I've been doing a new webcomic anthology, and asking my friends to pitch ideas and write all kinds of crazy stories. As we've gone along, I've noticed a trend for ideas involving Cats Committing Crimes. Cat embezzling (mouse treats mostly). Cat Burglars (bank heists!) Cats doing grave robbing (mummy smugglers).
Sometimes the cats are anthropomorphic, walking and talking and driving cars, and other times, they are the non-verbal housepets we all know and love, still managing to sell little bags of catnip on the down low.
So, I thought to myself, what a wonderful world this would be, if I collected all of these great cat crime stories into one book. Or two books. Or seventeen. We’ll see how it goes. I’ve got plenty more ideas. Cat’s hide a body (weekend at Cat Bernie’s). Cats do a treason (the jury are all mice!) and even Cats Destroy The Spacetime Continuum.
Blending the line between ‘oh, I’ve seen my cat do that, uh huh.’ and ‘that’s absolutely ridiculous, but certainly how cats would foil an alien invasion’ this book is the perfect collection for cat lovers, people allergic to cats, or even people who have only just heard about cats.
Have you heard about cats? They commit crimes. Sometimes. In this book, definitely!
Risks and challenges
This will be my third kickstarter, so I think I've got the basic process down. I'm hoping that your money will pay my bills for long enough I can finish drawing oodles of silly exciting cat comics, print them up, and mail them to you. The only risk is time, and the only reward is fun.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
