Mongrel City Rumble is a comic I have been working on for the better part of the last six months. I originally had released it as a single issue under the name Cocaine Pet Shop and it just wasn't right. I saw this as something that could reach ridiculous heights of creativity and fun and it didn't have the presentation or feel it deserved. I became determined to make this one hell of a book and so i did. I reached out to a team of some really awesome artist that could really take my ideas and bring them to life with as much creativity as possible and what I got was so much more than I bargained for.

Here's the breakdown. I'm trying to raise $3800 to fund this project. $1900 is to pay the creators. This includes pencils, colors, and letters. The rest is to cover printing cost, and prints along with shipping. We plan to this money to lay a foundation for something we are proud of and we cant do it without the support of each and everyone of you. We constantly look at what things make some of the best comics on the shelves and strive to achieve the top. Be the start of something amazing with us.

Risks and challenges

Mongrel City Rumble has become something we are all very passionate about and because we are we sacrifice a lot of time, money, and work on it. Money is the biggest problem. Its hard to make a book with a solid team of people who deliver quality work, and a level of professionalism you need to achieve a product worth selling. This is where we meet you half way. With your promise to help us fund our project, we promise to never ask for more than what is necessary to get the ball rolling, and to always deliver 110% in our project and not settle for anything less than our best work. Each issue is a hurdle and with your help we can make this an ongoing series and continue to do what we love, MAKE COMICS!
