"BOTTOMS UP! True Tales of Hitting Rock-Bottom" is an anthology collecting real stories of bottoming out from alcoholism, drug dependency, sex addiction, body dysmorphia, pornography addiction and more. These stories have been adapted into comics by a team of incredibly talented and diverse cartoonists. It was edited by J.T. Yost and will be published by Birdcage Bottom Books.

WHY THIS THEME?

The theme of addiction is very personal to me, as I have several close friends and family who struggle against it on a daily basis. A few have lost their battles, and I miss them. 

Some of the most powerful stories I've heard in my life have come from addicts. I believe a collection of these stories might provoke empathy in those who are not themselves addicts and recognition in those who are. My greatest hope is that those who are struggling with addiction but haven't admitted it to themselves will identify with the stories within this anthology enough to realize that they are not alone and that there is no shame in seeking help. 

The book will contain an index of organizations that can help with addiction. A percentage of proceeds will be donated to a local recovery program in New York. 

WON'T IT JUST DEPRESS THE READER?

I won't sugar-coat it: There are a lot of harrowing stories included in BOTTOMS UP!, but I've tried to balance it out with some levity (every addict has got at least one funny story). Both the story-tellers and the cartoonists adapting their stories are a diverse group, so there is a natural variance in both tone and style. 

HOW DID YOU GET THE STORIES?

I first hit up my family and friends. The original concept was that all of the authors would remain anonymous while the artists would be credited for the artwork. A few of the authors asked to include their names, but for the most part they are anonymous. This ensured that they could feel free to be brutally honest without fear of repercussions. 

I then set up a website to which people could submit their stories anonymously. These stories were all then posted for my curated list of cartoonists to choose from. Some cartoonists adapted their own stories or those of their own friends and family. 

WHY USE KICKSTARTER?

The short answer is that I don't have the funds to publish this anthology in a way that would do its contributors justice. I'm also hoping to be able to compensate each contributor monetarily. 

I am hoping to make this book available to a wide audience. Kickstarter will not only broaden the audience itself, but it will allow me to afford a professional print job of a large quantity, an ISBN & barcode and all of the trappings of a "real book" accepted by book stores and large distributors (a majority of Birdcage Bottom Books' publications are hand-made minicomics that don't fit that criteria). 

HOW WILL THE MONEY BE USED?

The majority of the funds will go towards the printing cost. I will be using a trusted printer in Canada that I have used for several previous projects. The funding goal reflects the printing cost with 5% going to Kickstarter's fee and 5% to credit card processing fees. 

Anything raised above the goal will be divvied up between all of our contributing artists.

 THAT'S A LOT OF REWARDS! WHERE CAN I SEE SAMPLES AND SUCH?

Yes, I wish there was a way of grouping each artist's rewards, but Kickstarter's not set up for it. BUT you can go here to see sample art, specific pages of original art, links and more. 

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

There is very little risk in completing this project. I started work on it over two years ago. All of the comics have been collected.

I have run the Birdcage Bottom Books company since 2008, so I am familiar with all aspects of publishing and distributing products. I have two large-scale successful Kickstarter campaigns under my belt, so I understand the amount of envelope stuffing and stamp licking ahead of me should the campaign succeed!
