As you might already be aware, our Kickstarter hit its goal in the wee early hours of… good lord… this morning. It’s been a long day.
That said, we’re far from finished. The campaign still carries on until Friday, November 1 – leaving us ample time to welcome new backers, as well as to add new incentives and rewards. We reached our goal in less than six days – yet there are still twenty-six more days to come. Wish us well, spread the word, and let’s see if we can break a record or two.
We’re not failing at Kickstarter. In less than three days – less than 60 hours, in fact – we’ve received $6,300 in pledges. That’s a whopping 84% of our $7,500 goal. Mind-boggling. Humbling. But, it’s not the sort of thing that inspires resting on one’s laurels. I’ve heard plenty of people say, “You have it in the bag!” – what with nearly 30 days remaining in our campaign. Will we hit our goal? It’s highly likely. Nevertheless, it instills the kind of fear in me that politician gets on election night. You know, the guy everyone is certain will win – and therefore no one bothers to vote.
Funny thing – this is absolutely not what I sat down to write. I actually cut a bit out. But, I’m leaving the rest. Cuz it’s honest. And we can’t really get enough of that. I was going to just say, “Hey! We’re Kickstarting this book! Check it out! Tell your friends! Share the link!”
And I just did.
So, please…. If you’re thinking about voting for us, think of that really awesome candidate on election night. And don’t let the other guy win.
Thanks for reading.
If you missed out on either previous book for any reason, fear not. We’re making copies of both available as well.
We’re going to have some rather wonderful rewards lined up, too – plus, we might have something special to offer folks who back on Day One. I’ll update you on that if it comes to fruition.
Continue to watch this space. I’ll post a link when the campaign goes live.
After a wee bit of radio silence, there is now much afoot!
You’ll find me (Brian) at Rose City Comic Con in Portland on Sept. 21 & 22. I’ll be at Table N-04 with copies of Ultrasylvania, Vol. 1 & Vol. 2, plus some other goodies. I’ll also be exhibiting with some of the Ultrasylvania artists at the Alternative Press Expo (APE) on Oct. 12 & 13 in San Francisco. More on that as the time draws near.
Ultrasylvania, Vol. 2: Emperor Frankenstein is available for pre-order on Amazon.
After a summer-long hiatus, Ultrasylvania.com resumes thrice weekly transmissions of new comics pages, beginning Monday, Sept. 16. That’s this Monday, folks.
Last but not least…. Mark your calendars. We’ll be launching a Kickstarter campaign to fund the printing of Ultrasylvania, Vol. 3 on Monday, Sept. 30.
Yeah. That’s plenty a-goin’ on.
San Diego, I’m coming for you! No booth or table for me, BUT Ultrasylvania will be well-represented – with Volumes One and Two available exclusively at Tr!ckst3r. They’ll have a very limited supply of free buttons and bookmarks, too.
As I say, I won’t be tethered to any part of the con, but odds are good you’ll find me at Tr!ckst3r most nights – and some days. I’m also participating in the ComiXology/The Hero Initiative “The Blank Page Project” Charity Event at the Hilton Bayfront on Thursday from 5-7pm. Even if you don’t care to see me, you can still go to this – it’s free (so’s the food!) – and see upwards of 100 artists and writers fill an 8′ by 12′ comic page for charity. You don’t see that everyday.
