Eternal Witchcraft — A Comics Spellbook
Eternal Witchcraft is a spellbook/anthology of witchy instructional comics for Crones and Aspiring Crones alike.
This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Sun, March 31 2019 2:26 PM UTC +00:00.
The goal of this Kickstarter is to fund and promote Eternal Witchcraft: a comics spellbook/anthology of witchy instructional comics for Crones and aspiring Crones alike.
Eternal Witchcraft features 21 up-and-coming creators, all crafting comics to bring a little more magic into your everyday life. This softcover book has 200+ pages of enchanting knowledge, both ancient and modern, all bound together in the flayed skin of our enemies (jk — it’s a beautiful and very much paper cover by Annie Lin, featuring sparkling gold foil accents!).
As any Crone can tell you: the best things in life are a little of what you know and a little of what you don’t; likewise, Eternal Witchcraft is part compilation, part fresh crone-tent. We’re collecting a few comics from our best-selling (and now out-of-print) Pocket Spellbooks, Charismatic Witchcraft and Sensible Witchcraft, and partnering them up with all-new comics in the ultimate grimoire for every witch, no matter where they are on their Maiden-Mother-Crone journey.

Our rewards include a charming (*wink* get it?? *wink*) mobile background version of our cover, as well as gold foil physical and digital copies of not only Eternal Witchcraft, but also our much-beloved anthology about friendship and found family, Group Chat!
But keep your aura sensitive to changes in the astral landscape because we'll be announcing new reward tiers as we get closer to our goal!
Here is our breakdown of Kickstarter expenses:
Paying Artists: In addition to paying a page rate of $50 for each new story in this book, we are providing contributors with 10 complimentary copies of the book for their own resale purposes. We are also paying a reprint fee for the stories we are including from our previous comics spellbooks.
Printing Physical Books: Roughly 25% of our budget goes into printing physical copies of the book, which includes the cost of the gold foil cover. However, this percentage may rise depending on the number of physical copies ordered through this Kickstarter.
Taxes and Fees: Just under 10% of the budget goes back into Kickstarter fees, state and federal taxes, and related purposes.
Shipping: Envelopes, mailers, postcards, and all the shipping costs of getting these books in the hands of our contributors and our backers.
We have one main stretch goal — every $2,000 we get over our initial goal results in an increase in pay for our contributors!
Thank you to the eternal crones who have bestowed this blessed knowledge of ancient magicks upon these comics nerds. Thank you to Gabe Alvarez for editing together our Kickstarter video. Also thank you to our dogs — we love you very much.
Risks and challenges
Because the book is done and the initial payment for creators is already secured, the only potential risk to getting rewards done on time is possible delays in printing. We’re printing through Sure Print & Design, a print shop based out of Toronto, Canada. We’ve printed with them before (on our latest run of Group Chat) and are extremely pleased to work with them again!
Other than that, we'll be shipping through USPS, and the normal risks through shipping apply. If you don't receive your reward within a reasonable time, we'll work to make sure you get this beautiful book into your hands as soon as possible!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
