Help publish volume 2 of Gatrophobia, a hilarious fantasy/adventure comic set in Ancient Greece! Read more
This project was successfully funded on March 14, 2012.
About this project
Gastrophobia is a webcomic about a single mom Amazon in Ancient Greece and her less-than-athletic 8-year-old son. I started Gastrophobia a little over 3 years ago. I self-published the first volume in 2010 and have been selling it at conventions and online. Now I want to publish volume 2.
Phobia is an egotistical barbarian warrior from Amazonia with dreams of glory. Gastro, however, has completely assimilated into Greek culture and wants to be a musician. (There are also talking animals in this comic.)
The book will contain episodes 13-18, the special "How to draw" chapter, all of the "bad comics" strips, plus a couple of new pages dedicated to character profiles. This 96 page book will be printed in 2 colors of ink: black & orange. Just like ancient greek pottery!
All of the content for the book is already written, drawn, and prepared for publishing. The printer has already been contacted and a quote has been confirmed. All that I need is the funding and the book should be published by April 2012!
The money raised will be used to pay the printer for 1000 books and, of course, to pay for shipping copies to everyone who preorders.
Outside of North America: please add $5 to your pledge of $15-$26 and $10 to your pledge of $50 or more. Thanks for your support!
Copies of volume one can be purchased at the Gastrophobia store.
