About this project

MEN PLUS MONSTERS Vol.2 NSFW Print Comics! Gay Bara Erotica!

$7,066

106

I'm Aero, and I am printing Volume 2 of both MEN+MONSTERS and ACE OF BEASTS, my two long-running gay bara fantasy comics, in two beautiful new full-color paperback books!

Two books, one campaign!
Two books, one campaign!

MEN+MONSTERS and ACE OF BEASTS are fun, explicit, beautiful, gay erotica webcomics featuring men and monsters rendered in handsomely colorful detailed art, with expansive world-building beyond the bedroom!

I created these stories through the desire to make more lighthearted fantasy stories that both feature detailed beautifully-designed characters, plots full of action-adventure, romance, men who are far more original than the typical seme-uke standard of yaoi comics, and with scenes of very explicit consensual kinky erotica.

With gay, pansexual, and POC main characters, highly original designs and worlds, as well as witty writing, my comics about men and monsters are truly one-of-a-kind! With your help, we can bring these big, sexy monsters and men to life, and you can even take them home with you ;)
This is my third time crowdfunding books based on my original works, having printed full-color paperback books of Ace of Beasts Vol.1 in 2016 and Men+Monsters Vol.1 in 2015.

Please note that these stories are VERY explicit, and feature various kinds of kinks and fun things that are definitely not safe for work. Each book and backer reward is for an 18+ adult audience, and we do not take responsibility for people who pledge without this in mind.

THE STORIES:
Men+Monsters and Ace of Beasts are fantasy action-adventure stories about gay and pansexual adventurers in polyamorous relationships who go on erotic quests with men and monsters!
There is also quite a bit of humor, a tiny bit of drama, and a whole lot of romance!

A teratophile knight, his monster lover, and their robot companion go on an adventure to mend the rift between monsters, humans and robots with every sword they have.

Volume 2 contains chapters 4, 5, and 6 of the webcomic!

Chapter 4: Desire in Circuit Kin
Akilas wants to meet robots like him, but when our monster boys go to the nearby Robot Town, things don't quite go as planned!
Chapter 5: Love Cove
Kinver and Dover find a secret beach for sexy times - and they find much more there than they anticipated!
Chapter 6: In Thickest Wood
Lex opens a sex toy shop. Meanwhile, Silas' monster form is getting stronger, and he trains with Ink to control it. These two things may be related!

Contains monster sex, tentacles, some language, robot destruction, robot sex, vibrators, bondage gear, sex magic, and occasional meows from a cat man.

 

 

A swordsman, a demon, and a thief seek to stop the powerful monster sorcerer who cursed them and encounter erotic, dangerous monsters along the way.

Volume 2 follows our djinni mercenaries going on a monster-hunting errand for a king, while finding romance with his most powerful knight! Old friends, new beasts, and action-adventure unfolds in this rather sweet chapter.

Contains bondage, centaurs, threesomes, orgies, fantasy violence, blood, some language, explicit smut, scenes of monster sex, a headless dullahan, prosthetic arms and legs, multiple dragon penises (on the same dragon), and bad puns.

 

 

Thanks from Men Plus Monsters! digital comic:
A digital-only full-color comic to be delivered to all backers of the comics’ Kickstarter campaign after funding is complete. The characters of Men+Monsters and Ace of Beasts will thank each of you in one big, special, silly comic made with love! Length of comic will vary, but each page will be about 7 x 10.5.

NSFW digital comics NECTAR and Guardian:
All backers at the $5 and up level will be able to download my previous anthology comics, now in hi-res and in full color!
NECTAR is an 18-page story about three gods who make love in paradise after messing around with the titular sweet treat, and Guardian is a 4-page short sweet but NSFW one-shot about Lex and Silas while they're traveling to Rathe between Chapter 1 and 2 of Men+Monsters.

KNIGHT OF ALANOC:
A 60-page full-color paperback comic book focusing on the slow-burn romance between Osric, a knight who can't seem to let down his guard, and Xerxes, the one man who grows to love him dearly. A sweet story that can be read on it's own, and also a direct prequel to Ace of Beasts that enhances the plot through context of two of the main characters' past with each other.
Mostly SFW romance, but includes a sexy NSFW ending.

