$2500 - Improved Cover Stock. If we hit this funding level we'll be able to order a thick cover stock giving the book an even meatier feel!

$4500 - Kronk in graytones. If we reach this funding level we'll be able to hire a colourist to add gray tones to the completed black and white Kronk pages which will enhance the viewing pleasure for our readership!

$7500 - Enhanced offset print run. At this funding level Kronk the Neanderthal will get an offset print run with an improved cover stock making for a better quality product. We'll also provide a free exclusive print that will only be available to kickstarter backers for everyone that pledges at the $25 or higher level. 

$11500 - Kronk in colour! This would be the ideal funding level reached providing us the opportunity to hire a colourist to colour the entire book.

Hey, I'm Marvin Law, artist of the book, and along with Phil McClorey (Horror in the West, Monstrosity vol. 1&2) we're proud to bring to kickstarter our new graphic novella, Kronk the Neanderthal!

Kronk the Neanderthal is the story of a crusty Neanderthal sellsword who has grown weary of the deceits of men. Travelling north to his homeland, Kronk has a final rendezvous with an old comrade in arms. They fill the night with mead and accounts of their recent adventures.

But one final trial lurks in the shadows, one from which Kronk will not escape unscathed!

What we're looking to create through Kickstarter!

Kronk the Neanderthal is a self contained 66 page, black and white graphic novella. The book is ready for the printer and with your support we'll be able to create a print run we can get to our fans and provide at future comic conventions.

Risks and challenges

With the book completed there is very little risk for Kronk the Neanderthal backers. If the book reaches it's stretch goals it'll take a little more time getting it into your hands since the interior artwork will need to be coloured. Otherwise we will be able to get Kronk into your hands by the date advertised.

Kronk the Neanderthal will be the fourth crowdfunding campaign I've run, the second through Kickstarter. With the help of Brian Evinou I delivered on the past Monstrosity vol. 2 crowding funding campaign and possess a lot of knowledge in the areas of self-publishing and Kickstarter fulfillment.

I'm also looking forward to donating a portion of the future proceeds from convention sales of Kronk the Neanderthal to the Canadian Liver Foundation (since funds raised on Kickstarter are prohibited from being directly donated to charity).
