The Kickstarter page for the King King adult graphic novel was launched today to help the team of more than 30 comic creators make this crazy ride a reality. Two years ago, what started as an ambitious dream for King Kings writer and creator José Hingá is turning into a promising 132 page fully-fledged graphic novel if it hits its £36,000 crowd funding goal. What may sound as a hefty bill is immediately justified by the rewards showcased on the Kickstarter's page and firmly underlined by a line-up of artists with sounding names like Ubisoft, Marvel and Blizzard under their belts.

A visual anthology, King King promises to defy the cookie cutter regime of the actuality by delivering an insane rock 'n' roll tour-like interdimensional adventure that changes its visual style every four pages. Resembling a relay race, where members of the team take turns illustrating the story only passing the spotlight at the end of each chapter. A spotlight that the team intends to share with a "character design challenge" initiative that is currently displayed on the Kickstarter's page, defying both backers and art enthusiasts to design one of the book's main characters. A true fighter that can't control her own size, Alice is a white-haired stubborn little girl that is always carrying a sketchbook in which she draws things that are said to foretell future events.
Offering well thought rewards and promoting a transparent campaign with a private blog set to give timely updates on the development of the project. More than a common graphic novel and with two years of time and effort being put into pre-production, the King King team looks ready to satiate every reader's thirst for "the behind the scenes" side of it, wanting every backer to tag along with the crew. From being an actual character of the universe to being God! The project appears to look like a rollercoaster of content ready to be enjoyed.
King King is on Kickstarter until 12 May 2017, seeking a target of £36,000.