ACE OF BEASTS VOLUME 1:
The first edition of Ace of Beasts's first full-color paperback comic book chronicling the adventures of a buxom red-headed goatee-sporting swordsman and his cute bearded lover who transforms into a lava dragon!
114 pages of comics plus bonus uncensored pin-ups of characters from the story!

FAQ:

1. Why Kickstarter?
I like having all the project updates, announcements, details, and pre-order info all in one place :) It is also much more accessible than other pre-order systems I have used before.

2. Why are you printing both books at the same time? Wouldn't it be easier to print them separately?
Shipping to CAN and EU comes out to the same amount whether I ship one book or two, and hypothetically if I ran two separate Kickstarters for each book and someone wanted one book and later the other one, they'd have to pay that same shipping amount twice - so I figure it is best to combine the two now to save people shipping.

In addition, both comics happen to be finishing up their book content within the same month, and I did not feel comfortable having two pre-order sales running for almost the same amount of funding as the other, within a month of each other.

3. Can I know more details about the monsters?
Sure! The monsters are considered on par with humans in terms of sapience and intelligence, and are not considered animals. The monsters (and the humans, humanoids, centaurs and all other sexual participants!) appearing in sexual situations are of-age, mentally mature, provide vocal and physical consent, and are quite happy to be sharing themselves with our swordsmen ;)

4. How are you shipping the books?
In discreet plain white boxes, with bubble wrap cushioning the books inside so that they don't get damaged in transit.
Each printed book is 7x10.5, and these boxes are a little bigger than that.

5. Can I know more about the Canadian / international shipping prices?
Those are the minimum prices to pay for shipping abroad. Remember, these books are quite heavy even for paperbacks (each one is almost one pound, not including the weight of backer rewards and packing materials)! Additionally, please note that you will have to be responsible for customs fees, should they arise.

I have done my best to reduce shipping costs as much as possible without sacrificing the safety of the books and backer rewards in transit.

6. Have you printed books before?
Yes - twice now in fact! My prior printing projects include Men+Monsters Volume 1 (2015) and Ace of Beasts Volume 1 (2016). Please see the photos below for a more clear idea of the books we're making :)

 

 

ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Aero Zero is the sole creator (artist, designer, and writer) of Ace of Beasts, Men+Monsters, and many other consensual erotic gay comics. They have worked in professional and freelance comics as a colorist and illustrator since 2012.
Aero also runs the hub site for all their comics, Men Plus Monsters.

THANK YOU!

Thank you for taking the time to look at my project! Crowdfunding has allowed my dream of making positive LGBTQA+ stories to become a reality, and I'm happy that so many people have expressed how important the stories are to them as well.

By backing these books, you are contributing to a lot of peoples' happiness, by bringing to life comics that celebrate love above all else!

 

Risks and challenges

I have completed about 60 out of ~230 pages total of the artwork for both Men+Monsters Volume 2 and Ace of Beasts Volume 2 combined, and I've finalized the overall layout of the books. Extras and editing may delay the creation of the book.

I've successfully crowdfunded both Ace of Beasts Volume 1 and Men+Monsters Volume 1, in 2016 and 2015 respectively. After printing them, I shipped all of them (hundreds of books in all) to backers with very little problems in the shipping process, and they all went out within the month they were shipped to me. I have already worked with the manufacturers of the backer rewards before, and this book printer is quite reputable :)

This is just up to funding now, and the only things I can think of that can cause delay are editing and shipping-related - if there are circumstances outside my control i.e. postal service issues such as customs or carrier schedule changes, or if there ends up being a LOT more backers for the books than I expect (which would be amazing actually! :D), there may be a delay in receiving the books.

If everything goes as planned, I am confident I can get all of our books and rewards out to everyone by the end of December 2017! If anything comes up, I will be sure to update you via our Project Updates page.
