Strange Kids Club Magazine #5 (Canceled)
Strange Kid and his pals, Lando and Orwell, are transported into their favorite Saturday morning cartoon: Bronarr, Space Barbarian!
HELLO! You're probably wondering what this is all about. My name is RONDAL and I'm what you'd call a "creative instigator." What the hell does that mean? Well, I create things. Things like this comic, which is also a humor magazine... it's sort of like a "turducken" but instead of a chicken stuffed into a duck which is then stuffed into a turkey, it's a comic jam-packed with strange science-fantasy adventure and crammed with funny articles that parody 80s and 90s culture—we're talking 60 PAGES OF FULL COLOR, OFF-COLOR FUN!
Inspired by humor and comic magazines like MAD, Heavy Metal, Cracked, OINK, Brain Damage, FOOM and so many others, each issue of Strange Kids Club Magazine aims to deliver the most absurd brand of entertainment our feeble minds can conceive brought to life by the most amazing independent artists and writers. Past issues have featured Brent Engstrom (Garbage Pail Kids, Wacky Packages), David Hartman (Transformers: Prime), Jason Edmiston (Topps, Hasbro) and James Groman (Madballs, Barnyard Commandos).

After defeating the demonic Deadly Ruxpin last issue, Strange Kid and friends settle down to watch their favorite Saturday morning cartoon show, BRONARR: SPACE BARBARIAN. But when their snacks are stolen by a sneaky squirrel, the kids accidentally end up transported into the show. The only hope they have of getting back to their reality is to help Bronarr defeat his nemesis, the diabolical Lord Gammax, and save the universe!
Michael Anderson, Christopher Bacon, Glen Brogan, Joe Deagnon, Scotty Floronic, Adam Frazier, Łukasz Kowalczuk, Mike LaRiccia, John MacLeod, Luke McGarry, Jared Morgan and Caleb Zammit with special thanks to Brian Allen, Adam Davis, Sean Ferguson, Patrick Kain, Chris MacDonald, Vincent Rushkin, Hauke Scheer, Jeff Solway, Horror Decor, The Millipede and Monsters & Metal for their contributions and support on this project!
You've no doubt heard this one before, but it's true.
Self-publishing is expensive. I mean REALLY expensive, especially when you're dealing with multiple artists, writers, animators, toy makers—the whole shebang—all of which require upfront costs. And that's just to get things started, then there's printing, distribution marketing... point is, Kickstarter let's us receive the financial and community support we need to get an indie publication like this off the ground and into the world.
Add these rewards to any backer level by increasing your pledge by the amount shown—only for $30 Tier or higher.
- Click the 'Manage Your Pledge' button at the top of this page
- Increase your pledge by the amount shown above (ie. if you're original pledge was $30 and you want a t-shirt, your total pledge should add up to $50)

Risks and challenges
We have all the material 65% ready to go, the bulk that's left being the artwork, coloring and lettering of the main comic. Aside from that we'll need to collect all the ads and set them into the magazine. Roughly we're looking at 2-3 weeks of preproduction after the campaign is complete.
At any given time there are 150+ comic projects on Kickstarter. That's 150+ people vying for your support and for press coverage---it may be called crowdfunding, but that's a crowded stage. It's crucial that we get the word out about this project and we need your help to make that happen. Share this page on your Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, Pinterest---is that all of them?---profile pages and let others know how freaking amazing this magazine is!
Printing and Shipping
This is usually the part of the project that takes the longest. Because of their phenomenal pricing and print quality we prefer to use Print Ninja. The downside to this is everything is printed in China (because that's where ninjas live now) so it always takes a bit for the magazines pass through customs and finally make it back to us.
After that, all the rewards have to be sorted, inspected, packaged and shipped... also a time-consuming process. Again, nothing we can't handle but any delays that might occur will usually happen during these two stages of the project.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
