Magnetic Press Takes Brindille and Love: The Mastiff by Frédéric Brrémaud & Federico Bertolucci to Kickstarter

Magnetic Press has launched a Kickstarter for two graphic novels, Brindille and Love: The Mastiff, by Frédéric Brrémaud and Federico Bertolucci to Kickstarter. The project has already passed its goal and will end on January 7, 2021.

In Brindille, a young girl wakes up in the midst of a raging forest fire, with no memory of who she is or how she got there. After being rescued by a nearby village of elf-like creatures, she sets out on a magical journey in search of answers to questions she doesn’t even know how to ask. Along the way, she befriends a talking wolf who takes on the role of guide and guardian on this strange, epic adventure.

In Love: The Mastiff, a loyal hunting dog finds himself alone in the wild outback of Australia when his master is struck down by a poisonous snake during an expedition. Now he must make his way through the dangers and obstacles of the magnificent wilderness, relying on instincts that no amount of domestication can fully suppress…

There’s numerous tiers to pledge to including digital copies, physical copies, a retailer pledge and more.

You have until January 7 to pledge.
