HANNIBAL AD PORTOS
3 months ago – Tue, Mar 17, 2020 at 08:27:27 PM

Hannibal is at the Gates. A reference to the man who conquered Rome. That's what Roman parents used to tell their kids to make them behave -- it's the ancient equivalent of the bogey man is coming. It's also a message inside the 'Unicorn Guide' Mae's mother left her when she died. An 'In Case of Emergency' message to her daughter as the bad guys close in.  

Hannibal Ad Portos

 In some ways it feels like Hannibal is at the Gates in our world now with all the uncertainty and confusion. The world needs a lot more hope, faith and love to fight against the panic and confusion. We hope everyone is staying safe and sane. Together we will weather this and come out stronger and better prepared for the next time something like this happens. 

Things are progressing well on UNIKORN despite the current uncertainty in the world. As of now our artist and colorist are working away while in quarantine in Brazil and are safe and healthy for the moment. Our letterer is finishing issue #1 of the series as we speak and we will be sending it to everyone of our backers digitally very soon as a thank you for weathering the delay and hopefully as something to lift everyone's spirits during these uncertain times. 

2 page spread

Thank you all again for your support and your patience. We will keep sending more art previews as things continue to progress!

Estimated Ship Date
4 months ago – Sat, Feb 08, 2020 at 07:53:00 PM

Hello Backers, 

As we mentioned in our last update, the script is complete and our artist is well underway. Below you can see a full two-page spread that will be in the book. 

As you can see the art is great -- and very detailed, but with the added length of the book, it's going to take a lot longer than we originally projected. We have been crunching the numbers and discussing dates with our artist and it looks like we will be able to ship everything in early Q4 of this year. That is taking into effect everything that is happening right now in China (where we will print the book) which we hope gets resolved soon.

We will continue to post art and updates as things continue to progress, please let us know if you have any questions. And again, thank you all for your patience and understanding.

A UNIKORN PREVIEW!
4 months ago – Fri, Jan 24, 2020 at 01:52:50 AM

Happy New Year to all of our backers. We have been communicating through messages, but have not been sending frequent updates -- but we will be doing so regularly from here on out.

First of all, we are way behind schedule. There are two reasons for this: 

1) we completely rewrote the script about 5-6 times -- and the book got a lot better, but also became almost twice as long. The book is now expected to be about 175 or more pages. Which is great for our backers, but makes the art take twice as long also. 

2) our artist was a bit delayed due to finishing another project but is back in action, doing beautiful work and we are getting pages regularly that we will be sharing with all of you. 

We are happy to now share with all of you a 12 page preview of the book in PDF form. You can download it RIGHT NOW by clicking on this link: UNIKORN BOOK (please let us know if you have any issues!) 

We have a lot more exciting news to share with you in the near future as well as art updates as we move forward so will keep the updates coming! 

Please feel free to email us hello@unikornbook.com to let us know what you think of the pages so far!

Thank you all again for your patience and support!

Best
