Pudge is a one of a kind dog, and a little gassy.
Pudge is a one of a kind dog, and a little gassy.

Pudge Fat Dog is a daily comic about a lovable and hilarious dog who likes cats, hates other dogs and loves pies. It was written and illustrated by 11-year old Samea Derrick, over the course of a year and a half (without ever missing a day!) We hope you'll take some time to get to know Pudge a little better -- and can promise he'll make you smile!

The comic was inspired by an actual French Bulldog named Pudge who like the comic character created by Samea hates dogs, likes cats and enjoys pies.

The comics revolve around the quirky dead pan dog (Pudge) and the crazy people who live with him (Tash & Rob).  Every single day Samea made a three to five panel comic about Pudge.

Every Sunday Samea made a full color jumbo comic.

 On top of the daily comics she did the comic below that was actually in the L.A. Times Comics section. You can see all of her online comics at https://pudgefatdog.wordpress.com/

 This kickstarter will combine all of Samea's hilarious comics into one perfect bound (soft cover) comic book. That 's over 461 comics! 

The book will contain comics and poems not included in the online comic. For a select few backers there will be an opportunity to have a personalized caricature of themselves or their pets in an actual comic in the book.  We have lots of other great rewards including signed copies of the book, post cards and even original artwork and a chance to meet the real live Pudge who inspired the comic. 

Pudge is a quiet dog, he doesn't bark but he does make a sound that makes him smile. Click on the sound player to find out what it is.

Risks and challenges

The great thing about this project is almost all the work is finished! We've already pulled all the comics from her website and arranged them into a digital book. What we need are backers who can help us overcome the cost of printing and distribution. Samea and her parents are fully committed to pack, label and ship this fantastic comic book to everyone who supports this project.
