I’m happy to announce Paper Rocket’s next book: Star Fruit by Gretta Johnson! I just launched a Kickstarter, and I’ll debut the book at SPX.
Star Fruit is Gretta Johnson’s first comic book. She beautifully rendered her comic using watercolor, ink, and dip pen. It’s a surreal and sexy story about a nude woman (and her cat) who encounters a witch and a magical fruit.
Gretta originally printed just 50 copies of Star Fruit. Keeping it in print was proving a challenge for her, so I offered to re-publish it. It will be released as an oversized (8.5″x11″) full-color comic.
You can back this project for JUST $15, and you’ll receive a copy of Star Fruit delivered to you. I’m not asking for a hand-out–$15 is just slightly more than the retail cost plus shipping. I use Kickstarter as a distribution method, and I’ve always set modest goals. I’m raising just $400, but it won’t be a walk in the park. Gretta Johnson is a new name in comics, so need your help getting the word out. Please back this project, but more importantly, please spread the word!
