  1. OMG, I love this blog, really hits the nail on the head of my interests. I have my own blog but honestly yours hits so many topics I wish I had the time to address, considering I love TV and comic books among many other things that I never have the time to get into. Consider me a new follower, if you ever want to check mine out it’s:

  2. Hey Guys

    My name is Hameed and I’m a comic writer. I’m also a fan of Pastami Nation and would like to share something new that could be a nice fit for your blog (particularly in the illustration section). The project I would like to share is Champion Of Dema; it is a stand-alone Afrocentric graphic novel about a young man named Kade Mabrin who is forced to be a hero but really doesn’t want the responsibility.

    I have attached images to this email and my kickstarter page ( http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1088749339/244574953?token=378676fa ) has a video and bullet points on why Champion of Dema is unique. I think Champion of Dema will be a great story for Pastrami Nation for the following reasons

    1. It’s a creator owned graphic novel – writing is my passion and my ultimate dream is to be able to write stories that eventually make it onto the big animation screen. If you help to support me then you will essentially be helping to make me an entrepreneur as I’m completely independent with no ties to any companies or the like.

    2. It’s not your run of the mill fantasy story, it’s unique in the fact that it explores various African cultures in a fantasy fictional setting for the western world to enjoy; something that I don’t think has been done before. It also has a universal story and message that I believe everyone can relate to no matter where you’re from or who you are.

    3. Well developed and designed characters – I’ve poured my heart and soul into this project, both me and the artist took extra time to design each aspect of the characters and the city of Dema from the ground up. You can expect well rounded characters and a detailed city in which to let your imagination loose.

    If you’re interested then please let me know how I can make the writing process easy for your team. I’m happy to send more hi res photos. The project launches on Friday the 25th at 9am GMT London time.

    Thanks for taking the time to hear me out

    Hameed Catel
