Bara Emergency is a paysite for adults, featuring all kinds of illustrations, short 'one-shot' webcomics (and one longer on-going comic), and many, many sketches of cute beefy dudes kissin' other cute beefy dudes.
This Kickstarter campaign is to collect the best of the best of the comic shorts into one convenient volume. 140 pages in gorgeously printed b&w, plus one NEW, print volume only short story!!
I, the artist, writer, and general owner of this joint, have been working in adult art and comics for 5+ years and been a fan for just as long, if not longer.
Erotic comics, especially those serialized on the internet, tend to neglect any subject that isn't about cisgendered, white, heterosexual people having uncomfortable sex in the missionary position for the purpose of procreation. And when it's any variance of the above, 99% of the time it's played as a "fetish".
BE is here to help change that.
The short comics under the BE banner are an attempt to reflect the real experiences of myself (a very queer Latino transmasculine dude) and of the people close to me (many other PoC who are queer in many ways).
The characters in these shorts are some shade of genderqueer/trans, are people of color, and/or are very different from the normal 'porn body' type- Some are more bottom heavy, some are rounder in the middle, and some are straight-up aliens!
Printing: This is rounded up to include a test copy of the book, shipping for the books, and rush shipping if needed!
Shipping: This chunk of the pie is as large as it is to make absolutely sure everyone can get their books. Better safe than sorry!
Rewards: This combines the total cost of the various backer rewards, including the shipping to get those items to me so I can get em to you!
Kickstarter fees: Kickstarter's 5% fee, and payment processing fees (3%) combined. 8% of $2,000 is $160!
Stretch goals have been considered, but nothing written down as of yet. Likely stretch goals could include:
-Upgrades to to the book's quality (Nicer paper? Hardcover? SPOT GLOSS?!)
-Additional short stories added to the volume!
-More rewards spread throughout backer levels!!

Risks and challenges
Risks and challenges include the typical hindrances that can come with the printing process- printer being late, having to go through multiple preview copies, etc.
While the majority of the work for the book is done, any possible issues should be offset by the fact that the estimated delivery date is much farther out than would be normal for a print project (while the books could be done at the end of March and shipped by early April, issues could delay it to May- so we're setting the delivery date as May from the start).
I personally have worked on many print projects on a smaller scale and helped with many a friend's Kickstarter, so I believe that I am relatively well prepared to handle any issues that may arise.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
