About this project

$1,532

11 o'clock comics is an insanely popular podcast hosted by Vince, David, Chris and Jason. Out of their wonderful show has sprung a message board community filled with amazing fans, but also amazing writers, artists and designers.

EVEN THOUGH WE ARE FUNDED, PLEASE PLEDGE!! WE WANT TO PRINT AS MANY COPIES AS WE CAN

THANK YOU SO MUCH

The total page count is now 133!!!

Myself and several members of the message board have set out to put together an anthology to celebrate the show and each other.  We have many a wealth of talent in this community(some having professional backgrounds, some do not) and what started as an idea has become a reality. A comicbook anthology to showcase each other is our goal, but we need some help with printing costs.

We already have over 40 pages of finished stories and I have seen many other stories in the works, that will be completed shortly. The total should reach about 100 pages of Black and white comics goodness. Truly you can expect a little of every genre in here, as I have been lucky to talk to most of the contributors and have been the first to see the stories coming in. Here's a glimpse into just a few stories.

We have many other contributions coming in including a special piece by amazing indie artist JEFFERY BROWN!! All money raised will go to printing books for us to hand out, send to reviewers or donate to charity at conventions. The books will be sold for just above cost and all contributors are not expecting any profit from the book sales. This kickstarter will help us print more books, so bid on an incentive you like. The more you buy the more books we get to print(plus you get one for yourself). Even if we make our goal, the more we earn the more we print and the more we get to share our comics. To express the caring and generosity of our community for each book printed(at about $5-6 each to print) $1 will go to Extreme Recess- a Chicago based charity that helps kids with disabilities participate in outdoor activities visit http://dreamsforkids.org/programs/extreme-recess/

The book will debut at Summit city comic con in Fort wayne IN on 6-18-11 and all copies may be picked up there. Otherwise, When we are funded we will contact with to arrange shipping fee (estimated by the USPS to be $3-4 domestic)
