A 200 page black and white collection of African Folktales Comics!
What's All This Then?
Cautionary Fables and Fairytales: Africa Edition is a fairy tale comic anthology. It is a follow up to the first Cautionary Fables and Fairytales that was funded in 2012. Both are organized by Kel McDonald of Sorcery 101. It's black and white and will be roughly 200 pages of damn awesome comics!
How Much Will This Cost, and Where Will The Money Go?
I'm asking for $20000 dollars. Most of that will be going to paying the artists taking part. The rest will be going to paying for the printing and shipping of 3000 copies of the book.
How close is the book to completion?
Everyone taking part has finished their story.
If I want more copies?
Just pay the amount that more copies would cost and leave a comment saying you want 2 or 3 or 4 etc
What happens after you reach the goal?
We are having a few extra special Creator Specific levels that will be revealed as funding continues.
Firstly at $25,000 the very talented Mary Cagle will be offering Commissions. Details to be revealed!!
We will be doing stretch goals which will earn all the wonderful artists bonuses!
If the Kickstarter reaches $25,000, each contributor/team will collect an extra $100.00.
If the Kickstarter reaches $30,000, each contributor/team will collect an extra $150.00.
If the Kickstarter reaches $35,000, each contributor/team will collect an extra $200.00.
If the Kickstarter reaches $40,000, each contributor/team will collect an extra $250.00.
And so on. There is no cap on the artist bonuses.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
I have printed and shipped out 5 different books, 4 of which were funded by kickstarter. The book is finished and laidout. So the risks are mostly delays on the printers and shipping end.
