On Wednesday, not only did KC Green finally update his classic "famous dog" comic -- in which a dog in a fedora sips coffee while the world around him burns -- he also announced a 30-day Kickstarter campaign to produce an official plush version of his creation.

In the new comic, the dog -- whose name is "Question Hound," Green informed potential Kickstarter investors -- everything is decidedly not fine, as one can gather from the URL. Things are, however, better for Green, as a mere two days into his campaign he has already $9,106 of the $35,000 required to fund it.

As he noted, "I, for one, hope there'll be a day when we no longer have to look for the dog on fire to support our feelings, but until that day comes, maybe a nice big plush of the boy will help."

Watch the official Kickstarter video for the project below.
