THE PLAN: Make a webcomic about the most amazingly fantastic and completely random adventuring club ever seen! THE PROBLEM: No funding.
What is The Amazingly Fantastic Adventurer's Club?
TAFAC is a webcomic I'm hoping to create with your help. I can't give away too much of the story, because I don't want to spoil it for you. However, I can tell you the basics. The comic will star a group of unlikely "friends" consisting of a guy and a girl in their early 20s, a lanky green alien named Sid, Death personified as a quiet 10 year old boy, a bear named April, and a rarely seen ninja named Bill. These members have come together in search of one thing, adventure, and adventure is exactly what they find. Whether it's battling hordes of zombies, locating lost relics in ancient hidden cities, saving the world from impending doom, or ordering a pizza, the members of The Amazingly Fantastic Adventurer's Club are constantly on the go in the most hilarious ways.
What is this Kickstarter for?
This Kickstarter is to raise enough money to pay for the first season (first 50 comics) of TAFAC, which will begin in August 2012 and end roughly around December 2012. The funds we raise will cover the cost of the software, a drawing tablet, website hosting fees, the Kickstarter and Amazon fees, and help cover the cost of shipping for the rewards. Any additional funds that this project receives beyond the $300 pledge goal will go to extending the comic beyond the first season, getting more up-to-date software, a better drawing tablet, and will result in an over-all better quality comic.
What rewards can I get?
All contributors will be listed in order of contribution size and date/time (the bigger the contribution and the sooner you make it, the higher up on the list you'll be) on a dedicated page of the comic once it launches!!! In addition you can receive the following rewards:
$1 - You will be rewarded with my undying love and gratitude, because let's face it, ever dollar counts!!! I will also literally say something nice about you to a stranger on the street.
$5 - I will E-mail you a sketch of one of the TAFAC characters thanking you for your contribution. The sketch will be special to this kickstarter project, so this will be the only time you'll be able to get it.
$15 - you get a thank you card, an autographed copy of a black and white "trading card" of one of the TAFAC characters, and an autographed copy of the same card digitally enhanced with color. Each "trading card" will be a photocopied version of a hand drawn card, that I have made, that will show a picture of 1 of the 6 main characters and their "stats".
$25 - You get a thank you card, 6 autographed copies of the black and white trading cards (one of each of the 6 TAFAC characters), and 6 autographed copies of the same cards digitally enhanced with color. Also I will literally yell your name out of my dorm window so everyone can know just how amazing you are!!!
$50 - I will draw you into one of the comic's story arcs, let you pick what you will wear/look like, and whether you're good or evil. The story arc may be anywhere from a single comic long to a dozen, and your character may even become recurring.
$100 - You will get the 6 autographed black and white trading cards, the 6 autographed color trading cards, I will literally yell your name out of my dorm window so everyone can know just how amazing you are, I will draw you into one of the comic's story arcs, and I will write a blog post about your greatness on the website that the comic will be appearing on.
$200 (2 available) - This reward is only available to 1 guy and 1 girl and answers the question, "Why are there question marks on the faces of two of the characters in the TAFAC picture?". Both the guy and the girl will receive the 6 autographed black and white trading cards, the 6 autographed color trading cards, I will literally yell your names out of my dorm window so everyone can know just how amazing you are, I will write a blog post about your greatness on the website that the comic will be appearing on, and I will draw one of the MAIN characters (the 20 year old guy if you're a guy, or the 20 year old girl if you're a girl) in your likeness and name them after you.
$1,000 (1 available) - Okay, first, THANK YOU!!! Second, you will receive my undying love and gratitude, I will also literally say something nice about you to a stranger on the street, I will E-mail you a sketch of one of the TAFAC characters thanking you for your contribution, the 6 autographed black and white trading cards, the 6 autographed color trading cards, I will literally yell your name out of my dorm window so everyone can know just how amazing you are, I will draw you into one of the comic's story arcs, I will write a blog post about your greatness on the website that the comic will be appearing on, I will create a third main character who I will draw HOWEVER you'd like and name them WHATEVER you want, and finally I will shave my head (which I have never done before), write your name in sharpie on my forehead, and send you a video of the whole process with a signed picture of me afterwards.
