What happens when your family has this otherworldly draw to the world of the supernatural? Something pulls the world of monsters and demons to you, and you to them. Throughout history monsters and demons have haunted every aspect of your family lineage, murdering, kidnapping, converting, even falling in love. 

How did this start? Will it ever end?

Come dive into the world of the Eynes, a family that throughout history has had interactions of all kinds with monsters and demons. 

Book one opens up the world and tells you 10 stories told by various authors and artists from different spots on the Eynes family tree throughout history! This is more than an anthology, this is not just a collection of stories around a central theme. This is a collection of stories that tell you a larger narrative. The stories intertwine together and weave throughout history. 

What are we making?

A square bound graphic novel containing 64 pages of beautiful colored pages by some amazing creators from around the world

Brought to you by creators who have worked for DC, Image, IDW, Dark Horse, and countless independent publishers from around the world!

Representing the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Nigeria, The Philippines, Spain, and Argentina!

Rewards




A note on shipping:

I've done my best guess on shipping for this book, however I may have over stated international shipping and if so I will refund back to any buyer the portion of shipping and packaging if I overcharged. This is my first time offering a book internationally so I'm hoping I did it right. If I under estimated then I will just eat the costs.
