Funded! This project was successfully funded on September 22, 2010.


BrainFood Comics is an Independent Publisher dedicated to putting out a diverse and exciting assortment of books! Please help us realize our dream!

BrainFood Comics was started back in January of 2009 by myself and Stephen Lindsay (Jesus Hates Zombies, Devil's Trail, Massive Awesome) as a means to publish our series "The Slightly Askew Adventures of Inspector Ham & Eggs". It was only a little over a year ago, but since then the outstanding group of BrainFood creators and I have worked towards making BrainFood Comics into something more.

Our goal shifted from a simple means to an end to an outlet for amazing indie talent! It began with the addition of Ben and Jeff Cohen and their hilarious book "Dinoman", and has since grown with Eben Burgoon and D.Bethel of the fantastic webcomic series "Eben 07"! We've even expanded our flagship series "Ham & Eggs" with spin-offs and one-shots including the upcoming "Buddy Cops", written by Chris Caravella and illustrated by myself!

This is where you guys come in. This is where we need your help! It may seem as though we've accomplished a good amount already, but we've only just begun. All of us have invested so much time, money and effort into this labor of love that we've lost track. We want to not only continue providing our beloved fans and readers with the quality content we are now, we want to raise the bar!

We cannot do this alone.

With your help we will be able to:

+ Deliver more great books, including trade paperbacks, hardcovers and the patented pamphlet issues!
+ Awesome BrainFood and BrainFood title merchandise like shirts, prints, pins, stickers and more!
+ Send out FREE samples to retailers, so they can see what we're about and carry our books to the local fans and readers!
+ Help fund our appearances at conventions across the country so that WE can come to YOU with all of the above and special con exclusives!

So it is with all of this that we humbly request your assistance. I am optimistic for the future of BrainFood and Independent comics across the globe! This is an exciting time to be a creator AND a fan, and we thank you all for being a part of it with us!

Thanks all!

Very best,

Lauren Monardo
President, BrainFood Comics
