STRETCH GOAL!!

As a thanks for helping us to reach our initial goal, everyone will be receiving a 40 pack of digital stickers which you can use as avatars or elsewhere.  They look like this, but will not be through the Line platform. We also have another surprise if we reach the $2500 mark:

IT'S AN ACTIVITY BOOK FOR ALL AGES, KINDA

It’s time for the quinquennial Surf-Off at Surf City and Cyko KO (pronounced Pyscho-Kay-Oh), Peachy Keen, and Meemop are on their way for a much-needed vacation! But wait—how the shazbot is it that the van broke down in the spooky sector of Creep City? With nowhere to go, they decide to trek to Uncle Space Toaster’s haunted house for a night of monsters, mayhem and mystery! 

Cyko KO is an infectiously fun character that is great for kids and adults of all ages. A comic book adventure that you can color, this is a true activity book that uses your brain and body to challenge your friends and family! It’s a fun-filled ride with mystery, recipes, lessons and light fitness! Includes perforated pages for easy display and coloring.  Like this:

Or this:

See? Your friend or UNLUCKY family member has to EXERCISE while you sit and solve a puzzle.  Simple, right?  Make THEM do the work, mwahahaha! NOTE: Challenges are completely optional.

In the 64 pages, there's an original Cyko KO story, "Night of the Batghost", a very throwback, fun mystery for all ages. Jeepers!  Here's a little preview:

 

 

SO WHAT'S THE STORY HERE AND WHY ARE YOU ASKING FOR MY MONEY, FELDMAN?

After launching Cyko KO on Line Webtoon as one of the first animated comics on that platform, I thought that Cyko KO would be great in print, a real way to rediscover my indie roots doing print books.  But I didn't just want to do any ordinary comic.  So I called up this GREAT publisher called Alterna Comics who has been publishing indie titles for over 10 years and even had titles on the New York Times Bestseller's List.  After some rambling on my end, Peter Simeti, the main guy at Alterna, managed to get a word in edgewise and said that he liked Cyko KO a lot and that we should do  a book together. 

Read the animated comic on Webtoon!

What I like most about Alterna is their dedication to creator-owned comics and daring marketing efforts. They're even launching a line of newsprint comics and newsstand distribution! I mean, like, ZOINKS!!We decided on what you see here: a 64-page comic book you can color with some fun activities that you can do with your friends or family.  It's all very Hanna Barbera-influenced, which makes it a lot of fun.  In fact, Peter described Cyko KO "as if Deadpool joined the Hanna Barbera universe". Or something like that.  He then called me "really cool" and we had a good laugh.  Okay, that last sentence is actually not true, but the Deadpool part is.

WHAT DO YOU NEED TO DO?

I am seeking $2,000 to help with the production of the book.  Anything over will be used amp it up big time, making it a better beast with added pages, stickers and anything else that will make it awesome! I'm really excited about this, as I have been wanting to do something like this for years! Plus, there will be some great signings where you can put me on the spot to do my own challenges!

WHAT DO BACKERS GET?

Holy cow, where do I even start?!  Of course there's the book, stickers, cinch sacks, rubber change purses and tshirts.  Some of the REALLY cool stuff includes you as a guest character in the next print issues (I signed with Alterna to do more books), and even a pair of my sweaty socks, totally NOT kidding with that (don't be so quick to judge, I might smell like cookies, you know! NOTE: Feldman does not smell like cookies).  Take a look at some of the rewards here:

 

 

 

 

 

Anyway, I hope you consider being a part of this and thanks for reading this far! See you soon!  

Mega thanks to Hans Karl for the awesome music in the animated trailer and super thanks to Luke Poling for the Kickstarter video with me in it. Btw, that "random kid" in the video---I sent him back to his parents. ;)

Risks and challenges

The book is due at the printer by June 1st and will be delivered, as the solicitation has already happened with distributors and will be out on September 1, 2017. The book is completed! I have never been late with any project. Ever. My reputation is too valuable.

I am in constant communication with Alterna Comics who will be packaging and handling all aspects of printing and distribution. Their success in the comics industry over 10 years speaks for itself.

The printer is ultimately responsible for the final book. And while there could always be issues, they're always on time and deliver on schedule. There are too many players involved for any one person to fall down on the job. Barring a natural disaster, sickness, or death (and even then I've provided instructions for its continuation) this book will be delivered.

    2nd Black Level: A Walk On Character

    I'll create a character based on you that will be written into the next Cyko KO storyline! I signed with Alterna for their newsprint line and can write you into one of the Cyko KO issues for next year as a "walk-on" character where your character appears in a page. This includes designing what your unique character will look like and where it will be placed. You're gonna be BIG, baby!

    3rd Black Level: The Head of Cyko KO!

    I LOVE to make stuff! The latest is a head that I had created and 3d printed (thanks to Dean Jones and Dtown 3d). I will mold it and rotocast it so that it is hollow and you can do whatever you like with it, like fill it with candy or loose, tiny-sized coins (it's a small hole). I'll choose the color: red, blue and yellow, but I'm only making a handful of these before my wife throws me out (just kidding).

    Ninja Level: Fan Team Up Issue with YOU!

    Okay, I have to admit that this is pretty cool. Alterna Comics has decided to publish a bi-monthly newsprint title of Cyko Ko for 2018. I know this is going nuts, but wait for it. How about I put YOU in the comic? Not a walk-on role, but the actual storyline will include you as a starring character where you team up with Cyko KO!!! I know, right?!!

    How about we then make the plotlines totally whackadoo, like take the old Hostess Twinkie comic book ads combined with the school PSA comics you used to get. Maybe we'll end up with something like helping Cyko KO stop man-eating cupcakes from devouring children, something like that? And guess what----you're at the center of it! Are you in? I am!!
