Wow! I’m still speechless… Pizzeria Disgusto came to life very quickly! We funded the book in just 17 hours!

During the last weeks we also reached two stretch goals. Now all backers of the book will get a free pizza sticker and a free beer coaster with their reward (from "The Book" level upwards).

And of course you'll get the limited Kickstarter-exclusive screen print. So here's what the Kickstarter-package looks like :)

The book + the exclusive print + pizza sticker + beer coaster

About Me

Hi there! My name is Michael Hacker and I'm an illustrator and comic artist from Austria.

I have worked for bands such as Queens of the Stone Age, Green Day, Kvelertak, Dinosaur Jr., Mastodon and The Melvins. My illustrations appear in magazines like Vice, Kerrang!, SLAM, Nido and GEOlino.

My work is heavily influenced by comics and I have always had a humorous and narrative approach to illustrating. Basically I want to tell stories and make other people laugh.

Another vital element of my work are puns and wordplays. I love to take things literally and give them a new meaning when combined with my illustrations. Pizzeria Disgusto will be full of those...

Pizzeria Disgusto

Pizzeria Disgusto is a collection of 60 unique illustrations about the weird and funny side of Italian cuisine. It's 80 pages full of illustrated puns and wordplays about Pizza, Pasta and other Italian delicacies. Here are some appetizers… Buon appetito!

Stretch Goals

I’m still speechless… Pizzeria Disgusto already came to life! We funded the book in just 17 hours!

To be honest I didn’t expect to think about stretch goals so early. But I spent the afternoon putting together this list of possible extras...

Pizza Infografica
Pizza Infografica

If we reach the FREE stretch goals every backer (of “The Book” reward and all rewards above) gets a free goodie added to her or his reward.

For example if we make it to 12K every backer gets a 21cm (8″) pizza sticker for free. If we make it to 15K you’ll get the pizza sticker AND a beer coaster for free. If we make it to 20K there will be a Pizzeria Disgusto enamel pin available as a new reward to chose from. Or you can add one to your current reward.

  • Stretch Goal #1 = 12.000,-- €: huge FREE PIZZA STICKER (21cm) for all backers of the book!
  • Stretch Goal #2 = 15.000,-- €: FREE Pizzeria Disgusto BEER COASTER for all backers of the book!
  • Stretch Goal #3 = 20.000,-- €: limited Pizzeria Disgusto ENAMEL PIN available
  • Stretch Goal #4 = 25.000,-- €: four-page PIZZERIA DISGUSTO MENU with even more puns and wordplays. Printed in the cheapest quality possible! So it looks exactly like one of these Pizzeria ads you find in your letterbox every day :)

Your support - What I Need & What You Get

I hope to raise EUR 9.500,-- mainly to pay for printing the book (offset print) and to cover packaging and shipping costs as well as fees and taxes. And of course financing all the rewards you can choose from :)

If the campaign exceeds its funding goal, there'll be some great stretch goals: more pages, a making-of book, free goodies for those who already backed...

If the goal is not reached before 9th June 2017, you won't be charged anything. You only pay if the project reaches its goal before the end of the campaign.

With your support, I hope to be able to make the Pizzeria Disgusto come to life!

If you have any questions or suggestions just let me know.

If you want to support my project please share this campaign and help me spread the word. Tell your friends about Pizzeria Disgusto. Or the chef at your favourite pizza place. Or share it on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter…

Italiano

Pizzeria Disgusto è un nuovo fumetto di Michael Hacker, una raccolta di illustrazioni sul lato strano e divertente della cucina italiana. Sono 80 pagine piene di giochi di parole illustrati su Pizza, Pasta e altre prelibatezze italiane.

Supportando il Kickstarter sarai il primo ad avere il libro e mi aiuterai a renderlo una realtà. Tutto il denaro sarà investito nella stampa, spedizione e realizzazione dei premi, alcuni dei quali saranno disponibili esclusivamente durante questa campagna.

Grazie mille e... buon appetito!

Risks and challenges

All illustrations and nearly the whole layout for Pizzeria Disgusto are already complete. So if the project is successfully funded I just have to do some minor design work and the book is ready to print. I'll be using a local printer in Austria so that I can easily manage the printing process and ensure the delivery of a high-quality book.

There are certain unpredictable risks regarding printing and shipping, so unexpected delays could still happen. In such an unlikely case, backers will be informed and given updates on the reasons for the delay.
