The award winning comic strip the Penned Guin returns to Kickstarter with “Tension” - an all new collection of the daily cartoons that have appeared on-line from February 2018 to December 2018. The new book is 100 pages that are packed full with penguin laughs and giggles from the pen of creator Alan Henderson.
Who are we?
The Penned Guin comic strip features the fun antics of a funny group of penguins penned by writer/artist Alan Henderson. With family friendly humour for all, the daily webcomic has been running for over 5 years and appears on a variety of social media:
The New Book
“Tension" is our all new book that pulls together almost 180 of the daily comic strips, none of which have ever been in a printed edition before. The book is A5 landscape with 100 pages of black & white penguin humour featuring puns, dad jokes and cringing gags - as our penguin crew face new challenges including a re-branding!
Why Kickstarter for this book?
The Penned Guin has had three successful Kickstarter campaigns launching our previous books. This has allowed the penguins to ‘fly’ round the world, from Texas to New Zealand, as well as allowing us to make the statement “We’re big in Finland”
The new book is offered through the same process to reach as wide an audience as possible. The funds raises all go towards the production of the book and getting it into the hands of the backers, with any excess used to enhance the delivery and keep new strips appearing on-line.
The previous campaigns have successfully broken through their stretch goals and fingers crossed “Tension” will do the same –
- Initial funding goal is £300;
- Stretch goal #1 is £600 – all physical reward levels will receive all new A5 poster art cards
