Bronarr: Space Barbarian may not be a real cartoon series (yet), but that didn't stop us and some of our most talented friends from imagining what it would be like. Who knows, perhaps one day Bronarr's animated adventures through the cosmos may actually become a reality! In the meantime, enjoy this free short featuring our space bro-barian's official theme song by Austin-based band, The Millipede!
Risks and challenges
We have 95% of the material ready for print. Aside from that we'll need to collect all the ads and set them into the magazine. Roughly we're looking at 7 days of preproduction after the campaign is complete.
There is also a 14-day window for collecting and processing pledges. After that, all pledges will be transferred and we can pay the printers.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
