THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO BACKED THE COMIC!
If you missed the deadline, it's available to buy online here.
For the last few months I've been working on this anti-army "recruitment leaflet". I originally intended it to be a way of bringing together all my military themed illustrations and insults but it's kind of expanded into this sprawling tirade against the armed forces and war in general.
It's going to be a 20 page concertina fold booklet. On the inside is all the detailed "information", flippant diagrams and small, semi-obscene comic strips. Whereas the outside folds out into a 1.5m Bayeux Tapestry style version of the Iraq/Afghan war.
It's kind of hard to fit the whole thing on here, but here's generally what each side looks like (from far away):
The one problem with that is that it's now so long I'll need to use a specialist printer to have it printed and it's going to cost more money than I physically own. That's why I've started this Kickstarter campaign to see if you might be interested in putting your name down for a pre-order or maybe a t-shirt or a print or something. The comic is ready to go, I just need some of that pesky money to make it happen. Your pesky money to be precise.
If you've seen any of my work before you may be familiar with a few of pieces but at least 80% of it is made up of new stuff, so you shouldn't get too hideously bored.
T-shirt sizes go from S - 3XL apart from colour t-shirt which are S - XXL.
You'll be sent a survey after the deadline in which you can specify which design, size and colour you want, same for the prints etc.
Stickers will be transparent, I'm just waiting on some to be delivered shortly. One set with the logo black, the other white.
If more money comes in than is strictly necessary I'll use the surplus to order a larger print run and properly promote the comic. But in addition the following stretch goals will be available:
£1150 - UNLOCKED - Every physical order gets a couple of Army themed pin badges based on designs in the book. Any reward level over £30 gets five badges.
£1500 UNLOCKED - Free die-cut sticker with every physical order. SAS - "Who Cares Who Wins" embroidered patch available at any reward level for an extra £6.
£1750 UNLOCKED - Launch exhibition in London with an invite for every backer.
£2200 LOCKED - All physical backers get a four page B&W preview of my next comic. Every deluxe edition gets two different die-cut stickers.
Risks and challenges
