Hello.

I'm Max Huffman, a cartoonist in Carrboro, NC. I just finished a comic book called PLAGUERS INT'L. Until now, I've been self-publishing my work, but current resources and means make a 20-page full color 7" x 9" comic too ambitious for me to print on my own.

What is PLAGUERS INT'L?

It's a loud, fast comic-shaped comic, with elements of all three genres: madcap romp, slapdash genre pastiche and relationship disaster. A panel or two might be unsafe for work. Plot details? If you insist:

Swirving Wildley is the newest member of the world's most beloved extranational paramilitary death squad. Movement Salon is the leader of a wasteland guerrilla junk cult. They have a long day. I don't know what else to tell you!

Is there a reward tier where I can get a limited edition 5" x 7" archival-quality inkjet print?

Yes! The print looks like this:

What's the money for?

I've been planning on using PrintNinja, although I'd love to find a comparable, more ethical offset alternative. (Hit me up!) The quote I've received is $900 or so to print the books and around $150 for shipping. Then Kickstarter takes either 8-10 percent, about $100. The last ~$50 is wiggle room against any contingencies and shipping supplies.

Oh, okay! One comic book, please!

Great! Thank you!

 

Risks and challenges

I've had two prior experiences with Kickstarter. First, when I was 16 I crowdfunded a new laptop in exchange for $5 sketches, which turned out to be way, way too many sketches, many of which I failed to deliver in a timely manner.

Then as a senior in college some friends and I funded the XTRA LARGE WEAKLY ANNUAL, a big unwieldy comics anthology which was by most metrics a success and is still something I'm proud of.

So, mixed bag!

This project is real straightforward and I'm confident it can go smoothly. Other than the cover, the book is finished. Overseas offset printing is uncharted territory, but PrintNinja seems user-friendly enough. No bonkers extras or stretch goals. Let's do it.
