Chester 5000 is a web comic I've been working on for almost 10 years! I've completed many other comics in that time, like my autobiography with time travel, We Can Fix It, and several stories for the critically acclaimed Smut Peddler erotic comics anthology. Chester holds a very special place in my heart, which is why I think it deserves to be collected in the best book possible. The first Chester 5000 book was published by Top Shelf and they did a gorgeous job. I want the second book to be just as great, maybe even better, that's why I've come to Kickstarter and to you!
The first volume told the story of Pricilla, a Victorian woman with needs, who falls in love with Chester, a robot made by her husband, Robert. It's a romance with sci fi elements about empowering women's desire. The book was critically acclaimed and pages from it have been featured at the Museum of Sex in NYC.
The second chapter of Chester, Isabelle and George, continues the adventure and explores the character's first meetings. It follows Isabelle, a lonely orphan, reprimanded at every turn by her strict matron, and George, a promising inventor on the cusp of a brilliant invention. It's a romance with dramatic twists about secret desire, industrial corruption, and the oppressive social prisons that get in the way of love.
The book will be hard cover, 175 pages. We've also got some great rewards like sexy ebooks, tote bags, stickers, and enamel pins. I'm working with the lovely, experienced people at Make That Thing for this campaign, so they'll handle order and reward fulfillment.
Let's make this book the best it can be. Thank you for reading and supporting!
Risks and challenges
This is the first Kickstarter project I've done, but I'm not alone! The very competent folks at Make That Thing are helping me every step of the way, from book printing to rewards to helping me run the campaign itself. They've worked on countless successful projects and I'm very confident in their results. This also isn't the first book I've worked on, so I know what book production can be like.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
