Dojo Kun Comics’ “Tōrō Tales” Now on Indiegogo

On Wednesday, independent comic book creator and Dojo Kun Comics founder Brian Menard* launched a crowdfunding campaign for Tōrō Tales, an 88-page anthology book featuring the work of multiple creative teams.

According to Menard, the work on the Tōrō Tales book itself is already completed, so other than printing, shipping and the bonus swag, there should be fewer barriers to production than many other crowdfunding campaigns.

Here’s the official breakdown of the book from the Tōrō Tales Indiegogo campaign page:

Dojo Kun Comics presents Tōrō Tales #01, an 88-Page anthology graphic novel featuring nine short-stories weaving tales of B.O.T. 42, Sakura, The Scarlet Archer, Nightmist, Lone Shark, Sparrow, I Am Become Death, H2O (Halia and Ondine) and Sovereign. The creative team includes 7 writers, 9 artists, 7 colorists and 6 letterers!

Dojo Kun Comics has been publishing comic books for six years now, with 12 ‘floppies’ published and a successfully funded and fulfilled IndieGoGo campaign for the Siamese Trade Paperback. You can back this project with confidence that you WILL get your book (and all the fun swag that comes with it)! With the exception of the cover (discussed below) and the swag, this is an already-completed book.

Backers can get a digital version of Tōrō Tales for $15, while physical copies start at $25. If you have more money to spend, you can also pick up the following:

  • Multiple copies of the book
  • A hardback edition
  • A sticker pack
  • A supplemental ashcan-sized book BOG!
  • A second printing of Dojo Kun Comics’ superheroine adventures Siamese

It is also worth noting that there is an additional shipping charge starting at $12 for those in the United States.
