This story chronicles the internal growth of Isaac, a queer freakazoid who blossoms into creative expression through discovering dance music culture. Isaac and his band of clowny freakshow friends transform our culture through music and rebellion. The book explores difficult, controversial themes through humor and vibrant characters. With your help, this unique and vibrant creation will be accessible to a broad audience of thinkers. With the dance music culture ever growing, this amusing and inspiring tale will be a raging success! The first book is 66 pages, complete and ready for publication. 

Your contributions will be used to self-publish a paperback, 6.75"x10.25" full-color book.

The campaign ends on October 29, 2013.

Risks and challenges

The challenge comes with promotion. Once the book is printed, I will be touring comic book conventions on the west coast, such as Bent-Con, the LGBT comic convention in California and the local Portland Comic-Con. Luckily, Portland is home of many DIY graphic novel creators who have created networks such as the Independent Publishing Resource Center.

"Rites of Dionysus" will be distributed on the internet, through social media and in local bookstores. The book will arrive in local outlets, such as Floating World Comics and Counter Media, among others.
