65K Unlocked! Fulfillment has started and the limited painted statue!


Thanks so much for your continued support of GHA. I can't believe that we have blown away every single stretch goal! The final goal of $65K has been unlocked so everyone will be getting the digital download of the new origin stories that I will be creating for the five lucky Origin Level backers! So fun!!!

Just to sum up what everyone is getting because there is a lot of value in every pledge!

Every backer will get:

The PDF of the book, the MP3 Theme Song by Murder By Death, a PDF of the new 12 hour GHA mini-comic, the PDF of "Amazing Adventures of Science Fact", the PDF of the first chapter of Blast Furnace Volume Two and a PDF the new origin stories. HOLY CRAP THAT'S A TON OF VALUE!

Every backer at $30 or better will also get:

The GHA full color bookmark, The GHA sticker, The GHA bookplate by Joe Quinones and Maris Wicks, The GHA folded Mini-Poster by Paolo Rivera and Spot UV Coating on their signed hardcover (have no fear, all books will be signed by me!). HOLY HOLY HOLY CRAP THAT'S A TON OF VALUE!

Andddddd if you got the statue as well you will get the fast food accessory pack! JEEPERS!

In other news:

If you have gotten one of the limited edition versions (I.E. The upside-down or backwards edition etc.) I will be making custom stamps to mark these editions. When I've marked all the editions, I will randomly pack that used one of a kind stamp into the package of one lucky backer per edition! So if for example, you backed the Upside-Down Edition, one lucky backer out of the 39 will have the used stamp packed with the book! HOW FUN!

In other, other news:

I have started working on order fulfilling! I've been signing Blast Furnaces and doing doodles all week to get ready for packing your books as soon as I get them in! Holy crap is my hand tired! YIKES! Check out the photos below.

In other, other, other news:

Sculptor Gabriel Dorsey has been awesome enough to hand paint ONE limited edition statue! That's right, it's a one of a kind! I have added it to the backer levels at $300 and it comes with a copy of the hardcover book labeled as the PAINTED STATUE VARIANT. ONLY ONE WILL EXIST! So cool!

Okay that's like a million updates. Sorry it took so long! I think now we are at 45 hours left... help spread the word and help GHA have a strong, STRONG finish! You all rule and I am eternally grateful for your involvement in making the GHA dream come true!

      Hah thanks everyone! Much appreciated!
      Tyler the stamp thing is easy. I'm just making a custom rubber stamp to mark every special edition. When I'm done marking them, the stamp will be randomly placed in one backers package! Cool huh?

      Arnout, no $70K stretch goal. Frankly I'm out of ideas and everyones already getting a ton of added value. YAY! :D

      Sweet mother of all that's wrong in the world, am I glad I jumped on this bandwagon. What, though, no last-minute $70K stretch?
