Thank you for checking out TRUMANTHOLOGY!
I'm Benjamin Truman, a writer for games + comics:
TRUMANTHOLOGY is a collection of indie comics that I wrote while working on the above projects. With all of these shorts collected under the same book cover, I can share a selection of comics that reflect my personal storytelling style.
These genre smash-ups and narrative experiments range from Historical Zombie Epics, Monstrous Horror, Deep Space Adventure and Sci-Fi Comedy. Some were contributions to crowdfunded anthologies, others were produced for comic creation challenges.
They were all completed with the help of many talented artists, giving each weird and wild tale a unique look and feel:
I’ve already received permission from the original publishers to reprint these stories.
Now, I come to you for funding.
With your generosity, I’ll be able to print, ship and distribute the book to every backer and still have a personal stash for my upcoming convention appearances this summer.
Be sure to check out the Backer Rewards that I’m offering, stay tuned for Stretch Goals, and please be sure to share this project if you like what you see.
Thanks again for checking out TRUMANTHOLOGY!

Risks and challenges
The risks are minimal. The stories are already completed, and I have permission from the original publishers to reprint them.
If any challenges arise, I have an excellent Kickstarter support network. I’ve been in many crowdfunded anthologies, and I’ve got a lot of friends who have run successful campaigns in the past.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
