About


Demons are real. They pop in and out of time spreading discord and strife. Any change they cause could destroy history as we know it. 

 Tart Acid and her fellow Toxic Fruit soldiers are the only people protecting us from utter chaos. 

 Tart is a fantasy comic for readers who like supernatural adventure... 

 ...the mysteries of time-travel... 

 ...and good old fashioned fun of comics.

 This campaign is raising funds to print copies of Tart 8 & 9 ( the first two issues of Season 2),  These issues follow Tart Acid, Lemon La Morgue and Gloom Tangerine on solo missions to stem a spike in demonic incursions ordered by The Queen of Hell. 

WHAT ARE WE MAKING

  • Two individual comic issues. 
  • 48 total pages of story.
  • The first two chapters of Tart Season 2!
  • Exclusive Lemon La Morgue Enamel Pin.

WHAT IF YOU'RE BRAND NEW TO TART?

You're in good hands. Our previous backers have always supported us so strongly that we've been able to print extra copies of the first editions of our books. So you can catch up on the entire 9 issue series all at once, and most importantly, for cover price!

Whether you need the entire run or just the next two issues, we have you covered!

THE CREATIVE TEAM 

 2020 will be the biggest year ever for Tart, as we have been invited to join the publishing line of Scout Comics.  

This partnership will introduce our book to a brand new audience in the Direct Market. As proud of this development as we are, we know it would not have happened without the support of the Kickstarter Community.

Our backers have given us the resources to continue working, and the momentum to be picked up. We've invested the income from previous Tart Kickstarters into completion of the art on the first two issues of Tart Season two (Tart #8 & #9). We need your help to move on to the next stage: Printing them!

Any funds in excess of our goal will be reinvested into creating art for the next three issues of Tart.

The Rewards 

Risks and challenges

We are using a new printer this campaign, so it is always possible snags will arise neither part foresees. But this printer is within driving distance of Kevin so if any situations occur we should be able to handle them efficiently.

We have completed seven successful Kickstarter campaigns, and delivered each of them on time. We plan on keeping our record spotless. That said, life isn't perfect and if a situation we did not foresee occurs we promise to keep the lines of communication open and clear.

    Catch Up Tier

    In a perfect world we would have introduced you to Tart already. But because of the generosity of our Kickstarter Supporters, our failure to do that isn't going to cost you. Every campaign they have helped us print enough books that we have issues ready to catch a new reader up to the story without breaking the bank. Back this tier and we will deliver the Tart Vol 1 Trade paperback (containing issues 1-3) and individual issues of Tart 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 & 9. To keep costs down these will be sent medial mail so extra prints, pins etc can not be included. US Shipping included. International Backers: We know this shipping cost is rough. A collection of Season 1, Tart 1-7 will be available to preorder at the beginning of the year from Scout Comics, so you can get these issues without paying for shipping if you want to wait. It is solely up to you.
