About

Chewler is the 88-page, balls-to-the-wall, action-packed comedy tale of a former spec ops general who is called out of retirement by Grandmother Supreme (a super computer who is in charge of the United States) to stop an eccentric millionaire who aspires to bring Adolf Hitler back to life for his own gain!

"The single greatest (and only) book I've ever been in!"
                                         -James J. Chewler
"No character in comics rocks a bow tie harder than I do!"
                                         -Rubin Charles lll

____________________

How would I explain Chewler? Well, if it were animated, it would fit on MTV's old Liquid Television or on Adult Swim. If it were a live action film, it might be co-directed by David Lynch and Darren Aronofsky. It's tone and look have a trippy influence that is unlike anything else out there.

The story is bold and original and the unique art will plunge you into the world of top secret military operations, inter-dimensional portals, robot clones and morally questionable business decisions! Espionage, intrigue and laugh out loud comedy in one shiny package!

We hope you'll notice that we have tried extremely hard to pack the tiers as full of goodies as we can. We appreciate your getting behind us and want to offer you a ton for your money. At the $25 tier, you'll get SIX books and a PRINT. 

**Attention overseas backers: In an effort to make the shipping process smooth for all involved, we are only offering certain levels with out of country shipping. Shipping rates have gone through the roof for international packages. Sorry for any inconvenience!**

THE BOOK IS 100% FINISHED AND READY TO DELIVER! NO WAITING AROUND!

Why Kickstarter?

Because we ain't rich. We are independent creators which is a fancy way to say we're poor, working stiffs. Kickstarter is the ultimate pre-order system. Fans discover and show their love to creators who can in turn fund their projects and reward their backers. A true win-win. Self publishing gets very expensive and it just makes sense to turn to crowd funding to find a new, wide-reaching readership of true comic fans. 

Kickstarter Exclusive Print!

3 FULL LENGTH GRAPHIC NOVEL PDF'S YOU SAY?

That's right, I do say. You'll notice that starting at $20, you can grab not only the 'Chewler' physical copy but also the PDF (88-pages), 'The Wisdom of Fools' anthology from Fifth Dimension Comics (100 pages) and 'Completely Inaccurate' PDF from Exspastic Comics (184-pages). It's important to us that you get what you pay for and at a total length of around 372 pages over 3 books is a pretty good way to get bang for your buck. 

-The Wisdom of Fools- A 100 page journey into the collective nightmare of five writers and nine artists. The very first book from Fifth Dimension Comics brings you horror in it's many forms and includes a large pinup gallery!

-Completely Inaccurate- Completely Inaccurate started out as a weekly improvisational sketchbook comic. Each week a few pages were drawn in a 6 by 9 sketchbook. Whatever came to mind. Completely improvised. What followed was a foray into historical fiction, end of the world prophecies, Pseudo-Discordianism, music trivia, Monarchism, 11th hour deadlines and general insanity. George is an average businessman trying to work his way up the corporate ladder. Suddenly, he finds his career crashing down before his eyes. Touched by insanity (..and the gods) George finds himself transformed into an Emperor-like figure and begins a quest to reclaim his throne halfway around the world ...in America.
