Tunguska is a graphic novel about a secret expedition to Siberia in 1908. The story is based on a true event (a meteorite exploded above the region, flattening a vast forest) but we have mixed in fantastical elements and historical figures, including Rasputin, Lenin, Trotsky and Nikola Tesla. The graphic novel has been a pet project for the best part of three years for me as a writer and for drawing artist Stijn Felix.
After we won a two-yearly comic competition, in 2010-2011 the Belgian weekly magazine Focus Knack ran the first 43 pages of Tunguska, ending on a cliffhanger. In order to complete the story, 13 more pages are needed. A funding campaign on IndieGoGo has the goal to complete these pages and to print a 1,000 copy run of the graphic novel.
Your contribution will not only make our lifelong dream of publishing a graphic novel come true, You'll get a great yarn in return as well!
