Hi there! We're Ananth Hirsh and Yuko Ota, the authors of BARBAROUS! You may know our work from Lucky Penny, Our Cats Are More Famous Than Us, Wander: A Johnny Wander Travelogue Collection, CUTTINGS, Offhand, or any of the many Kickstarters, freelance or published work we've done in our 10+ years in comics. You can read many of our works for free at johnnywander.com.
The Reuben award-winning series returns! BARBAROUS returns with a Kickstarter for the Chapter 5 book! You can also pick up the matching editions of Chapters 1-4, as well as a handsome Season 1 slipcase to display them all! And there are other rewards as well!
Persephone Chiaki Mori is a wizard school dropout! In another life, she was top of her class at the Academy, a prestigious university responsible for training young minds in the practice of magic. That was then. Now, she's working the only job she can get-- as an assistant to Leeds, the monstrous superintendent of an apartment building.
A thief breaks into the building and casts a spell that sends Percy and Leeds to a dangerously unstable plane of existence. That's a problem when you have baggage, because it manifests in strange and unpredictable ways. Now Percy has to face aspects of herself she'd been trying to ignore-- and that's while searching for Leeds and a way to bring them both home with their selves intact.
BARBAROUS has magic, drama, pasts shrouded in mystery, and more drama! Can Percy and Leeds come to understand one another? Probably, if they can get over themselves first...
Barbarous is serialized online – you can read it all here. Season 2 has already begun! This campaign is to raise funds for a Chapter 5 Leeds-sized Edition, to complement the previously released Chapter 1-4 Leeds-sized Editions (and which you can also pick up as a part of this campaign)! These are printed at a larger trim of 9 x 11.5", as a nod towards the style of french albums. The book will be 56 pages long. There is also a slipcase available, to display all of Season 1 in one place!
