Time Dog is the perfect time traveler! He doesn’t make plans or do anything a dog wouldn’t do. Together he and Noelle embark on epic adventures across space and time…
Time Dog and Other Atomic Fairytales is a 48 page, oversize hardcover volume (8.5”x13”) full of sci-fi whimsy for all ages.
"I had a hard look at how best to format the horizontal strips, and I came to the conclusion that they would work best stacked 4 to a page, so that's why we're going with an oversized volume that is 8.5" x 13". Otherwise the strips end up just being too small for easy legibility, Plus, a bigger book invokes a newspaper format in my mind."
"Apart from a Heavy Metal story, this material has only ever been self published as horizontal-format zines that I sold at conventions, and the material mostly wasn't colored yet."
Commission example & Remarque example
Enamel pin set
Time Dog and Other Atomic Fairytales is written & illustrated by Ringo Award winning artist Vincent Kings, who won the 2022 New Talent category for his first graphic novel, This Is Where We Fall. He is also a residency recipient of the Maison des Auteurs comic arts residency in Angoulême, France, where he began Time Dog. His work has also appeared in Heavy Metal Magazine and The Last Comic Book on the Left anthologies. Outside of comics, he created cinematics for Batman: The Telltale Series, Minecraft:Story Mode and the upcoming Star Trek: Resurgence.
Vince is redoing all lettering for the strips by hand for this book and, as of the campaign's launch, has roughly half the pages complete. He's confident he will have the whole book done by the end of the campaign.
Printing and shipping should take around three months, so delivery of rewards is expected to be done around March 2023.
The pandemic has shown that certain conditions are simply out of anybody’s hands. However, Zoop will always be here to communicate with backers should any delays occur, if there’s confusion about delivery, or if any other concerns pop up.
The holidays are upon us, and even though the book will not ship until next year, I wanted to offer something to backers that would arrive in time for the holidays. So any pledge of $50 or more will receive this new holiday postcard, featuring the brand-new campaign-only illustration: "Time Dog Meets The X-Terminator from X-Mas Future".
Thank you all so much for your support, and if you don't know what to get your loved ones for Christmas, consider picking up another copy of the book! It won't be a late gift, it's just "time-displaced"...

Announcing Atomic Fairytale #1: SPACE CAT!
Excited to announce the first of the Atomic Fairytales is SPACE CAT: a dive into the little-known history of the first cat launched into space, a Parisian stray named Félicette. The story is nuts, and a real case of reality being stranger than fiction. If the story behind this photo doesn't pique your interest, I don't know what will. Back now and back early - this was initially conceived as a quick 6-pager, but I'm planning to add an extra 8 pages to let it breathe. You will fall in love with SPACE CAT.

And pick up some enamel pins too why don't you? Check out these babies is use:
Zoop does not store or keep your credit card info. Stripe simply holds the credit card info until the end of a successful campaign and then charges it. It is strictly for this one time use and won't charge it ever again.
We use Stripe for checkout because it is VERY secure. They exceed industry security standards and are trusted by thousands of companies, including Amazon, Lyft, Slack, Shopify, and Airbnb, who use Stripe's software tools to accept payments. Their interface is pre-made by them and we don't have the ability to augment it in any way. Once there, you have 15 minutes to complete the transaction by hitting the 'SAVE CARD' button. Stripe then holds the credit card info until the end of the campaign. You won’t actually be charged unless the campaign reaches the funding goal. The pre-order amount will show as 'pending' on your credit card statement until that date.
If the campaign doesn't fund, your pre-order will be canceled, and the pending charge will disappear. You'll get an email confirmation with a summary of rewards and charges both after the initial pledge and after the actual charging of the card (try looking in your spam folder if you don't happen to see it in your inbox).
You can either access the transaction through your account and click the cancel button, or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll cancel it for you and send back a confirmation email.
Cancellations of rewards or add-ons of $500 or more must be made before there are 72 hours left in the campaign. The reason for this is it can have a negative effect on the tally of the campaign. If it is a limited reward or add-on, there may not be sufficient time for someone else to purchase it, leaving the campaign possibly not funded. We ask for your courtesy of the people running the campaign when making these decisions.
You could e-mail us at email@example.com with that info during the campaign if you'd like to get it out of the way. Otherwise, we'll be reaching out to all supporters of rewards that require feedback shortly after the campaign is over.
Our campaigns are for a worldwide audience unless stated otherwise in the campaign. All international orders are sold with the terms DAP (Delivered At Place). You are responsible for any duties and taxes required for the shipment's entry into your country. Our carriers may require you to pay taxes and fees related to importation and customs brokerage of your shipment -- but if your item is really low in value, it may fall under the customs de minimis of most countries. For more information, please contact USPS
Since we have an a la carte rewards system, shipping rates will vary from supporter to supporter. We use a weight-based calculation system in your checkout cart, though, so, after you enter your country, you'll be able to see it calculated in real time with each item you add.
If you want to make changes, you should first cancel your original order and then start over with a new one. If you don't do that and simply process an additional order, the way our system is currently set up you may end up being overcharged for shipping -- which we could remedy for you, but it just takes that extra step of catching it and crediting you back the extra shipping, so please try the prior way first.
No - this is it! We're essentially your in-campaign pledge manager. If you are interested in supporting these creators, this is the time to do it!And it's the exact reason we allow you to purchase as many rewards as you want during the campaign!
Rewards are the priority items that the creators have chosen for the campaign. Add-Ons are meant to be secondary items that are 'unlocked' after you buy something from the Reward level. There are no restrictions on buying Rewards, but you can only buy Add-Ons if you've bought a Reward. Zoop sets this up under the direction of the creators. Some may choose to only have Rewards, some may choose an even balance of Rewards and Add-Ons, and others may choose to only have one or two Rewards with the rest of the items being Add-Ons.
