My name is Adam Szym, and I draw comics on Good Show Sir!
For the past 2 years I've been drawing an all-ages weird fantasy comic called Of What Kind!
It's taken what feels like forever, but after lots of sweat and tears and ink and fluids, I've finally finished the first 200 or so pages of the first storyline: The Brood of the Outerfish!
Of What Kind is about anthropologists in a fantasy world who are sent to find and retrieve the eggs laid by a time traveling fish god 1,000 years ago. Sure, that sounds simple enough and not weird at all, right? Well it gets not simple and very weird, and it gets there fast!
The heroes soon find that, unsurprisingly, involving oneself with a time traveling fish god starts to make time a little...loosey goosey. Not only that, they quickly discover they're far from the only people looking for the legendary eggs of the Outerfish.
Of What Kind is filled with humor and adventure and is meant for readers of any age. If you enjoy time travel, otherwordly gods, the lingering effects of ancient wars, crystal caverns, giant birds, zeppelins, or other stuff, you'll enjoy this story!
Printing a full color 200+ page book is anything but cheap! I'm an English teacher in South Korea, so I wouldn't exactly call myself wealthy. That's why I'm here, asking for your help to print my book!
The book will be perfect bound with a softcover. It'll be full color and printed a bit oversized so you can enjoy the smaller details of the artwork!
It's going to be somewhere over 200 pages long, and along with the collected Book One, backers who purchase the book will receive a separate mini-comic collecting 2 short stories which will NEVER be posted online!
Along with the book, I'll be printing stickers and postcard prints to include with certain backer rewards!
SOME MORE ART
Risks and challenges
The main story of the first volume of OF WHAT KIND is all but completed, the only thing left to do is edit colors, add in pages where needed, and to write and draw the 2 short stories that will be exclusive to the book!
Barring that, printing the book should hopefully go off without a hitch, and the books will be shipped to any backers in the Fall of 2013.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Sure you can! You simply have to edit your initial backing amount and add $25, and I'll know you want a t-shirt! When it comes time to ship, I'll send a survey with different designs and you can choose the one you like.
