"Follow the continuing adventure of the young dishwasher Bean as he must find out how to heal the broken sword of Ganadon " Read the comic for yourself at www.beanleafpress.com
For the last 3 years the Eisner nominated webcomic has updated twice a week. almost 400 strips later the epic story of our dishwasher still goes on strong. Twice I have run collections of these strips into two incredible books. Book 1 : Riddles and Shrooms and Book 2: the Lost Prince of Darkleaf. Now I continue the adventure in next incredible chapter of the Bean : Broken Souls.
As an independent creator, kickstarter has given us a way to tell creative stories and make our projects a reality and not just a dream. We are very grateful for what kickstarter has done to help creators of all the arts.
Today I come to you, to help me fund book 3 in my series. This is my plan, it hasn't changed since the last 2. I just want to tell a story and put it in book format. You have helped me do that.
The Bean, vo3 by Travis Hanson 172 pages (152 pages of story + extra art b/w) with a Full Color wrap-around cover. The printing cost for the first 2000 books with shipping is $5200 not including isbn fees and registration which after all is figured will hit about $6500 mark. All I will need is $5000 and I will be putting in $1500 of my own money to help make this work. It is important for me to support my project as well, it strengthens my commitment to it. PLUS I will cover all Shipping!
The Bean is an epic story, when I am done with it, it will cover 9 volume. That's a lot of story but I am determined guy with a strong desire to make my dream happen. One day I will color it - but only when I am done with the story.
This time around, I listened to the feedback and tweaked my reward system. I am offering some cool extras, including Maps to the world, more original art to the story as well as a chance for a cameo appearance of you in the comic. Please read through the rewards and find what is best for you. I want you to be happy.
Also read the q/a section of my kickstarter- it will address some shipping issues we had with international... I want this to be a fantastic smooth experience.
We reached $10000 I am adding 8+ pages to the book. I will add more exclusive content to the book that is new and unique. So I am starting to plan this one out.
New Stretch Goal: $15000- If we hit the 15000 mark I will be adding special bookmarks to each book.
If we reach $20000 I will print a new special book that involves the art of the bean - softbound. I will upgrade each hard copy book reward with this book and a pdf version to the pdf rewards. So you get a new unique book along with book 3 of the bean.
Thanks again for supporting my dream - There is no way I could do this without you. Keep Creating-
