About

 Freaks N Squeaks is about the lives of mice that live in a little boy's bedroom starring two intelligent teenage girls mice. The mice date, hold elections, travel through time, fight appendix-eating zombies, encounter cyborgs... you know, typical mouse stuff.

The very first Freaks N Squeaks strip (October, 2002). The art gets better. I promise.

Honestly, it's very hard to describe FNS in brief. The strip has been running since 2003, written and drawn by me,  the Marvelous Patric (Lewandowski). The cast is Simpsons-esque. It usually focuses on Ginny and Janis, two teen girls, but there's also boy genius, Al, Ginny's little sister, Janie, the Schrewish kid Schmoikel, his friend Chuck, plus former Prez Tex, former Prez Obamarama, and current Prez Blump.  

Tex, the George W. Bush analog.
Blump, the Trump analog. Yes, he's a potato. Told you the art got better.

It's easiest to say Freaks N Squeaks is a satire of anything and everything. It follows whatever I'm interested in, which is often politics and sarcastic humor. There are over 2,000 strips and there have been some books printed over the past 17 years, but never anything consistent and there's a lot of the newer material that's never been in print and older material out of print.

That's where you come in.

The current Ginny and Janis models.
Al is a lover of iStuff. But he's also really smart. I swear.

The goal of this campaign is simple: collect all the Freaks N Squeaks comics (so far) into uniform books so that future books will also use a consistent design language. This is meant to be the definitive collection of Freaks N Squeaks. We're going to print all FIVE books at once instead of running different campaigns for each volume. It's a one-stop-shop! 

Plus, EXCLUSIVE TO THIS CAMPAIGN, we're going to have a ONE VOLUME HARDCOVER! This is the thing for the loyal fans and collectors out there. Just like music fans will buy the vinyl, this edition promises to be something special to show off. 

Ginny's little sister, Janie.

Here are the core details:

  • FIVE PAPERBACK BOOKS: Each volume is around 120ish pages, with all color strips printed in color for the first time EVER. Each book will be standard comic book size (6.5x10). 
  • Also, printed in color for the first time EVER, the original 3 page comic, "Of Mice and Bernoulli." 
  • EBOOK VERSIONS: If you aren't into dead trees, you can get the digital versions of each book. Plus, each print version comes with its electronic sibling. 
  • HARDCOVER: Instead of 5 paperbacks, you get everything in 1 book. Of course, it comes with the ebook version! The hardcover will be slightly larger in stature at 8.5 x 11.

FAQ:

  • Q: Do I have to buy all 5 books? A: No! In an effort to be clever, there are packages for people who just want to try out FNS for the first time. Also, if you have been a reader all these years and have purchased previous books, I've worked really hard so you can just get the stuff you're missing...
  • Q: How do these editions fit with previous editions (The big blue book, the pink book, and the yellow book?) A: If you have the big blue book (Pretty Much Everything Vol.1) that would now be books 1 and 2. Sad Little Life is in book 3. The yellow book (the rarest) is in part of book 3 and part of book 4. Most of book 4 has never seen print, and all of book 5 is new to print.
Schmoikel and Chuck.
Sometimes I set up the joke in one strip....
...and the joke pays off in a later strip.

Freaks N Squeaks has always worked best when read en masse. This campaign seeks to be the ultimate Freaks N Squeaks reading experience. It will collect all the FNS comics so far and help chart the course for years to come. Because, yes, there will be more strips.

There will always be more Freaks N Squeaks.

Thank you! I love you all!

-The Marvelous Patric

Risks and challenges

The only work to be done on this project is finishing the prepress which is well underway. It is entirely possible the books will be shipped before the holidays, but I'm saying January 2020 just in case.
