Tellest Art: The Bindings of Fate Cover

Tellest Art: The Bindings of Fate Cover

You know, technically this is the grand reveal of the new The Bindings of Fate cover!

When we were successful with the Kickstarter campaign, we managed to nab a stretch goal…

Being as how late this review is, and one particular topic I want to talk about in regards to this film, I feel that this blog is the place to do so.
