The Bardic Verses – Our Thoughts And How You Can Pledge To Their Kickstarter Campaign

Matt Summo and Pete Collins have delved their teeth into a brand new graphic novel. Given how competitive the comic industry is at present, this is an admirable move, and by looking at the details thus far, they’re impressive.

If you’re unaware of what the new novel is about, we have you covered. This is a snippet taken from the Kickstarter page.

The Bardic Verses is an anthology-style graphic novel about a bard attempting to escape the long shadow of his warrior-family legacy. Our lead character Martiln Swordhand tells his tales in an old tavern and each tale is drawn in a different art style.

The Bardic Verses is first and foremost a love letter to traditional comics, tabletop RPGs, and sword and sorcery books. The stories within pay tribute to noir comics, Disney movies, Bill Watterson, Ryan Ottley, Rob Liefeld, Jack Kirby, and more!
