The Red Queen of Oz Graphic Novel Featured on Kickstarter

Writer Bryan Wiegele and illustrator Simon Rosati hope to raise $2,750 on Kickstarter to fund the production and self-publishing costs for The Red Queen of Oz.

They hope to release the graphic novel in February 2013. This book features a story that brings together Alice from Alice in Wonderland and Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz. We’ve embedded a video about the project above–what do you think?

Here’s more about the project: “It’s the tale of two young girls, both with extraordinary experiences of their own, who must set aside petty differences to stop the diabolical Red Queen of Hearts from her destructive rampage that has already ruined Wonderland and now threatens Oz. This is a completely original story based on characters and events from the original books, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through The Looking-Glass written by Lewis Carroll, and The Wonderful Wizard of Oz written by L. Frank Baum. Both are safely in the realm of public domain.”

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.
