Crowdfunding finished
After two years of the pandemic, we have a massive problem: a lack of raw materials and rising energy prices have made paper very expensive. Production prices have currently risen by up to 60% compared to the previous year. At the same time, the availability of paper is severely limited, and freight costs have also steadily increased. In order to be able to continue making comics in this situation and to set up this year's Fall program, we ask for your support!

What is this project all about?

Reprodukt is an independent publisher that has been publishing comics by authors mainly from Germany, France, Europe, the USA and Japan for 30 years. For more than ten years we have also been publishing a colorful children's comic program for young and old readers.

With paper prices rising, it's becoming increasingly difficult for us to publish comics and run this year's fall program as usual.

Therefore we are now asking for your support!

What is the project goal and who is the project for?

We want to use crowdfunding to continue publishing our authors, employ our translators and letterers, and be able to realize our Fall 2022 program.

And of course offer our readers and all interested parties many great new comics!

What we want to do with your support:

30,000 Euro: We are publishing our Fall program of 30 titles in the usual high quality. Carefully translated and edited comics appear, projects by young authors are accompanied by experienced editors, and we pay attention to high production and printing standards without the risk of having to compensate for the increased production costs with excessive sales prices.

45,000 Euro: If we reach 45,000 Euro, we can buy the planned new editions of much-requested comics such as „Die 2.333 Dimension" and "Otto" by Marc-Antoine Mathieu, "Blast" 3 + 4 by Manu Larcenet or reprint "Hitler" by Shigeru Mizuki.

60,000 Euro: If we reach the sum of 60,000 Euro, we will produce new slipcases for the “Donjon”, “Ralph Azham” or “Blast” series.

70,000 Euro: Wow! If we achieve this ambitious goal, nothing stands in the way of a new edition of the works by Marc-Antoine Mathieu around Julius Corentin Acquefacques such as "Der Ursprung" and the publication of his long-awaited novelty "Der Hypertraum"!

Why would you support this project?

Only with your support is it possible to publish our Fall program 2022.

In the short term we need financial help to absorb increased freight costs and increased paper prices and to be able to continue our publishing work in the future.

How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded? 

We are using the sum to finance our autumn program of around 30 comics and we want to use it to compensate for the rapid increase in paper prices.
