Afterschool Special is my first full length graphic novella. It is a romance concerning two teenage outsiders navigating a suburban landscape through nostalgia and personal dilemmas. You can read the book online on my blog at www.davekiersh.blogspot.com
My previous book of short stories, Dirtbags Mallchicks and Motorbikes, won a 2008 Xeric Grant. I have been writing, illustrating and self-publishing my own lo-fi comics since 1998.
I am hoping to publish a quality print edition of Afterschool Special (approximately 120 pages) with funds earned through this Kickstarter campaign.
Upon the completion of my funding goal, the book will be printed in the summer of 2012. Thank you for your interest and support.
* Just added another reward. If you bid $80 and up, I will send you an original piece of 6X8 inch artwork along with two books. Those who already pledged this amount or more will receive one of these pieces as well. For samples, look here:
