"Shonen King is the best puppy-suit manga written in Montclair, New Jersey, and illustrated in Indonesia that I have ever read." 

-Rocco Castoro former editor-and-chief Vice  

"Very funny stuff!" 

-Kyle Higgins writer of Nightwing and COWL 

If you watched our video, that’s pretty much our story. We’ve managed a lot with a combination of our own money and previous Kickstarter donations, but we’ve reached a point where once again, we’re out of cash. Neither of us are well off enough to really fund this as our own crazy passion project, and we’re definitely not able to draw it ourselves, so we’ve decided to come back to Kickstarter to see if there’s enough interest in our series to push forward. If you’ll notice, our rewards are small. We’re not an established company pitching a new game or a bunch of big name writers and illustrators with the connections to produce fabulous rewards. But we still want to keep on creating our comic and make it available for as many people who are interested in reading it as possible.

 

Think of this more as a comics pre-order, one where you get the first few chapters of the story free just for being nice enough to pay for the next couple issues. You can even preview some of our work at our website, www.shonenking.com to decide if you like it well enough to contribute. We’re not looking for big ticket donors, though if you’re inspired to be one, we’d love you forever. Instead, if you decide you want to help us out, throw a couple bucks our way and ask your friends to do the same. We’ll be honest, we don’t have any really great physical rewards to offer. All of our stuff is being offered digitally, and that's because as much as we’d love to have cool t-shirts, key chains, stickers, hardcover comics, plushies, and other merch, we want to use the money to make as many pages to tell our story as possible instead of using your money to pay for rewards, and as you can tell from our pledge levels and rewards, we’ll be spending everything we can on making that content. The more we make, the more new content we can send your way if we get funded... Unless of course you have a lot of money burning a hole in your pocket, and you want one of our famous puppy hats. Then we can totally make you one of those too.

Risks and challenges

There’s very little risk associated with this kickstarter. This isn’t our first rodeo; we’ve funded and completed our original project and delivered all of the chapters and rewards that we intended to. We also have the luxury of handling most of our assets digitally, so any potential complication other projects have run into via printing will be completely avoided. Perhaps the biggest risk involved are delays associated with our artist, Erwin who lives on another continent. But he’s very excited and eager get to work seeing how the scripts are already written and ready to be handed off. Generally despite the occasional internet hiccup, he’s proven to be very punctual in the past. The biggest potential delay is within the manufacturing of our modest physical rewards.
