About this project

***NEW STRETCH GOAL SHIRTS!***

Since we are reaching the end and coming a bit short I decided to reduce the stretch goals so now If the project reaches $2000 donors who gave $25 or more will receive this extra shirt. If the project makes it to $2300 EVERYONE who gave over $5 gets this classy v-neck! Tell your friends because time is running out! THE PROJECT IS OVER ON OCTOBER 1st!!!!!!!

"Dewey Delane in Weapon of Choice" is a comedy noir comic staring a five foot tall man of mystery aptly named Dewey Delane. This comic will be printed in 32 page book featuring a stand alone adventure plus some great guest artwork. You can read a teaser of the story at bentye.com.

If you give $25 or more you will get one of these t-shirts. Don't worry about sizes just yet I will get that information from you after October 1st.

FAQ

  • I have been getting this question a lot and I finally did some research on pricing.
    If you selected a reward under $25 or over $100 do NOT add anything for international shipping. however if you chose something from the $25-$70 range I would appreciate it if you added $3 to offset international shipping.

    Last updated:
  • The comic does contain sexual situations, violence, and gratuitous amounts of smoking. If your infant is interested in reading about those topics I would be very confused about your parenting skills. On one hand your baby is interested in sex and violence but on the other hand you have taught an infant to read.
