O Sarilho is a comic in which an alien gets shot in the face four times and for some reason that starts a war!
Since the campaign's goal has been reached, I suggest looking below for the stretch goals!
A satellite crashed in Lusitania, in enemy territory. A small team is sent on a mission to recover it... But when they arrive, they soon discover that the satellite was not the only thing that crashed in Arouca after all. And that other thing – whatever it is – is alive.
The third volume of O Sarilho takes a two-year leap from the events of the second volume, now follows the point of view of Lusitânia, where the satellite crashed. After a frustrated fight against the invaders of the Meditan empire, tensions escalate into open conflict and the Lusitanians must adapt to survive. It is in this climate that Ângela, a medical student working at the Academia's morgue, discovers a corpse that thinks... Inhuman thoughts.
Sarilho is a webcomic and, as such, can be read for free on the internet, at https://sarilho.net/en/ .
This campaign aims to crowdfund the third volume of the saga, which includes its fifth and sixth chapters: The Foreigner and Revelations. These chapters gives the perspective of the other side of the conflict, and follow the awakening of the Foreigner - the creature that crashed two years ago in Arouca - and the repercussions of such a "miracle" among the Lusitanian people. These chapters have been and will be published from June 2020 to October 2022, at approximately two pages per week. In other words: the third volume has unpublished material!
And for those who still don't know the story, the previous volumes will also be included in the rewards :)
Although d'O Sarilho was designed primarily for the digital medium, the value of having things in physical format cannot be overlooked: hence the important leap to print! As publishing things on my own is still a laborious and expensive process, this campaign is exclusively for raising funds to print as many copies as possible. After all, you have to spread the story to all corners of the country to reach all you comicbook lovers out there!
If this campaign manages to acquire more than 1400€, all backers who wish to will receive an additional charm:
Beyond 2000€, all backers who wish to will receive a booklet with information about the world of O Sarilho:
And if for some reason you wish to drive me insane, and if the campaign makes it past 2200€, there will be an even more extra reward... A booklet containing the finest selection of all the O Sarilho memes I've drawn over the years. I apologise in advance:
If this campaign makes it to €3000, all backers will receive a digital artbook containing O Sarilho art, concept sketches, ideas and some of my musings... And should you want a physical copy of said artbook, you can just raise your pledge by €10.
What about the shipping?
Shipping is included in the pledge amount, so make sure you select the correct option (there's options for shipping to Portugal and to the rest of the world).
What if I also want copies of a different volume?
You can either raise the pledge on your volume III or pledge twice! There's an option for that :)
