Civilization collapses, and a bird-headed gentleman begins amassing myriad items in a strange secret location. Thus begins INVENTORY, the main story in this, the third issue of THE CONSUMPTIVE, an ongoing one-man anthology series of odd comics by Jamie Tanner...
How this works:
- For 2 weeks, you can pledge to this project to get a print copy of this issue, if you want one.
- All pledges include a digital copy. So even one dollar gets you a comic.
- After funding ends, print copies will only be available at conventions, or via future crowdfunding projects.
- Once the project has been fulfilled, the comic will be available digitally in the Consumptive Press store or via ComiXology.
So what's in this issue?
- INVENTORY, a longish indulgence in post-apocalyptic foolishness, comprises the bulk of its contents. Here are a few glimpses:
- More installments of ALWAYS ON BRAND, surreal comics adapted from twitter advertisements. Like this one:
- And, torn from the pages of Fortunate Horse Magazine, selections from THE WINNER'S CIRCLE, comics offering personal predictions and useful life advice:
In all, the comic will be about 40 pages. As with all issues of THE CONSUMPTIVE, it is completely self-contained. The contents are almost finished — I'm in the midst of digital production now. Digital copies will be sent out shortly after funding ends. Print copies will ship sometime in late May. They will also be available at this year's Toronto Comic Arts Festival.
A few notes on rewards:
Rewards include print and digital copies of the new comic, of course, as well as other titles in the Consumptive Press catalog. For more info about the other comics, visit the Consumptive Press store:
For more information about the $75 "Illustrated Tweet" reward, check out my last project, in which I made a whole book of 'em. Basically, you send me a tweet, I make a comic out of it and send you the original art. Like this:
Please note that print rewards only ship within the US. Apologies to international backers, but the cost of shipping these small comics internationally is disproportionately expensive. I hate charging more for shipping than for the actual comics being shipped. But you can pledge for inexpensive digital versions from anywhere in the world, so I of course encourage you to do so.
A special note for neighbors to my north: if you are in or around Toronto, I will have print copies on hand at this year's TCAF in mid-May, and would be happy to forego shipping and put one directly into your hands.
Thank you for your kind attention. Please consume.
Risks and challenges
Production and shipping always take longer than expected, especially when you also work a full time job, as I do. So delays are always a possibility. But the timeline for this project should still be fairly short.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
