    SECRETS OF THE UNIVERSE TIER
    You will get the PDF, sticker sheet, a print copy of the book, and the prose story from the WRITER'S EDITION. What makes this tier cool is that included with each book is a secret about Flynt's universe that only you and the creative team will know. Each book comes with a unique secret. Most of the secrets we have plans to eventually divulge in the book. Some fairly soon, some not for years down the road. There is one secret for each member of the group and a some for a few of the bad guys. The secret is yours to do with as you please.

Note, Ryan and Keith can draw practically whatever, but you'll have to lower your expectations with Josh. He has some art talent, but it is limited. Lyle has been practicing really hard, but can only draw one thing (D.A.M.O.N.), so that's the sketch you get. CANADA add $10 shipping, International add $25.

    YOU'RE A PART OF THIS TIER
    Included in this tier is the PDF, sticker sheet, a print copy of the book, and a printed copy of the prose story from the WRITER'S EDITION. What makes this tier cool is that you are part of the story. You won't be just some some lousy background character, you will be directly involved with the reason Flynt was in the Mediterranean the day he gets taken into space. You play a significant role in the prose story (and Flynt's origin in general). We'll want a few photos of course to want to make sure you look like you if we ever have to draw you sometime (you might be on the prose story cover). We'll also throw in 2 extra copies of both the print book and prose story so when we get a big Hollywood movie you can sell a set for a Ferrari or something. The other set is for the extra garage you need to build to house that Ferrari. Also, after Keith has finished the cover for the prose story, we will offer it up for sale at $150 plus shipping. You will get a chance to buy the original art from the prose story cover after the $250 tier buyer chooses if they want it first. At this tier, any additional copies of the book you purchase as add-ons will include a copy of the prose story for free so you can impress your friends and bullies if you like. Nothing says "Wait, I'm cool." more than appearing in a comic book. CANADA add $5 shipping, International add $15.

    IT'S ALL YOUR FAULT TIER
    Included in this tier is the PDF, sticker sheet, a print copy of the book, and a printed copy of the prose story from the WRITER'S EDITION. What makes this tier cool is that you are part of the story. You won't be just some some lousy background character, you will be Flynt's war buddy, and the reason he was in the Mediterranean the day he gets taken into space. You will be mentioned in the comic (and probably future issues). Your picture will be in Keith's cover for the prose story, and you will play a big role in that prose story (and Flynt's origin in general). We'll want a few pics of course to make sure you look like you on the cover. We'll also throw in 2 extra copies of the print book and prose story so you can give one to your high school guidance counselor and one to your parents. What better way to show them that you finally made something of yourself. Also you get first chance to buy the original art for the prose story cover for $150 plus shipping if you want (remember you will be in it). Don't worry, you don't have to decide if you want to add the original piece until after it's finished. At this tier, any additional copies of the book you purchase as add-ons will include a copy of the prose story for free so you can show one all the girls that spurned you in High School while playing Toby Keith's "How Do You Like Me Now?!" That'll show 'em. CANADA add $5 shipping, International add $15.

    FRUIT PIES TIER
    Included in this tier is the PDF, sticker sheet, and 25 copies of the book. What makes this tier cool is that your store/website/podcast/product will be in a full-page ad in the book. Rather than just some pre-made ad, Keith will custom draw a cool single page comic reminiscent of the old Hostess Fruit Pie ads from the Marvel 70's and 80's comics, but featuring our cast members, and your product(s). You don't even have to be a retailer. If you just want us to draw a single page comic where your presence stops the bad guys, we'll do it! We'll of course need a picture of you or your product (or both), to make this work. Plus you'll have 25 copies of the book to give to friends, family, customers, clients, or to sell in your store. At this tier, any additional copies of the book you purchase as an add on will be doubled for free so you can have more for promotional purposes if you like. Not only can you use the ad for your promotional needs, but any reprints/trade paperbacks we print will also include your add at no additional cost to you (ever). We will send you high quality PDF files of the ad so you can use it for promotional campaigns for years to come if you like. Also Keith has agreed to make the original art available for purchase for additional $150 plus shipping to you, if you want something cool to hang in your office. Don't worry, you don't have to decide if you want to add the original piece until after it's finished. CANADA add $10 shipping, International add $35.
