Kickstart the MAELSTROM Graphic Novel

Here we are, midway through our Specimen13 related graphic novel Kickstarter campaign. From this end, it’s a LOT of work, but getting so much positive feedback really makes up for it.


As announced on the KICKSTARTER PAGE, the series will be done in English and French simultaneously, so it means I will have to go the extra mile to blog in French also. I’ll be discussing it with Web Meister Master Jeff Duke Jr. to set up the smoothest navigation controls. Heck, it might just mean alternating languages on the same blog post. Ha!

Note that the serialization of the graphic novel will start right here on this site. This way, it will be easier to make the connection with Specimen13 music by adding it as a soundtrack to the comic. 

Now, here’s one of the perks for contributing for the campaign. Thanks to video, here’s the best description of what I had in mind for the SKETCHBOOK BOX SET reward (#9 on the Kickstarter page).
It’s outside is all hand finished with a hand painted lid. The interior is finished in black felt and holds a sketchbook with great drawing paper.

So, here’s what I want to do. Each day, I will draw a colour sketch on each of the right hand pages (drawing on the left hand pages won’t make the image on the other side look good) and then share them with you, each day on our social media pages like Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter (@DenisRodier).

This set will be only offered in three copies and each will have different illustrations. Limited offer you say?

More news very soon, but in the meantime, don’t hesitate to comment and tell me what you think!

Thanks again for spreading the word, your help is greatly appreciated.
