The Illustrious Gentlemen Comic and Booze Podcast

$950

16

The Illustrious Gentlemen is a podcast that was started in 2016 and is hosted by professional comic book artists, Scott Godlewski and Ryan Cody. Ryan has worked on smaller indie books for publishers like Dark Horse Comics and Dynamite Entertainment while Scott has co-created a book at Image Comics and currently does work for DC Comics. The Illustrious Gentlemen (TIG Show) started as a way for them to get outside of their stuck-behind-the-art-table, freelance-lifestyle mentality, and force themselves to interact like normal humans and share a beer or cocktail together. Even if it's just for one hour a week. Both are full-time creatives from Arizona and both have wives and children. TIG Show topics cover things such as; the challenges and advantages of being a freelance artist, family, working in the comic book industry and booze. Occasionally we even have other professional creators on with us! Each week they sample a new drink and rate it for themselves and their listeners. There are over 65 episodes available at our website already! This Kickstarter is designed to cover our web and podcast hosting fees for the year, as well as other minor expenses. It is also a way to reward our listeners for sticking with us through 65+ episodes and going along with the ride for us for the next year's worth!

STRETCH GOAL! If we reach $1,000 we'll produce a very special episode on Free Comic Book Day with audio interviews and a video featuring over a dozen professional creators. This will be filmed and recorded at Samurai Comics in Mesa, AZ on May 4th and 5th, 2018.

Our reward tiers offer something for everyone, including chances for us to promote your product, artwork, brewery, website, or social media accounts on the show with our sponsor tiers. We also have some very limited, brand new, merchandise!

 This KS Exclusive t-shirt is unisex and made available only to backers of this campaign. This design will be retired after this opportunity.

An Illustrious shot glass! (*if you pledge more than $30 or get the Illustrious Package, message us to make sure you get a shot glass!)

Perfect for whatever your needs may be, this 8oz. TIG Show flask will let everyone know that you are a person of distinguished class.

 The ultimate in living an Illustrious lifestyle is The Illustrious Package!

 

Risks and challenges

As we're already an up and running podcast with over 18 months of episodes behind us, the only risk if this doesn't get funded is you might miss out on some sweet rewards! Seriously, the show, as they say, will continue on no matter what.
