About this project
Old Man Dog tells the story of an old man who dies and gets reborn into the body of a dog... a scrappy, old dog. The first issue of our story centers around the old man as he comes to terms with being a dog and his search for answers.
Without spoiling too much, the bigger picture of Old Man Dog is ultimately a tale of good versus evil, of coming to terms with our destiny, even after death, and how our journey is never truly over.
The story is inspired by older tales that could be enjoyed by kids and adults alike, but had darker undertones to them, films such as The Labyrinth, The Dark Crystal, Watershipdown, and comics like Bone. It is my hope to bring back a resurgence of these types of fables!
Dylan Herin-Soule is the writer behind this project. He is a writer and filmmaker living in Austin, TX, who has written two feature length scripts, and is currently writing his first novel.
Fabio Guimarães is the illustrator for Old Man Dog. Fabio has worked as an illustrator for numerous comics, including Eclipse and Child Number Four.
Jessica Jimerson is the colorist and letterer for our comic, she has worked on over thirty-three different comics (including the "Creepy Scarlett" series, "Eclipse" and "Cradle of Magic").
This will be the third time Fabio and Jessica have teamed up to do a comic, and their art fits perfectly with the tone of the story.
The story for issue one is already written, but we need to raise enough money to be able to pay our amazing artists to bring this story to life! We're only asking for enough money to complete the remaining pages of the planned 24 page comic and to fulfill the backer rewards!
Once completed we plan on taking our comic and finding a publisher to help tell the rest of the story, which is why helping us fund this first issue is the most crucial step in Old Man Dog's journey!
Risks and challenges
Sometimes unexpected things happen, but we are dedicated to finishing the comic as soon as possible once we are successfully funded! We wanna get this story out to you right away!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
