The time is right as stars align and for this world a dark design. While in his grip, they hear your cries, it’s on this night Kidthulhu… Kidthulhu… stays up past his bedtime? Wait, no, that’s not right…
For centuries mankind has heard the call of a being they called Cthulhu. Biding time they waited till the star aligned to reveal the city of R'lyeh and the location of the dread dreamer. Imagine their surprise when it turns out they've been pronouncing his name wrong all along. Kidthulhu is an all-ages story of child hi-jinks, adventure, and weird worlds staring your favorite star born Kidthulhu, his pet shoggoth Shog, and his best friend Capi the Albino Goat of the Woods with 999 Siblings.
Kidthulhu: Tales of Madness #1 is a new start for Kidthulhu created by Martin E. Brandt II and Charles C Dowd. This first issue collects 32 pages of hi-jinks and adventures with Kidthulhu and his friends published by Raven Warren Studios.
Featuring the artwork of Charles C Dowd fresh off his popular Lilith Dark series with guest artwork by Jess Boudrie (Dax and Night Maiden), Courtney Hahn (Podunk), Gaston Pacheco (Dead Future, Convocation), and Martinho Abreu (THE U.S.A./HEROIC TALES, Laces, Dead Future).

We're not looking for a payday here or to pay others working with us. All that is done out of pocket. This Kickstarter's focus is primarily to print books and spread the word about Kidthulhu. Anything beyond our goal that isn't fees or taxes will go straight back into making Kidthulhu awesome.
*International Shipping: We know it's expensive, but options are limited to us. We've been able to add a reward tier to help out.
Additional Kidthulhu ToM #1: Add $5.00 USD to any physical reward level $20 or above.
Kidthulhu ToM #1 Sketch Cover (Blank): Add $10.00 USD to any physical reward level.
Special thanks to the following people who have helped immensely while setting up this campaign: Tiffany Brandt, Arthur Orneck, Amanda Orneck, Jess Boudrie, Matt "Doc" Martin. Also big thanks to H.P. Lovecraft and his Cthulhu Mythos, without the inspirational madness there would be no Kidthulhu.

Risks and challenges
Martin and Charlie both have experience creating and publishing comics for the past 5 years. Martin has produced and participated in several anthologies during that time, Charlie has successfully published and fulfilled a Kickstarter for Lilith Dark. Still with experience problems can happen. This can run the gamut of production issues, illness, or even loss of participants.
At this moment a majority of the pages are inked. All we have left are letters, colors, and layouts. All of which Charlie and Martin have a proven track record in completing.
We're using a trusted and known printer, Print Ninja. While their reputation is great even they can face issues like random customs inspection, weather event, or even a labor strike.
With our experience and the experience of our trusted printing partner we are sure that no matter what issues we face we'll find a way to get this great book in your hands.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
