I’m making a new collection of Rose comics, called Rose: Second Helpings!
- 100+ pages of fun comics!
- Completely in full colour with remastered art!
- Brand new stories for new readers!
- More than 100% of your daily comic nutrient needs!
It’s a fun, friendly comic for all ages, like old-school Archie meets Nancy. You can read many of the comics online for free on rosecomic.com
I’ve been writing and drawing Rose since 2015 and I’ve made eight issues of the Rose comic book so far - that’s a lot of comics! And now I’m putting together a new collection!
Rose: Second Helpings will collect issues #5-#8 and include new material for new readers, not seen anywhere else! It can also star YOU in a brand new story! Here’s the rewards we have on offer!
Donut: You get your name in the credits! That's a pretty cool thing, I think! You'll be able to tell people you knew about Rose well before it was cool.
Cookie: This gets you a digital copy of Rose: Second Helpings, as a DRM-free PDF eBook you can read on any device you like! Wow!
Chocolate Cookie: This includes the digital copy of Rose: Second Helpings AND a digital copy of the first Rose book, Rose: First Course! That's over 200 pages of tasty comics for your eyeballs!
Brownie: You get everything above AND a physical copy of Rose: Second Helpings! I can't promise that it'll smell of pie, but it'll feel just as great in your hands.
Cake: You get all the goodies listed above but your physical book is signed by me AND has a sketch in it of pretty much anything you like! Bonus points if you want a sketch of Rose eating cake, because that's always fun to draw.
Ice Cream: This reward is specially-made for people who are meeting Rose for the first time! It includes both digital books and signed and sketched physical copies of both Rose book collections!
Pancakes: Your name in the credits, both digital books, a signed and sketched copy of Rose: Second Helpings aaaaand - the book includes a new story that features YOU as a guest star! I'll contact you to get your details and any special requests , and transform you into a character in Rose's world!
Strawberries: The ultimate in custom goodies, this has all the bonus rewards in the above tier but the cover will be a specially-made, hand drawn image of your choosing! This is one you don't want to miss!
Risks and challenges
This will be the tenth Rose comic book I’ve taken to print - so I think it’s fair to say I’ve gotten pretty good at the production aspect of this by now and feel there are very few risks involved.
I’m happy to report the contents of the book are already 90% complete - the only items remaining are the final version of the cover, ten pages of comics, the comics made for the limited reward tier backers, and any comics that result from reaching any of the stretch goals. Considering that pretty much all I do when I’m not at my day job is sit at home and draw comics (with the occasional round of Super Nintendo, while drinking chocolate milk), this isn’t a problem. So even if my eyes get removed in a freak Virtual Boy accident (hey it happens), the book will still get made.
I’m using a local, very reliable printer for the job who has served me well over previous comics I've made, and they’re ready to go as soon as I deliver them the pages!
This will be my sixth Kickstarter project to publish my comics, and I’m proud to say that all the previous campaigns have been successful, I have managed the budget correctly, everyone got their books and we all went home happy... some to chocolate milk and Nintendo, others to sarsaparilla and cartoons, but all, with a great comic to read.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
