Dust Bunny: A Graphic Novel by Brett Brooks

$7,240

156

Hi, my name is Brett Brooks and I am the author and illustrator of the graphic novel "Dust Bunny."

Over the course of the next 4 months, I will be dedicating my time to the production and development of this 160+ page story. But while the comic itself is a very heavy undertaking, the work barely stops there. I will also be managing regular updates on the Dust Bunny blog, website, and Facebook page (go on, Like it!), producing a number of promotional pieces to assist in the marketing of the book once it's released, and cranking out any other collateral art that I feel is necessary in order to give my readers a worthwhile story and product they can enjoy.

The money you pledge goes towards a number of subtle variables, but they can be summarized into 3 categories: materials, printing costs, and my freedom to focus on this book.

You can't create a comic book without the proper tools. Being that as it is, there will be a very serious investment in top-notch materials (pencils, paper, ink, pens, and brushes) to make sure that the art is at the highest possible quality. As well, once the art is complete, the next step is to kick down the doors of as many publishers as I can. Most of the ones I'm aiming for require hard copies of the comic's pages - they want to see and feel what it looks like on paper - and I will need adequate funding to print and mail these pitch packages. However, even if I'm not scooped up by anyone, I will be self-publishing this book to ensure that all of you faithful followers are rewarded for your amazing support.

Most importantly, though, the money you pledge will allow me to keep clients and freelance jobs at arm's length. Security equals focus, and the more security I'm afforded during this endeavor, the more time I can dedicate to these pages.

I sincerely appreciate any support you can give me during this exciting process! And please swing by the blog (mentioned above) to keep up with the book's progress!

**For international supporters, please include the following shipping costs to your pledge. Thanks!**
