about US!

Hi! We’re Guy and Kamilla!
MONARCHS OF THE WILD is a graphic novel inspired by our four-year adventure cycling around the world!
It’s a patchwork quilt of a tale: part adventure, part bike touring how-to guide, part historical memoir, part daydream, and a large heap of romance. Along for the ride is our talented friend Joe, who’s illustrating the story.
We’re planning to release the individual chapters in digital format first, and print it all as a compilation that will cover our entire journey.
Chapter 1 is available now! And don’t forget to sign up to our newsletter for more updates.

Home is where the bike is, Earth
