What is Get Your Man?GYM is a sex-positive, romantic and erotic webcomic about Francis & Charles - a couple usually, but not always, depicted as a Canadian Mountie and Scottish Doctor.
Not always - because their stories span various fabulous universes!
They've been robots, vampires & werewolves, dogs & fleas, humans & aliens, high school kids, goats, coffee shop employees, space explorers and even Vegetables!
Their adventures usually revolve around their blossoming meetings and romances - often with sexy results. Like, really sexy.
I call Get Your Man a sex-positive Porn Comic - as it features diverse body types, consent and actual enjoyment :D
It can be read, for free, at getyourmancomic.tumblr.com
What is this Omnibus?
GYM has been printed, in German, as 3 separate Issues. And this Kickstarter aims to collect Charles & Francis adventures thus far into one big full colour book - for the first time ever, in English, for your reading pleasure.
This will include the content of all 3 German issues, and sparkly extras!
Not only can you get your own copy of Get Your Man by helping us to print it - you can get special, awesome and Kickstarter Exclusive extras for your patronage!
Extra Special Rewards in Detail:
Two tiers - The German Butt, and Der Glitzer Popo include copies of the individual German volumes, published by freibeutershop.de
These have been added, in collaboration with Freibeutershop, so that German fans wanting to get involved can still get German books - as well as the omnibus and some extras.
For just the German books visit freibeutershop.de

£80 - Adopt A SparkleHelp fund the magical and glorious sparkles that cover Get Your Man and make GYM the gorgeously glittery gem that it is.Your money will help keep GYM's sparkles well fed, rested and fighting fit.

- Rights retained by Kami, creator of the characters
- To be posted on the official GYM Tumblr

Update: We've over-funded!
We're gonna use excess money here to make the books even better, and potentially send out bonus goodies to all our lovely backers :D
£3000 - Printed, WITH GLITTER!!!
The front covers of every book will be printed using Thermographic Glitter Ink, so Get Your Man's art will be the sparkliest it can be!
£3500 - 25% More BUTTS!!!
The book will contain 50 extra pages!
Bonus Comics? Extra Sketches & Behind the Scenes? Photos of Kami's Dog? - Probably some combination of two of these.
£4200 - Mix-N-Magnets!
If we over-fund THIS much, we're gonna have to make something completely new and amazing.
Mix-n-Magnets. Like those old-school mix-n-match flip-books with 3 segments, these will be magnets of Charles & Francis heads, torsos and legs, from the different AUs.
Stick them on your fridge in any combo you'd like for maximum customisation, and your own personal AU!
A totem pole of Butts?
These will be included totally FREE for all backers of physical tiers (£15 and above) before being available for other folks to buy.
Minimum Costs Breakdown
50% - Printing 200 Books, the minimum run.
20% - Backer Rewards
10% - Postage
10% Kickstarter Fees (5% + 20p per pledge)
5% - Dragonhide Studios (Mx. Harry's work organising the campaign, sourcing the printers, and setting up the online shop).
- And the rest (about 5%) can serve as “Just in case” to fix anything going wrong or falling through.
Risks and challenges
If we (Kami & Dragonhide Studios) encounter any delays like printer issues, postal strikes ect - we'll keep all backers updated with the situation. But largely we should be okay - Being already published online as a webcomic all the; pages, art, wording ect are already finished and having printed 2 issues in German already we're confident we can handle this.
We are print-ready and eager to go!
If the printing of Get Your Man #3, in German by Freibeutershop encounters a problem - we will keep you updated, and send out the regular English Omnibus as a replacement if necessary.
Should we fail to meet our full goal, Get Your Man will still be readable online as a webcomic. And we may look into non-independent publishing.
After hot chocolate and hugs of course.
