Hello! 

Thank you so much for taking the time to check out SPANK! Let me tell you this is going to be one awesome lady comic right here! In this graphic novel I take on the male gaze, and male-driven narratives, letting my fearsome cast of female fighters dazzle! Help me complete and print my Graphic Novel Spank!

The Book

SPANK is a black and white graphic novel following the heroics and antics of Spank and her team of deadly female assassins! Follow the story of a female gang through 100 pages of in your face action! 

Why KickStarter?

The funding is to help support getting my Graphic Novel printed and into reader's hands! With a platform like KickStarter I will be able to contribute one more female voice into the awesome universe that is comic art! 

With your help I complete my last pages, print 1000 copies of SPANK and share her story!

With your extra help we will be able to get the complete kit, with a hopeful screen-printed cover! 

Funding and Goals!

Remember $2,000 is my baseline Goal, this will go to printing my 1000 copies. Every bit after that goes towards taking my project to the next level!

  • $2,000 Goal – 1,000 Printed B&W copies of Spank! Achieved! 
  • $3,000 Stretch Goal – 1,000 copies with a paper and cover upgrade! Alright! Achieved!
  • $4,000 Super Stretch Goal – 1,000 copies with a bonus chapter and character pages! Woo-hoo! Achieved!
  • $6,500 Super Duper Stretch Goal – We earned it! We unlocked the Screen Printed Cover Achievement! 
Timeline

The remainder of November and December will be dedicated to the promotion of Spank!

 November and December will be dedicated to the completion of my page count.

 January will be dedicated to digital edits, making a proof copy and getting the print on demand services going. Spank will then be ready for print.

February will be the month dedicated to printing and shipping!

March 1st SPANK will be ready to be shipped to you!

Who am I?

My name is Kitty Berry and I'm a recent graduate from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. I'm a born and raised Texan, who loves stirring up trouble! My passion has always been finding ways to bring more female presence into comics. I'm hoping to create more female narratives and characters who speak to what it means to be an individual. I strive to make characters who have presence, voice and the option to be sexual, but never objectified! Spank has been very special to me as it has been my graphic novel in the making, and finally with your help I will be able to print it!  

Thank you for taking the time to learn about SPANK! And a big thank you for supporting me and my graphic novel!

Risks and challenges

My goal is to finish SPANK by December 1st and have her printed and ready to ship by mid January! I plan to dedicate my all to Spank, but of course projects of this magnitude can run into delays, printing costs, and general project problems. The greatest risk is that this project and my hope to publish SPANK is self-propelled and requires a great amount of dedication and perseverance. If any problems arise it gives me great comfort to know that I have the incredible community of artists here in Minneapolis to help me.
With great luck, I am very familiar with self-publishing, having worked at Uncivilized Books with Tom Kaczynski, and Majored in Comic Art and the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. This know-how, and my unbreakable can-do-spirit motivate me to conquer anything and make this project happen! With your support and the aid of an amazing group of people supplied by the faculty and students at MCAD I believe Spank will be able to rise about such challenges and succeed.
