Transfurred: The Worlds Greatest 12 Year Old Detective

$4,027

89


Transfurred is a comic book series about Jaynie Lain, a 12-year-old master detective in the Southern town of Knaubleik. Followed by her faithful companion, Jones (a cowardly Pit bull), together they solve some of the city’s most difficult mysteries. Now a local celebrity, Jaynie has it made, but she holds the greatest secret in the town. In truth, she’s Transgender.

This Kickstarter Campaign is for the premier issue of Transfurred written and illustrated by Shawn Harbin (creator of The Dungeon Comic: The Most Epic Comic Ever and co-creator of Roadkill Du Jour ). This Kickstarter will fund the printing of Transfurred Issue 1 along with the production of stickers and other prints.

While my other comic series The Dungeon Comic: The Most Epic Comic Ever was mainly an R-Rated book, I purposely designed Transfurred to be an ALL AGES BOOK. Of course I want everyone to enjoy it, but I mainly wrote it for teens like Jaynie to have a comic hero they could relate to, but I also wanted to help open a world of acceptance.  I made a great effort not to politicize the character or the story, so the comic is in the vein of Saturday morning cartoons. Jaynie is a great detective solving mysteries and fighting monster, she just happens to be trans. I felt by allowing people love Jaynie first as a person, the cause would follow. 

 Knoxville News Sentinel article on Why I made a comic with a transgender hero. 

 The Characters: 

 Jaynie Lain, our hero character, is a master detective, always coming up with a plan to stop whatever monster or baddie that crosses her path. She is peppy, upbeat, extremely extroverted, and smart as whip. An absolute charming 12 year old girl, Jaynie wins the hearts of most of the people she meets. 

 Jones is Jaynie's pet pit bull terrier. He's not up for things death defying, scary, or dangerous. Yet, he is her loyal companion, often snatching her out of harms way at last second. He may not be the bravest or meanest Pit bull, but he's the most faithful partner one could ask for in a friend.

 Rewards!!!

Since you're interested, you might ask, "What kinds of things can I get from backing this campaign?" Well I am offering 2 covers. The Standard Cover and the Kickstarter Exclusive Cover. The Kickstarter Exclusive cover is only available here through this campaign.


So what kind of cool things can you get by backing this Kickstarter? Check out these awesomely, cool incentives such as: The Friendship magnet, The Jaynie Sticker, and The Kickstarter Exclusive 7.5"x 11" Print. Each Kickstarter Exclusive Print will be personally signed by series creator Shawn Harbin. 

 As a thank you to early backers, I am offering to People that back the Kickstarter in the first 3 days will get this special Variant Print, FREE! You simple have to back a tier that's $25 or more in the first 72 hours of the campaign. Even if you are backing a tier with Kickstarter Exclusive Print you will get both prints! 


If your looking for Original Art, I will also be offering a Transfurred Issue 1 Sketch Cover Variant. You can get any 1 character of your choice with background drawn directly on the blank cover of the comic in color allowing you to keep your own original art work by Shawn Harbin. 



Original Art will also be available in the $75 reward tier. Get Any 1 full body character of your choosing (No Background) in black and white ink on 9"x 12" Bristol board available to only 5 backers.

But wait there's more... 

 Printing of the issues will take about 6-8 weeks.  To make the wait time a little easier, I am giving everyone that donates to any tier that's $10 or more, will receive a digital copy of the Comic to read while they wait. You can also get a digital copy for people on a budget for $5.  

 So here's a break down...


 Shipping is factored in to All tiers. So what you see is what you pay!

Advertising Opportunities!

Thank you for taking time to review this Kickstarter Campaign. If you don't have the money to help, please help by sharing this link and spreading the word so we can get Transfurred into the world. 

Risks and challenges

There are predominantly no risks involved. The Comic is finished and ready to be printed. All other Promotional Material Is ready for print as well. Most of the risks involve printers as sometimes print time can vary and be out my control. I will be using an over seas printer to keep costs down but it is about a 6-8 week wait, but I will be giving digital copies to everyone that donates $5 or more.
