About

Brainslug is an epic comedy about two kids and their homicidal pet bunny. It is a completely independent graphic novel presented in a unique style that is a hybrid blend of traditional newspaper comic strips and full-length, story-driven graphic novels.

Brainslug began as an online web-comic series which currently consists of over 250 pages over four story-lines.  

The first of the story-lines was successfully printed as a book with the help of Kickstarter in 2014 and the second book in the series, "Road Trip", is now ready to print as well, with the goal of this campaign to fund the print run of the book. All funds raised are to pay for the books, other rewards and the shipping of everything you! 

All pages in the book, from the original web-comic, have been retouched, edited and now feature full-color. It also features many all-new pages as well.

Risks and challenges

Because of the nature of this campaign and the fact that the book is complete, there are no barriers to this campaign being successful, to speak of.

Except, of course, not reaching the goal for it. I've successfully delivered on the Kickstarter campaign for the first book and am confident that I can do it again. I've also saved a baseline amount of the finances needed ahead of time to pay of any unforeseen expenses, if they were to turn up.
