Welcome to A Teddy Bear Tales, the Kickstarter campaign for an all-ages comic book adventure.
Did you know Teddy Bears have been protecting children from the monsters under the bed since 1902?
This is the story of Tristan the Teddy Bear and Wilma Bunny, who suddenly find themselves on the front-line of a secret war waged for over 100 years.
Our story begins as our two cuddly defenders Tristan and Wilma hunt down the mysterious teddy bear that saved them from their first encounter in with the monsters under the bed. From there, they start to discover an adventure unlike any they had encountered before.
Yay! We made our full funding for A Teddy Bear Tale - Thank you everybody!!!. With 24 hours left let's see if we can reach the stretch goal for Team-D - it will be awesome if we can get this comic book published too!
