Life as a disabled comic book creator

So I Need Your Help

For those of you who don’t know me, I’m Larime Taylor, and I make a comic book with my mouth. 

I was born with Arthrogryposis, a congenital defect that leaves me with little use of my arms and legs. Writing and art are all I have as far as job skills, so making comic books is about my only marketable option. I’ve been living on Social Security for 14 years, which is way below the poverty line, and this is my ticket out.

My book, A VOICE IN THE DARK, started as a Kickstarter to help me do a self-published pilot of sorts and get a publisher, and it worked. I got picked up by Top Cow, a part of Image Comics. Despite nearly universal rave reviews, however, sales are languishing. That’s largely because I’m a new creator, I’ve never worked at Marvel or DC, and few people know who I am.

It’s also in part because my book is black and white, and features a predominantly female cast of characters, many of color, and with realistic body types instead of hyper-sexualized fap material.

Here’s where I need your help.

You can read #1 and #2 online right now at Comixology or the Image digital store. Issue #3 comes out on the 15th, and #4 is still open for pre-order. You can call your comic shop right now and tell them to order a copy of #4 with the item number DEC130603. This is the most important part - getting pre-orders of #4 up. 

If you’re already a fan of the book, please consider sharing it with a friend.

If you haven’t checked it out yet, please consider giving it a chance.

I’m working very hard to change my life, and I’m putting out a pretty good book. I just need help spreading the word.

If nothing else, please re-blog this.

Thank you SO very much.

Larime
