AW YEAH COMICS! will be a new all-reader friendly comic book featuring characters created by Eisner and Harvey award winning cartoonists Art Baltazar and Franco. Though centered around Action Cat and Adventure Bug, AW YEAH COMICS! will have a whole cast of characters created just for this title.
We've a long list of talented contributors on board and plan to mix stories by established creators with those of up and comers. Accessible to adults and children alike, our hope is to present a comic book that has just as much to offer a little girl as it does a little boy, and leave absolutely no one out of the fun.
Because fun is important. Fun is a good thing for a comic book to have, and we want to add a little bit more of it to what's out there now.
The plans have been made, amazingly talented people have gotten involved, and we've already begun work on the first six issues. What we're coming to you for is to ask for your help in getting them printed. Our goal of $15,000 is to cover the cost of printing those first six issues, taking care of the (creation and/or shipping of) incentives, and pay the fees that will be incurred after a successful funding.
With stories by established professionals like Art Baltazar, Franco, Mark Waid, Brad Meltzer, Chris Roberson, Jason Aaron, and new voices such as Denver Brubaker, Alejandro Rosado, Patrick Scullin, Jen Aprahamian and Chris Smits, we feel we're really creating something special. Something that everyone can smile about and it's something we all really want to get the chance to share with you and yours.
We've tried to keep the incentives accessible to everyone, with some (what we're hoping you think are) very cool lower dollar amount rewards. There are some push goals in mind and some more really fun and unique rewards to be added if funding goes well, so we've got our collective fingers crossed that you'll be able to help us reach our goals.
Thank you for your time in reading our pitch.
PUSH GOAL! Since we've successfully funded the first six issues, we're trying to get to $30,000 and fund the entire first year! TWELVE issues of AW YEAH COMICS! means more of everything awesome! More issues, more creators, more FUN! Dealer incentives have been added to help reach this goal, and the original pages of artwork for the second issue are now up for grabs as well.
Let's keep the momentum going, everyone! We've got a lot more plans if we can kick a lot more starter!
Risks and challenges
Our target release date of printed books is April 26-28, 2013, at Chicago's C2E2 convention. Since work has already commenced on these books, issues 1-3 are already 80% finished and books 4-6 are around 60%. With this head start we are hoping to meet the reward dates listed, with the other rewards hopefully following suit.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
