An important day for the Mythoverse as it was the last day of our ambitious inaugural Kickstarter. We were doing 3 comics at once, with a goal of $6k that seemed like an impenetrable mountain for a first campaign. Many first timers would reach half the goal by the end of the month.
In the end we hit our goal, and then some.
Because of that accomplishment and seeing how much the Mythoverse has grown in nearly three years after the campaign, May 25th will be known as Mythoverse Day where we’ll have some fun announcements, updates, and new projects launch.
This year’s Mythoverse Day announcement will be a big one, so mark your calenders! -Matt
What is Mythoverse comics? We’re so glad you asked.
Mythoverse comics is the brand designation for the Mythoverse, a creator owned independent shared comic universe founded by Dan Sacharow, Brett McGowan, and Matt Trinh. Heavily steeped in western folklore, mythology, and tradition, the three initial launch titles, Adobe Kroger: Dame Commander, Changeling: an Urban Fairytale, and Mythics, re-imagine timeless tales and creatures in a contemporary urban fantasy setting.
Magic is real, but its use is forbidden and strictly regulated by an ancient order of holy knights. Fae creatures, supernatural beings, and underground practitioners of magic struggle to survive and live free in a world which views their very existence as a threat. All the while ancient evils lurk on the very outskirts of our reality, eager and hungry to return to the world from which they were banished.
Three factions vie for both survival and dominance in this uncertain world.
First, there is The Order of the Carolingian Cross, an globe spanning organization of Holy Knights formed in 800 AD by the Holy Roman emperor Charlemagne. The Order was formed to provide humanity with the means to combat the rampant depredations of eldritch horrors.
Next, there are the Mythics, the secretive order of Magic users formed at the dawn of recorded time. The Mythics derive their power from a bond formed with their familiar, or a spirit who builds a strong affinity with their paired human.
Lastly, there is the Fae. These timeless magical creatures live apart from humanity and see them as largely beneath their notice.
