As of yesterday, all donor rewards of $15 dollars or above will be receiving HARDCOVER editions of the book.
Thank you all so much for the outpouring of support for this project, to put my autobiographical comic, Something Terrible, into print. I am so happy to be able to offer this additional value for all physical orders, and because we reached it, I want to make this print edition even more special. So:
SECOND STRETCH GOAL: $36,000
If we reach the second stretch goal, SEVERAL things will happen:
1. The print edition will include a new four-page epilogue, about my life since making Something Terrible public last fall. I've been working on a couple of new pages, but I have an idea that'd work better at four to five, so if we hit this goal, I'll go ahead and expand it to at least four. Believe me, if you've been a part of sharing this story, you'll want this to be a part of the book.
2. I will be able to hire Hannah Nance Partlow to design the physical edition of Something Terrible. I don't know if you know about book design, but there are a lot of elements that require careful thinking, and Hannah is absolutely brilliant at it. You may recognize her name from the digital edition. She designed the hand-made text logo for Something Terrible, perfectly complementing the cover illustration. This edition will look more beautiful, more professional, and more wonderful with Hannah on board.
3. Every physical edition donor level, from $15 and up will receive a free color print of the cover, suitable for framing alongside the small "You'll Be Safe Here" print already included at some donor levels.
Okay, so those are all the things I've wanted to do, and having this additional funding will make them all super doable. I really don't know what I'll be able to offer next, if we hit this goal. At 60K I'll get bat tattoos on my forearms? You'll be able to enjoy those forever, just like me, right?
Thank you so much for pushing this campaign so far above the initial goal. I'm completely overwhelmed and with less than three weeks to go, I'm getting incredibly pumped to place this order and get these much more impressive editions rolling out. Thanks so much for sharing my story with others, and for sharing your stories with me.
I feel like we're all in a massive crossover event, and it all turns out rad. Secret Inner Wars: Crises Averted in Infinite Lives.
