What's ImmortalChoke?

What's up, strangle masters! ImmortalChoke is a daily Brazilian Jiu Jitsu comic on Instagram about the less glamorous aspects of training. We're always injured, gassed out, and complain about everything. Which is why it makes perfect sense now to release a comic book so we can constantly remind ourselves of how injured and complainy we are off the mats too!

I've spent a long time designing this book. I probably went through 4 versions from scratch to finally arrive at a copy I believe is worthy for you guys. 

 Check out the cover - this is only going to be available for this Kickstarter. If we make enough to print more books after this Kickstarter, it'll have a different cover.

What's in it?

I hand picked over 170 of your favorite comics, largely based on high like, comment, or share counts on Instagram. So really, you guys picked them. I wanted to give you a bit more though, so I've also made 5 bonus comics that have never been seen by anyone. Even Mrs. Immortal :O

Whoa, you're making gi patches too?!

Many of you have harassed me about making an ImmortalChoke gi patch for ages. So god dang it, I finally did. They are being made as we speak, and it is based on the design you guys asked for the most "Always Injured, No Cardio".

I also made a set of small 1.25" character buttons that will be available as part of a bundle. Only 30 sets!

Sample Comics

Thank you

I just want to say thank you to all you pajama wrestlers out there who support me. It took my wife almost 2 years of convincing for me to even think anyone would like my comics. But look at us now. I still can't believe it sometimes. Thank you! Let's make this book a reality!

Risks and challenges

Packaging and shipping orders will be the biggest hurdle since my wife and I are going to do this all ourselves. But I feel confident we are well prepared so let's go!
