Arthurian Legends on Kickstarter

Writing team Frosty Ogre hope to raise $10,000 on Kickstarter to cover the production costs of the first volume in their graphic novel series, 13 Legends. Above, we’ve embedded a video about the project–what do you think?

13 Legends features a re-imagining of the classic King Arthur legends set in an alternate universe. Once the project is completed, the team plans to seek publication in 2013. Kickstarter supporters will receive an exclusive edition of the first volume.

Here’s more about the project: “Volume One follows the exploits of two redcoats, Arthur and Lancelot, as they fight the armies of the Venetian Republic for control of the New World. The two soldiers embark on a life-or-death mission to prevent the outright defeat of the English, and move ever closer toward their destinies, and to uncovering powers greater than the massive empires that carve up the globe.”

Welcome to our Kickstarter Publishing Project of the Week, a feature exploring how authors and publishers are using the fundraising site to raise money for book projects. If you want to start your own project, check out How To Use Kickstarter to Fund Your Publishing Project.
