7 days Left !!! NEW Rewards! Stretch Goal! IPAD App!


I have teamed with the creators of Whamix! to build a great interactive iPad App for Daggers Drawn. This will feature, interviews, animations and original content in addition to 200 Kal cartoons.

Our good friends at Whamix has agreed to a limited time special discount price of $.99 for all Kickstarter backers if we can reach our stretch goal of $100,000.

To help reach this goal, I have added new reward levels including 6 books for the price of 5 ($125), a classroom of books: 25 Daggers Drawn for $500, plus new deals on original art that will be announced tomorrow.

And for the big spenders... I will fly anywhere in the world to address your group.

Thanks to the support of Kickstarter backers, this will be a great large format coffee table book. Normally you would expect to pay $40 for something like this, but our Kickstarter backers will be getting this for $25. So tell your friends to join the team!
