Birdcage Bottom Books 2018 comics publications

$10,865

202

Birdcage Bottom Books is passionate about promoting compelling handmade comics. We don't have one unifying theme, tone or drawing style we champion but rather search for comics that are personal and varied. 

This year, Birdcage Bottom Books is hoping to introduce some incredibly talented cartoonists flying under the radar to a wider audience. By pre-ordering through this Kickstarter campaign, you'll both ensure these publications see the light of day and save money! This is also your chance to get custom artwork, original comics page art, exclusive mini-comics and more (scroll down to read more about the rewards and see photos/samples). 

Since many of these artists may be unfamiliar to you, we're providing sample chapters or pages for each in the links below (click the image or title). 

APRIL RELEASES (to debut at MoCCA Fest):

Eva Müller “In The Future, We Are Dead  In the opinion of the author, Eva Müller, punk is dead but the attitude is still her favorite. She cries over Adele songs but later is too drunk to fuck. She is afraid of death, but can´t stop drawing him constantly. Driven by contradictions like these, she created a 160 page graphic novel, “In The Future, We Are Dead”. 

 An elderly woman dies lonely. After a long time, brother and sister meet again at the father’s funeral. A punk girl finds out that she is not immortal. Very personal death stories have been composed by the author, which also reflect her own death fears.  

7.5” x 10.5”, 160 pages. $15
Full-color covers and interior. Perfect-bound

Part autobiography, part cultural review, Matinee Junkie contains entries for every movie the author saw in theaters each year, with the complete collection spanning almost 250 movies over five years, from 2013-2017. In-depth rants about bland cinematography and stories of nightmarish theater experiences combine with five years' worth of autobiography, reflecting the way our own lives intersect with the stories we love to lose ourselves in.

Full-color cover with b+w interior. Perfect-bound

 

D. Bradford Gambles “A Lone Deer At The End Of The World A Lone Deer At The End Of The World is the story of a deer that wanders out of the woods and stumbles across the ruins of an abandoned mall.

Blue risograph on cream cover with b+w on cream interior

 

Stephanie Mannheim "Nate The Nonconformist Has A Rival!" It’s 2006, and thanks to several trips to the mall, Nate is the most non-conforming punk at school... at least, until a mysterious green haired classmate threatens his reign. Meanwhile, Nate’s ex-girlfriend Charlotte sees something else in the green haired stranger: a partner in crime for cheating on tests. Nate the Nonconformist Has a Rival! is a tongue in cheek look at high school angst and store-bought anarchy shirts.  

5.5” x 7.5”, 32 pages. $5
2-color risograph covers + interior

Risks and challenges

Our main challenge is funding the printing for these comics!

Besides being in business for a decade, we've run several successful Kickstarter campaigns, so we know what we're in for. We know how to handle printing as well as shipping large quantities of comics and have the supplies to do so.

Many of the comics are completed or near completion. The three comics to be released in April are already finished (although we may end up re-lettering Eva Müller's book) and just need to be set up for pre-press. We will continue to check in with the artists who are still working and make sure progress is being made (and post updates with new pages every so often).
