Did you know that there is a bird (called a hoopoe) in our real world that can shit on your head and loudly call "poo poo poo" while at  it if they feel threatened? And that there are vampire fanged deer that occasionaly eat meat? Clouded leopards that can hunt upside down hanging on only their hind legs like monkeys and that there have been ancient elephants with 2 half trunks and 4 tusks? Neither did we until we did our research for this comic!! :D

My heart and soul currently go out to this project called "Fawz, ghosts of the mangrove". About a cute little foxcub called Fawz, living in the mangrove forests in India... that does not stay all that cute at all.. 
There will be shamanistic magic, humor, heavy traumas, sexy human tribe girls, lost native American indians, wolves, scary stuff, mega mammals you've never heard of but did exist, cuteness and epic battles! 

Me and my best friend (who is a professional writer) would want nothing else but to finish this project in which we push beyond our creative limits and create the best comic we can. (and share this with you each step of the
 way) Yet it is hard to simply not eat or pay rent for a whole year while working on it. We already have a publisher who wants to distribute the comic once it is finished. But they cannot afford to pay us a year salary to create it. This is where you come in. For every 15 dollar I can afford to spend one hour on this project instead of something else that does pay the bills. And I would love nothing more than work on this crazy, badass story. Once the graphic novel is finished, a part of the profits will go to a charity to help protect the jungles and wild life of our precious blue planet. So the epicness that exists for real in this comic will keep existing in real life. ^^
