Author Stephan Franck, the creator of the first two volumes of Silver via funding from Kickstarter, is back with another campaign. This time, Franck is starting up another funding venture for the third volume of Silver.
The series revolves around a group of shady characters who discover writing from Jonathan Harker, of Bram Stoker’s Dracula. Harker’s once forgotten writings divulge the fact that there is an abundance of silver treasure hidden inside Dracula’s castle and the group are willing to do whatever it takes to obtain the precious stash. However, in order to do so, they must ally with a sword-wielding vampire hunter with an entirely different ethical code, a descendent of Van Helsing himself.
Harkened as a remix of the beloved Dracula story with a modern twist and pulp fiction storytelling, the Silver series is beloved as a thriller graphic novel that fans adore. Silver has also given Stephan Franck and his company Dark Planet Comics the ability to deliver the story in the way he intended without having to run his idea past a publisher.
Additionally, Kickstarter funding has allowed Franck to directly connect with his audience which is one of the pinnacles of his success concerning Silver. With this new Kickstarter campaign, Franck hopes to bring volume 1 & 2 to a wider audience and fund volume 3 simultaneously.

**UPDATE** Update: There is going to be a second new book that is added to the Kickstarter that is diving into the past of one of Silver’s beloved characters, Rosalynd “Sledge” Van Helsing, aptly named Rosalynd.
