Wow, last night was... epic! The limited edition hardcovers received WAY more attention than I initially assumed! I honestly thought they'd last a couple days, but, at the writing of this post, we are down to 19 available sets spread through 3 remaining tiers! The coolest thing about the pledge rush from last night is that we are now over our $50k pledge goal!!
Yep! That's right, ALL copies of Volume 1 and 2 will now be produced in the NEW larger, glossier book format to match the brand new Volume 3! That means anybody who has pledged to receive all three books (in soft cover format) will automatically be upgraded to the new print run!
To answer a few questions regarding the hardcover books: these will have the exact same content as the soft-cover editions, including bonus chapters, pin-ups, etc. They will all match in size and will be in the new, higher quality print/large size!
So, now that we've reached our $30k, $40k and $50k stretch goals, what next?
Well, with only 6 days to go, it's definitely a stretch, but we do have more stretch goals... we'll likely get at least a few new backers when the 48 hour reminder e-mails go out, so it's quite possible we'll be able to do still more!
At $60k, we'll be upgrading the paper in ALL books (softcover and limited edition hardcover) from 80# to 100# paper. It's a bit heavier and more durable, which will make for a slightly thicker, heavier book. At the $60k level we can afford to upgrade all books, plus account for the extra shipping costs.
At $70k, we can pay for visas, flight and hotel costs to fly one of our main artists (most likely Rocio) to a convention in the U.S. She'll be able to sign books, meet fans, answer questions, maybe do a joint panel or two with Krazy Krow... Plus we could coordinate a fan meet up (maybe a larger version of the "goat roast" for those of you who were there?)
So yes, still more fun and adventures to come!
I'll see you soon!
