Hello, friends!


First of all, thank you for your support for Hey Kitty  over the last year. From comments to coffee cards, from tweets to phone calls, every bit has meant a lot to us and has helped us keep bringing this project into reality.


As many of you know, Mayn created “Hey Fox” in 2004 and has been posting since then. Soon after, an adorable, naive, flirty, independent, snarky anthroid (anthropomorphic android) joined the cast of Fox’s friends: Kitty.


Kitty’s been my favorite HF character since I started reading it in 2012 -- and not just because my nickname for my little sister (my superhero) is Kitty.


So when Mayn approached me in mid-2014 with an idea for a story arc for her to set out on her own for a bit to discover more of her world and herself, there was no question: this was DEFINITELY going to happen.


After many months of prep (including storyboard/script/outline for the story of Book 1: Anthroids Rise), Hey Kitty launched on April 1, 2015.


So far, the origin story of Kitty as a superhero is still beginning, unfolding at about a page a week. We have not yet arrived at the meat of the story… Near the end of 2015, we took another big step towards making that happen: we hired Shen Travis to be HK’s artist. (She has a Masters degree in traditional animation from the Academy of Arts University; check out more of her art here: http://www.shentravis.com/ )


It’s so exciting to see how Shen brings Kitty’s story to life, and we really want to give more of the story to you all sooner, so we are asking for your help to pay Shen for another month of two pages per week rather than the usual one page per week.


Here’s that price breakdown:

$675   Comic!! ($75/page, 9 pages)

$125   Misc. expenses (website, photoshop, etc.)

$100   GoFundMe rewards and fees

$900   TOTAL: 1 month with extra pages


Thank you again for your continuing support! We look forward to sharing more of Hey Kitty: Anthroids Rise with all of you.

Hello, awesome folks!

As many of you know, on March 22, we launched #GoFundShen to help fund a month of twice as many pages per week of Hey Kitty.

We needed $900 to make that happen.

Within 8 days, 17 of you got us to $1000!

Thank you so much for helping us share more of our story faster! We had our month of 2 pages/week in May, and as a bonus, Shen and Mayn also created a 6-page summary of Chapter 1: http://heykittycomic.com/?comic=chapter-1-summary-16

And now, we are hoping to bring you an extra page in July, which already has 5 pages (hurray, Fridays! #TGIK)

Here's the new cost breakdown:

$1000 2x pages in May (THANK YOU!)

$ 450 Comic!! ($75/page, 6 pages)

$ 75 GoFundMe rewards and fees

$ 225 Misc. expenses*

$1750 TOTAL: 1 month with an extra page

* (such as months not covered by #GoFundShen: April, June, etc.)

We are grateful for every donation: money, social media shares and replies, reading the comic, comments on the site...

Thank you!
