Hi! My name is Jimmy Furlong and I am the writer / co-creator along with artist Andrew Hartmann of the Shit Flingers: Bestiary a new six part medieval anthology series about a team of anthropomorphic monster fighting monkeys. 

Shit Flingers: Bestiary #1 - #6 collects together 30 original comic stories, featuring some of the hottest new talent in comics! We are looking to raise £2500 to help us complete Issue #1 and bring a physical copy of the book into existence.

Shit Flingers by Iain Buchanan
Shit Flingers by Iain Buchanan
                                            
 

For their part in a terrible crime, a group of 15th Century French soldiers are forever cast out from the world of men when they are each cursed, transformed into a different species of ape by a powerful witch.  

Captured by The Inquisition, they are smuggled to Rome and coerced into the Bestiary; a secret organisation located deep beneath what will eventually become the Sistine Chapel.

Led by their new employer, a young Thomas De Torquemada, they begin a new life fighting occult monsters, demons and the heretical enemies of the Church.

Shit Flingers: Bestiary chronicles their adventures from 1453 to 1584.

These initial six issues are just the beginning for the Flingers. We have a whole slate of stories and ideas for them that are going to take you to some incredibly dark and hilarious places.  

Besides a whole heap of One Shots in the pipeline by a plethora of hot indie artists and writers, we have a further six issue run called Shit Flingers: Fealty which picks up where Bestiary ends and moves the action on another hundred years.

If we are successful and continue to grow as a series we have plans to keep moving through time in one hundred years blocks as the Flingers evolve and grow, and you faithful supporters can be along for the ride.

Each art print is A4 and measures 210 × 297 millimeters or 8.27 × 11.69 inches.

As part of the Grubby Mitts and the four Chabot reward tiers we are introducing an art giveaway to anyone who pledges at these levels. In a nutshell if you are one those lucky backers to have pledged at this level you will automatically be eligable to recieve a portion of any left over artwork from the campaign. If you pledge at Chabot level you will recieve 2 pages of art to every 1 at the Grubby Mitts level up to a maximum of five pages per backer. Easy. 

                                                                                                            

Kickstarter will help us fund Issue #1's printing costs, to pay off our existing entitlements to the contributors and give us a jump start on the art for issue #2. The art for Issue #1 is almost complete and then we will be ready to print! We have been putting this project together for the last year, polishing and crafting it, so it can be as close to perfect as possible.  

Just to give a small taste of what's to come, below are some examples of art from future Issues of Shit Flingers: Bestiary.

Risks and challenges

With any project such as this there are always going to be risks. But we have put a lot of time and effort into making sure we keep that to the very minimum. The art is complete and the printer has been sourced.

With the addition of hitting extra stretch goals come the possibility of a time delay, but again we have factored that into the campaign. All involved are professionals and are experienced at working to tight deadlines.
