The Rock of the greyhounds
This project has been created with a main objective: to sensitize people on the abuse that greyhounds are suffering in Spain.
The Rock of the greyhounds is a short comic with a double reading: it tells us the story of a young couple which rescue an abandoned puppy greyhound that is about to die. Since that moment their life changes completely and they will live a great adventure with their new friend. On the other hand, it is also the story of the thousands of greyhounds that are abandoned or murdered after the hunting season: every year around 60.000 of greyhounds used for hunting are murdered in Spain. We want to make people aware of this situation that has to be stopped.
Regarding the narrative structure of the comic book, it is a classic three part story, in order to narrate a cruel reality with an innocent and kind drawing style.
We would like to say that this project has the support of GALGOLEKU: an organization that does a fantastic labour, dedicated for several years to the rescue of abandoned greyhounds. We will give part of the money collected with the crowdfunding campaign to this ORG for supporting its great job.
Finally, the date on which this comic will be published is September 2017. If the financial support exceeds the initial amount of expected money, we will be able to print more copies, make a bigger donation for Galgoleku and publish an English version of the comic. Obviously, all these points are according to how big the extra funding is.
Thank you! The contribution period is over.

I love the sequential art and the cartoons since I can remember (even before I have the ability of remembering). To achieve a mix between a good drawing style and a philosophical story is what I always pursue in my job.
