There’s a large faction of fans that grew up reading SnarfQuest. To bring the comic back to those fans would be like helping them revisit their childhood.
Las Vegas (PRWEB) April 16, 2014
Less than two weeks into the Kickstarter campaign, the highly-anticipated SnarfQuest 30th Anniversary Remastered Graphic Novel project has reached its $10,000 funding goal. Timeless fantasy icon Larry Elmore partnered with author Maxwell Alexander Drake and the publishing house, Imagined Interprises, Inc., to bring the project to Kickstarter; now the team aims to surpass the stretch goals set forth for the project.
Imagined Interprises, Inc. publishes Maxwell Alexander Drake, a well-known fantasy author and creator of the award-winning Genesis of Oblivion Saga, a six-book Young Adult Fantasy series. In addition to the series he writes for Imagined Interprises, Inc., Drake has also been commissioned as a lead tie-in writer for EverQuest Next, the upcoming Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game (MMORPG) from Sony Online Entertainment. His involvement with SnarfQuest, however, is a tribute to one of the writers who influenced his entire career.
“SnarfQuest was a staple in the fantasy comic book community throughout the 1980’s,” said Drake. “There’s a large faction of fans that grew up reading SnarfQuest. To bring the comic back to those fans would be like helping them revisit their childhood.”
As a lifelong fan of SnarfQuest, Drake’s dream of bringing Elmore’s comic strip to life is now becoming a reality thanks to the generosity of the project’s backers. In order to reward those who helped make this project possible and to generate further interest in SnarfQuest, Imagined Interprises, Inc. has instituted a series of stretch goals.
The project has a total of seven stretch goals, starting at the $15,000 mark and ending at $150,000. If the project reaches its first stretch goal, all backers will receive an eBook copy of Drake’s award-winning novel, Farmers & Mercenaries – book one of the Genesis of Oblivion Saga. If the project reaches $40,000 in pledges, the SnarfQuest 30th Anniversary Edition will be upgraded from paperback to hardback. If the project reaches the $150,000 level, the entire SnarfQuest graphic novel will be produced in full-color.
