We are raising funds to help my Snarc comic book project come to life. Snarc started out as a comic strip in the Montana Tech Technocrat newspaper in 1982. I dropped out of engineering school and re-entered the US Army, but I still held on to the dream of reviving the character and putting him in his own comic book. The project became possible when I met and started working with Gary Dumm, one of Harvey Pekar's primary illustrators on American Splendor. Then, when my son Byron surprised me at Christmas with a bust of Snarc that he had made with his 3D printer, I was motivated to bring Snarc back into existence. Editor George Verongos came on board the Snarc team a few months back. The funds we raise from Kickstarter will help us pay for the artwork and printing costs for the comic book and turn my lifelong dream into a reality.
Risks and challenges
The comic book business is rough and competitive and can be cost prohibitive. We have created a substantial buzz already through social media and direct mailing to comic book shops across the USA. We have saved enough money to get started with the artwork and now we are looking for funds to pay for the printing of the comic books.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
