Apama The Undiscovered Animal is an ongoing comic book series about an ice cream truck driver in Cleveland who discovers the spirit force of the most savage beast mankind has never known!
The volume one collection, which compiled issues 1-5, was picked up nationally by Diamond Distribution. It is offered here too, as part of the Volume 2 release. Check out some of these reviews!
Volume 2 is more than 160 pages, and is packed with six—YEAH SIX!—complete issues of the mane-man’s never-before-seen adventures! We decided to debut this set like a Netflix series — all at once, and Kickstarter backers get it first!
We feel like we've reached new creative heights, and can't wait to share these wild tales with you! You’ll meet some new additions to an ever-expanding gallery of rogues, and become reacquainted with some old favorites. #reginaproblems

If you're new to Apama, we have several rewards that also include Vol. 1. Here's the previous Kickstarter campaign video to help get you up to speed.
And now some new stuff!
NOTHING LIKE VAUDEVILLE HORROR SHOW MUSICAL in issues 10-11. Introducing the TAP DANCE KILLER!
Our main character, Ilyia Zjarsky, joins a musical theatre troupe and gets into a brand of trouble like you ain't never seen. The musical is horror show about villains in a surreal land of vaudeville, and it's a REAL show. A new cast recording (unrelated to this kickstarter campaign) is underway, and can be yours on CD or digital download as part of the rewards.
We got softcovers, hardcovers, blu-rays, DVDs, CDs, Mp3s, and...
APAMA SHIRTS! This is that softest-shirt-in-your-drawer kind of material. They're listed individually in the rewards, but you can also add $20 to any order and a shirt will be included. There will be a survey before orders go out to get your exact size.
The idea for Apama sprung from our award-winning feature-length independent film Hero Tomorrow. You can add Hero Tomorrow in your choice of Blu-ray (The 2015 Cut) or DVD (Original) by adding $12 to your pledge. We will send you a survey before shipping to make sure you get the one you want.
It bears repeating—your support is critical to our continuing success and we truly appreciate every contribution that is made! And one of our proudest accomplishments so far is the growing sense of community in the burgeoning ranks of the ApamaNation from fans and friends who have supported us online, in stores, and at conventions!
So join up now and help the brown-n-tan avenger continue to stalk the streets of Cleveland!
