About this project
Have you ever been standing in front of the children's magazines and find that your child has outgrown the princess and babyish magazines and is not yet old enough for the teen magazines. You are probably buying for a child who is 7-13 years old and in this area your options are very limited.
I encountered this situation as my daughter grew out of the princess magazine stage and wanted something to take its place. I searched the market and found very little available. We tried many different magazines and my daughter found she liked reading the traditional style of comic she found most of the characters are aimed at boys. We also found that we were paying extra for all the plastic stuff that was stuck to the front cover which ended up broken and in the bin within minutes.
This is why he have come up with the idea of Yoinks! comic
Why we need your help.
We need your help we to establish Yoinks Comic as a monthly comic that can be bought as an annual subscription to be delivered straight to your door. We are creating a fantastic comic that your children will love and look forward to reading each month.
To achieve this we are employing some of the top writers and artists involved in the comic industry to produce high quality stories, character design and artwork. along side of this we have the costs of marketing, printing and postage.
Yoinks Comic is being developed by us, a team of artists and writers who have written and drawn for nearly every comic publication in the market. Over the last 24 months we have created and tested characters for Yoinks Comic. It is aimed at girls and boys aged 7-13 with an equal mix of strong and imaginative male and female lead characters. Our characters have been developed for longevity of story lines that will work both in the traditional comic space and translate into digital media. Our puzzle pages are absorbing and challenging rather than just five second page turners

Risks and challenges
RISKS AND CHALLENGES
No one wants to see a good idea executed poorly. We have worked really hard to get Yoinks! Comic ready for Kickstarter and fulfillment, but here are what we see as the risks:
MANUFACTURING: When Yoinks! Comic goes to print there is a lead time to fill the order which increases as the order size increases.There is typically a 15 day lead time to print. If this is a successful champagne the lead time may increase. To minimize the effect of this we're working with a printer with a track record for prompt delivery of a quality product.
PRODUCT ADJUSTMENTS: As the Yoinks! Comic gets ready for production, there will likely be some minor adjustments to improve the final product. Pre-production prototypes are made to check and refine the final product
FULFILLMENT: Sometimes things happen that can’t be planned for: a writer artist or supplier misses a deadline, a machine breaks down, or a shipment gets lost. These are things that will cause a delay. To minimize the possibility of printing setbacks we will enter the printing stage with at least one back-up printer.
Any pledge amount brings us one step closer to our goal. Help us make Yoinks! Comic a thing of a imagination a reality by clicking the ‘Back This Project’ button at the top of the page, or by helping us spread the word by sharing our page.
