What we want to do is raise enough to finish the Queen Crab graphic novel and get it published at the beginning of the new year. We are using the money from the pledge incentives to pay for the production of the book . We are looking at the ever growing community of fans of the graphic novel format to support this project and other projects that feature all new and original content. 

Queen crab is the story of GINGER DRAKE, a single girl that lives in Brooklyn, New York. Ginger isn't satisfied with anything in her life and feels like life is slipping right by her. To counteract this feeling, she's decided to settle down and marry a guy that's fallen head over heels for her. She knows he is far from perfect and she isn't truly in love, but takes the plunge twice in one night. Ginger gets married and starts her honeymoon on a cruise ship where her new husband tries to murder her by tossing her overboard in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. 

 Ginger wakes the next day on the beaches of Coney Island, her arms physically altered to resemble crab claws... and that's not even the beginning of her worries. 

This is a 45 page graphic novel that will also feature a pin-up gallery and more , bringing it in to close to 70 pages total. The book will also feature a cover by the award winning illustrator Sas Christian. 

Thanks in advance for your support. You all are awesome!
