About

Hot Commode-ity is a 24-page publication with a theme of Movie Appreciation. The shared theme of these appreciated movies being someone is either hit with a toilet, or a toilet is used in a "not going to the bathroom" way of advancing the story. It's a collection of reviews with accompanying illustrations, and 3 short comics. We are also making a 1.5" soft enamel pin that has been designed by Brandon Graham.

Our goal is to raise the funds to pay the artists, print the books, make the pins, with a cautionary cushion to cover unexpected costs.

We're launching now with an targeted street date of February, 28th 2018. For those of you that don't know, that's the day before the Emerald City Comic Con up in Seattle. You'd almost think there would be a party somewhere to coincide with this release (insert winking emoji here).
Also, this timeframe gives the artists room to work on this alongside their current projects.
(Give that vid a spin with the captions on)

Who are we?

Hi, I'm Andrew, I wrote this and assembled the team of artists to create this book with ARCANE Press. ARCANE Press exists within ARCANE Comics and More, your friendly neighborhood comic store located in Seattle/Shoreline, Washington. They've previously published books from Matthew Allison's CANKOR series.

Farel Dalrymple is making the cover. He is the creator of: Pop Gun War, The Wrenchies, and It Will All Hurt. He's currently working on Proxima Centauri. His work has been published by Study Group, DC/Vertigo, Dark Horse, Marvel, and Image.

Sandra Lanz is doing a one-page illustration. She's a Cuban-American artist, editor, project manager, developer, doer of things and getter of dones, not only in comics, but indie games as well. She created the book House Girls for the Stēla App, and has work published by IDW, Dark Horse, and Image. 

Ramon Villalobos has a one-page illustration in the book. He's a Pro Hot Shot Comics Artist and Community College Dropout. Raised by Wolves. Former Future Farmer of America. The Spirit of Cuauhtémoc. 111% all day, most days. He's worked on X-Men and Avengers/What if. He drew Nighthawk with David Walker and Tamra Bonvillain and has recently worked on the series America, all by Marvel. I believe the word you're looking for now, is "chingon."

Wook Jin Clark has a three-page comic in the book. Born in Seoul, grew up in Atlanta, currently in Portland. Wrote and illustrated MEGAGOGO for Oni Press, he worked on books by BOOM! Studios, and if you sniff the air just right, you can smell what The Wook is cooking over at Image.

Joseph Bergin III & Lin Visel are Owlin: They're doing a one-page comic. A real 'Hoot' of a duo who are writing, illustrating, painting, coloring, making, and doing all over the place. You can find their work online and in the recent PROPHET and ISLAND books published by Image.

Simon Roy is doing a two-page comic. You may know him from his work on PROPHET and HABITAT from Image Comics, and Tiger Lung from Dark Horse. His story Good Business was recently made into a short film. Can I put that here? If not I'll take it down, sorry, it's just, you should watch it... https://vimeo.com/224945053

Alejandra Gutiérrez has the final one-page illustration in the book. She's originally from Colombia and moved to Portland to make comics. Welcome to the party! You can find her work in the IDW/DC Love is Love anthology.


Brandon Graham
designed the pin for the project. 

B Grahammy's "Bowl & Crossbones"
B Grahammy's "Bowl & Crossbones"

Brandon makes comics. He created King City and Multiple Warheads, and he was the gaseous floating brain behind the recent PROPHET series from Image Comics as well as the anthology magazine ISLAND.

REWARDS

We're here to make the book, so that's the primary reward for you wonderful backers! We're also down with the pin game.

You'll notice that some rewards say "Haul Pass"- this is so you can take a pass on shipping. If you're in one of these areas, or will be (*cough* EmeraldCity*cough*ComiconinSeattle), or know someone who is, you can pick the book and/or pin up at one of these stores: 
In SEATTLE: ARCANE Comics and MORE! located at 15202 Aurora Ave N Shoreline, WA 98133.
In PORTLAND: Floating World Comics or Cosmic Monkey! 
Floating World is at 400 NW Couch St, Portland, OR 97209, right on the corner of Couch and NW 4th, close to the Chinatown Gate on Burnside.
Cosmic Monkey is at 5335 NE Sandy Blvd, Portland, OR 97213.
In VANCOUVER, BC: 8th Dimension Comics!
8th Dimension is at 2418 Main Street Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA V5T3E2

If you feel like it, you are welcome to contribute more than the amount listed for that reward.

