We are entered upon the great task of publishing not one, but two Frederick the Great story arcs in a single volume!  These will include:

Pablo Picasso and the Invasion of the Collective Unconscious: Picasso has a plan to insert himself at the core of art itself, and all he needs to do it is a gent by the name of Carl Jung.  Even aided by Sigmund Freud and Joseph Campbell, can our team prevail?

We Learned of Monarch Secrets!
We Learned of Monarch Secrets!

Economic Assassins and an Improbable Fortress!  The Power of Improbability has hired Karl Marx to assassinate the middling figures of history who stand in the way of his plans!  Featuring the death of Peter the Great, the rise of Winged Robert Hooke, and one giant naked Lenin!

And Tertiary Historical Figures Galore!
And Tertiary Historical Figures Galore!

AND IN ADDITION!  If we make it to $3000, we shall include a digitial copy of the very first arc, centering around Salvador Dali's attempt to tap the world Id, featuring totally redrawn art by The Count!  Not available to the general public until 2014!  See the story that started it all - for the first time, again!  To give you a taste, here's Episode 7 as it originally appeared in 2007:

And now, here it is as we redid it just one month ago! 

We're really excited about getting the chance to go back and redo all these old episodes, but we need your help, so Brother, Can You Spare a Groschen?

Risks and challenges

Our first volume, Light Opera and Heavy Consequences, generated a list of Things We'll Do Next Time, and now that time is upon us! This volume will be much larger, but with the tricks that we learned our first time around, we're looking to have this guy published and in your hands by May!
