Be 'cool' and get ICECUBES The Book!
This is it folks! The last push. We had a great turnout at the Fun-Raiser in New Orleans and if you weren't there this is your chance to order your very own signed and numbered copy of ICECUBES the Book!
There will only be 200 numbered copies of this first print run. Secure your own copy here and I'll even sign it for you!
This is no mere comic book! ICECUBES The Book will be beautifully printed using 4 color offset presses. The format is landscape 9.5" x 6" and will feature over 100 pages of almost 200 full color strips, drawings and behind the scene sketches. This first print run will be a limited edition of only 200 numbered copies.
Offset press, full color, landscape format, over 100 pages!
Without you, the very first printed ICECUBES book would not be possible. Your contribution goes directly to pay for the costs of designing, printing and distributing the book. (Please note that Amazon takes a 5% service fee and Kickstarter also takes another 5% commission, the remaining 90% of your pledge goes directly to printing ICECUBES The Book.)
Watch the video and find out more about ICECUBES the comic strip. You can also read ICECUBES online.
Thanks so much for your support. We are looking forward to sharing the book with all of you!
About ICECUBES: Somewhere in the remote Alaskan wilderness, an unlikely menagerie of Arctic characters shares unusual warmth, despite the frosty environs of their daily existence. Led by a deep-thinking sensitive polar bear named Peckinpaw and joined by Freeze, a South Pole penguin émigré with attitude, Nooky, an Innupiaq entrepreneur who likes fishing and golf, and the bon-vivant walrus Eggman, this comic crew ponders it's very existence as told in this collection of contemporary tales from the top of the planet.
ICECUBES is drawn and written by Leroy Brown and appears online at www.icecubescomic.com
Here are some sample pages from the book!
Kickstarter seems really complicated, can I support ICECUBES the book without going through Kickstarter?
Yes. Kickstarter does have some complicated steps that unfamiliar users may find confusing to make a pledge. So to make sure that everyone who wants to support ICECUBES gets a chance to, we have set up a Paypal account you can pay directly into. Simply go to Paypal and send your pledge to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask me at the email address above. Thanks!
If you want to pre-order more than one book simply pledge the amount for the number of books you would like and send me a message to let me know. You can reach me through Kickstarter or by emailing me at email@example.com. Thanks!
Of course, you can pledge any amount! Every bit helps and you will get all the rewards associated with the closest award option.
I want the download of ICECUBES Vol.1 & 2 for the Kindle, but I don't have a Kindle. Can I download it to an iPad or other device?Yes! You can read ICECUBES Vol.1 & 2 using an iPad, iPhone, Android or laptop. Simply go to Amazon.com and get the appropriate app for your device. It will let you read your ICECUBES download.
Well, provided that I get the necessary funding to meet the goal of $3600, I will be sending the files to the printer right away. The printer says they will take 2 weeks to print plus another week to ship, so my extimation is that I will have the books in hand beginning of April. Then I will be mailing them out to those of you who have pledged for your copy of the book. Short answer: April 2012.
It means that this is the very first print run of ICECUBES the book. In fact these comics have never appeared in print before, ever! So this first print run will be a collectors dream. It will be a short run (200 copies) and each copy will be numbered from 1 to 200. So if you own a numbered copy (say #25) of the very first print run of ICECUBES, then you automatically own a collectors item!
