Update #23

Want to Star in a Comic Book?

Comment

In case you are missing this at our new Kickstarter page, we have started on the cameos-- we've added seevearl more otions to star in Leon, Roboy and Buzzboy-- check it out!

Here's just one of the cameos from Buzzboy-- first up, Joe Murray from Captain Bluehen, with text added. We've already shown this page, but I wanted you to see that we can really hit the likeness-- or Rich can, when he fixes up my art to his satisfaction! :)

Joe is one of our oldest friends in comics, and a retailer that can take on anything! His comics shop in Newark DE, Captain Bluehen Comics is super cool! It's funny, but I really didn't think to push the comic book cameos on facebook until last night-- and a few of you were kind enough to upgrade to the Cameo tier-- if you know anyone who wants their shot at comics stardom, either in the affordable $100 cameo, or as a featured character (See the $300 tier), this is their chance!

Thanks again-- and if you are one of the many from the first Kickstarter project, welcome back!

John


Update #22

Please come back to the Diner!

Comment

In reviewing who has re-backed us at our new Kickstarter project for the all-ages graphic novels, I was shocked to see over half of our backers did not return to back us again.

Wow.

I can only hope it's because they didn't realize their last backings were not billed, and they needed to resubmit in order to back us again.

Many are family friends. Some were Kickstarter regulars-- regardless, if you are one of those 38 people that previously backed Jamar, Rich, and I in our quest to create all ages comics and GN's, pleae, please consider doing so again.

here's what I sent out:

In case you did not know it-- we need you to resubmit your backing!

We have resubmitted our Kickstarter project, and hope you'll back us again! We've added new rewards and more! We've lowered the price on getting a full set of Buzzboy, Roboy, and Leon, in soft or hardcover!

It's not too late to help make three cartoonists' dreams com true!

We hope you'll help us fight for truth justice, and an end to anonymity! :)

Thanks!

John, Rich & Jamar


Update #21

Come meet John in San Diego Comic-Con!

Comment

That's right-- I'll be at Booth 1231 all show, signing-- get this-- Buzzboy: Sidekicks Rule! That's right, the first of the three books is printed and on its way to SD! 

What's this, you say? How can we move forward without Kickstarter being over? We always said we were moving forward regardless, that this was really a way to get the pre-orders for the books, and ensure that we could publish all 3. One thing we all agreed upon was that all the money made off the books would go to print ALL the books-- so by having BB in San Diego, and Roboy in Baltimore in Aug., and Leon in NYC in the fall, we could stagger costs, and have each book pay for the next.

Originally BB wasn't to premiere until altimore Comic-Con Aug 20-21, but some major happenings have taken place-- announcements to be made this week, at the show, that demanded one of us be at the show. Since Buzzboy was the farthest along, I got the nod.

So-- if you are a backer, or know someone going to the show, I will be happy to hand you your copy of Buzzboy this week, in advance of the Kickstarter conclusion-- why? Bcause I am that sure that this time, we will hit the magic number!

inally, please spread the word, "Like"us on Facebook, Plus us on Google whatever-- we need your help!

Talk to you in a few...


Update #20

IMPORTANT! We need you to resubmit your backing at our new fundraiser page!

Comment

This weekend a backer from the Comic Book Diner failed (sniff) Kickstarter project said she was so happy to back our NEW kickstarter project and get some cool GN's for her kids and friends.

She thought because she backed the last one (this one) she was already rolled over into the next one.

about the Kickstarter set-up

1. if a project does not reach its goal, NO ONE IS BILLED

2. In order to get the cool rewards from before, and back our project you need to resubmit.

please head over to our new Kickstarter page-- currently we are posting some brand bew art from the Buzzboy origin story...

Thanks

John
