$5,500 STRETCH GOAL: UPGRADE TO HARDCOVER!

What the heck is FOR THE TITLE?!
FOR THE TITLE is an original daily web comic created by Lance Schibi and Austin Green. A new panel is posted every Monday through Friday and the ongoing story follows the adventures to bring Macho Ghost back to life. There's only one true thing that can bring Macho back to the living world: THE CHAMPION WISH! Macho Ghost looks to Warrior to battle the elusive Ho Kogan to win the title, and bring him back to flesh and blood!
So what's the goal here?
With over a year of panels & ridiculous story arcs, Lance and Austin are looking for help to get a printed edition of FOR THE TITLE to share with the world. The FOR THE TITLE: CHAMPION WISH EDITION will collect the first three volumes of the ongoing web series: CHAMPION WISH, THRASH CITY and GIANT MOUNTAIN. That's 104-pages of body-slamming, pile-driving, bone-crushing, neon FUN!
The book is DONE and ready for printing! Do you remember those old Garfield books as a kid? Well, the CHAMPION WISH EDITION will look just like that! It'll measure in at 5" x 10.5" inches and have 104 eye-popping color pages (two panels per page) for you to wrap you hands around. All Lance & Austin need are the funds to get the book off to the printer!

Risks and challenges
Lance has the majority of the artwork in hand and ready for shipping from all collaborators. We've left ample time for the artists to work directly with those who back at the custom art reward levels. The goal is to ship the book with all included rewards (except for larger pieces that require a shipping tube) so Lance will work directly with the backers and artists involved to make this doable before or by June.
We will keep everyone up-to-date if there are any delays or information which needs sharing during and/or after the funding campaign.
International shipping has been a thorn in some past kickstarter project's side so please ask any questions you may have if pledging from outside North America. Additional costs have been factored into each reward level to cover International shipping & handling costs.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
