This will be a coveted collector's item: 72 full-colour pages of graphic novel goodness, wrapped in hardcover (so you can take it on the stagecoach with you). It's a stand-alone story: the further adventures of Modo, star of The Hunchback Assignments novels. He's been trained by the British to be a secret agent and is a hunchback with a special ability: he can change his shape to look like other people.

The four bestselling novels in the series were the inspiration:

Now see the characters come to life in a full colour graphic novel. In Ember's End, Modo and his fellow agent, Octavia, find themselves in the Wild West. 

They stumble across the town of Ember's End, built by the mad scientist Ebenenezer Ember, who has vanished but has left behind his beguiling daughter.

Ebenezer Ember

There's a rumour that Ebenezer has invented a device that will end all wars. This has brought the mercenary, Ogden Bull, to town. It becomes a race to find the device and to see who will use it first...

Ogden Nash

Think: action, over-the-top adventure, a huge dollop of fantastical fun and enough humour to tickle your innards.

Arthur Slade is the author of seventeen bestselling novels (including Dust, Jolted and The Hunchback Assignments) and Hallowed Knight, a four-part comic book series. His writing has won numerous awards including the Governor General's Award (Canada) and Le Grande Priz L'imaginaire (France). Christopher Steininger is an illustrator whose work has appeared in comics like DeadHeaven, Worlds of Dungeons & Dragons, Avengelyne, and also games like Spec Ops: The Line.

 

We're looking for enough greenbacks to print a full-colour collector's edition of Ember's End. (It's gonna look real purrrty.) The artist and author will also be paid for their work. More importantly, we have several awesome stretch rewards in mind should we surpass our funding goal. Will it be buttons? T-shirts? Airships for everyone? Stay tuned.

It's been our longstanding dream to create a graphic novel inspired by The Hunchback Assignments. Now you can be a part of that dream. And pick up some cool swag too.
