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

For the 10th Anniversary of Johnny Wander (!!!), we're collecting our travelogue comics! If you're a fan of our autobio comics from Johnny Wander: Our Cats Are More Famous Than Us, then you'll be excited to hear that our travelogue comics go hand-in-hand with them!  

These comics span 2012 to 2017 and cover many of Yuko's trips to Japan, as well as trips Ananth & Yuko took together to India, Hawaii and Japan! While these comics were posted intermittently with our autobio comics online, they have NEVER all been collected in a book before!

We've ALSO included some extras, including photos from these trips with some fun alterations:

We're really excited to finally have all these travelogue comics in one place! Check it out! 

Here are the latest push goals! 

Let's talk rewards!

Mockups of the Regular & LTD edition! (NOT FINAL ART)

 We worked on the book designs with designer Patrick Crotty of PEOW, and we're super excited to share them with you! This book comes in regular and limited hardcover edition, and collects all of the travelogue comics we've done up to the present! Much like the Johnny Wander: Our Cats Are More Famous Than Us omnibus, we wanted this to be a very thorough collection of all the related work in one place. 

We're also offering a really cute pin of Yuko's favorite airplane! It's 1.25".

This pin is 1.25"!

We also put together a special printset for this project–– much like the fun drawings on photographs Yuko did for the interior of the book, she's also done a set of prints we're calling CATS OF THE WORLD! These are postcards with a back side that you can use to write letters to your friends! 

One change you'll see from our prior campaigns is that 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!

Here's a closer look at the reward tiers: 

We hope you see something that excites you! This collection has been a long time coming and we've worked really hard to get it out for the 10th Anniversary of Johnny Wander! Thank you SO MUCH for being a part of the journey!

Risks and challenges

We have run and fulfilled 7 Kickstarters since 2012! The files are ready to be printed and we've chosen a printer we've worked with before. Final shipping is always up in the air due to customs, but we will keep everyone posted as the process goes along.
