Hi there! We're Ananth Hirsh and Yuko Ota, the authors of Barbarous! You may be familiar with our work from Lucky Penny, Our Cats Are More Famous Than Us, CUTTINGS, Offhand, or any of the many freelance we've done in our 10+ years in comics. You can read many of our works at johnnywander.com.

Barbarous is the story of Percy, a down-on-her-luck wizard school dropout who finds herself out of her depth when she becomes the assistant to the super at an apartment building full of misfits. Leeds, the super in question, is a secretive monster man that she just can’t seem to get along with. And of course there’s the landlady Cecilia (of Girl With the Skeleton Hand fame), who clearly has some secrets of her own. Barbarous has magic, drama, pasts shrouded in mystery, and more drama. Can Percy make a place for herself here? Will Leeds be able to make room for her? They might be able to help each other out, if they could just get along first...

Barbarous is serialized online-- you can read it all here. It’s about to enter the 4th chapter of the story, and things are heating up! This campaign is to raise funds for a Chapter 2 Oversized Edition, to complement the Chapter 1 Oversized Edition that we released earlier this year (and which you can also pick up as a part of this campaign)! These are printed at a larger trim of 9 x 11.5", as a nod towards the style of french albums.

Risks and challenges

The files are ready to be printed, a printer we have worked with before has been chosen, final shipping is always up in the air due to customs but we will keep everyone posted as the process goes along.
