Misunderstanding Comics on Kickstarter!

Pledge to Misunderstanding Comics on Kickstarter!

Scott McCloud’s Understanding Comics was a landmark book in the comics world for establishing the potential of visual arts to convey beauty, drama, and transcendent meaning.

But comic book readers didn’t want beauty – they wanted buff gladiators with laser guns the size of a filing cabinet, sex kittens with impossible figures drawn by unskilled artists, an army of hacks hoping to sell a million issues of pre-bagged, individually- numbered holofoil special editions to drooling fanboys before anyone noticed they were bankrupting their own medium. Join us as we turn a jaundiced eye toward all that is wrong with the “invisible art”.

You won’t understand comics until you misunderstand them!

Misunderstanding Comics is co-written and illustrated by Mike Rosen, the writer/illustrator behind the satirical adaptation of The Malleus Maleficarum: the Medieval Guide to Hunting Witches.

And if you prefer to get your info via PDF, here’s our convenient and portable press kit.

    Congratulatiions on reaching your funding goal, guys!

    but folks, there ARE still a few days left if you want to get in on the Kickstarter offers!

    for just 5 measly bucks, you too can have a .PDF of what is surely going to be a smirkful experience.

    for more, you can get some pretty sweet extras… including a cameo in the comic, having a lovely lambasting of some other comic on YouTube, t-shirts, honorable mentions in the final work, and more!
