Kyofu No Tora #1 Comic Book
A 24 page supernatural/action comic book that i was inspired to create at the start of my battle with Anxiety and the fear it creates.
This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Sat, April 13 2019 2:37 PM UTC +00:00.
Hello and welcome to my Kick starter campaign. I am raising £3000 to print, package and ship 500 copies of my new comic book "Kyofu No Tora" #1. Please note that if my campaign does not succeed i DON'T keep a penny of what is pledged and you keep your money.
My new comic project was inspired by a very scary hyper panic attack which led to me diagnosed with General Anxiety and Panic Disorder. After trying very hard to battle my demons and face my fears, it became the inspiration to create a character who represented those things hence why the title "Kyofu No Tora" translates in Japanese to "Fear Tiger".
Kyofu No Tora is a supernatural action comic very much inspired by comics like "Spawn" and "hellboy". Our main character "Tora" is a demon tiger who is accidentally released into the modern world, with the sole purpose of punishing the lowest of the low using their worst fears (as well as his awesome claws) against them, bringing questionable justice to a world full of thieves, rapists, kidnappers etc.
Now what do I need the money for you ask? "wow £3000 seems like a lot to ask for a comic". Well, that £3000 will help me to print 500 FULL COLOUR copies of my comic book in the best quality I can find. Not only will £3000 cover the printing costs, it will also cover worldwide postage costs for each physical pledge, and it will also cover enough packaging to safely post my comic book anywhere in the world. As you may know there is also a 10% fee I have to pay at the end of a hopefully successful campaign that is also taken in to consideration when calculating my goal.
Now about myself. I am Aaron Wood, Artist, Designer, Father/Family man and a big geek. I have been creating art for most of my life (on and off) and in my school days I dreamed of creating comic books and art projects. Now that dream is possible with the kind help of my fellow comic book and art fans. What have I got to show for myself you might ask?, Well in 2015 i completely self published my first comic book "Trick 'R Pete" which was more of a parody of the Sam character from the movie "trick 'r treat". That comic book became best seller on drivethrucomics for several weeks beating Judge Dredd, Dungeons and Dragons and more. Trick 'r Pete was also given a very lengthy positive review along with a 9/10 star rating by Starburst Magazine. Since my debut comic book I took a break from comics to work on character design and other design and illustration work.
That's enough boring facts about me myself and I. I hope you like the look of my new comic book project/labor of love, and if you pledge today even if it's £1, I will be forever great full and appreciative.
Thank you for checking out my Kick Starter Campaign, Have an awesome day.

Risks and challenges
I have tried to avoid any possible risks. As long as I make my goal I will be able to print and post each and every pledge. The only possible risk is that something may arrive to you late if you are in another country, this is why I have tried to give myself plenty of time to ship each item out to everyone worldwide. Once I go to print the book is out of my hands and in theirs, the printers I am going to have a brilliant track record so there shouldn't be a problem with late handover or miss prints.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
