Welcome comic book fans! Hi-Fi is a creative studio founded in 1998 with a team of artists who are passionate about comic books. Over the past 15 years Hi-Fi has enjoyed coloring comic books for publishers like Bongo, DC, Dark Horse, Disney, Image, Marvel, Top Cow, Vertigo, and more. In that time Hi-Fi has served as vital members of the visual storytelling team behind many of your favorite comic books. Now we have come to you and Kickstarter with the hope of producing our first graphic novel collecting the UNTOLD TALES from the creators at Hi-Fi.
Within these pages you will discover sword and sorcery, a carnival sideshow, a hero with incredible powers, and many other stories to thrill you.

Those stories that have remained untold for 15 years are now laid bare on the page for your reading pleasure.
