Hello CEREBUS: HIGH SOCIETY Pledge Partner!

Just an -- I hope! -- non-intrusive invitation to "join the All-day fun" as the CEREBUS ARCHIVE NUMBER FOUR campaign comes to a close on Kickstarter TOMORROW. I'll be posting steadily from 9 am ET (2 pm in the UK) to 9 pm ET (6 pm in California) at the Kickstarter site or (if I can't figure out how to do that, which is likely) at the A Moment of Cerebus site.

Hope to see you there!

Dave Sim

PS: I'm doing this for CEREBUS ARCHIVE NUMBER's ONE, TWO AND THREE Pledge Partners as well. If that includes you, please attribute these multiple e-mails to not-so-early-onset Alzheimer's!

CEREBUS ARCHIVE NUMBER TWO.....LIVE, Up and Running

2 likes

Hi Everyone,

My name is John Funk (with John Scrudders permission and at Dave Sims direction) I'm posting an update here regarding the CEREBUS ARCHIVE NUMBER TWO (CANT) Kickstarter project that follows the highly successful CEREBUS ARCHIVE NUMBER ONE (CANO), that ran during May of 2014. The reason I'm interrupting your peaceful day/evening/night is that I'm managing the logistical and communications part of the new campaign on behalf of Dave, and we want to let everyone from the CERBUS: HIGH SOCIETY project to know about the CEREBUS ARCHIVE series on Kickstarter.

So, what is all this about?

Purpose: to raise funds for the Restoration and Preservation -- already in progress -- of the World's Longest Graphic Novel: the 6,000-page, 16-volume CEREBUS (1977 to 2004). 

 Hi! I'm Dave Sim.  We're all making the attempt to keep CEREBUS going 10 years after completion. A perhaps insurmountable uphill struggle but we won't know "yes" or "no" for sure for a while yet.... (more details on the project page).

What's being offered?

  • 10 signed and numbered prints, accurately scanned from Dave's original, archived art boards and reproduced to show all the details of the blue and pencilled in lettering,  and backgrounds as well as the final inked drawings, each print signed and numbered as part of a one-time limited run
  • CEREBUS headsketch
  • Bookplates (personalised, signed  or unsigned options)
  • Birthday phone call with Dave and a follow-up card with a CEREBUS headsketch
  • Spend a day shadowing Dave at the OFF-White House
  • NEW for CANT: BONUS PRINTS! A new selection will be unveiled each Friday and as pledges rise, additional prints can be added to your portfolio
    You can see samples of some of the rewards from CANO at the links below:
    What CANO Backers are Saying About Their Portfolio Package:
    Well, that gives you a pretty good idea of this project. See you over at CEREBUS ARCHIVE NUMBER TWO and take the time to watch the video first! It sums it all up very well.
    Thank you for allowing me to share this.

CEREBUS ARCHIVE NUMBER ONE - Up and Running (LIVE)

Hi Everyone,

My name is John Funk (with John Scrudders permission and at Dave Sims direction) I'm going to post an update here regarding the CEREBUS ARCHIVE NUMBER ONE Kickstarter project that had been announced in April by Dave. The reason I'm interrupting your peaceful day/evening/night is that I'm managing the logistical and communications part of the new campaign on behalf of Dave.

It was recently brought to my attention that there haven't been any updates on this, the original project page, and its possible that some people may not even be aware that the new project is currently live. In fact, there are about 8 days left on it.

I'll keep this relatively short, but just wanted to invite anyone who hasn't checked out the new project to take a look at it and at least watch the 'C-Minus Kid' video (over 1,100 views already, so it must have something that's appealing).

Link to the new project:  https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/c-minus-kid/cerebus-archive-number-one

In short there are a number of different pledge items including:

  • the main feature, a folio of the ten earliest pages in the Cerebus Archvie with commentary by Dave; limited edition, signed and numbered (at this stage of the project, I'll contact you upon receiving notification of your pledge, so there's no need to pre-reserve anymore)
  • discounts for multiple portfolio orders
  • a 35% discount for 'brick and mortar' retail comic stores and free shipping (Canada & USA)
  • sets of 4, 8, 12 or 16 Cerebus Trade Paperback Adhesive Bookplates (option of unsigned, signed or personalised with your name and signed)
  • two options for a headsketch (blue ball point ink or black speedball superblack ink) hand drawn by Dave on the front of the folio envelope
  • a birthday card and phone call from Dave on your birthday
  • a day, or two or three, touring the 'OFF-White House' and time spent visiting with Dave and seeing how he spends his day
  • rewards range in price beginning at $13 for a set of 4 unsigned bookplates

I also want to remind the folks who signed up for the reservation numbers during the pre-project week in late April that in order to HOLD your number, you must make a pledge for the 10 print portfolio. After 8:00 pm EDT on May 31st it will be too late.

Finally, we want you to know that there are rewards mentioned in the list above that do not require you to participate in each future project to hold a reservation number or to continue in a series of sequential reward items. For example the birthday card or the book plates are stand-alone, one time rewards not requiring continuous participation, so keep that in mind.

I'll just close with another link to a great place to get more information and weekly updates directly from Dave (yes, he does drink a cup'o java now and again, usually when he makes the short 'road' trip down to the coffee shop with the Wi-Fi. The site is the 'A Moment of Cerebus' blog and here's the (correct - LOL, sorry Dave, it's not what you posted in your updates) link: http://momentofcerebus.blogspot.com/

Thanks for letting me take up a few minutes of your time. If you have any questions about the current project that haven't been answered in the project description, the FAQ, the updates or the responses to the posted comments and questions please don't be shy about e-mailing me at this address: cerebusarchive [at] geps [dot] ca (this is also the same address to send your reservation request number to (more info on that on the project page noted earlier).

Thanks and take care.

John Funk (on behalf of Dave Sim)
