Description

Title: THE GREAT SUCCESSOR
KIM JONG-UN – A POLITICAL CARTOON
An epic comic of the Dark Kingdom and the passing of power to a third Kim.

THE GREAT SUCCESSOR is a political comic/ graphic novel about the succession of Power in North Korea to a third generation of Kim - Kim Jong-Un. This book was originally published in Korean and we are creating the English Language version.

It attempts to answer the questions:
Who is this third Kim?
Where did he come from?
Will he make change?
Will he attack?
Should we be afraid of him?

THE GREAT SUCCESSOR details the realities of the recent succession of Kim Jung-Eun as leader of the DPRK. From propaganda engines to “trusted” news sources, many of us will never know what really goes on in the Dark Kingdom. THE GREAT SUCCESSOR provides a rare glimpse at the new face (and belly) of leadership in the North.

This cover should be powerful and clear - it should relate both that it is a serious topic (not a funny comic book), that it is in comic form, and that it is about Kim Jong-Un.

Royalty free images are not permissible. The cover of this book must be unique and inspire someone who wants to start a business to pick it up off the shelf. I must have the ability to own this design outright without copyright infringement down the road.

i've included our logo kit, the original Korean cover, a couple of samples of cover designs that had some interest but weren't quite powerful or provocative enough, and a sample of some of the book.

cover should be 5.83x8.27
For the final file handover, I'll need the template in the proper format (referenced in the zip file) AND in a multi-layered format
