Crowdsourcing Mornings: Odie #2 Comic Book


This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

Odie is an aging corgi with a flare for the dramatic narrative. In issue #1, we saw him lost far from home. Armed with only his bravery and his cunning, he faced challenges familiar to anyone who has ever read through Homer’s Odyssey.  In issue #2, Odie has been reunited with the family that he loves, and is embarking on their annual lake-side vacation. Unfortunately for Odie, that also means Kujo, his newly adopted brother, will be coming along for the ride. Odie will have to cope with his jealousy over being forced to share the family with another dog and work together with some strange new friends in order to track down a legendary prey.

Essentially, Odie is a foil for re-imagining classic literature in a new and fun light! This first story of Issue #2 will deal with Odie’s relationship to Kujo while mirroring the tale of Herman Melville’s Moby Dick. As a bonus, there’s a short story highlighting Odie’s deteriorating mind while homaging Kafka’s Metamorphosis.  The comic is twenty-four full color pages by our talented artists, and features a thank-you page for all of the Kickstarter contributors in the back.  In addition to the standard cover, this comic is also available in a limited edition variant cover printed on blue paper, with a foundation of white ink used to create a contrast between glossy and matte elements. This cover will be exclusive to the Kickstarter campaign, so don’t miss your chance to snag one!

As of August 14th, this project has raised $2,500 of their $5,000 goal. This project has 21 days left to raise the $5,000 or it will not be funded.  For a pledge of $5, you will get a PDF copy.  For a pledge of $10, you will get a physical copy.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to:  https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1390200311/odie-2-with-extra-feature
