Unlucky is as Lucky does

Creator: M. Nires – a 23-year-old Canadian artist/stick figure who once ate pickles and peanut butter

Description: An enemy from afar has threatened to kidnap the king’s daughter. The king springs into action seeking the most elite members of his kingdom to protect her. Sounds like your average everyday fantasy tale. Except that it isn’t… The king is overprotective, the queen can barely tolerate the king, the princess-in-distress is only 7 years old but is strong enough to beat up anyone in the kingdom, and the man or woman who must protect her? He doesn’t have to be the strongest or the smartest…just the LUCKIEST person who ever lived. So yeah, what this tale lacks in tradition, it makes up for in sheer over-the-top lunacy!

And then on the day she graduated from Monster Hunter school, with her whole professional life ahead of her…the world declared eternal peace between monsters and humans. Well then. Now, with a useless degree, and no other viable job skills, Axelia must take on any job that will have her. Alongside a wisecracking, underachieving demon and pretty wood nymph whose roots don’t quite reach the soil, Axelia is determined to find the adventure she craves – even if it’s at a soul-crushing minimum wage job. Girl’s gotta eat, right?
