My name is Rick Brooks. I am a classroom teacher and freelance cartoonist.   Here I am at a comic book convention.

I create and self-syndicate a weekly comic strip called MR. MORRIS. It is carried in several newspapers and appears online. Here's the website - http://mrmorriscomic.com/comic/

Now I'm putting together a large collection that contains all the comic strips I've created over the past four years, as well as some new stuff. 

Using Kickstarter gives me a chance to presell copies of the book, and it allows you the opportunity to order the book and pick up a few extra goodies. For example, pictured below are the three comic books I've already published. They are available as rewards at the $5.00 level. 

 Of course you can order the new collection for just twenty-five bucks. This collection will be over one hundred 8 1/2" x 11" square bound pages. It reprints every comic strip in full color as well as three comic stories, one of which is brand new. At the $30.00 level, you get the book as well as a MR. MORRIS sketch cover book. What is a sketch cover you may ask? Well, just check out the photograph below. A sketch cover is the regular comic book with a blank cover (see left photo). What I'll do is draw an original color sketch of one of the characters (see right photo).

 

 Now that we've hit our target, it's time for some stretch goals! Here we go - 

If the project hits $500 - Every backer at the $25.00 or above level gets a sketch inside their book.

If we hit $600 - Every backer at the $25.00 or above level gets a MR. MORRIS print.

Risks and challenges

This book is completely written and drawn. I'm currently in the process of laying out and coloring the pages. So - no risks! If you order the book, you'll get it in October 2017. That's it. It's a lot easier than trying to track me down at a comic book convention!

Thanks!
