About this project
Do you like ninjas?
Do you like bears?
Enter... NINJA BEAR! A new all-ages comic series (and soon-to-be Action Plush!) by Mark Mullaney.
For this campaign Red Stylo Media is looking to raise the funds to print the first 24-page full-color issue of Ninja Bear, as well as produce a 12" Action Plush of the Ninja Bear main character!
NINJA BEAR is the story of a little bear who is also a ninja, on a quest to save his teacher who was taken by an evil force. On the way, Ninja Bear meets weird creatures, explores amazing places, and occasionally saves the day. The original webcomic is full of mystery, adventure, and comedy, and we're excited to bring Issue #1 of this new series to life!
Mark has worked with Red Stylo for several years and this is an opportunity to support his book, and for RSM to expand into the all-ages comic market. NINJA BEAR is a story Mark has been planning for many years and we are very excited to share the bear with all of you. The story is inspired by video games and mythology from many different cultures, and centers on strong themes of respecting nature and always trying to do what's right.
We only have one reward tier and every backer will get a copy of Ninja Bear Issue #1 with their name on the special thanks page! (Check out our Add-Ons section below if you'd like to order more than one.)
Elinda Deans of DEANS FAMILY PRODUCTIONS has kindly agreed to take on the legendary task of putting our hero to fabric! For the first time Red Stylo is commissioning a limited run of Ninja Bear Action Plushes! Each Action Plush is hand-made, stands 12 inches tall and is specially designed to be a faithful reproduction of our little hero!
We'll be updating with new pictures as the prototype progresses!
We only have one reward tier and every backer will get their own hand-made Ninja Bear action plush! (Check out our Add-Ons section below if you'd like to order more than one.)

DEANS FAMILY PRODUCTIONS (DFP) is a family-owned and operated company creating children’s books and toys. Started by Robert Deans in 2014 with the debut of Shakes The Cow in the book MOO THOUSAND AND PUN, DFP has quickly developed a reputation for quality all ages products. Following MOO THOUSAND, a second series for young readers, THE BEAR FROM AUNT spy adventures featuring Stanley The Bear was created. Robert’s wife Elinda created a line of handmade toys based on DFP characters, including Shakes, Stanley, Elinda’s character Chrysaur The Pigasus, and their Kidlet’s character, The Mighty Hippofartamus, and more! Like the books, the toys are made to delight children and adults alike. Find them online at deansfamilyproductions.com.

Risks and challenges
Funds from this campaign toward the actual cost of printing and shipping the comic and all rewards only. Production on this book is not contingent on this funding.
Production on Ninja Bear will take place during April, and will conclude by June. Red Stylo has a proven track record of delivering comics (both on Kickstarter and on our own--just check out our back-catalog!), and we have collaborated with this printer in the past. The quality of their product is OUTSTANDING. We have also teamed up with an experienced plush toy vendor with a successful track record and many satisfied customers.
While our print order is being run, Red Stylo’s team will prep rewards for shipping, including comics codes and PDFs. We have chosen rewards and shipping options within our regular production budget and the cost of these items has been considered and accounted for.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
