About

I am creating Bear Company because I want to see more comics about big fat gay men that don't fetishize them and are inclusive of transgender men and non-binary people. So I hired some of my favorite artists to draw comics about bears hanging out and being bears.

All stories are appropriate for teens and up!

Now I need your help to publish them. Bear Company will be a 48 page perfect bound book in black and white, with a full-color wraparound cover by Amanda Lafrenais. All art has been completed (Except for the cover colors) and the artists paid, so I am asking for $4000 to publish.

I am using the industry-standard contract created by Iron Circus Comics, so the more we raise over the initial goal, the more the artists get paid! For every $1000 over the goal each artist gets a $30 bonus!

Bear Company will feature a full-color cover by Amanda Lafrenais, an illustration by Sfé R. Monster, and stories by myself and:

Blue Delliquanti (O Human Star, Meal)

 

Dorian Cliffe and Ryan Estrada (Banned Book Club, Broken Telephone)

 

Nero O’Reilly (The Poorcraft Cookbook)

 

 

Risks and challenges

The comics are complete and the book is ready to go to press. While there is always a chance of printing delays, the books will still be printed and shipped as soon as possible.
