"Led by a Mad Man" is a comic I've been drawing for over four years now following Daniel, Ian, Timothy, Karen, and Richard as they survive in the aftermath of a war.
A couple of my readers (who are all fantastic, by the way) have been asking for a printed version, and since they are so fantastic, they absolutely deserve it!
I have all the pages ready to print, I have a printer I used before all ready to go, which is ka-blam. Due to the length of the books, one being 230, and the other being 226, all in full color, the cost is more than I can afford anytime soon.
I'll be printing 10 books each of volume 1 and 2. Book include a bonus illustration and paper doll from me, one paper doll per book that the buyer can request, an illustration from my friend ashwara(.tumblr), and two pages of 4komas from my friend, Alex (gentlepush.tumblr).

Here are some examples of the perks.
Here's an example of a lineless, mini drawing of a character:
My illustration styles you can pick from. Backgrounds can get more complicated with a lineart background with one color and that's it.
Paper dolls will be drawn and cut by me, and painted by my good friend, Ashwara. You can pick the more full bodied ones or the tiny ones.
Any extra funding will go toward more books to be printed, shipping costs, etc.
Risks and challenges
Some risks involved might be errors during the printing process that might take time for me to correct, like finding out all the dialogues have been replaced with dirty swears,
My collaborators might not finish their part in time but other than delays, I think the process will go smoothly.
I do have a busy life with an internship, a part time job, my many other personal projects (three other webcomics, a video game, a tv show), my friends, and media I need time to consume (too much Minecraft). That might all get in the way of finishing the perks.
But considering I've drawn this comic for four years, if I care about something enough, I'll see it through to the end, so rest assured. I appreciate all the help I can get.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
