Hello! My name is Kelly and I have been making comics and putting them on the internet for a few years now. They're about my life, friends, family, animals, food, video games and anything else that comes to mind. You can read them at www.anythingcomic.com
They look like this ...
Anything About Nothing is a (mostly) comedic webcomic that I've been putting them online since 2009, which in internet years makes it the equivalent of a middle-aged adult. Maybe.
There's also a bunch of cat comics.
I've wanted to make a big ol' book for a while now and a number of people have asked if there's one that exists. I've had to tell them no and follow up with a mysterious ".... not yet.". To this they often respond with a slight knowing nod of the head and, on occasion, a cheeky wink and finger gun. Anyway, I've never been able to make the book because books are expensive and I am poor. So this is where kickstarter and you lovely people come in.
I'm hoping to raise enough money to get a whole bunch of books printed. With your help I'll not only be able to raise this money but you will also be able to get some stuff in return!
The book will be A5 (148 × 210mm) in size, over 250 pages long, with over 200 comics. It will also include several unseen comics, created for the book.
A lot of the comics are old and the artwork is outdated so many of these will be redrawn exclusively for print (the ones online will stay the same, they'll act as a reminder for myself of the dark days gone by).
There'll be a small section dedicated to the 'behind the scenes' of the comics, where I talk about how I make comics and what not. There will also be comments to accompany the comics, photos (of my cats? Probably), (d)evolution of the comic through the years and other secret stuff that you will have to read the book to find out just what that is (oooh mystery).
(Aka, the good stuff)
As well as helping me get the book to print (and in turn having my deep gratitude and a bit of my love), you can get your hands on some fancy rewards.
That's a lot of cash
£9,000 is a lot of money and every penny is accounted for. The money will go towards printing the book, additional rewards, packaging and shipping and fees and taxes.
If we manage to meet the £9,000 target (we shall party) there's some extra goodies up for grabs!
£10, 000 - MORE PRINTS - 2 extra prints for £10+ tiers
£11,000 - MORE PAGES, MORE COMICS - the books will have an extra 4 pages of delicious comic content added
£12,000 - SPOT UV - the cover will have spot uv (aka shiny bits) added to make it fancier. It'll catch the light and you'll be reminded of the good old days.
£13,000 - EVEN MORE PAGES - 4 more pages added!
£1 000 000 - PUPPIES - puppies
Risks and challenges
The majority of the work is already finished and I have a clear plan of what needs to be done. The only risk is that the book may be delayed at which point I will inform all backers as soon as this becomes an issue. The book will, as long as there isn't worldwide destruction, come to exist and it will be shiny.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
