The "Agilecartoons" series will be available as a printed comic book, ready in time for Christmas to give you some laughter and inspiration for your New Years resolution.

You'll get fifty pages, many of them unpublished cartoons, each with an opportunity to laugh - or to cry, to reflect, to ponder and to consider. 

Enjoy the book alone or take with your peers. Use it to invite discussion around misunderstandings, misapplication and outright antipatterns of agile ways of working.

What could go wrong?

Stretch Goal 1 (500€ - 1500€):

If we meet 500€ backing, the book will contain one additional cartoon for each €50 backing after €500, with a limit of 20 extra.

Stretch Goal 2 (1500€):

I'll work with an artist to help me improve my visual library (and rework the cartoons accordingly).

Risks and challenges

Agilecartoons has around 40 comics - almost half of them are unpublished.
My goal is to get enough material for this comic book by Mid October. Worst case, you get everything that I have what I have.
(CLEARED -> We have enough materials already!)

You can see my cartoon backlog, milestone plan and progress statistics here:

I assume that layouting and printing can be done within 1 month, which should be ample time. There's a small risk that version 1 of the prints doesn't meet my expectations, in which case I will do it again, which might cause up to 2 weeks delay.

Another risk is that due to the unpredictable duration of international shipment, you may not receive your copy in time for Christmas. I'm targeting a shipment date a good six weeks before Christmas and will keep you posted on progress frequently.
