IMPORTANT: One thing that I forgot is the postage for US residents. I input the international shipping cost but forgot to add one for the US. Could you please add:
$5 postage for tiers $15 through $25
$10 postage for tiers $40 through $85
$15 postage for tiers $100 though $500
Postage is already included for $1000 and up. To update your pledge:
- Click on the ‘manage your pledge’ button to the top right of the page
- Add the appropriate shipping cost to the ‘pledge amount’ at the top of the pledge page
- Click ‘Continue to the next step’ and review the details of your pledge. Make sure that your selected reward is the correct one - the amount should be the your selected reward tier + the shipping cost
- Click ‘Confirm’ and follow the instructions to validate the new amount with Amazon
Please accept my apologies for the error. The shipping cost covers the purchase of boxes, tape, bubble-wrap, plastic sleeves etc., to make sure your rewards reach you in the best possible condition.

What's the story about?
But this is a different time.
Carbon Grey has been a labor of love for my friends and I. We have been working on and off with this project for over a decade. It is a dedication born of passion, perseverance and hard work, and the belief that one day we'll complete this journey. Now that day is finally here.
Last year we successfully launched and executed our first Kickstarter project to fund the second volume of Carbon Grey. We couldn't have done it without the support of the community.
We're now reaching out to the Kickstarter community again to help fund the final chapter. It will be a two issue mini-series published by IMAGE Comics. In order to cut down on the delivery time, we decided to combine issues #2 & #3 into one double-size finale.
We hope you'll join us for the conclusion of Carbon Grey.
Prizes for your support (please note that the delivery date is only an estimate, we still need to confirm the schedule with IMAGE Comics.)
You can find more images of the rewards on our Facebook page.

Risks and challenges
We successfully executed on our last Kickstarter campaign and delivered all rewards. We feel confident that we can do it again, but with any project, there are certain risks that will arise.
We have plans in placed that will mitigate these issues, however there are factors that is beyond our control, like scheduling and conflicting projects.
We learned a great deal from our previous campaign and feel confident that we will manage any problem should it arise. Our project is a work in progress and we feel confident that with hard work and perseverance we will pull through any obstacles. Plus our combined experiences in the comic industry is over 20 years and counting.
