Ménage à 3, the webcomic at Ma3comic.com, is a sexy, HBO-style romantic comedy that follows the lives of Gary, a shy 29-year-old comic-book geek, and his way-sexier-than-he-is roommates—adventurous, flat-broke bisexual Zii and DiDi, a sweet, naïve amazon with an unusual problem. And once Zii becomes Gary’s “wing-girl,” all three of them are set to have wild adventures with a lot of sex appeal, a lot of laughs, and a little bit of heart.
Here are more samples, as shown online!
Ménage à 3, Volume 6, collects the 6th year of the webcomic, Ménage à 3. Strips included are #751 (June 6, 2013) to #900 (June 17, 2014). The book will also include a five-page, print-exclusive, “what-if” bonus story, continuing the series begun in Volume 5: Gary and his possible future wives! :)
Wait wait... Volume 6??
Yup! We’ve been at this for six years now! We’ve been putting out a volume each year, but this is the first year we’re allowed as Canadians to use Kickstarter to help us fund our yearly print volume. We’ve got more books than ever to produce this year and lots of moving expenses, so we need your help!
To print 2,000 copies of this first book (postcards included) at roughly $1.75 CAD apiece, we’ll need to raise approximately $3,500 CAD. The postage costs and shipping material required to ship half of them will mean raising approximately $10,000 CAD total.
We ship EVERYWHERE in the world! You just have to add the extra amount for shipping outside Canada.
Note: CAD? What's that? Canadian moolah! Don't be afraid of it; it's actually a good thing for most of you! American money is worth more at the present, so once the conversion is done, your pledge will be lower than you thought!
What are these other books of yours, Sticky Dilly Buns and Sandra on the Rocks?
Sticky Dilly Buns and Sandra on the Rocks are spin-offs of Ménage à 3. At the end of July 2014, each will be ready to have their first book printed. We’re hoping to reach our stretch goals to make this possible.
In Sticky Dilly Buns, Dillon has moved in with his best friend and fellow actress, Amber, a former adult film star trying to go mainstream. Amber doesn’t need to fear any advances from Dillon, who is gay and interested in the hunky Jerzy, who lives next door. Things get more complicated when Ruby, Amber’s straight-laced younger sister, moves in. Can Dillon help Ruby ease up? Can Dillon learn anything from Ruby? Will prudish Ruby survive her discovery of yaoi? Don’t be too sure you can guess the answers!
In Sandra on the Rocks, Sandra, a struggling model’s assistant, gets a massive promotion when famous photographer Domenico decides to make her the new freckled face for his modeling agency. But Sandra has to adapt fast to Paris and the big time. Domenico’s assistant Tatiana has her on a leash (although she’d rather whip Domenico with it), and veteran model Zoé tells her to quit when she walks in the door! Can she last even a week at this job? Well... the hot baker next door might make it easier. ;)
Pixie Trix does other comics, but they won’t be ready for books anytime soon. Maybe we’ll stretch to them if things go really well. :)

Risks and challenges
Pixie Trix Comix is no stranger to making books: Ménage à 3 Volume 6 is actually the TENTH book we’ve published, and Gisèle’s 19th. Pages are done; covers and postcards are being colored. The only delay we could have is a rogue snowstorm in the middle of the Canadian Summer, or shipping delays. Mostly shipping delays.
Pixie Trix is not responsible for import/duty fees that could be incurred by your home country. (We haven't had any reports from buyers so far, but we can't assure you 100% that it won't happen.)Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
