The Kickstarter for Aim For The Heart: Queer Fanworks Inspired by Alexandre Dumas’s “The Three Musketeers” Is Now Live!

You’ve heard “All For One!”; now get ready for “One For All!” Duck Prints Press is thrilled to bring a whole new meaning to the Musketeers’ famous slogan in one inclusive book with a little bit of something for everyone: Aim For The Heart: Queer Fanworks Inspired by Alexandre Dumas’s “The Three Musketeers.” For this collection, we recruited 20 authors and 16 artists who love Athos, Porthos, Aramis, d’Artagnan, Milady, Madame Bonacieux, and the whole gang from Dumas’s wonderful historical melodrama. These creators’ mission was simple: take this long-adored story and make it queer! The result is an amazing collection of works exploring the nuances of these characters, delving into issues of identity, gender, and sexuality—telling and retelling a story we all know and love.

For this campaign, we’re offering three backer levels—e-book, print book, and print book + bookmark + enamel key chain + die-cut sticker + magnet. We’re also offering scads of add-ons, including lots of campaign merch from our past campaigns.

And, as a bonus, people who back the campaign AND back our Patreon at the $10/month or $25/month level will get a campaign-exclusive magnet!

Interested in the merchandise? Don’t wait to back! We’re offering an early-bird special on our highest backer level—book + merch backers who support the campaign now through Sunday, June 18th, will save $10!

This campaign is running NOW through JULY 15, 2023! Check it out NOW!
