What is this project?
Food for Thought is a twenty-four page comic book, already complete and simply waiting for print! With a style and feel are reminiscent of Mad Magazine, it's a book by the millennial generation that can be enjoyed by all ages. A book created out of the hilarity of the Republican circus, the belittlement of the Democratic elite, and the hopelessness of choosing between the two.
It's a comedy that defines American youth, says nothing is off limits, and confronts the darkness that surrounds us. It's possible that even a few points of social commentary slipped in somehow!
What is the story?
While attending a presidential debate, two young adults, Howie and Lynn, accidentally stumble upon a century old secret: Republican policies all revolve around eating babies. When presidential hopeful Tronald Dump tries to kill them to remove all trace of the Republican secret, his opponent Sernie Banders decides to help them at all costs. As Howie and Lynn just try to survive this political typhoon, they have a few more discoveries hurling their way, whether they want them or not!

How will the money be used?
The comic has already been written, penciled, inked, colored, and lettered, so all that is left is for it to be printed! Printing is needed for the comic itself, prints, and any stretch goals.
Since all the money raised is for printing, I can keep the project cost low and make sure that this kickstarter is a success!
Did you say something about Stretch goals?
Yessums! For every $1,000 the project makes (up to $10,000), I will have a new print made similar to the front and back covers but featuring a new politician. Each new poster will mash up that politician with an old propaganda poster. The first $1,000 stretch goal will be fan favorite, Sernie Banders!
If the project exceeds $3,000 then I will create four more pages to show how the election plays out in the aftermath of the first 24 pages of Food for Thought! That's four more pages of hilarious, zany, and ultimately pointless content, well worth the money!*
*As pointless as voting.
Risks and challenges
The full book is complete and is simply waiting to be sent to the printer! As soon as the project is done, the only wait time will be how long it takes to print and how long it takes to ship! Of course, digital items will be sent as soon as the project is over (unless you order it early and get an immediate download).
The only thing that could POSSIBLY take longer is if the stretch goals are hit and more prints and/or pages must be created. Of course, the digital version will still be sent and and any additional content created will be sent as soon as it's complete.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
