Other worksEdit

Yan has created numerous collections of pins, posters, and various pieces of art for the comic series. Most are manufactured and distributed by 4th Dimension Entertainment.[4]


The title for Knite is a combination of the English words "Knight" and "Kite", and the Simplified Chinese character for wind "风".[1]


At the beginning of the Knite comic, in the first chapter, there is a slide that says, "I dedicate this story to the land of my birth, China."[1]


The Knite comic originated as a flash comic first released on the art website deviantART on January 20, 2010. Eventually, the comic was picked up by 4th Dimension Entertainment, which announced the deal on Feburary 25, 2011 on their deviantART blog. Knite would still be published via internet, but 4DE would release the comic in bound book format as well as on devices like the Amazon Kindle 2, Apple iPad, and Barnes & Noble Nook.[10] A preliminary release date for the first book has been estimated "early-mid 2013" by Yan, via her profile on the art social network deviantART.[11]


Through the efforts of dedicated volunteers and fans, Knite is also being made available in 26 languages beside English.[12]
