      Thank you all so much! The official 'thank you' is in the works, but I just wanted to digitally kiss the hands of everyone who got this campaign over the finish line. You're all super boss. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

      I was just wondering if the prints are going to be signed/numbered in any way? That would be pretty cool :)

      Hello Pierre! Great question. A little extra for overseas shipping costs would be a good idea. That was something I forgot to consider when putting the backer levels together. Thanks so much for thinking of it!

      Hi Noah, just wondering if you need us oversea fans to pledge more for shipping costs ? I don't want anything bad to happen to those prints... :-) so don't mind paying a bit 'extra' for some 'extra-strong' package ! Hope this last week end gets you a new wave of backers !
      Best wishes :-D

      Congratulations on reching your funding goal with still ten days to go! I love the adventure/comedy kind of comics, and I am really hyped about your great art and style. Proud to be backer! :-D

      My toddler wanted to immediately see more dinosaurs _and_ robots when he saw the main image on this project's home page. I'm excited to eventually read the book together!

      Great Project! It's also great to discover a kickstarter project from Moscow, Idaho, one of the coolest places in the United States (yes, I've actually been there)

      Hi Ria,
      Eventually, everyone's going to have an opportunity to buy the book (though I'm not exactly sure when that will be). But I wanted to offer people who contributed to this campaign rewards that would never be available again. Cool stuff JUST for Kickstarter contributors. Thanks for pitching in!

      Hmm seems weird that you can only get a copy of the final book by paying $500? It's cool to be able to get the art and everything - and i realise the book could take a while to be made, but that's what kick starter is about.
      Every other project I've backed/wanted to back is because I've want the final product - even if it's a long time coming.
      Would be cool if there was an option to buy the book with a note that it might take yeeeeeears - I'd still pledge to that. :)

      "My art has always been commended as being strongly..." Well, er, anyway, your art is nothing like that! :) We're very excited to see the finished product. Way to go, dude!

      This looks like a fun book that my 8 year old son will love. And, absolutely loved the Star Wars references in your video. :-) Good luck!

    The above rewards AND a great digital version of one of my favorite illustrations from the book. It's one of several background "photographs" (this is in quotes because the "photographs" are illustrations, not actual photos) that help characterize India (she's attempting science in a Boris Karloff sort of way). Only part of it's visible in the book, so you get to see all of it with this reward.

    Everything above AND a high quality print of the science experiment illustration. It's around 5" x 7" and has great color and detail.

    This one gets you every reward before this one AND a high quality print of a third illustration featuring India as a mummy cursing Howard Carter. That's three awesome prints of original artwork that's never been available before.

    Every previous reward AND a high quality print of a fourth illustration in which India is playing "French Revolution". This illustration wasn't included in the book because of space constraints, which means ONLY KICKSTARTER PEEPS GET THIS REWARD!!!

    Everything you've read in the rewards section up until this one (assuming you've read from the top down) AND high quality prints of ALL the photos. There's one with pirates and one inspired by "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea". The latter is one of my favorite illustrations I've ever done and is intensely fun. So, just to recap, this reward gets you SIX awesome prints of artwork that I promise you can't get elsewhere.

    All of the above swag AND a high quality print of the completed page of the story in which they're featured. This is an 11" x 17" page with beautiful color and detail and one of the best pages in the book.

    8 backers All gone!

    Every preceding reward AND a high quality print of an additional page from the book AND a high quality print of the layout sketch of that page. None of these pages have been released and I never give away sketches, which means there's more crazy stuff in this reward than in Mos Eisley Spaceport! You'll also receive a finished book once it's finally finished.

    Every reward here. Let's review what this means: A full set of digital artwork, a full set of "photograph" illustration prints (six total), TWO full 11" x 17" prints of completed pages from the book and the layout sketch of one of them, a book of character concepts, sketches and notes with a personal thank you from me, and a completed copy of the book when it's ready. But at this level, I want to give you something special. There's an illustration in the book. It's a two page spread (which makes it 11" x 34"). Very few people have seen it. It's the most ambitious, imaginative, fun illustration I've ever done. It has medieval characters and objects. It has futuristic gadgets. It has robots. It has a samurai. It is epic. I think it took me six months or more to finish. And I will make three extremely nice prints, sign and date them, and send you one in some kind of adamantium shipping container. It may or may not be handcuffed to the delivery man's wrist.
