Howdy, loves! So you know how I write things like articles and books and poems? Well, check this out: I also write comic books. (And I publish them via my indie publishing company, Oneshi Press). Right now, I’m raising funds to print my very first standalone comic book over at Kickstarter!
PACK is a gritty comic book series that tells the tale of the 6 stray dogs—and 1 stray man—who put crime under the fang. In Brooklyn, where gentrification is king and corruption runs deep, the only way to stay safe is to assume everyone is on the take. On such lawless streets, these pups protect the innocent.
But their vigilantism draws attention from all the wrong places. Politicians, city planners, press, and police start to close in, looking to put a stop to the PACK’s reign of brutal justice. Soon, one rookie cop must try choose a side before it’s too late…
About PACK #01: Humility
Each member of the PACK—both the dogs and the man—has a backstory. Some are tragic, some are mysterious…and each one will be told in its own standalone issue of PACK.
Oneshi Press is raising funds to print 1,000 copies of the first 24-page issue of this seven-part comic book series: PACK #01: Humility. Humility is the smallest and newest member of the PACK. A Chihuahua–Bull Terrier mix who doesn’t really live up to his name. He’s proud, fierce, and notorious for riding the mastiff Chastity like his steed.
In PACK #01: Humility, readers will learn where this proud little ball of energy came from, how he became a member of the PACK, and where these vigilantes fit into the Brooklyn streetscape.
What We’ll Get
The writing, art, and lettering for PACK #01: Humility are already 100% complete! The pages have been published in 3 parts, in 3 issues of the Oneshi Press Quarterly Anthology. Now, it’s time for Humility to get his own 24-page, standalone comic book!
We need to raise funds to print PACK #01: Humility! With your backing, we’ll produce 1,000 printed copies of the standard comic-book-size issue. That should be enough to send out to backers with some copies left over to bring to conventions, sell on the Oneshi Press website, and send out to press, comic shops, and elsewhere!
Your support will help us get the word about these brave vigilante dogs out into the world, and get this gritty comic book series off to a paw-sitively excellent start! (Sorry. Couldn’t resist a “paws” pun.)
All our backers will receive PACK #01: Humility, in digital or printed form! We’re also excited to offer rewards like shwag packs of stickers and postcards, signed art prints, original sketches of the dogs of the PACK, cameo appearances in future issues, and even original penciled pages of PACK #01: Humility!
You’ll also get the warm, fuzzy feeling of supporting an indie comic and the team behind it! Personally, we love warm fuzzies, especially when they’re attached to dogs. Don’t you? Head over to the Kickstarter to support it with some funds or by sharing it on your social media! Every little bit helps!
