Eternal Witchcraft — A Comics Spellbook

$10,246

325

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.

ETERNAL WITCHCRAFT COVER: Annie Lin (floatingforest.studio, @floatingforeststudio)

ETERNAL WITCHCRAFT CONTRIBUTORS:

Grab these weird and wonderful rewards for your home & hearth when you support this project! Items offered in our reward tiers include (but are not limited to): 


Feline Familiar Charm

2" acrylic charm -- the golden parts have a spot gloss finish so they really shine! Charm designed by Annie Lin (also the artist behind our gorgeous cover).


Eternal Witchcraft Print & Digital Books 

Grab a digital copy of Eternal Witchcraft -- or get one included when you pick up a beautiful  print copy with gold foil accents!


 Eternal Witchcraft & Group Chat Bundles 

Get a special rate on physical and digital copies of not only Eternal Witchcraft, but also our much-beloved anthology about friendship and found family, Group Chat!


POMEpress Digital Archive

Check out our entire digital library of POMEtomes! This bundle includes digital copies of Eternal Witchcraft, Group Chat, Ukulele Spells, Crystalline Clover, and A POMEsgiving Cookbook. Learn more about our digital library in this backer update.


Limited Availability: Homemade Crystal Pendants 

Get a print and digital copy of Eternal Witchcraft plus a unique, beautiful wire-wrapped pendant, created just for you with love & gratitude by POMEmag editor & Head Crone in Charge CC, and equally lovingly picked out for you by the POMEmag Editorial Coven. 


Other Rewards: 

  • Bundled combos of the rewards above at special Kickstarter-exclusive rates
  • Wholesale discounts for retailers (and extra special deals for our local Austin, Texas shops!)

Our rewards each include a charming (*wink* get it?? *wink*) mobile background version of our cover.

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!