Spare a Square lets you contribute any amount you would like, and in return you have our gratitude! Thank you for helping us reach our goal!

Hot Commode-ity! Hey, that's us! That's the book! That's what we're making. Pick it up from the store, or have your friend pick it up, or have it domestically shipped to you!

Silent, but Violent: A digital, PDF copy of the book. Yeah, it's almost the same price as the physical book, but you're not paying shipping on it, especially international shipping, which is pretty expensive.
If you DO want a physical copy of the book and you don't mind paying the international shipping charges send us a message, maybe we can work something out. It's just that it could end up costing $25 or more, depending on the distance and what it's packed in. We don't want things getting damaged in transit.

Gabba Gabba Get the PIN gets you the pin on its own, if that's the dream in your heart, who are we to stop you? Your pin game is strong. It'll be a 1.5" soft enamel pin with a butterfly clutch.

2 Hot to Jiggle the Handle gets you a book and pin, if you can handle it.

A Place of Honor in the Throne Room is your opportunity to be a prominently featured backer in the book. Yes, you! You're in the book now. You're even in the beginning of the book, too. We've made a special page with limited room in the front of the book to show our appreciation for you as a backer.
What about all the other backers? Didn't they help to get this project rolling?
They did, and they'll be thanked in the book as well, but their names will be printed much smaller in order to fit as many of them as we can in the back of the book.

Go the Extra Tile: Need to Grout at the Devil? Now you can. We've drawn the inside cover of the book to look like a bathroom stall and we're giving you the chance to write on that wall. Got a joke, pun, comment, vandalism, shout out, or just want your twitter handle here for all to see? Send us a message to get your idea approved first, and you're in. It may be a toilet centric book, but we do have some standards.
Get it with or without a pin. Limited Haul Pass available.

A Reel Bowl Full: Life is like a chair of bowlies, now your bowl can have some ARCANE Press cherries! Get Hot Commode-ity, our 1.5" enamel pin, a copy of Matthew Allison's Sweet Sepulcher book (16 pages b/w 5"x7"), and a CANKOR 1.75" enamel pin. Only 2 available!

Tidy Them Bowls & STRETCH SOME GOALS

Thank you for supporting us, our project, small businesses and indie publishers! What do you like, do you like stickers?
If we reach the following milestones you will also get:

$7100 Every backer getting a physical reward also gets a 3"x3" vinyl sticker designed by Brandon Graham!

$7350 The aforementioned sticker, AS WELL AS one designed by (an artist to be revealed when we reach $5000)

$7600 Those stickers, and ANOTHER sticker! This one by (an artist to be revealed when we reach $6000)

$8000 We're going to add so many stickers. So much stickers. You'll get the first sticker, then the second sticker, and a third, and let me tell you, these are nice stickers, the nicest stickers. And the best part is, you'll never get tired of these stickers. You'll have so many stickers you'll say "it's not fair to everybody else" and I'm going to say "I'm not sorry."(artist revealed when we reach $7600)

Risks and challenges

This is my first project, but I'm confident joining this rodeo because I'm working alongside experienced clowns. The assembled team of artists are ready to go and just waiting to fit this into their production schedules.
We've set the street date far enough in the future to allow for unexpected delays, but as with life, things can always get worse. What if someone is injured? What if someone dies? What if a far more lucrative project comes up and someone has to drop out? If that's the case we'll find someone else to cover for anyone who can't continue. We'll send out updates if anything happens.
Thanks again for your interest and for supporting us, our project, other people's projects, small businesses and indie publishers!
