The Kickstarter Report: ‘The King of Neverland’

Kickstarter is alive and well with a plethora of exciting projects in search of funding, and I am excited to return for a second time this week with another edition of Fanboy Comics’ Kickstarter Report!  In this edition, FBC will focus on another comic book creator who has known great success with previous crowdfunding campaigns.  Comic book creator/writer Siike Donnelly (The Adventures of Solestar, Elan Vital) returns, in collaboration with artist Ashley Lanni (27 Club Anthology), with The King of Neverland: A Peter Pan Sequel, and he needs your help to fund the production costs of the Young Adult novel! 

The King of Neverland is a YA novel which brings Wendy and her brothers back to Neverland. Joined by new character, Sun, along with Tiger Lily and the Lost Children, they must join forces to battle an evil King in a last-ditch attempt to soften his heart and turn him back into the boy everyone once loved: Peter Pan! The King of Neverland is a non-stop adventure that will capture your heart and imagination all over again, delivering a Peter Pan epic unlike any other.

“This wasn’t about doing a ‘darker, grittier’ take on Peter Pan,” said Donnelly.  “In our world today, we seem to elevate people online, only to inevitably tear them down for their sins.” “We’ve seen a LOT of our heroes become villains. I wanted to tackle that in a story with someone so loved, like Peter. I want to show what that fall does to the person falling, and those that idolized them.”

Be sure to visit The King of Neverland Kickstarter page, and don’t forget to check out the backer rewards, which include digital and signed printed editions of the book, character masks, special edition watercolor paintings, and more! The Kickstarter campaign will close on Monday, November 2, so be sure to donate soon!
