STRETCH GOALS!

Note: Stretch goals apply to every backer level in which I ship you an actual book.

STRETCH GOAL 1: $20,000 (UNLOCKED!) A double-sided GHA full color bookmark! I know you'll read GHA in one incredibly long trip to the bathroom, but hey, you read other books right? Those'll probably need a bookmark—and why not make it a GHA bookmark?

STRETCH GOAL 2: $24,000 (UNLOCKED) A GHA full color sticker! Litter the town with petty vandalism using the GHA sticker! Perfect for placing on the windshield of a cop car while he's arresting you for public intoxication!

STRETCH GOAL 3: $28,000 (UNLOCKED) A GHA full color signed and numbered bookplate! What's a bookplate? Who knows—but they will come with every copy of GHA and boy will they class up the book! Sample book plate conversation is as follows:

Them- "Hey dude/dudette, what's that cool signed and numbered illustration doing on your coffee table?"

You- "Oh that's not just a signed and numbered illustration, that's a BOOKPLATE!"

Them- "SWEET MERCY YOU'RE ONE FANCY DUDE/DUDETTE!"

STRETCH GOAL 4: $32,000 (UNLOCKED) The hardcover book will get a seriously fancy upgrade in the form of UV SPOT COATING on the cover! That's right, it'll have fancy gloss accents on the cover that will class up the joint in a way never even dreamed feasible. NOW WE'RE TALKING!!!

STRETCH GOAL 5: $36,000 (UNLOCKED) Every copy of the hardcover will come with a folded GHA mini-poster! These posters are perfect for dorm rooms, opium dens and for hiding small escape tunnels in prison cell walls! Class up the damn joint with a mini-poster! UPDATE! THE MINI-POSTER WILL NOW BE ILLUSTRATED BY EISNER AWARD WINNING ARTISTS PAOLO RIVERA! HOW COOL IS THAT?

Here is a sketch from Paolo to announce his involvement in GHA!
Here is a sketch from Paolo to announce his involvement in GHA!

STRETCH GOAL 6: $40,000 (UNLOCKED) I will produce a brand new God Hates Astronauts 12 hour improv comic! I will be draw for 12 hours straight, an hour per page with no preplanning. This new amazing story will not be in the book and will be given to every single Kickstarter backer in digital PDF form! How exciting is that? Very exciting.

STRETCH GOAL 7: $44,000 (UNLOCKED) Everyone will get a PDF of the Ryan Browne sketchbook! That's right people! It will contain at least 50 pages (I'm not sure how many, but it will be at least 50) of early God Hates Astronauts drawings, random sketches, prep stuff from Manhattan Projects, and some fun early early work! I'm going to go deep into the depths to put this bad boy together and show you some fun Ryan Browne madness! Not available anywhere else!

STRETCH GOAL 8: $50,000 (UNLOCKED) Everyone will get a digital download of both issues of the never before released comic, "Amazing Adventures of Science Fact!"—a book that features little adventure and almost no scientific fact. Story and art by me and Written by Mike Costa (Smoke and Mirrors, G.I. Joe Cobra). We made this comic right before God Hates Astronauts and is pretty rough, but still has some life to it plus a crap load of hilarious jokes! Unfortunately, the book was never colored, but it still reads well! Never released but totally rocks the house! 

STRETCH GOAL 9: $55,000 (UNLOCKED) Everyone will get a digital PDF download of the first chapter of "BLAST FURNACE: RECREATION THIEF VOLUME 2: THE SEARCH FOR MORE MONEY!" That's right folks, BLAST FURNACE IS BACK and the first chapter is done! Production on this book isn't going to be as fast and furious as the first because my schedule is so crammed, but the second volume is underway! You will get all 25 pages of the first chapter, fired right into your eyeballs! ALSO, anyone who has purchased Blast Furnace will get a free digital download of volume one! BLAST FURNACE IS BACK!!!

STRETCH GOAL 10: $60,000 (UNLOCKED) This one is special just for those that have purchased the Star Grass Resin Statue. Sculptor Gabriel Dorsey is going to add a fast food accessory pack! Contains a resin burger, soda, fries and greasy meal sack! Place them with your statue and really class up the joint! OH BOY!

STRETCH GOAL 11: $65,000 (UNLOCKED) You get a PDF download of all the new origin stories that I will be making for GHA fans! With their consent, you will get digital versions of the five new two-page origin stories that I am doing for the $650 origin story backers! These things are going to be crazy fun and I'm excited to share them with everyone! YAY!

WHAT IS GHA? 

From the creator of "Blast Furnace: Recreational Thief" and "Smoke and Mirrors" comes the ultimate collection of the most outrageous weirdo parody comic on the web, GOD HATES ASTRONAUTS. Imagine a book that is a bizarre mix of "The Venture Brothers", "Aqua Teen Hunger Force", "The Tick" and that hilarious Billy Bob Thornton film "The Astronaut Farmer." 

