‘Anubis: Dog of Death’ is an action comedy comic book series about the Egyptian god Anubis, doomed to live as a tiny purse dog in LA.
We just barely reached the funding goal for Anubis: Dog of Death #2 before the campaign ended yesterday. But we made it!
John Barry Ballaran is working on the art for Issue #2. While he’s working on that, I’m going to post monthly updates for the backers on Kickstarter. Not sure yet if these will be publicly available or not. If they include some content that the backers have paid for, I can obviously not post that to everyone. We’ll see what I do there.
There’s now only 24 hours left of the Anubis: Dog of Death #2 Kickstarter campaign, and we are still missing $553 to reach our $4,806 goal. Not impossible, but still a challenge.

We are halfway through the project runtime of our Kickstarter campaign today, and have reached 59% of our funding goal!
But we have also run out of our premium reward tier, the $200 Guest Star reward which allowed three backers to be featured as speaking characters in the comic.
Here’s a sketch of page five of issue #2, with all available cameo characters on that page marked with red.
Here’s what the cameos look like when completed.
The cover for the second issue of Anubis: Dog of Death shows Anubis running through a city model, used as a set for a movie. But this image is actually an homage to a set used in the Japanese kaiju film Mothra from 1961.
The Kickstarter for Anubis: Dog of Death #2 is in full swing, so I wanted to show off some cool details from what we have of Issue #2 so far. We might as well start off at the very start, with panel one of page one.
We’re now three days into the Kickstarter for Issue #2 of Anubis: Dog of Death. And we’ve reached 25% of our funding goal!
