I am Elin Winkler, the publisher and editor-in-chief at Radio Comix. We are a small-press comic company that has been around since 1997, publishers of such books as Furrlough, Genus, Genus: Male, as well as graphic novels like Bureau of Mana Investigation, Ebin & May, Sebastian & the Beast and Eureka. We are a small company of three people (myself, Will Allison and Joe Rosales), and we all do anything and everything needed to keep Radio Comix running in our free time between our day jobs. Making comics is our passion and our dream and we have been lucky enough to get to make them for seventeen years.

Genus is one of the longest running anthropomorphic comic anthologies in the world. Debuting in 1993, it has been published regularly for two decades and has featured some of the very best talent in the anthropomorphic genre! We hope to fund the printing and shipping of the latest issue. This issue is already completed and at the printers- now we just need the printing money!This campaign is simply to get the money to print an already completed book.

This issue features a cover by Joe Rosales, and interior stories and art by Agouti-Rex, J. K. Blacklin, Terrie Smith, Megan Giles, DAQ, Shon Howell, Joe Rosales and our Japanese artists TRUMP, Michiyoshi and Kolshica! It's 48 pages of perfect bound sexy furry comics, wrapped up in a matte cardstock cover.

In recent years, the only comic distributor in North America, Diamond Distribution, has made it much harder for small-press companies like ours to be carried in local comic shops. We understand that it's just business and the comic industry was hit by the recession too, but we also know that our fans will still want our books even if they have to get them directly from us. We want to continue producing Genus for as long as possible, and this is your chance to support this project directly!

All money raised for this book will go towards the printing cost and cost of shipping the books from the printers to us, and from us to you. Should we exceed our goal, any extra money will be used to print our next comic projects (Genus: Male #14, currently in production and Furrlough #194, also currently being worked on). We know this Kickstarter is short, but we want to be able to have the book printed in time for our first convention of 2015, so please share and spread the word!

Risks and challenges

We have been publishing comics for over 17 years now and have produced hundreds of printed comics and graphic novels on schedule over the years. This comic issue is already completed and already in the printers' hands- they are ready to print as soon as they receive payment for the books. We have an excellent relationship with our printers and they are capable of turning a book around within a three week period of time. Also, since this issue #96 of this book, we have already printed 95 previous issues over the past 20+ years. The only real risks we can foresee would be shipping delays. We are a small company of three people, so we have hopefully built in enough shipping time into our rewards tiers to get everything packed up and shipped by our small staff!
