Creature Academy is an all-ages steampunk fantasy graphic novel by Kevin Konrad Hanna (Clockwork Girl), Dave Fagan, Erich Owen (Logan’s Run, I, Robot) and Grant Bond (Clockwork Girl, Tron, Igor).
We’re appealing to Kickstarter’s comics fans to make Creature Academy a reality. Your support for $30 gets you a signed hardcover edition and signed poster. Higher support get you gorgeous original art from Kevin Konrad Hanna, Grant Bond, or a chance to be in a Creature Academy crowd scene—with your likeness shown “standing in awe” or “fleeing in terror”.
Creature Academy honors and subverts the tropes we expect in coming-of-age fantasy and super-hero stories. The young hero is no “Chosen One”, and the mentors he finds may not be wise or good at all. We’re excited to share this unique story for the first time.
We’re offering Creature Academy: The Legacy only to Kickstarter backers and only for a limited time.
