Update 1: w000T! INITIAL GOAL MET! THANKS ALL! Check out the Swag Pirate graphic below for info on stretch goals! Also I added a section where you can customize your reward!

What is Mystic Revolution?

Mystic Revolution is a bi-weekly, full color webcomic about the adventures of an eccentric group of characters in the massively multiplayer online game world of Mystic Revolution. Since its beginning in 2004, Mystic Rev has followed the journey of ex-admin and raging pyromaniac Lourdes and her not-so-l33t ninja cohort as they adventure through life, levels, and lots of alcohol! You can read all 700+ pages online at Mysticrev.com and see new pages every Monday and Friday.

What are you Kickstarting?

This is a quest to raise funds to publish Mystic Revolution Volume 4, a full color, 200 page graphic novel collecting chapters 22-26. The goal represents the absolute minimum we need to print the book, with whatever we make above and beyond said goal going towards recouping the costs to reprint and update Mystic Revolution Book 1. Though the adventure may be dark and wrought with perils, with a group of stalwart fighters like yourselves I'm certain we can beat this boss of a goal in no time!

What's in it for me?

Naturally a quest would not be complete without some super rad loot drops, and boy do I have some really awesome rewards planned! Aside from the basic book tiers, I'm also offering sketch card commissions, a special backer-only thank you page with backer created characters in cute chibi form appearing on all the books, and more! I'll also be updating the reward tiers with new stuff as the kickstarter progresses, so make sure to come back often and see if that NPC has anything new to say.

Customizing your reward!

Want something extra that's not included in your specific tier? Like extra books for friends or additional digital copies? Customize your reward! But make sure you message me with what additions you want otherwise I won't have any way of knowing if you're just contributing extra.

  • Book 1: please add $10
  • Old Book 1: please add $10 (VERY IMPORTANT that you note me so I can change the limit on the Early l33t level)
  • Book 2: please add $18
  • Book 3 or 4: please add $20
  • Sketchcard Commission: please add $25

Any other requests just let me know and we can figure something out!

Risks and challenges

Book 4 is pretty much ready to go to the printer aside from the content that'll be made for the backer thank you pages. Having printed 3 volumes of books already multiple times, I'm pretty used to the printing process and how long everything takes just about. The only really hard part will be assembling everything together to be shipped out, but with the help of loyal friends/volunteers/minions/slaves we'll bust them out in no time!
