WHO WE ARE
We are Jonathan and Aaron, a couple of creative geeks living together in Los Angeles, CA.
Together, we created our weekly webcomic, Husband&Husband, which follows the daily life of a pair of husbands, sometimes biographical, sometimes just for fun!
WHAT WE DO
When we are not creating comics to share with the world, Jonathan is an author of young adult fiction, and Aaron works as a freelance artist and designer. We also run a YouTube channel of the same name, here: Husband&Husband.
WHAT ARE WE DOING
We have always loved offering a smile to people for free with our comics and videos, but the cost of printing a book is really expensive, and we'd like to have the first volume of our book printed professionally for all of our amazing friends and fans alike!
With any contribution, big or small, it will help us greatly in our journey to get this printed as a full color, 100 page book! If we are not funded within 30 days from the start, nobody will be charged. However, if we do reach our goal, we will be able to hand out the awesome rewards listed to the right! :)
WHY WE DO IT
Growing up in the 90's, there were very few LGBT role models. All over the world being gay is still very far behind in terms of acceptance. We enjoy helping spread equality and hope through our comics, as well as a daily/weekly laugh. We have always loved helping people, and creating our YouTube channel and business has helped us do just that! We're creating a community of once outcasted, sometimes nerdy, but always AWESOME people that all want to head into a better future for EVERYONE. Being a member of the LGBT community can be hard for people at times, feeling outcasted, and being a "geek" can feel even more outcasted. We want to create a space for all gay geeks alike!
Thank you for considering helping out this pair of dreamers. Anything you can do to help spread the word is greatly appreciated. Much love,
Aaron and Jonathan-
-------------- BIG UPDATE------------
WOW! We did it together you guys! We hit our goal! Husband&Husband is going to be a book and we CANNOT wait to get it into your hands. Thank you so much for the support, it means the world to us!
We've set aside some stretch goals, since there are still some people that have reached out and want to order the book. After we have calculated for the extra books and shipping, we wanted to add a few stretch rewards as a huge thank you to the backers that have already pledged, and new backers.
$6,000: We hit this stretch goal! Now that we have reached this goal, we would like to include a limited edition signed Husband&Husband comic print to every book order. (if you've already pledged at 25$+ reward tier, no worries, you will automatically qualify and we will include the print)
$10,000: We have added a new stretch goal, something HUGE! If we happen to hit this goal, we wanted to design and have a limited edition gold pin made for all current backers at 25$+ reward tier (as well as any new backers). Thought it would be really cool, and feel like we're all part of a club! :)
$15,000: This would be beyond our wildest dreams, because it means even MORE Husband & Husband books in print, but if we happen to reach this goal, we thought it would be great to hear from you all and your thoughts on what this reward could be. The possibilities are ENDLESS! :)
We'll continue to keep you all posted as the campaign continues and we get Husband&Husband into print! Thank you again <3
