Zinetendo is a Nintendo fanzine consisting of both comics and illustrations. The twenty-eight artists involved with the project have been given free reign to interpret their favorite Nintendo games and characters in the style of their choosing.

Several of the works are already complete and reflect the diverse taste and interests of our contributors. So, whether you like Dr. Mario, The Legend of Zelda, or Battle Toads, Zinetendo’s bound to include some of your favorites.

How your funds will be divvied up:

  •  $3,400 covers printing expenses. The money will be used to cover the cost of books for backers and to provide artists with copies of books to sell. We are using a wonderful local printer to ensure the finest quality book! 
  • $1,380 will go towards paying the artists, who have so generously submitted to the zine. *If our stretch goal of $14,000 is met then artists will each make an additional $50.00!*
  • $1,000 will cover the cost of shipping.
  • $320 will be spent on the production of Kickstarter rewards.
  • $700 will cover Kickstarter fees
  • Any excess funds will be divided evenly among Zinetendo’s contributors, because, ultimately, the project aims to support our artists.

Risks and challenges

Shipping books and rewards in a timely manner will be the biggest challenge. While I'll aim to send the materials by October 2015, please be patient if some items take a little longer to arrive. As the editor of the project, I assure you that I'll be adamant about keeping our backers in the loop about any perceived delays. We thank you for the support and understanding!
