The Pizza Rat Comic Anthology
Comic book pros each answer that burning, metaphysical question...WHO IS PIZZA RAT? http://whoispizzarat.com #comics #PizzaRat
The Pizza Rat comic anthology is happening, and you are invited to be a part of it! Who Is Pizza Rat? will be a digital & print one-shot Kickstarter-funded anthology featuring professional comic creators such as Rafer Roberts, Kelly Williams, and Amy Chu. Each writer or artist is given just one page to answer that burning metaphysical question…Who Is Pizza Rat?
Could Pizza Rat be...
- The lead reviewer of the underworld's favorite pizza review blog?
- A over-reaching subway dweller who bit off more than he could chew?
- A mad scientist enacting a plan to take over the world (like he does every night)?
- A single lady just trying to enjoy a slice after a hard day at the office?
- An adrenaline junkie looking for one last thrill?
- A forward thinker stocking up ahead of the pope's visit?
- An advance scout for a tiny, furry apocalypse?
Who Is Pizza Rat? will be a 24 page (or longer - stretch goals!) comic anthology in digital and print. The print will be street-zine style on newsprint to capture the street-level “life of a subway rat” vibe.
Amy, Rafer, and Chris want to raise enough to pay the writers and artists a little pizza money and cover an initial print run (and cover Kickstarter & Amazon fees, etc, etc). We have all had great success with Kickstarter on our own projects...and so here we are!

Risks and challenges
The risk here? Well, the biggest risk with Kickstarters is that we don't calculate the funds right to cover everything, or that we don't each our funding goal.
But Chris, Rafer, and Amy have all run multiple successful Kickstarters in comics and publishing and anthologies, so that helps lower the risks considerably.
Next big risk? That everyone won't have fun...but come on, Pizza Rat? We're already having fun!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
