Update 1- You are Hardcore
You guys are astonishing. I never could have imagined the campaign kicking so much tail, so fast. Within 24 hours of launch we demolished the goal- and less than a week later, seven stretch goals lay in glorious shambles. Thank you for making this happen!
Volume 4 is now assured a print run, and merchandise is being unlocked left and right. Every order we mail out will now include a free bookmark- and I'm getting to work on brand new art for the 5-pack. Also available to purchase with your order are posters, art prints, buttons, Troika zipper pulls & clothing patches, fridge magnets & stickers, and- just today- the hardcover sketchbook.
The next stretch goal, as you can see, will be our most challenging one yet- the resurrection of the 280-page Prelude collection hardcover books. But we're not even a quarter of the way into this campaign- and look what we've accomplished so far!
Together we can make it. Keep spreading the word- unlocking merchandise provides a fresh reason for folks to check out the campaign.
I'll get some marketing rolling from my end, maybe try to get on a few podcasts- but, actually, I need your help! I don't know of many podcasts. What do you listen to? Which ones should I approach? Let me know in the comments.
Last but not least- we've got a huge pile of voting fun ahead of us. You guys get to choose art prints to reprint, new button designs, and a fridge magnet design. Look for a fresh update with the first round of voting in the coming days! And be sure to check out the project FAQ's. We've had some really good questions come in, and some of them might be relevant to your reward choices.
Thank you again to everyone for being so stunningly supportive- and this campaign is just getting started!
