Baxter and the Magic Towel is a twenty-page, mostly-silent one-shot comic about a dog who gets superpowers from a magic towel. So it's pretty straightforward!
Written and (to the degree necessary) lettered by Shaun Manning and illustrated by Esther Pimentel, this is a light, fun story about a super-family chasing their dog around town while Baxter tries to evade them using his own ultra-canine abilities.
Such a breezy story demands a brisk crowdfunding campaign. That's why I'm doing a one-day campaign under the "Break Kickstarter" initiative. By this time tomorrow, we'll all know whether the campaign was successful -- so please do spread the word as far and as rapidly as you can in this short time!
Otherwise you may never know why a flying dog would want to drive a car.
We're keeping things simple: the main rewards are print and digital editions of Baxter. But we do have a couple other bits for kids of all ages.
My 10-year-old designed some rad enamel pins. Now you and your child can proclaim your love of food!
Star Wars Adventures volume 3 features a Young Anakin story I wrote, along with a super rad Rose Tico story and shorts featuring the Rebels crew!
Risks and challenges
Baxter is about 3/4 complete and we do not anticipate any delays. I've previously run two successful Kickstarter campaigns for comics that were... um, very different from this one... and I'm confident this one will run smoothly. Or as smoothly as a one-day KS dash can go.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
