Tobias Neal is turning the first three issues of his web comic into a print volume. The original web comic format is available to read at Two for One Comics.
The Sword: Volume One will contain approximately 88 pages (80 pages of story + extras) with a Full Color wrap-around cover. The first $1,800 will go to printing roughly 1,000 copies with remaining funds going to obtaining an ISBN number and other associated costs of printing.
A group of unlikely heroes must band together and be forged and sharpened into a sword that will be wielded…but for good or evil? Join Captain Rex, Evelyn the Elf, Airela the Shapeshifter and Slither the noble Lizardman as they are who are brought together through various circumstances and put in a position to save the world from a evil that threatens all the realms.
The Sword looks to be a web comic made graphic novel that will have a fair amount of overall appeal. It seems to fit into the action/adventure realm and so is in line with some of the other recently reviewed Graphic Novels like Bold Riley and Enchanted Explorer, although the tone is definitely more serious than Enchanted Explorer.

Chances of success
$2,000 is a very reasonable goal for a graphic novel campaign. That in itself will help the campaign be successful. In addition, Tobias is somewhat of a veteran when it comes to Kickstarter campaigns. This is his third campaign and the second one related to The Sword.
I’m also happy to see that the project includes a tier for being included in the story. As the tier reads, “[y]our likeness (or that of a friend, family member or Sword fan) will be used to create a member of The Harrowers – a group sworn to protect the sacred Harrow Wood forest!”
