Crowdfunding Spotlight | Chewler
Published on Tuesday, October 14, 2014 by
In the latest Crowdfunding Spotlight: Chewler, an 88-page original graphic novel from writer David M. Brown (Obscura, The Wisdom of Fools) and artist Shannon Gretzon (The Disgruntled Avenger, Completely Inaccurate).

What is it?

Chewler is a full-length graphic novel from the mind of Fifth Dimension Comics‘ David M. Brown, who describes the work as

… an over-the-top action/comedy which deals with a conspiracy to raise Hitler from the dead to retrieve occult information from him worth billions. The art is as unique as the story is. If pressed to describe it, I’d say it’s what a coloring book would look like if you were on acid. Chewler is 88 pages of madness.

Who is behind it?

The Chewler Kickstarter campaign is headed by Toledo, Ohio-based writer David M. Brown, who also serves as the editor-in-chief of small press outfit Fifth Dimension Comics. Brown’s work has previously appeared in the two-volume Obscura horror comics anthology and The Wisdom of Fools horror comics anthology, both published by Fifth Dimension Comics, with the latter’s publication funded through a successful Kickstarter campaign.

Providing the art for the book is Wisconsin-based illustrator Shannon Gretzon (deviantART, Twitter). Gretzon’s most notable work is The Disgruntled Avenger, a black & white indie book launched in 1998 that made its comiXology debut earlier this year. Other works by Gretzon include the 2010 comic strip collection Neanderthals in Space, the 2011 Captain 4 Eyes one-shot, and the 2011 original graphic novel Completely Inaccurate, all self-published by Gretzon under his Exspastic Comics imprint.

How much money does it need and when does the fundraising campaign period end?

As of this writing, the Chewler fundraising campaign has received pledges adding up to the amount of $300—12% of its $2,500 baseline goal—with 29 days left in its campaign period. The fundraising period ends on Wednesday, 12 November 2014, 11:17 AM PDT. Chewler will be delivered only if the minimum $2,500 goal is pledged before the end of the fundraising period.