GHA follows the story of a group of incompetent, small-minded, super powered narcissists called "The Power Persons Five" who are hired by NASA to stop all farmers from launching themselves into space in homemade rocket ships. Unfortunately, for NASA, this goal is scarcely even addressed and the book focuses more on extramarital affairs, bank robing owls, big gross swollen heads, ghost cow heads, olde tyme boxers, tigers eating cheeseburgers in the Crab Nebula, buffalo judges and tons of aggressive swearing. Not as much a superhero book as it is a parody of basically everything and a celebration of weird that is jam-packed with references to Robo-Cop and Die Hard. Read the first three issues HERE!

Some sample pages from the main story.

This book contains all three oversized issues—re-lettered, color tweaked and perfected from what you saw on the web. It also contains the two original GHA 24-page, 24-hour comics, tons of amazing pin-ups, a full reference guide for the series AND 18 ORIGINAL TWO-PAGE ORIGIN STORIES WRITTEN BY ME AND DRAWN BY OTHER AMAZING ARTISTS! Check below for all the amazing artists involved.

Also included is the original theme song for GHA as written and performed by MURDER BY DEATH! Every single backer level will get a digital download of the theme song that they can listen to as they read the book! It's soooo awesome and will infect your soul with joy!

I am proud to say that THE ENTIRE BOOK IS FINISHED, all in need is your help to fund the printing of the darn thing and then everyone wins! If you liked what you read from my last successful Kickstarter, "Blast Furnace: Recreational Thief", you'll love God Hates Astronauts.

Since the book is done and ready to print, what I need from all of you is to invest in the backer incentives on the side bar and become a part of GHA. I couldn't have gotten this far without all the awesome support from my fans. They are truly the reason why GHA has continued to live on for the last six years. As I did with the "Blast Furnace" Kickstarter, I will be printing the book as soon as the campaign ends to ensure that you will all get your copies as soon as possible!

"God Hates Astronauts is the best comic you'll ever read." -From the introduction by Chris Burnham (Batman Inc., Officer Downe)

Just to show you that I'm not messing around—BEHOLD! THE ENTIRE 180 PAGE BOOK IS DONE!

RE-LETTERED AND COLOR TWEAKED FROM THE WEB VERSION.

Since issue one of God Hates Astronauts is six years old, I decided to "George Lucas" it a bit with new lettering and color tweaks. The entire script and drawings are the same, but it has a new coat of paint to make it and easier transition between issues. CHECK IT.

TESTIMONIALS FOR GOD HATES ASTRONAUTS

"Listen up here—open your ears, people—this web-comic is AWESOME." -Felicia Day (The Flog) Watch the episode here!

"Like witnessing the last throes of a terminally diseased mind, but even funnier." -Ivan Brandon (Viking, Men of War, Wolverine)

"Writing is hard. Art is harder. Storytelling is hardest. Ryan Browne is the best pure storyteller I've seen in years and GOD HATES ASTRONAUTS is his masterpiece. GHA is a blend of humor, heartstrings, high-art, and Browne makes it look and feel effortless. God wants you to read this book.  Unless you're an astronaut. He hates them." -Jai Nitz (Dream Thief, Paper Museum)

"God Hates Astronauts is genius. Bear armies, the disadvantages of immortality, a jealous cow-spirit, Montel Williams and a likable character with a hideous, vomit-inducing swollen face. Do not miss it. I'm serious."-Zander Cannon (Top Ten, Heck)

"Ryan Browne is one of the most original voices in comics I've ever come across, and GOD HATES ASTRONAUTS is proof he can do it all. Everything from the art to the dialogue to the goddamn SOUND EFFECTS is used to make you double over in laughter. Oh - and GHA does it with superheroes, proving that just when you think you've seen it all in that genre, you haven't. Ryan is going to make the rest of us have to work a lot harder now. GOD may HATE ASTRONAUTS, but I hate Ryan Browne." -Mark Sable (Graveyard of Empires)

"The funniest and most original book I've read in years. A hilarious writer and excellent artist, Ryan Browne is the next Mike Allred." -Darick Robertson (Transmetropolitan, The Boys)

"CRAZIEST book I've put my eyes on. And that's meant to be a BIG compliment." -Francesco Francavilla (Black Beetle)

SOME EXCERPTS FROM GHA (without words).

Read the first three issues online here!

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. VERY SINCERELY, THANK YOU. God Hates Astronauts is a true labor of love and the most important thing I have ever done in my career. From the very start I have done everything on the book and have continued to lose money on web-hosting and self-publishing—but it's all been worth it. The compliments and reactions from the growing fan base and other professionals have made it worthwhile and have continued to cheer me on in this books creation. THANK YOU… YOU GUYS MADE THIS HAPPEN.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

The risks and challenges are extremely low with God Hates Astronauts because the book is done, the printer has given it's final quote, and I am ready to print as soon as I get funding. The challenge will be filling all the orders, but I already have a group of friends committed to helping me fulfill every order and a connection with the UPS Store. Everything that I learned doing my last Kickstarter has me fully prepared for this one!

FAQ

  • YES! If you would like to add a copy of Blast Furnace to your order, simply increase your pledge by $10 for domestic and $12 for international. When the project ends, I will be sending out surveys. On that survey it will ask you if you added money for a copy of Blast Furnace and all you will need to do is check yes, and it will keep it all organized for me. Sound good?
