Fuzzbuquet is an all ages fantasy story about a monster with a very large heart and a very small brain. In the previous issues, we met Fuzzbuquet- a lovable beast with big dreams of becoming a cheese-maker. Unfortunately for Fuzzbuquet, no one would buy his fuzzy cheese. Desperate to fulfill his dreams, Fuzzbuquet decides to finance his business by setting out on a quest to slay a dragon.
In this third chapter of our story we find Fuzzbuquet and his new friend Soggie Biscotti in a fight for their lives against all manner of evil baked goods. Meanwhile, Fuzzbuquet's dragon slaying rival, Parcy Plundergas, makes his way towards the dragons lair.
Lucky for Fuzzbuquet, this issue introduces a new addition to the Fuzzbuquet world: Mrs. Nibbienew! An old friend of Soggi's with information that will turn Fuzzbuquet's adventure on its head.
And unlucky for Parcy Plundergas, this issue sees him come to blows with the fiendishly forged Axe-Blaster Neon!
The story of Fuzzbuquet draws its inspiration from a wide variety of sources to include 80's/90's Saturday morning cartoons and Arthurian legends. Packed with slapstick gags and potty humor, Fuzzbuquet is reminiscent of the gross pop culture of the 80's and 90's like Garbage Pail Kids and Ren and Stimpy as well as the over-the-top heroics (and stupidity) of shows like He-Man and the Thundercats.
The art of the of the comic is done using traditional materials such as pencil, ink, markers and airbrush. In creating Fuzzbuquet, I wanted to try and evoke some of the techniques I saw in cartoons and comics when I was growing up. Ultimately I think it gives the comic a unique look and feel that is very different from most digitally colored works. This is the third issue of the ongoing Fuzzbuquet story. With your help, I hope to continue publishing the adventures of Fuzzbuquet annually as Fuzzbuquet continues his ill fated quest.

Risks and challenges
At the time of this writing, Fuzzbuquet #3 has 20 pages of artwork completed with only four more pages of artwork needed to complete it. I hope to have the book in your hands by December 1st or earlier. Because the book is so close to being finished I see very little chance of any production issues arising. It is possible that the printer may take longer than estimated but I have built in plenty of buffer time so that you will still get your comics/rewards on time or earlier. Having self published two issues before this one gives me the necessary experience to be successful in all facets of fulfillment. Pledge with confidence! Fuzzbuquet will be offering you stool softening cheese in no time!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
