About

Hello! My name is Ryan Smith, cartoonist behind fantasy comic series Accursed Dragon and scifi epic Banished. My FIRST cartooning project, however, began In 1999 with a simple humor webcomic called Funny Farm.

The best way to describe Funny Farm is a slice of life series where some characters are cartoon animals for no reason. 

These characters all live together under one roof. Ront and Mewn's roof, to be exact. They're owners of a boarding home and due to various circumstances all these other folks decide to move in and put down roots. There are personality clashes, a bit of stalking and the occasional kidnap and rescue, but that helps bond these strangers into becoming friends. Family.

Quirky misadventures are the least of their problems once the corporate despots, artificial intelligent megalomaniacs and masked terrorists begin showing their faces. A variety of perils await our protagonists as the stories progress and evolve.

The tone is light, but with just a little bit of action and drama to keep you on your toes. All of it presented in newspaper style black & white dailies; Sunday color features.

After officially ending on August 30th, 2008 very little in the way of printed material was ever produced. That is what this Kickstarter is hopefully going to correct as we self publish the first mega collection of Funny Farm!

Our book will be 300 pages, full of as many comics as can possibly fit (ranging in material from 1999 to 2001) and printed on glossy paper stock. 

Here are what they will appear as:

We'll be doing a small print run; that's why only $3,000 is requested. No frills or extras. If we surpass our goal, almost all the money will go towards making the book even better.

(I say "almost" because the rest would go towards STRETCH GOAL bonuses!)


Interested in including our Accursed Dragon and/or Banished books to your order? Follow these instructions:

We are really excited to bring this Funny Farm collection to you early winter! Thank you for checking us out!

Risks and challenges

We've successfully printed three Accursed Dragon books, one volume of Banished and a Banished comic book on time; no complications. We will be using a printing company in North America, so little to no delays with customs are anticipated. If problems arise, everyone who pledges will be notified.

As with any campaign of this nature the postage is expensive. The costs ($5 Canadian, $15 US, $20 International) involved help go towards a swift delivery and tracking (when available).
Note: International orders will still take about a month for delivery.
