Michael O’Driscoll to Create ‘Bedbug Cartoon’ Book Thanks to Kickstarter Fundraiser

Michael O’Driscoll, the creator of the “Bedbug Cartoon” Tumblr page, has raised $6,984 for his compilation title, Bedbug’s Book of Wisdom.

The finished 40-page page will contain previously published online comics as well as never before seen cartoons. We’ve embedded a video about the project above. Here’s more from the Kickstarter page:

“Each book will be signed/numbered and will include a handmade thank you card featuring Bedbug plus a cute little Bedbug drawing inside the cover. Each sponsor will be included in the appreciation credits in the book. So as to not pick ‘favorites’ the credits will be alphabetical.”

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.
