The Pub Crawl Anthology is a collection of comics that celebrate one of the most ubiquitous story settings of all time. Bars, pubs, clubs, taverns, cantinas, saloons; whatever they’re called, they always make for a good story, and great storytelling. The comics in this collection feature a wide variety of genres, themes, and tones, but with one thing in common: they all take place, at least in part, at the pub.  

This book is brought to you by a talented and diverse group of creators from around the world. It consists of twelve brand new, original 8-page stories. Genres span from horror to history, slice-of-life to science fiction, and beyond. It comes in at around 134 pages, consisting of black-and-white comics, pin-up illustrations, drink pairings, and more!

The book is already finished; our goal now is to raise $6,500 to print and ship it. Here's a breakdown:

Anything raised beyond our minimum goal will go toward our next volume, but if we reach our stretch goal of $14,000.00 we will be able to pay our incredible creative team for all their hard work!

It can be difficult to sell anthology collections in the current direct comics market. Kickstarter has stepped in as a proven model for getting specialized books such as this directly into the hands of readers. Crowdfunding also allows for a relatively short production cycle and allows us to get our book to you as fast as possible.

Risks and challenges

Because all artwork and design has already been completed for "The Pub Crawl Anthology," timely printing and shipping will be our main concern.

Once our funding goal has been fulfilled, the book will be sent immediately for printing. As soon as the proofs are approved, the book can be shipped to you!
