About this project


The Story

JEFF is a typical teenaged boy spending the last week of summer vacation stressed about high school. It's a very familiar feeling of being a boy unprepared for the journey into a man’s world. After being mocked and ridiculed, Jeff is determined to find and steal the one item he’s told will transform any boy into a real man: His very first porno magazine.

Details

SMUT AND JEFF is not a porn story, it's a story about scarcity. It's an homage to the quest for those unattainable treasures of youth before the internet took hold of humanity. A time when search engines were librarians and encyclopedias. Beyond that, and unknown to many, there was a secret underground of information spoken softly in certain areas of the cafeteria and the movie theater parking lot. With enough information, a bold teenager might venture into an unknown neighborhood to purchase a hip hop album the stores wouldn't dare carry. SMUT AND JEFF is a tribute to those noble quests of the 80s, and the adventurous youth that dared embark on the adventure.

Please join us on a new quest as we create this story of scarcity and optimism, and preserve it for future generations.

Format

SMUT AND JEFF will be a full-color comic book miniseries released in five separate issues and printed at the standard US comic book size of 6.625" by 10.25" (16.83cm × 26.0cm). The combined story will be approximately 100 pages. To keep logistics simple and shipping costs down, all five issues will be shipped together after completion.

Funds

This Kickstarter project is to fund the entire SMUT AND JEFF series (not the first issue alone), and it'll be roughly 100 pages of story split between five issues. Funds will be used for fair creator page rates for artwork, coloring, lettering, production, printing, shipping, advertising, promo, fulfillment, etc. Once the project is complete, we'll also be pulling together a collected edition for paperback, and if possible, a hardcover edition. Additional funding beyond our goal will be very helpful in this effort. Additional funds will also be helpful with promo and marketing at every level. It's also possible we'll have a bit of profit. That'd be fantastic!

Character Designs

Eisner and Harvey Award winner Rob Guillory designed the main cast for SMUT AND JEFF, and he's also providing covers for the series. Gavin's taken Rob's designs and put his own twist on each and every one. The result is a wonderfully unique set of characters for our story. JEFF is the hero of the story and it's his journey we follow throughout. He's accompanied by his best friends DAX and SALLY. As for LEONARD, he's our main villain and in many ways, the real catalyst for the story.

Shipping

All items for US buyers include shipping. For international backers, please see Shipping Note for each package. Some items are available everywhere, others are limited to the US and Canada. We're a very small team of creators, and for each of us, time is as big a factor as the costs. We had to set a few limitations to make this project manageable (and possible).

Risks and challenges

Pencils inks for the story are by newcomer Gavin Guidry. SMUT AND JEFF will be his first professional credit, but as you can see in the sample pages, he's got the chops of a seasoned veteran. Scheduling is always difficult for such a large project, but we've been planning and developing this project for quite some time and we've done our best to account for delays and mistakes along the way. Kody's project SWEETS was one of the very first comics to hit Kickstarter and by all measures, was a success.

With any Kickstarter project, unexpected problems can occur. If/when that happens, we'll be as upfront and honest as possible as we push forward.
