When I'm not working on my long-running (and thrice kickstarted) series, Sam and Fuzzy... I like to draw pet comics! A bunch of 'em have been widely shared online. Maybe you've seen one before and thought to yourself, "Who made this thing?" It was this guy, right here!

VOTE DOG collects all my pet comics into a slick stand-alone 100+ page book. Most of them have never appeared in print before. A bunch of them were made exclusively for this book! In VOTE DOG, you'll get comics featuring...

And IMPORTANT EDUCATIONAL CONTENT!

VOTE DOG is available in three increasingly opulent flavors:

A DRM-free digital PDF version is included with every print edition
A DRM-free digital PDF version is included with every print edition

Pick from a standard softcover edition, a fancy hardcover edition, or a Deluxe Artist Edition of the hardcover that includes an original signed drawing by me on the inside cover!

WHAT IF WE RAISE EXTRA MONEY?
If we do, we'll make cool enhancements to the books and other rewards! Here are some of the fun bonuses we'd love to tackle:

ARE THERE OTHER REWARDS TO GET, TOO?

You bet there are!

GILDED versions of our book tiers include the GILDED BONUS PACK: three Kickstarter-exclusive mini prints, plus a very special VOTE DOG enamel pin.

THE LIBRARIAN and COMPLETIONIST tiers will get you either some or all of my comedy adventure series, Sam and Fuzzy! THE LIBRARIAN includes the three most recent hardcover omnibuses (the complete current storyline), and THE COMPLETIONIST includes the two prequel series omnibuses as well. (If you are an existing reader and only need to get certain specific S&F softcover or hardcover books, check out the add-on section below!)

THE COMMISSIONER tier includes an original custom drawn 8.5 x 11" marker illustration of up to 2 pets, characters, people, or combinations thereof. THE OVERSIZED COMMISSIONER gets you an 11 x 14" illustration of up to 4! This is a pet-themed Kickstarter, so I look forward to doing some pet portraits... but I'm happy to do other kinds of pieces, too! I'm flexible.

THE (PET) CAMEO tier scores your pet (or the pet of a friend or family member) a special appearance in one of the comics in VOTE DOG! All species of critter are welcome, be they furry, feathered, scaly, or... other. THE (HUMAN) CAMEO, on the other hand, gets you an appearance in the book, in a speaking role.


ADD-ON ITEMS

Would you like to get one of my critter-related t-shirts? Or any specific Sam and Fuzzy softcover or hardcover books? How about extra copies of VOTE DOG, for friends or family members? Any of the items in the chart below can be added to your pledge à la carte! Just pick the reward tier you want first, then add the total value of the add-ons you'd like to get on top of your pledge. When the campaign is over, we'll ask you which shirts/books you wanted to buy with that extra money. Easy!


OK, SO TELL ME ABOUT THESE BOOKS

VOTE DOG is a stand-alone collection of all my pet-themed comics -- President Dog, Baker the Corgi, Butcher the Cat, Buddy the Goldfish, and some new characters as well! There are over 100 pages of comics and cartoons in this sucker, all printed in full colour. You can see a few of the more internet famous ones by clicking the image below.

The bulk of these comics have never appeared in print before, and some were made exclusively for this book! A handful of them were in previous Sam and Fuzzy books in black and white, but appear here with updated art and full colouring. Others have only appeared in the IS IT FOOD minibook I sold at exclusively at conventions in 2017, but are bigger and glossier here.

VOTE DOG is available in Softcover, Hardcover and Deluxe Artist Edition Hardcover forms. The hardcover versions have special silver ink highlights. And If you're also a Sam and Fuzzy fan, I'm happy to report: both versions of VOTE DOG are designed to match my previous softcover and hardcover books on your shelf. They're the same shape, and have complimentary spine designs.

WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?
Most of our budget will go towards printing VOTE DOG, freighting the books to our warehouse, and shipping them out to you. The rest covers the manufacturing costs of our other rewards, Kickstarter fees and taxes. This is my fourth book project, so we're very familiar with the process!

WHO ARE YOU, ANYWAY?
I'm Sam Logan! I've spent the last 16 years drawing Sam and Fuzzy, the long-form comedy adventure comic in which Baker, President Dog, and most of these other critters first appeared. This is my 4th Kickstarter project, after the Sam and Fuzzy Omnibus, Sam and Fuzzy Missing Inaction, and the Underground RPG. You may also know me as the designer of many a Topatoco t-shirt, one of the writers on the Invader Zim comic, or one of the many illustrators featured in To Be Or Not to Be and Romeo and/or Juliet.

Make That Thing is a production and fulfillment agency for crowdfunded projects. They helped me with all three of my previous projects and did a great job all three times.

OK, THIS ALL SOUNDS GOODThen LET'S DO THIS! President Dog thanks you for your support. Here we go!

Risks and challenges

I'm making this book with the help of Make That Thing -- the same folks who helped me successfully manufacture and distribute my previous three kickstarters. There are a number of potential setbacks that can crop up in book production, but we know them well, since we've been making books together for over a decade. We've got reliable printing partners, we have an awesome fulfillment team, and are ready for anything!
