It has been an amazing week. Pablo the Gorilla funded after 72 hours. That means I head into San Diego Comic-con to promote an already successful campaign. Big thanks to my family, friends and new backers.
However, this is not the end. As the campaign nears the ends of the fourth day we’re at 74 backers. Will we get to 75 by 9 a.m. ?
Pablo the Gorilla is now racing to 100 backers and aiming for 200% backing. Reasonable goals?
If you’re reading this and you haven’t already, join Team Pablo!
Pablo the Gorilla is about an albino, cyborg gorilla that delivers pizza and just wants to live life. However, the government that created him wants their AWOL pet project back. We also discover a mysterious fiend tracking Pablo as well.
If you’ve been following the blog, you’ve no doubt seen all the work behind Pablo. Pablo is coming to life in print, but it’s up to fans to prove to the comics industry that they want to see new ideas from fresh faces. That means successful projects need to have big numbers and creators need followers.
Pledges start at $1, rewards start at $5 with physical rewards at the $12 level. The project even has a variant cover being done by Eisner Award winner Dustin Nguyen of Lil Gotham and Descender! After pledging, leave comments and share! Follow me on Instagram and Twitter!
This is an indie comic inspired by the spirit of books like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Usagi Yojimbo, Tank Girl, Hellboy and the Crow. Mash that up with 90s comics like X-Force or Cyber Force and throw in Mighty Joe Young and Planet of the Apes. Sound up your alley? Join Pablo the Gorilla’s Kickstarter now!
I’m gonna leave this here. Pablo the gorilla launches 7/10. Comic-con, we’re coming for you.
Here’s a preview of Pablo as a thank you for boosting Siren’s Song to Kindle’s top 10 for science fiction and fantasy illustration. Click here to find out what I’m talking and purchase the book if you’re new to the blog. Thank you to all those buying our ebook. Remember, it’s only $4.99; so, if Amazon just offered you a $5 credit…I think this is the right choice. 😉
In 2017, Andy Nordvall & I met as part of SDCC Comic Creator Connection. We decided to tackle Jake Parker’s Inktober that year. Yesterday our book was ranked 74 on Kindle in our genre. I thought the top 100 was cool. Today… it’s #6! We’re in the top 10! We beat out a book about the Legend of Zelda! Would it be possible to make #1?! It won’t happen without you! Click here to buy.
It took some work to format this book for print and for e-publication but Andy Nordvall and I got it done! We went with Ingram Spark, thanks to Kat Rocha from 01 Publishing for that. If you get a chance, check out their chilling Casefile: Arkham series! Special thanks to Jake Parker and his #Inktober movement for permitting us to use his imagery. Inktober was the basis and inspiration for this project and here’s to looking forward to this year’s challenge!
Our book is currently available on Amazon in e-book and paperback!
Just testing inking on yesterday’s doodle.
Everyone loves some Wonder Woman, right? By the way, I still think Linda Carter could rock the Wonder Woman costume.
