My name is Jerome Cabanatan and welcome to the Crowdfundr of "Hii-Yaa!: The Handbook", an interactive comic promoting martial and sequential art! In addition to being an Amazon best-selling cartoonist, I am also a taekwondo instructor/coach with over 25 years experience. I love to use comics and art to promote the myriad of benefits of martial arts to people of all ages. My goal is to foster a love of READING and CREATING more comics with the mentality and discipline of a martial artist. This project will collect, upgrade and expand on the pages found in my kid-approved comic-making workbooks : "Hii-Yaa!! Let's Make a Comic" .
Your support for this campaign goes a long way! Funds raised by this campaign will go into pre-orders for the initial print run, including an EXCLUSIVE dust jacket for both the "Hii-Yaa Handbook" and the original "Tree Kids of Troop 44" graphic novels and more. In addition to the printing costs, using the Crowdfundr platform helps amplify the signal in a way that my own voice can't!
*Physical books are planned to ship out July 2023. Digital rewards will be fulfilled June 2023.
