Help publish Johnny Wander Vol. 3: Ballad of Laundry Cat and reprint Vol. 1: Don't Burn the House Down. You can also get Vol. 2!

Johnny Wander is a sweet charm-of-life comic by Yuko Ota and Ananth Panagariya. It's been published on the web since 2009 and you can read all of it for free at johnnywander.com! The comic encompasses life after college, growing up, and all the little things in between. In 2010 we self-published Johnny Wander Vol. 1: Don't Burn the House Down, followed by JW Vol. 2: Escape to New York in 2011.

We put this project together to help fund a print run of JW Vol. 3: Ballad of Laundry Cat, and to reprint JW Vol. 1. All three volumes are available through this Kickstarter, so you can get one, two, or all three of the books right here! 

  • JW Vol. 1: Don't Burn the House Down - 128 pages, Paperback
  • JW Vol. 2: Escape to New York - 150 pages, Paperback
  • JW Vol. 3: Ballad of Laundry Cat - 150 pages, Paperback

There are a number of other rewards available, including:

  • Original comic pages Yuko has done for freelancing gigs
  • B/W commissions
  • Color commissions
  • Prints
  • Maw keychain
  • Exclusive tote bag
  • Vinyl toy designed by Yuko

We've previously participated in the Benign Kingdom Kickstarters (Spring, Fall), and now we're returning to Kickstarter to help us fund these two books. We hope you like what you see! Thanks so much for your support!
