About this project

Dreamy comic strips featuring quaint constraints, bees used a murder weapons, angry Scottish poets, strained membrances, your trusted friend Psychic Detective and much more!

Kickstarter exclusives.

All physical orders come with a small hand-drawn bookmark (here's a short video of me drawing not a pipe) and all $20+ orders will include a supplement to the main zine (small update: I won’t be printing last year’s Calvino collaborations for the supplement, instead it will be a brand new Kickstarter-exclusive adaptation of If On A Winter’s Night A Traveler). Among other rewards that won't be sold anywhere else are tote bags, out-of-print zines and commissions! All rewards include digital versions of the comics with a few extra drawings and funnies.

Rewards.

Four old zines: Yellow Zine issues 1, 2, untitled sketchzine, Impressions of Impressions of Africa. Smaller books: The Purloined Letter and a sketchbook.

Tote bag I designed for Rappart (not for sale anywhere).

For the original pieces, you can either let me draw anything I want or you can suggest a word, phrase or any such request! For the $300 pledge I will make a collaborative watercolor piece with my wife, Sophia Foster-Dimino.

Previews.

If I exceed the goal.

One of my previous mini-comics, P/d INDIGEST, was overfunded on kickstarter in less than a day, which allowed me to print plenty of bonus material that I sent to many of the backers.

If I exceed the goal this time, I will again spend the extra money on creating and printing new material, including a sketchzine, a risograph-zine and mini-folio of my book-inspired illustrations. I will send as many of these additional rewards as the final sum allows me.

About the author.

Roman Muradov's illustrations have appeared in The New Yorker, New York Times, Wall Street Journal and other nice places. His first graphic novel “(In A Sense) Lost & Found” will be published by Nobrow Press in Fall of 2013.

Previous two issues of Yellow Zine were nominated at Stumptown Comics Festival five times. Tom Spurgeon of The Comics Reporter described the second issue as “purposefully frustrating and frequently pretty.”

Risks and challenges

Last time I had over 100 original drawings to make and send, but I managed to send all of them within half-year. Some of the more complex commissions might take extra time, but I'll try to send everything out before the end of Summer.
