Volume 2: Heart of the Mountain. Tenko King is currently free to read online, but now it’s time to collect those pages into a beautiful real life book. Crammed with bonus content -- never before seen pages, cryptic clues, and world building sketches.
What is Tenko King?
Tenko King is an ongoing, online, all ages fantasy adventure comic created by Tavis Maiden. Tenko King Volume 2: Heart of the Mountain follows the story of Flip and Kuma, two haphazard adventurers stumbling their way through a land filled with treasure and trouble.
Flip is a young adventurer from the lost Redori tribe. Kuma is an exiled thief from an Underwater Kingdom. Together these unlikely traveling companions have escaped the golden grip of the Hohlraum Halls, and have fallen into the hands of pirates along the Tinten Drift.
The Harvest Festival has ended, but for the good folk of Port Town trouble is right around the corner. A mysterious fox has been spotted robbing food carts and the Rumble Bees swarm the streets brazenly stealing anything that’s not nailed down.
Traveling wherever the winds of adventure carry them, from the high seas to the deepest dungeons, Flip and Kuma encounter wild creatures, and grotesque monsters. When Flip is struck by a magic curse, he and Kuma must hunt down a cure before it’s too late.

What about extras? Tell me about Add Ons!
Choose your own add-ons, mix and match to make it your way.
All you have to do is pick the reward tier you'd like, then add the amount for any of the extra items you'd like to "add-on" to your pledge. Once the campaign is over, we'll send out Surveys to ask you which add-on items you wanted.
The last two campaigns used stretch goals to determine the extras that backers would receive. Stretch goals are fun! But they're only based on how much a campaign earns.
Backer Quests are not only based on how much this campaign raises, but on social media goals and Backer interactivity.
Each Completed Quest unlocks an award. ("100% funding"? Award unlocked!) Let’s unlock 'em all!
100% - Book funded! We did it! Library Quest - Unlocked
200% - Exclusive signed art print for all physical reward tiers
300% - New KS Exclusive Kuma Coin included in all physical reward tiers
After the first Kickstarter we donated a few books to our son’s school library. We’d like to do that again, but bigger! So for every 75 backers we are donating a copy of Tenko King Volume 2 to a randomly chosen public or school library.
Use the hashtag #TenkoKingQuest in your tweets, instagram, or facebook to post Tenko King photos, fanart, or just to tell us what you love about the comic!

Risks and challenges
There are always risks when publishing books and manufacturing products. Everything from paper and fabric shortages to coastal pirates... yes, pirates.
We've had successfully funded and fulfilled Kickstarters in the past and are dedicated to making sure production and distribution goes as smoothly as possible. Tavis and Megan are no strangers to packing Kickstarter packages and we're ready to get back at it again.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
