About this project
We sincerely thank you for joining us in the creation of Tiki P.I.!
Tiki P.I. is a comic book made with a passion. Each black and white issue is hand-drawn in India ink using pens and brushes on heavy weight paper, hand-lettered, and (up to now) hand assembled. But we’re ready to take Tiki into the future with a trade paperback collection of issues 1-5 (as well as pin-ups, annotations, and production sketches). Issues 1, 2, and 3 are completed and have already sold out two printings (thank you, fans!). Issue 4 is underway, and Issue 5 and on deck!
We wouldn’t be here without fans like you! The first three issues of Tiki P.I. have been mailed all over the world, from the beaches of California to snowy villages in Switzerland.
We love that you love reading Tiki’s adventures as much as we love creating them. When we set out to make Tiki P.I., we wanted to create a comic for young and old that combined the 1960s cool of shows like Hawaii 5-0 and The Avengers with the slap-stick fun of the classic Saturday morning cartoons that we love.
In these pages you’ll find Tiki P.I. and his monosyllabic sidekick Hunter getting wrapped up with the Voodoo Queen Zora, evil scientist (and giant bird-man) Dr. Tanaka, a werewolf that crashes a dog show, and many more eccentric characters.
We’ve set up some great goals with kick-butt incentives for you! We’re proud to be offering a limited edition pressing of an original Tiki P.I. theme song recorded by Belgium’s own surf rock band Speedball JR (featured on MTV!) Thank you again for your support, fan letters, and willingness to join us in creation of Tiki P.I. It’s hearing from you guys and getting your support that makes this so rewarding.
