“The Adventures of Dog Mendonça and Pizzaboy” is a trilogy of comic books written by Filipe Melo and illustrated by argentinean artists Juan Cavia and Santiago Villa.
These books tell the adventures and misadventures of an unlikely group of misfits: a werewolf with a bad temper, a pizza delivery guy, a six thousand year old demon living in the body of a child, and a Gargoyle’s head. Together they are forced to save the world more often than they would wish for, facing the most terrible threats.
We work together in this books since 2005 and, until now, we were able to publish two volumes of the saga. We were very fortunate to have forewords written by John Landis and George A. Romero for our first two books and to be published by Tinta-da-China in Portugal and by Dark Horse Comics in the USA.
The third and last book “The Fantastic Adventures of Dog Mendonça and Pizzaboy” (Volume III) is currently in production and we want to invite you to be a part of this project. Your participation, more than welcome, is essential.
It´s very difficult to gather the necessary investment for this venture – it depends on a full year of a daily and constant work from the team. The script (already completed) also took about a year to be written. Even though the books were a relative sales success and have won some major comic book awards, they weren’t able to cover their cost, otherwise you wouldn’t be reading these lines. To finish these adventures we need your help!
The amount achieved will be used for drawing and coloring 105 pages and make the dialogue balloons.
Every penny you give us will be transformed in blood, sweat and tears to bring you the best of the three adventures.
Our main goal is to partwith the old tradition of blockbusting trilogies: the third part is always a piece of s****.
If this happens, we can only promise one thing: it will be the last!
