The focus of this Kickstarter is on the printing of the THIRD hilarious issue collecting my ongoing webcomic, "Finding Dee", AND a brand new trade paperback collecting issues 1-3!
The actual comic strips are 90% complete as of this writing and I just need a little help bringing this project over the finish line and getting it printed! I've put together some really fun rewards I hope you all will be interested in and hope you can help me bring this new comic to life!
Finding Dee is an online webcomic that launched in January of 2017. It centers on the trials and tribulations of my life as a 40-something cartoonist struggling to make ends meet and find acceptance as a Transgender woman.
The comic strip focuses on me and features my partner Heidi and our adorable puppy, Puddin' Poe Whistle Fish! In this issue, I dive into stories about gender reassignment surgery woes, adjusting to new meds AND the ultimate debate: Is Star Trek the Next Generation better than Deep Space Nine?
I've been making comics professionally for years. From fanzines of the comics I made while a student at the Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic art to my long-running webcomic, "Dandy & Company", which launched in 2001, I've been creating laughs and thrills.
I'm also the creator of the fantasy/adventure comic, "The Wellkeeper" and have worked on "Atomic Robo", and "Star Mage" with IDW, "The Perhapanauts", "PvP', and "Tellos" with Image and co-created and illustrated the series "Carpe Noctem" for Hashtag Comics.
That's right! The rewards for this kickstarter will include not only issue #3 of "FINDING DEE", but also the brand new trade paperback collecting issues 1 through 3 of the comic in one hilarious volume with over 75 pages! So if you just want a taste or a full course meal of funny, we have the books for you!
With all the comics I draw, hopefully I can take a NAP after all of this! But in all seriousness, the journey of my transition is JUST beginning and life is providing me with a nearly endless supply of ideas for new strips and stories. So, with a little luck and YOUR fantastic help, I can keep creating new comics where I can tell these stories for years to come! As always, thank you ALL!
Risks and challenges
The risks here are EXTREMELY minimal, as I've already created 90% of the material needed to complete issue #3! And if you've helped by supporting the kickstarters for issues 1 or 2, then you know that I have fulfilled my rewards on time, every time!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
