The Adventures of Super Penguin is a comic book about a child's imagination and the secrets of his toys who are mysteriously alive.

NOW ANY PLEDGE WILL GET YOU A DOWNLOAD OF ISSUE 1. EVEN A DOLLAR! PASS IT ON!

We are almost done with issue number one of six. 

The saga of Super Penguin began about five years ago when my son, Grey, took his favorite toy - a stuffed penguin - and started to play. Since then, we've taken Super Penguin along on many fantastic adventures. 

The story is semi-autobiographical and close to our hearts. It's about a living stuffed animal named Agate, his friends and family, as well as his foes. 

Super Penguin does his best to protect the Twin Cities from those who would bring chaos and destruction. He doesn't understand the strange mystery behind his sentience. In fact, he doesn't understand much at all, except that he loves Grey and his friends, and must protect the innocent from danger. 

Super Penguin has a cast of companions, and together they work to rid the city of those things they think are bad. Our heroes are also on a quest to solve the mystery of their own origin. But really, this plot is all a bit of a red herring, as the story is actually about Grey's adorable imagination.

The setting is the budding metropolis of Minneapolis, MN (with a sprinkling of Saint Paul). Local readers might even recognize some of their favorite landmarks!

We're very excited to make this comic a success. The long game is to successfully publish this and other comic stories already in the works. We're grateful for a platform like this to get the ball rolling financially. 

Main Goal:

$15,000

This will provide us with the inertia to get issues 1-6 made and the collected graphic novel! It's a conservative goal. The more subscriptions, the better.

Estimated delivery: 1 issue per month, Nov 1st, 2013(Grey's 11th birthday)-April 1, 2014 

Here is a breakdown based on 300 subscribers.

Thanks for your support! 

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

The main risk of this project is that there is not enough money raised for the artist's time. Six issues of a comic is a tremendous amount of work. If the project goal is met however, it should be attainable.
