Pilgrim: Secrets and Lies – the Kickstarter figure!

How cool is this? Here are some of the renders of the limited edition figure of Pilgrim – Secrets and Lies series star Lily Winters, the character I created for the comic series I’m writing for B7 Comics.

Pilgrim – Secrets and Lies is currently seeking backing here on Kickstarter, and the project to raise £3500 has 16 days to run.

This limited edition figure is being offered to those choosing the “Elite” tier to support all four issues of the series – and there are only 46 left!

Lily is first seen in the free to read eight-page “trailer” for our comic, when we saw her seriously underestimate a devious Western Alliance official, Tate, thinking her just a pen-pusher. So begins a series of events that led to Lily’s involvement with a mysterious alien artefact, exploring secrets hidden under the ice in Antarctica, and perhaps finding out who her father, Noah, really was… 

On offer is a detailed 6″ (160mm) 3D resin figurine of Pilgrim’s principal character, Lily, based on art by Neil Edwards.
