We're raising money to fund a bloody hilarious graphic novel entitled Sharkasaurus written by Spencer Estabrooks and illustrated by Tyler Jenkins. Sharkasaurus a horror comedy that pits creationists and paleontologists against the prehistoric Sharkasaurus.

The story follows a pair of star-crossed lovers; the rebellious emo son of Paleontologist falls for promiscuous daughter of a widowed creationist. After they accidentally awaken a prehistoric tunneling dino-shark, they must evolve their ideological difference or succumb to the inevitable jaws of Sharkasaurus.

Set on the Heavenly Holes creationist themed golf course, the story is full of satire, incredible death scenes and epic one-liners. The characters, although stereotypes, are flawed but cheer-able heroes marching forward towards enlightenment and death.

The theme of Sharkasaurus is evolution. All central characters go through a transformation or metamorphosis. When faced with might and awesome power of Sharkasaurus stubborn characters are forced to work together, adapt and become the best versions of themselves before they are killed in an terrifyingly hideous way.

Sharkasaurus is death. The ultimate inevitability that stalks all men and women. It is the fear of death that gives the characters the will and desire to change, but the consequence of that change is death

EXCLUSIVE PERKS

MEGAFAN-ASAURUS $100

We've changed this perk since the campaign launched, but its for the better. Now instead of just having your name on the back cover, we're building old school comic ad. Purchasing this perk will give you 2 options 

1) We'll use your name in a fake ad (Like X-ray Specs or Sea Monkeys) 

2) We'll make an ad for your business and put it there! 

This is a pretty awesome way to be apart of this project!

EASTER EGG-ASAURUS $100

We'll use your name or company name as an Easter Egg somewhere in the panels. It could be a bottle of beer, a brand of tire, or an pack of smokes. 

COLLECTASAURUS $150

Who wouldn't want a piece of what will become a classic? (Along with Sharknado, Zombeavers, Lavalantula) Secure a page of original inked art by Tyler Jenkins

MINI DEALERSAURUS & DEALERSAURUS

*A dealer only perk. You get an adspace in the back of the comic, a poster and you choose 5-10 comics.

This is perfect for those retailers who wish to have some out of the extraordinary stocked in their store. It's also great for those stores that would like some extra advertising on a global scale. Your store's advert seen worldwide!

Risks and challenges

We've done our homework on pitfalls and problems. We've kept our perks simple, accounted for shipping large objects, and have budgeted 11% to cover anything we overlooked.

I believe we can deliver this by November, but we've given ourselves until January to finish the project.

This is my first time writing a graphic novel, but working with Tyler on the project has been great. He's read the story and is excited to get to work on the project.
