About this project

Hello, we are DAPshow, a small indie webcomic host and printing gig. DAP has published a few comic books before, such as Physicist Roundtable, the Gothology series, and Cat Odes. Last year, we made a zine called Sweet Treats, which turned out great! Not wanting to lose that momentum, we want to make a companion zine - Sweet Meats.

Sweet Treats is a 6x9 inch zine with 48 full color pages, by 24 different artists. It includes comics, illustrations, and even a recipe or two, all under the title theme. It's cute, funny, a little morbid, and definitely sweet. If you'd like a taste of our last zine, you can see some preview images in this blog post.

Sweet Meats is designed to be something very similar. We're shooting for the same size, with more comics, illustrations and recipes from some returning artists, and a bunch of new ones, under the new theme of meat! Also like the last book, Sweet Meats will only cost $5 per physical copy. We will also be sharing pages throughout the campaign, so keep an eye out on our updates!

The Artists

The Goods

Along with the PDF and physical books, we can also offer copies of Sweet Treats in case you missed out on it! In addition, we'd like to print some cute stickers of our meaty mascots as an incentive. Prices shown do not include shipping.

Stretch Goals

Should we meet our initial goal, we will discuss stretch goals. Before that though, we want all of our focus on the actual books.

Printing

We plan to use the same printer we used for Sweet Treats, Print Ninja! The books came out very nice, and the pricing allowed us to sell them at a very reasonable price.

 Thanks for the support everyone!

Risks and challenges

Our biggest risk of course, is not being funded! While we were able to make the last zine out of pocket, it was a big financial strain on us. As a result it took longer to finish, and the artists were compensated only with copies of the zine. We're hoping to speed up the process, feed our artists, and take some pressure off with crowdfunding!

As far as printing goes, we're hoping to reduce risks by using Print Ninja, who printed our last zine Sweet Treats for us. The books came out excellent, and they were a pleasure to work with!
