At C506 we have already had the wonderful opportunity to share Drawing the line projects, which are synonymous with quality. The Exile is not the exception to the rule, so we invite you to continue with us and discover what this new comic is about!
Let’s talk about the story of this comic
After seven years of exile, battle-hardened Hallstein Thordsson returns home to Iceland, only to find that old wounds haven’t healed. His very presence disrupts the delicate balance and threatens to tip all of Iceland into violence.
A remarkable decades-spanning epic, Erik Kriek’s The Exile is equal parts action “Western” and family drama, with a surprising story of violence and consequences at its core. Told in a naturalistic modern style but with tremendous fidelity to the historical period in which it is set, The Exile depicts the Viking age in all of its conflict, turmoil, and social structure, with every detail depicted vividly on the page.
Do you want to see a preview? don’t worry, we’ve got you covered
The Exile will be printed as a large-format 192-page hardback sewn-binding book, on special archival paper that shows off its classic limited-color art to stunning effect. Additionally, we have made a signed and numbered deluxe edition of the book, exclusive to this Kickstarter, which is signed by artist Erik Kriek on a bookplate with artwork exclusive to this edition, and limited to 200 copies. This deluxe edition 200-page book also includes a unique eight-page signature that displays Erik’s developmental sketches and research for the book, giving insight into the historic realities behind this vivid work of fiction.
The deluxe edition will also include two large postcards, both with artwork created especially for this edition of the book!
Each pledge for a physical book will also include an exclusive oversize bookmark.
