 HOW FAR WE CAN TAKE THIS?? MORE PLEDGES MEANS MORE COMIC BOOK CONVENTIONS! THIS IS SO EXCITING! WE STILL HAVE SO MUCH TIME TO GO! OUR NEW GOAL IS 5K AND YOU CAN HELP!

Mike and Drew want to raise $1250 to print and promote The Baku including attending a few comic conventions in 2011. It's a low goal that we hope to see blown away with your efforts.

For months Mike and Drew have been working on this book. From script to pencils to inks and edits, they have guided this book into the finest work possible.

A little sneak peek by clicking here

The rewards are Insane. From Signed Copies to Original Art and everything in between. There's something for everyone to enjoy! Your support is invaluable towards our goal of bringing this amazing story to the masses. Thank You.

In answer to some questions:

The book will be 28-32 pages black and white in standard comic size. By definition it is a One-Shot. But we have discussed other stories with the characters. Only time will tell.
