The fifth issue of the acclaimed oneiromanthology featuring your favorite psychic detective, smalltalk plagiarism, semi-afterlife, psychogeography, constrained dances, questionnaires and more.

As usual, full digital version (this time with extra color content) for ridiculously low prices ($1) and as usual each physical copy ($15+) will come with an original (which can be just about anything, a sketch, a pencilled or inked page, a handmade texture or even a full illustration).

Additional items with blank opening pages will be lovingly signed with a little sketch made just for you.

Note: last time I couldn't resist including lots of pointless questions in the survey. Questions like "why dolphins?" or "are you left-handed or right-handed?" (options: 1. yes 2. yes). Some people were confused by them, so I won't do it again.

Praise for previous Yellow Zines

"smart and funny" Comics & Cola

"stunningly surreal" It's Nice That

“purposefully frustrating” the Comics Reporter

“funny, weird, and strangely heartfelt” Biblioklept

"wonderfully unsettling" Illustration Age

Rewards

 Wine Notebook. A brand new duotone lined notebook printed by Scout Books with a little boozy doodle on the first page. Kickstarter Prohibition disclaimer: the sketchbook has no alcohol content, although you can soak it in wine and suck on the edges if you insist.

 The Purloined Letter. I illustrated this Poe story a few years ago, but Scout Books recently sent me another box of these, so here's a chance to grab a signed copy.

 Linoprints. Several hand-made prints in varying degrees of roughness (numbered to look important).

NPR calendar: yes, I still have some. It's now 1/3 the original price and yes, I know you don't use paper calendars, but remember it doubles as a cheap artbook full of genuinely good illustration (I won a gold medal from the Society of Illustrators for mine).

Yellow Zine four: the previous Yellow Zine, featuring loads of comics about dogs, as well as a few constrained experiments, people not saying very much and a guide to gestures at parties.

A Very Comfy Sofa: an illustrated short story about a very comfy sofa, printed in two tones on a risograph. Warning: this item is much more wordy and minimalist than other things.

Picnic Ruined: last year's comic for Retrofit in which a particularly annoying broman of four-five years ago is subjected to ~50 pages of well-deserved embarrassment.

Commission: I used to do tons of these, but now I don't have much free time, so these are limited in size and quantity, but not quality, oh no. As usual, you're welcome to suggest a theme or a word or even a question. Above is a sample commission from the previous Kickstarter.

Risks and challenges

I've been kickstarting Yellow Zines since issue 3, lately as a pre-order with a free drawing. Also, if you're going to SPX, I will happily deliver it to you in person.
