Dearest Friends,

Many of you may know that I've been creating a slightly slice-of-life comic called Junior Scientist Power Hour since June 2012, and it's about time that comic was collected in a book!

Junior Scientist Power Hour: Volume 1 would be a collection of the best JSPH comics in a 200 page black and white softcover book.  At some tiers you can also get a companion 26-page comic book, Junior Paleontologist Power Hour, a series of comics about my paleontology field course adventure.

What Is This "JSPH"?

Junior Scientist Power Hour is a webcomic that started out as a humorous autobiographical comic, but became so much more. Sometimes it's about me and my cat, other times it's about a Tough Cop who has a Heart Of Gold, or a #1 Satan. Many people have found it enjoyable, and maybe you will, too! Here are some of the things people are saying about JSPH:

"Abby's comics are just a delight! A must-read for everyone" -My mom

"Abby's comics are sooo funny" -My sister

"You should back Abby's Kickstarter, she is so special and amazing"  -My mom again

These reviewers are entirely impartial judges, so you know you can trust them-- but if you still aren't convinced, let's see if some sample comics will help soften your cold heart:

From "Bad At Games"

From "How Do I Baby"

From "Fantasy World"

If that wasn't enough to make you desire this book with every ounce of your love organs, you can take a look at some actual preview pages, from the ACTUAL BOOK!! 

(note: non-sequential pages)

Because some of my comics don't fill up a whole page, I'm adding over 25 extra drawings, as well as extras and fun stuff in the back! So there is a bunch of never-before-seen content that you will want to get your hands on, my friends,

Wait, you STILL AREN'T CONVINCED? You truly have a heart of ice. But you know, if you back, you can get some sweet rewaaards...

What You Get

Here is a handy visual guide to all of the rewards available to you:

And since the project hit its goal, we now have some fancy new--

If we hit these goals, we get fancy new things!!

 Whoa, face stickers? A whole new comic?? A MYSTERY GOAL?? We'd better hit some of these, or you will be left wondering what could have been.

Risks and challenges

The only real challenge I face is not even that bad! It is just getting everything shipped out in a timely fashion. Fortunately, I have a helpful network of professional friends who have a few books under their belts and who've been giving me stellar advice, and after my last Kickstarter I learned a thing or two about shipping. Mainly, that shipping takes a LOT of time, money, and excel charts.

Which is why I'm going to hire Card Kingdom to fulfill shipping! They have a team of professionals who will make sure it all runs quickly and smoothly, which is preferable to me endlessly shoving things in boxes in my basement, alone, while I should be working on comics.
