Zap!'s never before published full-color Volume #3 Kickstarter.
UPDATE: WE DID IT! FUNDED!
You guys rock! In case, you didn't see, we reached our goal. Now we're just aiming for stretch goals. Anyways, do yourself a favor and check out the updates here if you haven't already. The last one is pretty important for you to read.
A Kickstarter for Zap!?
Zap! is a full color sci-fi space opera comedy that has been on the internet for more than 9 years! Zap! is a story driven comic and therefore lends itself well to the printed comic book format. This is where you come in, my friends and Zaplings...
We have been self publishing our webcomic in book form for a few years now and we are ready to give you guys Zap! Volume #3 in all its awesome glory! Volume #3 will have the stunning conclusion to the Grivak Bounty Hunter arc as well as the beginning of the Rings of Luck Casino arc. The volume will also feature exclusive artwork and behind the scenes sketches. If you've never read Zap! before, now's a great time to start! Check it out here!
With your help and pledges, we will be able to print Zap Volume #3 at a sufficient number of copies as well as invest back into the comic you know and love. Some of the money will go to paying taxes and fees from this Kickstarter drive, as well as shipping and for the rewards. If we go over our pledge amount we'll figure out flex-rewards and update you.
The great thing about doing this on Kickstarter, is that if we don't reach our goal, you don't get charged! So the only way you are going to spend money is if you are getting your rewards! And speaking of rewards...
We're offering a lot of great rewards to help motivate you all on pledging. The rewards include PDFs of the printed volumes, Volume #3 itself, bundles of all three volumes, posters, art books, original comic pages, and even a chance at becoming an extra in the comic itself! Check out some pictures of some of the rewards below!
And if we go over our goal, we even have great stretch goals like an exclusive new Art Book featuring Zap and Reona as well as maybe even finishing up and making available the Excelsior origin story, "Hardluck".
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Luckily for all of you, this project does not have a large amount of risks. We've published books on our own twice now, the only difference here is on the amount being printed. Our biggest challenge will be how long it may take to supply everyone with their signed books, but even that challenge is minimal. We will also do our best to keep the project updated and provide interesting and intriguing push rewards if we reach full funding!
