Fans of Lord of the Rings and The Chronicles of Narnia—your time is here! The new graphic novel Phantastes by Cave Publishing blends gorgeous art and storytelling you won’t want to miss. Place your order for it now on Kickstarter, but do it soon—because the campaign is running for 18 days only.
The story of Phantastes is centered around a young man, Anodos, who is pulled into the dreamlike world of fairyland on the edge of his 21st birthday. As he wanders strange landscapes, hunting for his ideal of female beauty, he encounters a number of otherworldly personalities who tempt him, prod him, and lead him to deciding what is truly important in life.
With storytelling based on George MacDonald’s tale crafted by Meredith Finch (Zenescope, DC Comics, Image Comics) and otherworldly art by Christine Norrie and Andrew Pepoy, readers will love the immersion into a fantastical fairyland with themes we can all relate to.
The easiest way to order your copy of this beautiful graphic novel is to participate in the Kickstarter, and you’ll be glad you did because it features some awesome perks. In addition to digital, softcover and hardcover copies of Phantastes
, the campaign offers a graphic novel adaptation of The Light Princess
(also by George MacDonald); a subscription to The Fantasy Network
; a limited number of original art from Andrew Pepoy
(who is illustrating chapters 4-6 of the novel); and opportunities to connect directly with Cave Pictures Publishing
and with author Meredith Finch.
Daily updates will be posted on the campaign page
and Cave’s social media, including some sneak-peeks and glimpses “behind the scenes”, such as this exclusive excerpt from Chapter 2 of the book!
