My name is Marian. I am a local artist and now comic book illustrator in Long Beach, CA. I just printed my first set of 15 comic books for "Andrew the Mandrew," my first ever complete book.
I am very excited to share these with everyone, but as of now I can only afford to print these 15. I sell each book for $5 and it costs about $4 to make each one. I would like to eventually print my second book after getting this one the laughs it deserves and getting it in the hands of the people wanting a little more humor in their lives.
I really hope to reach this goal, and maybe even surpass it so I can start on volume two. Thank you guys for supporting. I really am super excited about getting this going and perusing my passion in animation and illustration.
Risks and challenges
The biggest challenge is finding a good quality printer. I've been looking for the right people to print and it's been a serious battle to get the comics on the right pages and not cutting off any words or graphics. I want to make sure I can actually print it in time so I can make it to comic-con this year to meet other comic book artists. Another risk after getting the funding is finding people to actually buy the comic book, like local book store owners.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
