Morgan's Organs #1-3 ~ The Anatomically Incorrect Adventure!

CA$ 7,437

270

Welcome (back) to Morgan's Organs, a comedy comic book series like Pixar's Inside Out but for grown-ups. We're back to bring you the next installment in the 'sitcomic' adventures of Morgan and the crazy organauts living inside his body. Are you ready to see what might really be going on inside our insides?

In 2016, we introduced Kickstarter and the world to Book 1 of our quirky concept, and in 2017, we returned with Book 2. Thanks to the love and support of our incredible fans, we're able to return for Book 3 of Morgan's Organs. The great thing about this series is each story is standalone - you can read it in any order and still enjoy the heck out of it!

In Book 1 (click to preview), we witnessed Morgan's two "heads" of the body clash for control of Morgan's decision-making, all while Morgan battled the pressure to end a dry spell.

In Book 2 (click to preview), we cringed as Morgan dealt with the pains of swallowing something he shouldn't, and the consequences it would have for the organauts as it moved through his digestive system.

This time, we're bringing you a story riddled with alcohol, phallic artwork and a secret Morgan wish he never knew. And what I am most excited about is that we're using an unconventional narrative style for this book with a structure similar to that of Christopher Nolan's hit movie, Memento.

Take a look at the Book 3 preview pages below!

 Dick drawings, black eyes and amnesia, oh my!

Morgan's Organs is the brain spawn of me - Daniel Brodie. After a couple years of pursuing the idea as a television series, I realized that the best way to bring my idea to the world would be to make it happen myself. So I partnered with the incredibly talented artist, Robert Jennex, to create the world of Morgan's Organs. Rob brings an incredible vision and spark to the series, and none of this would be possible without my Canadian partner-in-crime.

We're also excited to continue to have Tyler Kelting from Oklahoma, USA, on our team as the series colourist. Tyler joined us for Book 2 to handle the full colours, and he has brought an incredible sense of discipline and creativity to build on the Morgan's Organs style.

This series focuses on Morgan as he navigates everyday college life, which is made difficult by the fact that he isn't completely "human". Inside his body lives a variety of organ-like characters (called organauts) who control his various body systems and ultimately, are keeping him alive. The problem is these organauts don't always operate with the best interests of their host in mind.   

The stories take place on two levels. Outside, we follow Morgan and his group of friends as they navigate college life. Zoom in to his insides and we see how Morgan's struggles are made worse by a group of organauts who bicker, lie, cheat, argue, act selfish, and generally, don't work together as one.

Make sure to read the below highlights about our rewards. 

Below is a summary of the various reward tiers. Most rewards tiers build on their previous tier.

All of the below tiers include physical rewards. Shipping is incremental to the dollar amount indicated.

I have always tried to be transparent about the budget for my Kickstarter's and what the funds will be used for. I don't see this as a business - not yet, at least. These campaigns are part of my long-term vision to have Morgan's Organs picked up by a publisher, and eventually made as a television series. All of my rewards are priced appropriately to cover exactly what I need to support this vision. That means covering artist salary, production (including printing), and packaging/shipping. 

I pay my artist team what I am able, but we have a mutual understanding this is a partnership and we're investing in a long-term vision. Between Book 1 and Book 2, I was able to increase my per-page-rate for the art team. I hope to be able to do so again for this campaign by exceeding our campaign goal.

Our Kickstarter goal of $4,000 CAD supports the below:

  • 60% = artist salary
  • 30% = the 4P's - printing / production / packaging / parceling (shipping)
  • 10% = Kickstarter fees

Everything raised above this goal will go to a combination of:

  • Additional printing (further driving down per-unit-cost and creating opportunity to invest in our stretch goal rewards)
  • Increasing artist salary
  • Convention booths at future events
  • Future stories in the series!

Book 3 is already more than 75% complete - we only have about 10 pages left to ink and 20 pages to colour. Our goal is to deliver all campaign rewards by end-July/early-August.

Read some of the past coverage we've received on Book 1 and Book 2 of the series!

Starburst - Book 1: 8/10 stars - "Smutty, slapstick yet spectacularly striking in its approach and relatability, this is a battle of the heads that’s an absolute riot to watch unravel."

Starburst- Book 2: 8/10 stars - "Even more charming and funny than its predecessor... a hell of a fun ride."

Comic Crusaders -"Daniel lays out a wonderful story that I, no WE, need to read more of! The art is great, Robert brings to life the world of Morgan’s organs with a clean, animated style."

ComixBrew - "Morgan’s Organs is the kind of comic that is good to show your buddies for the laughs but also contains a deceptive amount of depth."

Comic Unknown - "If you ever wondered how Inside Out would have worked through the eyes of a male college student, look no more. Morgan's Organs is a gut-busting comedy that while the idea has been seen before, it is the fresh take we need and want."

Bleeding Cool - "Morgan’s Organs #2 hits a rhythm that the first issue only brushed up against. With this issue, each character has its place, and the situation is so ludicrous that it really lines up with the surreal premise of the comic."

The Outhousers - "The delightfully cartoonish art and exploration of maturity help [Morgan's Organs] defy expectations. It's a satisfying read for those that love thoughtful comedy."

If you've gotten this far, might as well read the rest of it! I'm honestly humbled that Morgan's Organs is even a thing in this world. I remember six years ago, I was embarrassed to even spill my idea to friends. Now, I am on my feet at Conventions, shouting at people walking by my booth to check out a comic that features a talking penis.

The reception to the series on Kickstarter, online, and at events has been incredible. I am not in this industry to make comics - I'm here to make Morgan's Organs! With each book, I get closer to my goal of getting picked up by a publisher so that I am able to make books more frequently, and who knows, maybe one day I can go back to my original dream of making this into a television series.

Only more books and more time will tell what the future of Morgan's Organs holds... oh, and your support for the series!

Risks and challenges

Risks, schmisks! We've done this twice before already and know exactly how to execute a Kickstarter campaign. In our previous two campaigns, we delivered within one to two months of the original promised date, with delays simply because we wouldn't sacrifice time for quality! This campaign, we have even more of Book 3 complete than ever before to ensure we can deliver that much sooner.

Short of Rob and Tyler getting enlisted to be the first humans to land on Mars, there is nothing stopping this project from happening. And even if they do end up on Mars, I'm sure there will be decent Wi-Fi connection for them to keep working between their less important, interstellar missions.
