A comic about love, girls and beer. 175 full pages of comics made by Chloe over the last year put into color print for the first time.
Hello lovely peepz, this is Chloé C. from the webcomic Go Get a Roomie! Nearly three years ago, I created this wild hippie livin' her life, runnin' naked and drinkin' her friends- I mean beers. Drinking her beers. Back then my only wish for Roomie was to see it update more or less regularly, and perhaps even make it a "real" webcomic. That was how far I imagined things to go, if I was lucky! -End of flashback- Cue present moment.
Go Get a Roomie has its own proper website, is now read by tens of thousands of people from all across the world, has received overwhelming love, touching feedbacks, brilliant fanarts, (great help too), and today, has a chance to be published into a real, printed book. But what is Go Get a Roomie about? If you really have no clue, I might as well warn you: it has a lot of genuine love for both the world and the humans inhabiting it.
There, I said it. Naturally, it was rated NSFW. But never fear, the boobs are here to ease your discomfort. Quite a plentiful too, as the main character, Roomie, never fails to cast away her clothes whenever the occasion rises (well, she makes her own occasions, really). Now that we have two ingredients in the Go Get a Roomie recipe (universal love, and an outgoing hippie), let's add in bits of friendship and a big dose of Lillian, the Lazy Tyke. Lillian is Roomie's opposite in many ways: where Roomie parties, she sleeps (aka: a whole friggin' lot), where Roomie drinks, she reads fairy-tale books, and where Roomie has sexy fun with varieties of lovely ladies, Lillian remains one of the very few who doesn't fall for the hippie's charms.
Go Get a Roomie includes many other friends, one more bizarre and lovable than the other, and offers a different way of seeing life and all living beings. Since its first page, the comic has been there to corrupt the world with fond smiles and happy sighs. If it can continue to do so through a new printed form, it would make a dream come true. Not only will the first book of Go Get a Roomie include all of chapters 1-12, but countless other extras as well! Bonus chapter, illustrations and sketches, redrawn comic strips, drinking game, kitties, a sneak peek at a secret project, and much more!
*Note the $130 original page tier also includes all previous tier rewards including book.*
-30,000 we'll throw in some extra charms and stickers free for everyone ordering at least a book.
-50,000 we'll throw in a bonus book only chapter on top of the mini chapter already being put into the book.
-75,000 For all you backers, in digital format a making-of video. What will it consist of? Let's just say I'll do everything possible to make it look as clean, enriching AND FUN as I can. And I'll make sure to introduce ALL of the steps I follow in order to make a Go Get a Roomie strip, including an inspiring trip to Jo's bar. How does that sound? I know it's nothing remotely resembling a plushie, but it's the best, handiest idea I can offer. I sincerely hope it suits you, and I do apologize for the change in rewards. I hope you understand.
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Through the last 2 1/2 years Chloe's been drawing her best to get to this point. With her assistant Joseph they've taken Roomie to new heights but we're still not there yet. The greatest issue to this Kickstarter would be getting it funded and everything done in a timely fashion.
