SUPER DUPER UPDATE: We did it!!!!!!!!!!
Folks: We did it — we made our $3,000 goal!!!!!!!!!!!
Actually, we exceeded the goal by about $184! So, a GIGANTIC thanks goes to all of the folks who supported, spread the word and backed the project!!!!
And it should be noted that — thanks to you guys — we reached our goal in about 8 days!!! INCREDIBLE!!
That said, we officially still have more than 30 days to go in the campaign ... and we still have some cool rewards available ... so encourage folks to keep pledging. Any amount we get over the pledge amount goes into the comic so we can make it bigger and better and pay the creative folks more for their work.
Anyway, THANKS!!!!!!!!!!!! We're hard at work on the book as we speak. Look for updates as the campaign marches on!!
