In a world full of weirdos, super villains and alien invasions, the city of Meadowlark is eager to have a super hero on their side, their very own weirdo! Enter Commander Canine, a pancake loving, bikini brief wearing, dog-man. His reluctant partner on the police force, Rosa Espinoza is an exceptional officer whose career is being stifled by a system of discrimination.
Commander Canine is my first attempt at a full-issue comic book. I undertook all the creative duties on this project: writing the script, drawing the pencils & inks, colours, it's even hand-lettered! So it's safe to say this was a passion project for me and I've loved every second. Now is the best part, sharing it with you!
Hope you enjoy it! Please sign up to my mailing list if you'd like to keep up to date with my creative projects.

Risks and challenges
Why a kickstarter? Well, self-publishing a comic book is a big undertaking and there are lots of costs involved. The funds collected will go towards printing and promotion of the book, while also covering the cost of art supplies used, and serve as a small bit of remuneration for the hundreds of hours spent in its creation.
There are a few pages yet to be coloured but I expect them to be finished by the end of August. Everything else is ready to go so the only thing left is to get the campaign over the line! Prints, tees, original inks & comics will be ready to ship a few weeks after the campaign successfully finishes and custom artworks will be completed by December of this year.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
