Korean Foodie Comic on Kickstarter

Daniel Gray hopes hopes to raise $1,500 on Kickstarter to digitally publish his Korean Food-themed comic, Say Kimchi! The final 120-page book will feature 30 different Korean dishes drawn in color. We’ve embedded a video about the project above–what do you think?

Here’s more about the project: “There is more to Korean food than just kimchi and that is what this comic will try to show through fun and informative storytelling in a comic format…The story will be told by Jia, a young Korean foodie, who will try the various foods while explaining the food in a way that is relatable for those unfamiliar and familiar with Korean food. She’ll offer fun insight into the food and give important tips for eating it such as how to properly cut food with scissors, the drinking culture, and more.”

Welcome to our Kickstarter Publishing Project of the Week, a feature exploring how authors and publishers are using the fundraising site to raise money for book projects. If you want to start your own project, check out How To Use Kickstarter to Fund Your Publishing Project.
