More About Our Sponsor

GORILLA MY DREAMS: GORILLA TAILS is a 22-page superhero noir comic featuring Knockaround-Guy, a talking gorilla. Artist Ahmed Raafat and writer Big Tim Stiles tell five short stories that take place on the gritty streets of Struggle-Town.

Gasp with excitement watching cops have a shootout with themed henchmen! Recoil with fear as Knockaround-Guy teams up with Cthulhu Williams to take down a female mutant Nazi turtle! Snort-laugh as MutherDucker gets drunk in the North Poles Strip Club. And so much more.

GORILLA MY DREAMS is best described as “Batman: The Animated Series mashed with Ninja Turtles if Saturday morning cartoons were on TV after 10pm.” If you like gritty comics like Daredevil and Hellboy, then I think you’ll dig this comic. GORILLA MY DREAMS: GORILLA TAILS is live on Kickstarter right now!”
