So, a few years ago, we ran a successful Kickstarter to fund three new volumes of the hit webcomic, Least I Could Do, because we had fallen behind in our yearly publishing schedule. It was a rousing success, fun and games were had by all and everyone went home happy! Especially us, as we had three new books to share with all of you!
Later, we met in a dark basement, draped in dark robes and holding candles to provide the only light in the dark room. We stood in a circle and took a blood oath, swearing to the gods of Webcomics and Llamas that we would never fall behind in our book-making again!
Anyways, we’ve fallen behind in our book-making again and find ourselves needing to publish two new volumes of Least I Could Do (years 13 & 14). But what else could we do that’s fun? Well, as you may or may not know LICD has changed a lot since it’s inception in the Year of Our Lord 2002—
Oh yes, It’s true. LICD thrust itself upon the world in 2002, online first, then a print collection shortly thereafter. “WAIT! I KNOW COMICS!” You say. “IF KEPT IN PLASTIC, THOSE EARLY BOOKS SHOULD BE WORTH MILLIONS BY NOW!”
Probably not, but they have become rather scarce. Years 1-5 are a pretty different (though equally hilarious) era in LICD history. So, we want to bring them back in the best way possible; The first-ever LICD OMNIBUS!
In addition to bringing the LICD Books up to date with Years 13 & 14, we’re gonna pack LICD years 1-5 into one 500+ page chunk of comic-strip gold (actual book will not be gold)!
For those not in the know (but seriously how did you get this far without at least Googling?):
Least I Could Do is a webcomic that’s been running since the days of dialup and cell phones that just barely made calls. LICD was created by visionary, genius and self-title-giver Ryan Sohmer. In LICD's third year, Sohmer was joined by full-time Fez-enthusiast and artist Lar deSouza.
Least I Could Do (or LICD because I’m desperately, desperately lazy) Stars Rayne Summers: an alleged adult who lives life free of the doldrums of consequence and concern. Rayne is the guy you always want around, because then he can’t ambush you with paintball guns (sorry, they’re called “markers”), haphazardly made Formal Iron Man suits or Weiner-Mobile Bachelorette parties.
Rayne’s life has taken a turn in the last couple of years. He’s in a stable relationship with Julie, he’s building a home and has even begun using his resources to try and make the world a better place. Of course, this is Rayne, so it involves aircraft carriers, pet drones and more Star Wars role-play than even Julie is comfortable with.
Least I Could Do is a comic strip, but it’s also an uncompromising snapshot of the world around you, whether you like it or not. For 15+ years now, It’s made you laugh, started conversations and made sure that growing up doesn’t have to mean growing old.
Risks and challenges
As with all Kickstarters, there's risk involved in this. But take comfort in the fact that we know how to make books. We've been doing it for over 15 years and have no plans to stop anytime soon!
