Fantasy Graphic Novel ‘Grinidon’ Needs Your Help!April 3, 2015
Drama, suspense, romance and war — Grinidon has a little bit of everything when it comes to an epic fantasy tale and they need your help on their Kickstarter.
With a little over a week to go, the creative team for Grinidon is looking to raise $7,000 to complete the first volume of their comic. The first issue of the comic that will eventually make up the volume has already been completed and is available on Amazon, iTunes and Big Cartel for purchase, or you can get the comic through one of their many tiers for donating to their current project. Here’s what Grinidon is all about:
The story begins in the land of Calaway, a large island settled by humans nearly a half-century ago. The series begins in the city of Carnasus, the capital of the southern kingdom, where its people prepare for an attack from the north. The kingdoms’ feud dates back to the old land, and after twenty years of war, Carnasus prepares for what may be its end.
The council has sent word for those loyal to the realm to aid them, but they know this is a battle that they cannot hope to win. The northern army is impossibly large and their king has taken steps to ensure victory. All appears lost until a figure from Carnasus’ past reemerges – but the slim hope he offers comes with great risk, for he knows a dark secret that must never be told. The council must decide if they will place their lives into the hands of those they cannot trust, or risk annihilation and leave their end to fate.
So what will be the fate of the kingdom? Will a hero rise up to push back the invading forces or will they ultimately succumb to their fate?
Grinidon offers everything that someone may be looking for in a fantasy graphic novel; a well-told and well-rounded story, detailed and colorful artwork and characters that readers care about.
