In order to get the doe, a socially-awkward goat has one night to take on the chupacabra.
Thanks for taking the time to read about my project: a comic book for all ages. The fact that you're here thrills me more than a song by Michael Jackson ever could. Hey, I'm a writer. A webpage hit amounts to that elusive human touch writers supposedly learn to live without. XD
Now that you're here, you want the pitch, right? Here you go.
Many of us have been in Herbie Boer's hoofs: Mooning over someone who may never be yours. But what if you had a chance to win that someone? That's what Chupaboer is all about--overcoming fears to win at love and at life.
Oh, and there's a cute, yoga-loving sidekick, too. ^_^ Life's more fun with friends, right? :D
As a matter of fact, here's the tee design:
So, where's your hard-earned money going?
I have invested, and will continue to invest, my own funds to see this project completed. Good thing I haven't tired of eating mac and cheese with weenies. Chris Fredricks of Abyssopus Studio is pencilling, inking and coloring the sequential pages, while Ed Brisson, whose comic Black River was recently released in the July edition of Diamonds Preview, is on board for lettering. So, all in all, we have a great creative team at work here. But I need your help to finish paying this team and get the comic to the printer.
What's in it for you as a backer?
Take a look at the right for various incentives to donate. Note that you'll even get a thank you note for donating a dollar! And they say the dollar is dead. Pfft.
You'll see that two of the backer rewards are limited rewards. The reason we did this is to keep the limited edition print just that--limited. Hoodies and t-shirts will be for sale later on, but the only way you can get the print is through Kickstarter.
Thanks so much for your support! I hope the story of Herbie Boer has motivated you to help back our project. ^_^
Yup, as long as you add a little extra to get your incentives to you.
We're shooting for Winter of 2012.
