Wilde Life Volume One

$87,517

2,297

A full color, 150+ page graphic novel about a writer who rents a haunted house off Craigslist. Come get the first collected edition of this popular webcomic.

Wilde Life is an ongoing webcomic, available at wildelifecomic.com. It follows Oscar, a young journalist from Chicago as he rents a strange old house off Craigslist, meets his surprise incorporeal roommate, makes not-friends with a red-headed werewolf, and helps his neighbor sort out some unfinished business.

With plenty of monsters and strange situations, Wilde Life blends horror with humor into an unexpected adventure set in the woods of rural Oklahoma.

New to Wilde Life? You can read the entire thing at wildelifecomic.com! Here is just a small sample of panels. 

This Kickstarter aims to fund printing and shipping of Volume 1 of Wilde Life. The volume will collect the first three chapters of Wilde Life, as well as additional illustrations -- including some new, exclusive artwork -- in a perfect bound softcover book, 150+ pages long and in full, vibrant color. 

Book dimensions: Approx 7.5x11 inches.
 
 
 

About the Creator

Pascalle Lepas is a writer and illustrator from Tulsa, Oklahoma. In 2014 she completed a 1,000 page space opera called Zap! and is also the creator of the popular Princess King meme-comic. She currently writes and illustrates Wilde Life from a tiny cottage on the edge of the woods.

Wilde Life is published online by Hiveworks.

 

Risks and challenges

As with any book project, risks include printing and fulfillment delays, as well as funding issues. I have worked to mitigate these risks -- the book is complete, and I have additional fulfillment options lined up if the Kickstarter should require it. I have also audited my budget to ensure that I will have sufficient funds to deliver all rewards.

I have already successfully fulfilled a funded Kickstarter campaign related to webcomic publishing before, so I have experience in self-publishing and delivering rewards. If the campaign should have more backers than I am prepared to handle on my own, I have a contingency plan already set up with Hiveworks to make sure everyone gets their rewards in a timely manner.

If any delays do occur for unforeseen circumstances or emergencies, I will keep Kickstarter backers updated, not only through KS, but also directly on the Wilde Life website and across my social media platforms.
