Paint The Town Red is a noir-inspired rom-com about monster babes (of the more femme persuasion) who kiss, date and have dramatic pasts, presents and futures!  Paint the Town Red includes traditional favourite monsters: vampires, werewolves and demons all learning to try and co-exist with one another.  

This project is a work of love, a collaboration between two queer creators: Tasha Mukanik (Windy) and J Kiakas (Wallflower) most recently known as Windy & Wallflower.

This particular Volume follows the life of Winona "Winny" Barlowe as she comes to terms with her new life as a werewolf.  She is taken under the wing of Odile Brady, a seasoned werewolf themself, and the two maintain a shelter for wayward werewolves.  One night, however, they two are faced with a new dilemma, a lost and wounded vampire in need of shelter...

The book we consider to be rated 16+ It contains swears, violence and sexual themes.

This volume is going to have a matte cover, perfect bound and in standard trade format.  The interior is going to be black and white (greyscale) and about 100 pages in length! 



 With your help! And with helping us reach our goal, you can get a copy of the PDF, the book itself, or even more!

The Werewolf Pack Tier lets you also have a taste of our other stories--Included are 3 other books! (So, yes, you get 4 BOOKS IN TOTAL!)

  •  A Tempo: a short, queer comic about a time witch and a one-man-band who fall in love. This was our first collaborative comic, it stands at 30+ full colour pages.
  •  Sapphire: a part of the Prism Knights short stories by J. This one follows a polyamorous relationship between a knight, a royal and a dragon.
  • And either Violins, Violas or Violoncellos: a part of a trilogy which you can read in any order! A series of illustrated novels beautifully illustrated and written by J.
If you happen to already have one of these and are still interested in pledging to get the other two, arrangements can be made to replace duplicates you might already have.  This will only be addressed once the Kickstarter is funded, though!

There are also two commission tiers: from either Tasha or J! Tasha's commissions will be in digital format, and J's will be inked on paper, so you'll get it along with your books! We'll draw anything you want--yourself, your character, a character you like, you name it. There's a limited amount, though, so get them before they're all gone!

Risks and challenges

Both creators have funded successful book projects before, which were fulfilled equally as successfully. The biggest risk is a delay due to printing times and shipment. Should any other delays arise, these delays are always communicated to backers to keep you in the loop every step of the way!
