About

A war as old as time, where fate itself hangs in the balance.

In the Vikingverse,  the Norse rule the stars with restless fleets and an iron will. But  when the thralls rebel, turning to the artifice of Norns to help them  escape their bondage, the Natural order is thrown into chaos.

The Jötunn War has been fought across the Nine Homeworlds to  contain the threat, a battle against the stuff of ancient nightmares,  red in tooth and claw. Jötunheim is the rebellion’s last redoubt, an  indignity the Empire planned to cleanse with flame and fury.

But now Emperor Dietbald is dead, his army annihilated at Vimur  River. As the last desperate survivors rally on the planet below, the  Norse fleet prepares to rain vengeance on their eternal foe.

The Jötunn War. Go Big or Go Home in a body bag.

The Vikingverse is the alternate universe that results when  Odin escapes his doom at Ragnarok, a parallel timeline where Vikings  rule seas and stars, and the storied heroes of mankind emerge in new and  brutal guises drawn from the sagas.

Hang on tightly, ’cause the Free World just got thrown to the wolves and the meek shan’t inherit this Earth.

Hello there! My name is Ian Stuart Sharpe, the creator of The Jötunn War.

The Jötunn War is a FOUR ISSUE graphic novel that takes place in the worlds of the Vikingverse and is a follow-up to my novel, The All Father Paradox.

We brought it to Kickstarter and successfully funded and delivered the first issue earlier this year. We're now bringing it back to help fund the printing of issue two and the production of issue three.

The second issue itself is COMPLETE. It's a 22 page comic that is completely finished! It's been fully written, edited, penciled, inked, colored, and lettered. And it's gorgeous. If you liked issue one, you'll absolutely love issue two!

CREATOR & WRITER - IAN STUART SHARPE was born in  London, UK, and now lives in British Columbia,  Canada. Having worked  for the BBC, IMG, Atari and Electronic Arts, he is  now CEO of a tech  start up. As a child he discovered his love of books,  sci-fi and sagas:  devouring the works of Douglas Adams, J.R.R. Tolkien,  Terry Pratchett  and George MacDonald Fraser alongside Snorri Sturluson  and Sigvat the  Skald. He once won a prize at school for Outstanding  Progress and chose  a dictionary as his reward, secretly wishing it had  been an Old Norse  phrasebook. The All Father Paradox is his first novel. See  www.vikingverse.com for more details.

ILLUSTRATOR - DEVMALYA PRAMANIK is a 27 year old  comic book artist and illustrator living in Bangalore, India. He's been  in love with comics for as long as he can remember. He has worked on Paradiso from Image comics most recently, and other publishers in the past, most notably BOOM! Studios.

COLORIST - PAUL LITTLE is a colorist whose work has  appeared in comics from Dark Horse, Image, IDW, Joe Books, BOOM!  Studios, among many other publishers. He colored the back half of the  Eisner Award-nominated Morning Glories from Image Comics, and he has also contributed colors to a number of anthologies.

LETTERER - ED DUKESHIRE is a graphic artist and  Harvey nominated comic book letterer who has worked in the biz since  2001. He has lettered titles  from mainstream to creator-owned favorites  like Hulk, X-Men, Buffy the  Vampire Slayer, and Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. He also owns and  operates the Digital Webbing website, a gathering place for comic creators.

EDITOR - ALANA JOLI ABBOTT has been an editor for  eighteen years, working on a variety  of projects including biographies,  news articles, reference books, role  playing games, and fiction. At  Outland, she has served as co-editor to  anthologies, including Kaiju Rising II: Reign of Monsters. She has also written for the comics including Cowboys and Aliens II and Ithaca.

ART DIRECTION & PUBLISHER - OUTLAND ENTERTAINMENT is a publisher, located  in Kansas City, Missouri, with a focus in fiction,  comics, original graphic  novels, and games. Beginning in 2008 as a  creative services house, we’ve  since worked with clients all over the  United States and the world to  bring their ideas, concepts, and  projects to life through illustration,  design, and narrative  storytelling.

In 2014, we decided to take all our years of experience developing   projects for clients and plunged into publishing our own books and   games. We have a deep passion for trans-media, so the majority of our   projects are planned to be released in different media, comics, graphic   novels, games, and fiction as well.

In 2017, Outland Entertainment acquired Ragnarok Publications and brought an incredible library of intellectual property, anthologies, and a distribution deal through Independent Publishers Group (IPG) into the fold. See www.outlandentertainment.com for more.

Risks and challenges

Common risks and challenges include poor production planning and unaccounted for shipping headaches. In this case, the production on the book is complete. All art is done and turned in. Lettering is final. And all design is finished. The book is DONE.

The only place where we may run into issues with is printing and fulfillment, as you can never account for printing or shipping delays. Fortunately, we have a reliable printer that we've worked with before. Our printer also offers fulfillment, which again, we've used before. So while it's possible there could be a hiccup with fulfillment, we anticipate that everything will go smoothly.

And in the event that it doesn't, we'll keep you updated. We will commit to bi-weekly updates on the project and we will make sure that you know everything we know.
