 -----------------------

    Hi, I'm Dave Kellett, and I'm making a huge collection of pug comic strips called
    PUGS UNLEASHED! Here are the details:
  • 250+ PAGES!
  • COMPLETELY IN COLOR! 
  • 8.5” x 9” (216mm x 229mm)! 
  • PUG HAIR (most likely) NOT INCLUDED!

This book is the ultimate pug collection: Full color, gorgeous, and combining new comics, new pug stuff never seen online, aaaaand the newly-colored collections "Pugs: God's Little Weirdos," and "Pugs: They Think They're People"! All in one big book! And looking so dang good!

Want to back the book? Here's a quick guide to rewards! (And to help, the highlighted item on each level indicates the additional reward from the previous level!)

In addition to the book, higher reward tiers will also be receiving awesome items such as...

Planning on backing at the BEST IN BREED or BEST IN SHOW levels, and would like a piece of pug original comic art? Check the availability on this chart. It'll be first-come, first-pick, based on when you pledge the Kickstarter! So jump in quick without thinking, just like a pug would! 

We're planning to ship your book out by August, using USPS. And, because we'll be shipping direct from the studio, each package will be getting a little smooch on its way out the door. EXTRA SMOOCHES FOR YOU, BASICALLY. 

We're charging *exactly what it costs us* to ship. So if you live in London or Sydney or Berlin, the shipping, alas, is what it is. Check out the chart below to help you decide which tier gives you the most bang for your buck:

Risks and challenges

I've run four successful Kickstarters in the past, all of which delivered fun projects to backers.

Since this is is my 5th Kickstarter, and my 16th book overall, I'm feeling confident about the project. But I do know that *unexpected hiccups* can pop up along the way, in production and in fulfillment. Should any problems or delays arise with the PUGS UNLEASHED book, backers can expect to be kept well-informed with regular updates until the problem is fixed.

============

THE BOOK ITSELF is being produced at one of the best book printers in the world, so the quality should be really nice. And because I want this book to be perfect, I'm going to be watchin' production like a hawk: A nervous, nervous, anxiety-prone hawk.

ADDITIONAL BACKER REWARDS are all being produced by vendors I’ve worked with before, and I’ve been very happy with the quality of their work.
