50K UNLOCKED! EISNER AWARD WINNER PAOLO RIVERA JOINS GHA!

2 comments

Holy crap everybody! $50K? FIFFFFTY KAAAAYYYYYY!!!!???!

I never thought we would see the day. You guys made this happen. It's all you. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. 

Thanks.

So the 50K stretch goal has been unlocked. You will all be getting a digital version of the early unpublished Ryan Browne and Mike Costa comic "Amazing Adventures of Science Fact." Brace yourselves for 52 pages of questionable drawing, humor and an appearance by Carl Winslow. BOSS!

AND THE BIG EXCITING NEWS

Remember that folded poster you guys are all getting (except you digital only folks)? Well it will be illustrated by none other than my ex-college roommate and Eisner Award winning artist Paolo Rivera!!!! Can you stand it? So excited for this one. So, so excited. He has just finished up his Eisner winning run on Daredevil and now he is lending his skills to team GHA. If you haven't seen his work yet, it's amazing. Head on over to http://www.paolorivera.com to check it out and follow him on twitter at @paolomrivera

Anddddd since he hasn't finished the poster illustration, he has offered up a quick GHA sketch to prove his dedication to Sparkle Motion! Check it out! SO COOL!

ANNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD

In final news, I have added a new backer level. They are already going super duper fast so get yours while you still can! BEHOLD!

THE PERSONAL SARCASTIC INSULT EDITION: Not for the faint of heart, you get one copy of God Hates Astronauts The Completely Complete hardcover edition featuring a personalized snarky inscription! For example, say your name is Bruce, the inside might say "Hey Bruce, thanks for spending your daily hooch allowance on GHA instead of hooch!" It will then be signed and numbered as the personal sarcastic insult edition! UH MATURE AUDIENCES ONLY?

How does THAT sound? We all good? Oh yeah, I guess we need a new stretch goal. Hmm... well let me think about it a second and I'll get back to you. Hit me up on twitter at @RyanBrowneArt with your suggestions. THANKS EVERYONE! SERIOUSLY THIS IS INCREDIBLE!!!!!!

RYAN.
