Update #2

2 days left


hey all. so, looks like it's almost over.

pretty excited to get going on the book, and am going to attempt to get it printed and out...very quickly. in the next couple months, if possible.

i'm going to do one final push on the Kickstarter. i made my goal (well, YOU did, actually), and that is flat-out awesome. 

but (and here's where my midwestern guilt kicks in) every bit counts; anything above and beyond is extremely helpful. there's 3 things i'd love to do beyond the production cost goal: upgrade the book itself (french folds on the cover, which is almost $800 extra), hire some outside promotion for this first volume so i can get back to DRAWING the next issue, and maybe pay the printer a little for the job (the printer being, of course, me; it'll be at LEAST 40 hours on the press, knowing my speed). 

in 50some hours i'll know which/ how much of that stuff i can do.

but make no mistake: the $ you kicked in is going to allow me to get this book done, and i truly appreciate it.

in any case, if there's anyone you think might be into this that hasn't seen/ heard about it yet, let em know.

again, my thanks to all of you, and

my best
