Heyo, check this out folks!
The Vol. 2 Kickstarter just hit $20K! This unlocks the first stretch goal! The book will now include 20 additional comics, bring it up through #440!
There’s still 28 days left in the campaign! I really want to have the cover text glow in the dark on this one, too.
BOOKS ARE A GO! WOOOOOOOOO!
The day 1 stats: 103% Funded at $15,502 pledged by 328 backers!
We actually hit our funding goal in 22 hours and 54 minutes, beating Vol. 1 time by an hour and 4 minutes, even though the goal for Vol. 2 was higher. It’s nuts, really. I am beyond thrilled to see the response to this! Thanks yous are in order for everyone that his pledged and shared the campaign! Thank yousss!
We’ve also done two groups of the Departmental Mystery Boxes that have already been devoured. Yes, we are going to add more, but we need to do some math to see just how many we can make. So, stay tuned for that.
If you haven’t reserved your copy of the book yet, have no fear! The campaign is running until 3/24 at 12am EST. You can reserve your copy of Vol. 2 here! And remember: Kickstarter is pledge based. You are not charged anything until the campaign ends. If you want to do something to support the campaign, but can’t pledge or think books are dumb, then please share the project with your friends, co-workers, and other groups of likeminded individuals.
And now it’s time for stretch goals. Here’s what we’re hoping to unlock over the remaining 29 days of the campaign:
Okay, so sure the 100K goal is lofty, of course, but don’t you want to try for that sweet, sweet exposure?
We raised just over $40k for Vol. 1 and I’m hoping that we can break the $50k mark for Vol. 2!
We’re getting close to end! With only 3 hours to go, there are still some doodle books left for the taking!
If you’re one of those midnight hour, last minute, or procrastinating types (like me), then fear not! Your moment has arrived.
This whole process has been phenomenal. There are over 1,000 backers supporting this project. I can’t wait to share the books with everyone!
Thank you all so much!
It’s the final day, and we just crossed the $35K mark, which means that more Doodled Books are available at the $30 and $50 reward tiers!
Backers, if you missed out on the doodled books earlier, this is your chance to snag one! There won’t be any more available after this.
If you haven’t backed yet, there’s still a few hours left!
Thanks so much to everyone for backing and supporting the campaign! With 14 hours and one stretch goal left, we’re in the final push now!
Time is winding down. There’s only a few hours to go on the campaign, and it is currently over 250% funded! We’ve hit a number of stretch goals, in case you missed it, and now the books will be hardcover, individually numbered, and feature the first 220 comics!
I’ve also been going through all of the comics writing commentary and digging out the original sketches of characters and the earliest comics, and that will only be available in the book.
Thanks to everyone who has supported the campaign, both by pledging and by sharing it. The Kickstarter has been so successful and we get to actually make a book all because of you. Thank you!
