The Pacifiers - my dream comics project

My name is Andreas Qassim. I've been cartooning professionally for 17 years. The Pacifiers is my dream comics project.

The Pacifiers is a silly, fast paced action adventure comic for all ages. It's about three toddlers with the extraordinary ability to transform into Rambo-like muscle men. They're on a mission to rid the world of bullies and protect the innocent. The way they do this is by shoving special pacifiers in the bad guys' mouths, thereby rendering them harmless.

The idea for The Pacifiers has been with me for 10 years or so. I think it grew out of contemporary world angst. Often, it seems to me that the Earth has been overtaken by madmen who do everything they can to destroy it. How do we battle these maniacs? Well, not with more violence. What the world needs now is less violence. Wouldn't it be awesome if we could just put a pacifier in the mouth of an idiot? That's why I created The Pacifiers.

Jimmy Wallin is an experienced cartoonist and scriptwriter, whom I've had the pleasure of sharing studio with for many years. When I read Jimmy's script for the first Pacifiers story, I was pleased to see that he understood exactly what I was after. He managed to boil down my multitude of ideas into a simple, appealing and highly entertaining story, with lots of room for me to have fun with these weird characters. We had a real good time making the first story, and it left us hungry to make more.

So that's where we are now. We want to make more Pacifiers comics. And for this we need YOUR help! If we manage to raise this money, we'll be able to give you two longer stories with The Pacifiers, featuring awesome heroes, spaced out villains, exotic environments, and maxed out adventures. And once those comics have been made, the sky is the limit!

There are some really cool awards available for our backers, so please make sure to check those out and pick the one you like the best!

Preliminary design for the stickers and T-shirts

We feel strongly for this project. We hope you like it and want to see it made as much as we do. Support us and join this adventure! Help us make my dream come true and get The Pacifiers out there! The world really needs them!

Sincerely
Andreas

Stretch goal: The Pacifiers Magazine

Several people asked me about a printed version of The Pacifiers Comic. We reasoned that we'll get to that once we have five or six full length adventures. Then we'll print the first proper Pacifiers comic book, and maybe we'll have another go at Kickstarter to try to fund it. But what the hey, why not throw in a printed version of The Pacifiers now already?

Here's the deal: If we can reach 75 000 kr before the end of the campaign, we'll print a Pacifiers comics magazine featuring the same material as the PDF. There is something about holding a magazine in your hands, that a web comic - no matter how awesome it is - simply can't compete with. Everyone who pledge 150 kr (the stickers level) and above will get the magazine as a bonus!

This magazine will be super exclusive! It'll never get printed again. Next print will be the first Pacifiers book, so the magazine will be a real collector's edition! So, if you pledged 150 kr or above already, you'll get this extra exclusive reward for free! And if you're currently below 150 kr and you REALLY would like that magazine, all you have to do is increase your pledge. And hopefully, new backers will be thrilled about getting two rewards for the price of one. Let's print The Pacifiers!

Risks and challenges

The only risk here is delay. I'll be on parental leave between September and December, so if the project is dragged out past August, I'll finish it early 2017. The same goes for the rewards.
