Hi Folks! It’s Summerstock time!
I’m at my summer theatre home from now until October which, once again, means a few things:
- I will not be maintaining a strict three-a-week update schedule. It’ll be more like one-a-week, but sometimes more, sometimes less. It’ll be especially slow this month while we’re busy loading in for the season. I’ll be making more comics once the first show opens and my schedule stabilizes.
- New comics will continue appearing monthly in Stage Directions magazine. No interrupted service there.
- The shop is closed until October. I don’t have any of my merchandise with me and will not be able to ship anything, including prints. I am also not taking commissions for the duration (and probably won’t be taking any while I’m fulfilling the volume 2 kickstarter rewards through the end of the year, if I’m being honest).
- I won’t be as active on the usual internet places, so if you need to get in touch, use the contact form instead of sending a message on facebook/tumblr/wherever.
That’s it folks! If you’re off to your summer home, too, I wish you well! Have fun and make good art!
Woo! The campaign is over and we are funded!
280% Funded, actually.
That makes: 904 Backers. $42100 Pledged. 951 Books.
Thank you, everyone. You made this happen. Thanks you for backing and for sharing and for reading the comics.
I, uh, guess I’ve got to go make this book thing now, huh?
I will be posting process updates on Kickstarter occasionally, but the best places to go for the latest information will be Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr. If you want to see pictures of my cats, follow along on Instagram. And if you want to be part of some of the decision making process, you can become a patron of Q2Q Comics on Patreon. I have been and will continue to post polls and ask for suggestions from my braintrust over there.
Again, thanks to all of you beautiful backers. Especially you. I’m so excited! I can’t wait for you to see this book!
Overnight, we broke $40K! Ya’ll have unlocked the Cryptid Sticker Pack stretch goal!
If you have selected a reward tier that includes a book (basically all of them $15+) then in addition to the stated rewards you will be getting a pack of 6 vinyl, die-cut cryptid stickers that will feature La Ropasucia, Blorp and Prop Cat. I’m still working on the designs, but they should all be roughly 3-4″ across. If you’re a patron of Q2Q Comics on Patreon, you’ll get some say in what the designs are, even!
If you are thinking “dang I really want those stickers, but I didn’t selected a reward tier that entitles me to one of those sexy books! What can I do?” fear not, friendo! You can still change your reward tier to one that includes a book!
Or perhaps you were thinking “Dear sir, If I were to have selected a reward tier with two of your fine books, am I then to be entitled to DOUBLE sticker packs?” Yes! If you selected any of the two book tiers you will get two packs of stickers. HOWEVER if you choose to add copies of Vol. 1 or Vol. 2 to your order through BackerKit, you will not get any more stickers. We are only counting books that come with your selected reward tiers so that only the folks who backed on Kickstarter get the bonus!
Oh jeez, and since I started typing this we have actually surpassed the total funding for Vol. 1! Woo! Go team! We’ll hold off on the confetti cannon.
Also: I have been asked to put in writing that I promise the Stage Management mystery boxes will not just be an enormous glitter bomb with a dust pan.
There’s only 15 hours left to back the Q2Q Comics Volume 2 Kickstarter! Click here to reserve your copy!
We’re already 260% funded and have hit the first two stretch goals and we are very, very close to clearing the third stretch goal which would net everyone who’s getting a book a pack of Cryptid Stickers! Want a La Ropasucia to mischief your road case or laptop? Bam. How about a Blorp to protect your paint cabinet? Boom. Maybe a prop cat too? I don’t know, maybe so!
If you want to make sure you get a copy of the Kickstarter edition of Volume 2, you’ve gotta back the campaign before it ends.
If you read the other updates and thought “Dang, I really should back that. I’ll do that later…” well, now is about as late as it gets. There’s not any later after this.
We’ve even got a few mystery boxes still available in the last group, in case you missed it the first go round and really wanted it. Go for it!
All right, all you last minute folks, the floor is yours.
The final day of the Volume 2 Kickstarter has arrived! It’s your last chance for mystery boxes (yes there are a few open spots), doodled books, and the collectible numbered Kickstarter Edition of the book.
If you’ve looked at this and said “Yeah, I should back that later…” now IS later. There is no more “later” after this. If you don’t back it now, you’ve missed your chance. And I don’t want anyone to feel like they’ve missed out.
