PRESS RELEASE: Torsobear Volume 3 On Kickstarter This September

Torsobear Volume 3: Back to the Blocks – Live on Kickstarter this September!

Torsobear tackles murder, corrupt authorities and imprisonment through a storybook lens.

Detective Ruxby Bear has been a hero cop, held prisoner on corruption charges, and now he fights for rights as the imaginary city of Toyburg is torn apart by unrest.

The book is offered via a Kickstarter campaign, and first week pledges will get a special sketch from the creator on the inside front cover of the book, in addition to any other rewards for their pledge level.

The basic pledge packages for the book alone will be:

Digital price – $6.50

Hardcopy price – $20

Add Volume 1 &2 – $10 (half price)

Volume 3 FREE – Refer 5 friends who pledge.

“The toys want to tear it down, one bear fights to defend it, and for one cat playtime in the city is over.

Return to sweet Toyburg one more time, where the puzzle-piece streets thunder with voices raised against Mayor Huggington. In a police force of hired ex-villains, Ruxby Bear is one of the few real cops who pledge to protect and serve all toys.

Along with his old wooden friend friend Hazbrow, and wife Mytell, they must stand strong against the tyranny of powerful toys. Can they stop their fellow citizens from wrecking the districts, and the evil Copycat in his quest for chaos?

Fuzzy families, police and criminals all have their perspective on the rising chaos gripping Toyworld, and how they face the dangers will define them.

Ruxby gets real, because it’s time to clean up those blocks.”
