SUPER MEGA COMICS BOOK: EVERYTHING ELSE IN MY LIFE IS...

Great project guys!  If you missed the Kickstarter and would like to order/pre-order the book and other items, click the blue button above or click HERE to visit the post-Kickstarter store!  Or just go to www.supermegacomics.com to see what Super Mega is up to! Thanks for helping bring Super Mega back in full force while commemorating 12 years of history and showing how many fans are out there!!

My name is Brett Brimmer (also known as Johnny Smash.)  When I was a hot young teen, I created Super Mega Comics.  That was in 2004.  I was almost legal and had messy blonde hair.  These happy stick figure comics morphed and changed over the years, but the innocence of the funny little stick men has always stayed the same.

 

 

There's one problem- when you turn your computer box off you can't see the comics because the internet isn't real and nothing is real.  So I thought it's about time to fix that with a Super Mega book!

Help what is a book?

"Super Mega: Everything Else In My Life Is Pretty Depressing Compared To This" is a 160 page collection of the best and most iconic comics from Super Mega's 12 year history.  But it's not just a comic collection book, there's new content on almost every page like Bonus Frames, Fan Art, All-New Book Exclusive Comics, Guest Comics, and Doodles.  This will make a great coffee table book since it only features the best of the best comics.  It also has a foreword written by the infamous Ryan North of Dinosaur Comics!

Get Drawn Into Your Favorite Comic ($200 Level)

If Super Mega is real life and real life is virtual reality, then here is Sean:

Look at the beautiful desert and those cloudy skies. You think he would be happy. But he knows that perfection only comes from erasing all beauty from life then being engulfed in the yellow joy cloud of Super Mega. At least for a moment.:

Now Sean can go on the Super Mega website and look at his comic below the original comic. He doesn't need to go to other web sites anymore. He doesn't need his wife and kids. He can't go to jail for running away. He wanders the streets. Nowadays, there is always a computer somewhere where he can look at his comic, just one more time. 

But this is not the end for Sean. It is only. The. Beginning. (Now it shows Sean flex and grow muscles and he pulls out a laser gun and starts shooting at some robots that look evil.)

Guest Starring

Ryan North from Dinosaur Comics as "Foreword Writer Guy"

Of course I always knew it wasn't really a silly dinosaur writing those comics, but it's one of those facts you just try not to think about.  The thought of a T-Rex using a keyboard with its tiny arms is just too fun!  Well it turns out Ryan is a real life grown up like me and he's gonna write the foreword for the book.  Dinosaur Comics is a seriously great comic, I don't know how he manages to pump pump pump out all the hilarious content and I'm devastatingly excited to collaborate with him!

Zack "Jick" Johnson, creator of Kingdom of Loathing as Guest Comic Guy

There's only room for one web site with funny stick figures, but before I blow up my laptop (which I believe will destroy the entire internet), it's time for some stick figure streams to cross!  Kingdom of Loathing is a sweet web-based hilarious RPG where you can use a stick figure to fight things.  I can't wait to see Zack apply his stick figure humor where it belongs and delete his web site so mine is the only one.  (I am joking, his website came first hahahaha PLFGHH I love you.)

Wolfrad Senpai (Link Here) as Another Guest Comic Guy Who Speaks The Language Of Italy

This guy makes a comic that has a pretty nice following in Italy, and is fantasy themed and pretty fun.  (There are some English ones for me to read because I'm an idiot and can't speak Italian.)  I put a call out to see if any fans with webcomics were interested and he responded, which is great!  I want to collaborate with more people so if you have a webcomic or relevant website or know someone who does please message me on here or e-mail me at johnnysmash@gmail.com!!!

Stretch Goals (closer up pictures)

$7000 - Everyone gets an "Instincts" sticker with each copy of the book and/or t-shirt:

You will not need tape for the real sticker but if you really want to tape it to make sure then go for it
You will not need tape for the real sticker but if you really want to tape it to make sure then go for it

$9000 - Everyone gets a "Bookmark Boy" bookmark with each copy of the book and/or t-shirt

$11,000 - Everyone gets a "Puppies on Top of Other Animals" refrigerator magnet with each copy of the book and/or t-shirt

 $14,000 - Everyone gets a "Funky Man" character pin along with a "Funky Man" e-book with all the Funky Man comics, a drawing guide, and new content

 

Risks and challenges

Since most of the content is already created, the challenge will just be creating new content and getting additional content from collaborators in a timely manner. Other risks include dealing with printing companies internationally and unforeseen delays from them, though the company I am working with (Print Ninja) has a great track record and is very professional. I have already dealt with international printing companies so I believe I have the experience to make this a fairly simple process.
