We really for real did it! Enough money was raised to make this comic EXACTLY what I hoped it could be! Bruno and I couldn't be more pumped about this. He is, of course, drawing away and thanks to a volunteer editor some small changes that led to HUGE improvements were made to the script and I can't wait to get in your hot little hands!
The only downside is that Bruno is but one artist and he's set to the Herculean task of three men so it will still be a few months before we can send this thing to the printer. So here's the question I'm posing to all of you with grandmothers, congressmen and haikus that need to be dealt with: Would you rather get the less tangible portions of your rewards up front or would you rather wait until you can smell the pages of this (seriously, it's going to be freaking awesome) project?
Let me know where you stand folks! And, most importantly, thank you all again for making amazing things happen. I could never thank you enough.

I will hitchhike across the United States dressed as Spider-man, blogging and videotaping the entire adventure for the http://amtrekker.com website (and your own site if you'd like), listing you as the sponsor for each and every blog post and video clip, show up at your house, sleep on your couch, make you eggs for breakfast and then disappear just as quickly! Oh, and you can have a copy of the sketch cover edition of the comic, a copy of the regular run of the comic, the digital edition of the comic, an original page of artwork. AND, the heartiest of hearty thank yous. (No poetry though. I draw the line at poetry.)
