What's It All About Then?
Read The First Chapter (Rough Draft)
The Webyssey follows the story of a man (whose name is not Brian) trying to find his way out of The Web with his companions: Spambot, Strawman and Edgar the Lol-Cat. His adventures will take him from discussion forums to abandoned geocities sites, into MMORPGs, through the great Library of Wikipedia, into contact with Twitter birds, Facebookers and on the run from Grammar Nazis, Trolls and other internet denizens.
The book will be between 180-200 black-and-white pages, with colour inserts at the beginning each chapter.
The first 50 backers will also receive one of the few extant copies of my very first publishing effort, Cap Gun Cavalcade.
Who Are You?
I've been drawing comics for roughly five years and publishing them intermittently on my website DirtPony (it's not nearly as sexual as it sounds.)
Here are some other favourites: • Superheroes • House • Pokemon • Astrology • It's been more or less a hobby for me, but now I'd like to do something more substantial.
What's In It For Me?
Everyone who backs this project will get their name up in a special thank you section on my site. Every donation over $10 will get your name printed in the book, you could appear as a character in the book, design an alternate cover, and many other fabulous things detailed in the sidebar. Oh, and also you might get a copy of the book when all's said and done.
What's The Money For?
Besides the printing of the books and the rewards, backers' funding will go towards promotion of the book, setting up and travelling to booths at conventions, upgrading my computer hardware to a functional level, and other miscellaneous costs (well, there's always something, isn't there?)
Just How Bad Is This Famous Laptop?
It has a 30GB hard drive (of which only 4GB remains free) and 256MB of RAM. In other words, it's less powerful than an iPhone.
Just one little thing - if your donations come from outside the United States, it would be great if you could kick in a couple of extra dollars to help pay for the shipping. I've put some guideline amounts in the donation boxes. Cheers!
Thank you so much for checking out my Kickstarter page. With some luck, and your help, I look forward to bringing The Webyssey very soon to you and the rest of the teeming masses!
Please don't disappoint Mister Astley.
