WOW, what a roller coaster ride! It was exhilarating, stressful but most importantly FUN - a lot of fun. It took us over a month to plan, execute and finally launch the campaign. With baited breath we crossed our fingers and hoped that people would take notice of our work and support us. But we knew that, no matter how well we planned, nothing was guaranteed. 

Today, you made it happen. You guys have given us an opportunity to finish what we started over a decade ago. THANK YOU ALL VERY MUCH!!!

When planning the campaign we tried to come up with interesting and unusual rewards that might reflect the spirit of Carbon Grey (beyond just giving away copies of the comic), and as a result we’ve had quite an adventure. It’s given us the opportunity to commission new work from artists and musicians, to learn about manufacturing processes and gain new crafting skills making custom rewards.

It’s also led to us making a lot of new contacts and friends in other creative fields across the Kickstarter community. The feedback and advice from you - our backers and supporters - has encouraged us to go further still.

Unexpectedly Kickstarter has taken us and Carbon Grey into areas we’d never imagined - music, toy manufacture and perhaps even a tabletop game. We’re so grateful for this experience – it’s as valuable to us as the funding itself.

Amazingly we still have some time before the campaign ends, and we're going to push and try for some stretch goals! We'd love to hear your suggestions - please feel free to post them in the comments, or message me.

At its heart (as you’ll discover in volume three!) Carbon Grey is a story about the creative urge, and the consequences of suppressing it. We’re honored that you’ve allowed us the chance to express ours :).

Best - Hoang

      Thanks for your suggestion Jason, we came up with something that was cost effective and also doesn't impact our schedule too much. Your recommendation is very cool, I would love to make Alena von Medeim/Raisa Vasilyeva, the scene where she sit on the throne. Perhaps down the road.
      Thanks Masa!
      Yes Tommy, we did it :)

      These are my sugguestions for stretch goals. I would like to see:

      -A quick orginal sketch card.

      -A Model of one of the ships/vechicals in the story

      -A 2nd figure to be included of Alena von Medeim/Raisa Vasilyeva.

      Hey Spendierhose21, the $14 tier will get you all the PDF files and the soundtrack (digital download)
      Tommy, Khari and I just did a design sketch for Raging Heroes, so you wish might come true :)
      Thank you all, we did it together! I'm so proud of you all, "group hug".

      Since my budget doesn't allow me to purchase much beyond the pledge level 14$ I suggest a new tier at 20$ for all the PDFs and the soundtrack digital download.

      Grats! For a stretch goal you could join forces with Raging Heroes and have a 28mm miniature of the girl in the black bodysuit. Go for a Carbon Grey skirmish game. :-)
