Update #4

Just one week left!

1 comment

Hi everyone -- well, there is one week left on the fundraising campaign for The Beast of Wolfe's Bay. Obviously, I more than exceeded my goals over the past few weeks, thanks to your awesome support, so I will have no problems printing and publishing the book. However, what should I be doing with my time, since I still have a week to go?

Well, a few days ago I had a comic signing at Roy's Comics & Games, our local comic shop, where I sold and signed copies of Gods of Asgard and generally promoted The Beast of Wolfe's Bay. Also, I am hoping to attend SpringCon in Minneapolis this weekend, to sell, sign, and promote. I have not received final word from them, however, so my involvement is still a bit up in the air. Thus far, this project has been listed on Nerdist.com, comicbooked.com, Kleefeld on Comics, and Comic Book Resources, as well as a few small, local newspapers.

I am plugging away at the production of the book, as well. I've been drawing, inking, coloring, lettering, and I have quite a bit of work done. I'm posting a fully lettered page here as proof -- it's not colored yet, so you get to see it "in progress!"

If you have friends who would like this book, please tell them about it! And if you're willing, I'd love it if you'd share this link on facebook, twitter, or whatever your social media of choice is. I'd really like to maximize this last week of the campaign as much as I can, so if you're up for it, I'd love all the help I can get spreading the word. Again, thank you all so much -- I am so excited to get this project out to the public!

    I will draw you into a full-color pinup, interacting with the Beast of Wolfe's Bay characters. You can fight Sasquatch, eat pie with the sheriff, or sit, bored, as Brian or Winifred lecture! Each pinup will go in the back of the book for everyone to see, but will not officially be part of the story itself. Plus, you'll get the PDF copy and print copy of the book, listed as a donor, and your name will also be on your page.

    FULL SPONSORSHIP: I can't imagine anyone will do this, but I figured I'd put it in here, just in case. If you're awesome enough to do this, you'll get your name listed all big in the front of the book, bigger than anyone else, with 'presents' under it. Plus, a full-color piece of commissioned artwork (your choice), plus the signed copy and PDF copy, of course.
