Fred the Mustard Packet Does the Scottish Play- IN PRINT!

PRINT! PRINT! PRINT! PRINT! PRINT! 

That was the chant that I heard at AZ Eventure Con at Jesse James Comics earlier this year. While people appreciate that they can access Fred the Mustard Packet online and in apps, they want it on their bookshelves. 

We are seeking your help to make this dream happen, a full-color graphic novel starring Fred the Mustard Packet!

This story is inspired, slightly, by real life. But, it spins out of reality very quickly. The graphic novel takes the simple idea of a corndog shack competing with a pizza parlor and heightening it to the level of cosmic calamity. 

Inspired by reality? Yes, early in our married life, my wife and I went to the NJ/NY area to see my East Coast family. We spent an evening in NYC and took in a Broadway show. It was her first time seeing a Broadway show, and she LOVES the theatre. We were enticed by the ads we saw for a one-person performance of Shakespeare's "Macbeth". It had good reviews. We took our seats. Show time! A muddy performance instills boredom. She fell asleep a couple of times. And, we lament that we didn't go to see "Kinky Boots". 

I was so upset that my wife's first Broadway show left her insanely bored that I spent a couple of years writing and illustrating a comic book about a sentient mustard packet attempting to do that same show himself. It is my firm belief that my ridiculous comic book is more lively than the performance we saw in NYC that night.

In this tale I promise a roller coaster of narrative action unlike any that you've experienced before. 

Thank you for your consideration.

Risks and challenges

The risks are mainly in actually delivering the goods. It can be difficult. However, I took orders and shipped books for three years for the Puppetry Store. I've been through the business mail class provided by USPS and I know how to handle bulk book orders. Also, so that there are no surprises, the shipping cost is built directly into the backing dollar amount. What you see is what get. There will be no hidden shipping charges. And, I know that international shipping is a beast, so I'm just leaving that out... sorry Germany!
