The hilarious hit webcomic is finally coming to print! Dear Dinosaur is the internet's only advice column written from the point-of-view of a time-displaced "terrible lizard." Written and drawn by creator Ryan L. Schrodt, the webcomic was successfully launched at www.twoforonecomics.com in early 2012. With your help, the first print collection will be available this summer!
Dear Dinosaur will solve all of your problems--from avoiding disastrous dinner parties to snagging the girl of your dreams and beyond. I suppose it is worth noting that Dear Dinosaur actually hates humans and has little patience for their reliance on him to live their lives, but that doesn't stop him from dispensing his 65 million years' worth of knowledge to the "pathetic apes" seeking his help.
The volume one collection will include 22 strips from the first six months of the strip, plus exclusive pin-ups and strips that will only be found in the printed collection!
UPDATE = As we have passed the 100% mark, the additional funding that we are raising will not only go towards further printing and promotion of Dear Dinosaur, but will also go towards launching a series of minicomics for kids called MAKE/believe. The hand-assembled comics will be aimed towards young readers and sold at an affordable price at conventions (after all, little ones don't have a ton of cash!).
UPDATE #2 = Because we reached $1,000 raised, all backers will now receive the first MAKEbelieve mini-comic "Today I am a Pirate!" If we hit $1,250 all backers will receive the first two MAKEbelieve minicomics and if we hit $1,500, all backers will receive the first three MAKEbelieve minicomics!
With your help, we can print and promote Dear Dinosaur! All funds raised will go towards offsetting the cost of producing, printing, shipping, and promoting the comic. Funds raised above and beyond our goal will go towards the production of Volume Two…coming in 2013!
Dear Dinosaur Volume One will include pin-ups from Tara Coble, Kyle Shold (www.kyleshold.com, www.theprevailist.com), Kyle Benning (kylebenning.deviantart.com), and Ray Wegner (raywegnerart.blogspot.com)!
The regular cover for Dear Dinosaur Volume One will be created by the amazing Steve Bryant, creator of Athena Voltaire! You can check out Steve's work here: http://atomictiki.blogspot.com/. The convention variant will be drawn by creator Ryan Schrodt and can be seen below (in progress)!
