The goal of this project is to make a small print run of my first collection of comics, from my comic series, "Guinea Something Good," found at http://www.JoeGP.com .  The book will be about 88-100 pages, and include as many comic strips as will fit.  The first 37 strips I created are formatted in such a way that has allowed me to use the bottom of the pages to create a strip based "Choose Your Own Adventure" that I will also be including.  ::EDIT:  I will actually now be using the REST of the pages instead of the first 37 to make the Choose Your Own Adventure, bringing it up to at least 50 pages!::   ::ANOTHER EDIT::  I'm bringing up the page count!  This comic book will now be 130 pages long.  It will feature a new introduction page comic with Joe and George.  There will be around 80 pages that contain the Choose Your Own Adventure strips, and three full page alternate endings.   I will also be including an 8-page silent comic based on silent cartoons of the 20's, which you can read here: http://www.ftgpigs.com/chapters/25382/intermission-featuring-silent-guinea-pigs/.  ALSO.  Every person that donates $5 or more will receive a 3.25" weatherproof sticker of Joe!::  My main goal is to have a decent amount of printed books that I can take to comic conventions.  This takes capital, which I don't have!

As thanks for your contribution, you can see the rewards to the right.  If we raise more than the goal, I will start adding new material.  For $750, I will add a new 3 page story.  For $1,000, a new 5 page story.  $1,500, a new 7 page story, and $2,000 a new 10 page story.   I will also be able to print more books!

This is my first attempt at printing a real, trade paperback sized comic book for distribution.  I've been drawing comics for over fifteen years (yeah, since I was a kid), and this is the first series I've done that has allowed me this opportunity.  Thanks for your help!

If you're ordering internationally, please include an extra $10 to your pledge to cover shipping costs.  Thanks!
