Want to have yourself immortalized in the first comic book to ever be set in Strathcona County? Then head here and see how!
From the Indiegogo page:
Drea Boyd is a nice girl, living in a nice suburb — and feeling pretty much disconnected from everything.She finds solace in books and escapes into a fantasy world she creates. There, she’s Boy — a tough, smart cowgirl living in 1910 Alberta.
You can follow the stories in the first edition of “A Cowgirl Named Boy”, a creative collaboration between writers Trent Wilkie and Natasha Deen, and illustrator Dan Schneider.
Just to make it more interesting, this is the first time — in recorded history — that a comic book has been set in Strathcona County, a place that’s celebrating its 120th anniversary this year. We’ve even giving the founding father — Lord Strathcona — a cameo.
You’re supporting the work of independent Alberta artists — and we’re prepared to make it worth your while.
Your dollars will go to the costs of illustration and printing for this limited-edition project. There will only be 250 copies of “A Cowgirl Named Boy” printed, and we plan to release the comic on a high-grade parchment-style paper with a full-color cover.
