Last Night at Wyrmwood High Kickstarter

Wyrmwood Secondary School has had the same grad prank for the past 50 years. This year Amber (a werewolf), Tiffany (a vampire), and Steph (a reptile) have set out to change that. The problem is that the school is cursed. And the end of school (forever) isn’t going to go as planned….

Last Night at Wyrmwood High is written and drawn by Kathleen Gros. This is Cloudscape’s first book to feature a single artist’s vision in its entirety. Our fundraiser has started at the Last Night at Wyrmwood High Kickstarter. Please order yours today and help us make this book a reality.
