In his seventh of nine lives, the legendary pirate Captain Kitty is called upon for a dangerous mission: to steal back King Gorilla's treasure from the scruffiest scoundrel of the Seven Seas, Old Dirt Dog. Along for the Journey is Kitty's loyal crew of colorful rogues, a new recruit with something to prove and a stowaway with an attitude. Heists, fights, high seas adventure, hilarious high jinks and cut throat danger await at every turn of the page...
AND IT ALL RHYMES!!!
FUNDING GOAL REACHED!
Huge thanks to all of our backers and Kickstarter!!!
Hello!! My name is Tal Renfro and I am the writer and illustrator of The Swashbuckling Adventures of Captain Kitty. My entire life I have dreamed of having my own unique gang of cartoon characters to tell exciting stories about. After 5 years of working in TV, I decided it was time to set out on my own and do it.
I am now putting the finishing touches on the first volume and I couldn't be happier to share it with you. The book is full color, 116 pages and written in the playful yet heartfelt spirit of poets like Dr. Seuss, Shel Silverstein and Bill Shakespeare. I believe this graphic novel has something for everyone and will be twisting tongues, giving goosebumps and bringing the belly laughs for years to come...
...but that's not all!! Because you're getting in at the ground level, you have the opportunity to snag exclusive Kickstarter rewards!

Risks and challenges
My goal is to fund, print and ship this book, along with all rewards, to my backers before Christmas. I have a few pages to finish coloring between now and the end of my campaign. I am confident I will have them done so that when my campaign is finished processing I will be able to immediately get this to my printer, turned around and into people's hands as quickly as possible. It's a tight schedule but I have planned everything out to the best of my abilities and will do whatever I can to meet my goal. I will be completely transparent and forthcoming with all of my supporters about any setbacks or delays.
My long term goal is to build Captain Kitty into an independent, creator owned entertainment brand of the highest quality. It all begins right here with this book. There will be plenty of challenges and obstacles along the road but I couldn't be more excited about it and determined to make it happen.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
