Welcome to the world of THE FUNNY FIENDS!
Created by artists John Detrich and Stephen Blickenstaff, The Funny Fiends are a loving homage to classic monster sticker cards from the '60s and '70s like "Ugly Stickers," "Odd Rods," and the "Nutty Initials."
These retro sticker cards will feature 100 ALL-NEW MONSTER MONIKERS! These are not reprints, reproductions, or imports. John Detrich and Stephen Blickenstaff have spent the past two years hand painting 100 all new characters! Stunning new highly detailed art packaged in true vintage style!
Each "hobby box" will include 24 vintage style hand-folded and heat-sealed wax wrapped packs (number of stickers per pack to be determined, but a minimum of 6). The cards, packs, and boxes are printed, packaged, and assembled entirely in the USA, and are designed to replicate the look and feel of classic monster sticker cards. SideKick specializes in high quality printing techniques, and careful curation of materials to give every product a lasting, loving touch.
The wrappers will be coated in real wax; hold them in your hands and you'll be instantly transported back to your childhood!
In addition to the 100 sticker set, boxes will include randomly inserted chase cards:
- 8 "Do It Yourself" coloring cards, printed on material perfect for markers, colored pencils, pen, ink, or even crayons! (5 per box)
- 8 "3D" Cards. Glasses included! (4 per box)
- 2 Hand-Signed Creator Autograph Cards (1 per box)
*note: chase cards are NOT stickers
Other reward levels give collectors a chance to receive a master set with all 18 chase cards, both autograph cards, color sketches, and printing plates-- the one of a kind metal plates used to print the series!
SideKick has produced some samples and prototypes already. The stickers, wrappers, boxes, and pack designs are all nearly completed and will be ready for pre-press by April. We just need YOUR help to raise the necessary funding to complete the work and go to the printers!

Risks and challenges
SideKick Lab is a printing facility located in Rutland, Vermont. SideKick specializes in accurately reproducing the materials and methods of classic Wax Pack trading cards.
In order to compensate John Detrich & Stephen Blickenstaff, to cover the costs of printing, packaging, assembly, and shipping, we need to collect a small amount to make sure the product is worthwhile for everyone involved.
The good news is that SideKick has a long history of trading card production, and is a well-oiled, fine-tuned machine. SideKick produced Buff Monster's Melty Misfits cards, Topps' Mars Attacks: Occupation, Bobby Aker's "Blood Drive" series, plus many projects for major companies such as Skybound ("Outcast"), Fox ("Bob's Burgers"), PopCap ("Plants vs Zombies"), and many more!
This is SideKick's third foray on Kickstarter. Both previous campaigns were successfully delivered, and taught us a lot about managing expectations of delivery.
This campaign is a much simpler project, and all logistics have been carefully considered and planned for a smoother production and fulfillment.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
