About

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, Wander: A Johnny Wander Travelogue Collection, CUTTINGS, Offhand, or any of the many kickstarters, freelance or published work we've done in our 10+ years in comics. You can read many of our works at johnnywander.com.

The Reuben award-winning series returns! BARBAROUS is back with a Kickstarter for the Chapter 3 book! You can also pick up the first two books if you missed them, as well as some other rewards! 

Persephone Mori has a job! She’s been brought on to assist Leeds, the superintendent of an apartment building. It all sounds too mundane for a wizard college dropout, but the devil’s in the details: Leeds is a towering monster man, the landlord is a mysterious woman with a skeleton hand, and the building… well, the building is weird.

It’s new tenant day, and Percy’s been assigned to ready the empty apartment. There are some odd rumors about the unit, but a job is a job. Percy’s got to make the most of it, no matter how strange things get– and they’re about to get really, really strange...

BARBAROUS has magic, drama, pasts shrouded in mystery, and more drama! Can Percy make a place for herself? Will Leeds be able to make room for her? They could probably relate, if they could just chill for a minute...

Here are the latest push goals:

Barbarous is serialized online – you can read it all here. It’s about to enter the 5th chapter of the story, and things are getting serious! This campaign is to raise funds for a Chapter 3 Leeds-sized Edition, to complement the previously released Chapter 1 and Chapter 2 Leeds-sized Editions (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. The book will be 48 pages long.

 We also have a very special item to offer you in this Kickstarter! Yuko designed a two-sided mini dakimakura (body pillow) keychain of Leeds just, uh, hanging out! They're about 2.25x4" and very soft. We have extremely limited numbers of these, so if you're interested don't wait to pledge for them! We also have a single standard-sized daki cover available in the top tier. And of course, you can get prints, sticker sheets, signed bookplates and more as part of this campaign!

Please note - there's no shipping being asked with your reward tier. Instead Shipping costs will be determined as part of our fulfillment process through PledgeManager. This will let us calculate more specific and accurate shipping costs when we're closer to shipping out rewards!

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.
