---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What's going on with this project?

Brawl in the Family is a video game parody webcomic that will be wrapping up soon with a full 600 comics under its belt! It mostly centers on Nintendo characters such as Kirby, Mario, and Link; the humor ranges from lighthearted and fun to heavy and heartwarming, but it's generally family friendly (more or less a light PG), with no gore or cursing.

In 2013, BitF got its first book kickstarted, a high-quality, full-color tome of nearly 200 pages that came in paperback and hardcover. The campaign hit all of its stretch goals, which allowed for many lovely upgrades, such as higher quality paper, extra pages of brand new content, glossy foil for the hardcover, and more comics. Thanks to the amount of effort and bonus features packed in, the book ultimately ended up being very well-received by fans!

I'd like to make a full collection of strips happen with two more books, right now!

The goal of this Kickstarter is to put every one of the BitF comics into book form! Since the strip is ending very soon, this is really a now-or-never type thing, which is why Volume Two and Volume Three are being developed simultaneously. Why not just one large book? Well, as of right now--before any stretch goals are hit--the length of each volume is shaping up to be over 250 pages apiece; since the comics themselves are generally longer, panel-wise, than the ones featured in Volume One, there're a lot more pages devoted to them.

So basically, I want three volumes total of BitF...each containing 200 comics! But if you're not familiar with Volume One, rest assured that I'm aiming to make these books as enjoyable as possible to the reader. It's not just a comic compendium, but a super-packed, polished product that has plenty of bonus art and easy navigation.

 FEATURES:

Depending on how far this campaign goes, I'd love to have several new sections full of content to make this thing be the ultimate Brawl in the Family collection...

  • A full character section with new characters in each book. Complete with bios and extra doodles, etc.
  • A section for more of the promotional art displayed in the site's gallery
  • A several-page, full-color, brand new comic story/poem in the early part of each book if stretch goals are reached!
  • A section on the "lost strips"--ideas that I didn't use for various reasons, finally getting their chance to shine
  • Mouseover text included below all comics!
  • Extra care put into all the standard aspects of the book--Table of Contents, Index, Introduction, Special Thanks, etc--to make them as visually striking and interesting as possible. Here's an example of Volume One's Comic Directory:

VOLUME TWO'S COLLECTION OF STRIPS:

Volume Two will contain some of my all-time favorite BitF moments! It was at this point that the comic got pretty experimental and stretched its legs with what sort of ideas it could play around with. Highlights (in my eyes) include getting a look inside the bad guys' head in Dr. Wily's Blueprints, the circuitous, gratuitous, New Year, New Adventures, some silly Sonic shenanigans with Animals, and the massive 101-panel Princess Peach adventure, The Captive Princess.

Not only that, but this volume will feature no less than five story arcs, including the dramatic A Mushroom Kingdom Carol, the first appearances of Eario, and the massive flashback story, Cocoon Academy!

VOLUME THREE'S COLLECTION OF STRIPS:

Brawl in the Family: Volume Three contains comics roughly as large and in-depth as Volume Two's, with the final 200 strips to bring everything to a close. This collection has some of my favorite one-off gags, such as Ship Parts, the environment-swapping Holiday Vacation series, the intense Politcal Strife, the forbidden love story of The Secret, the cute adventures of Little Fox, and the absurd progression of Mounted Units.

In addition, there are five more story arcs in this book as well, including Kirby and Dedede's Sleepover, the villain switch going on in Divide By Hero, and of course, the final story arc of the entire series (still in production!)...

Longtime fans of Brawl in the Family may notice that this Kickstarter's goal is quite a bit higher than Volume One's...or at least, Volume One's initial goal. It's important to remember that initially, Volume One was going to only contain 150 comics (the first 150, which are also the smallest strips, panel-wise, in the series), would only be available in paperback, and would clock in at about 140 pages. This chart breaks it down pretty handily:

With completing the set, I had to make several difficult choices. Since ordering a smaller number of both paperback and hardcover is much pricier than just a bunch of one, I was tempted to do the latter. However, I know that there's a sizable audience out there both with Volume One's paperback, and Volume One's hardcover, and getting the rest of the series in either version only would be doing a disservice to those loyal fans.

Additionally, since I want to put the rest of the series in book form, having only 150 strips per book wasn't an option this time around; they automatically get the upgrade (UPGRAAADE!!) to 200 comics from the get-go.

And, of course, there are two books to make, each about 30% bigger than book one, meaning way more work and way more costs to manufacture and ship them.

The base goal for books 2 and 3 is $56,000--this is the smallest amount the campaign can get without me actually losing money by making the books (weirdly enough, it's nearly identical to book 1's final number)! But I really want to make this collection a reality; the books need to be of the same high quality as Volume One so that everyone is happy! So let's make it happen!

 Time for the fun stuff! First and foremost...Brawl in the Family: Volumes One, Two, and Three.

The books! See how the covers kind of complement each other?
The books! See how the covers kind of complement each other?

 Remember, you can get the books in affordable paperback or deluxe hardcover. You can also get them signed by me! Oh, this is Matthew speaking, by the way. The artist. I'm not sure if we ever fully established that.

Original drawings by me! No specific example here, but I will draw up to two video game characters of your choice, in full color.

The Special Thanks! A permanent part of everyone's books, with your name handwritten for all to see.

Digital versions of the books to view on your computer, in PDF form. Great if you aren't able to pledge on one of the higher tiers. This PDF is also a free bonus for all tiers that contain any volume.

And the piece de resistance...

 ...the elegant, case-bound slipcase! Built solid as heck, this sturdy container will keep your hardcover trilogy (sorry, paperbacks wouldn't fit right!) snuggly warm and lookin' classy as all get-out. All are hand-autographed as well--the ultimate way to keep things together!

Not sure what's what? Take a look at this rewards chart to figure out which goodies are for you!

LEVEL 1 COMPLETE! As of Thursday morning, Sep 4 (just two days after the beginning of the campaign), the Kickstarter has reached its goal. Now the books are coming to life and are ready to hit the town on an adventure for some upgrades!

Level 2: "Quality Boost" - 70k COMPLETE!

The first upgrade is one that'll really put the spit-shine on these comic collections. Every last one of the pages will be given a boost in quality to 80 lb paper instead of 70 lb. The hardcover books will contain a special, pricier type of binding that makes them far more sturdier (sewn-in like Volume One instead of glued, so that the pages don't fall out!). The hardcover will also get a foil BitF logo like Volume One's hardcover, a classy, shiny effect that helps them stand out. Finally, the inner covers will contain full original art inside instead of being blank. It's a level up in every sense of the word!

Level 3: "New Story/Poem" - 85k COMPLETE!

If this goal is hit, I'll whip up a brand new, 8-10 page storyline/poem that's in full color. This will be a prelude to the meat of the book, very similar to how Volume One featured "An Insatiable Appetite" with Kirby! In fact, here, take a look at one of the pages from that very story!

 Level 4: "Lost Comics" - 100k COMPLETE!

For one reason or another, there are plenty of comic ideas that don't make it onto the website. Many of them are even drawn out for a bit before I change my mind and yank 'em! So wouldn't it be nice for the world to see this never-before-released cut material? Consider this stretch goal the BitF equivalent of DVD "Deleted Scenes;" you'll get a decent number of lost comics to enjoy across several new pages! If this goal is hit, the lost comics will most likely be split between both Volumes Two and Three.

Level 5: "All MP3s for All Backers!" - 120k COMPLETE!

Music is a big part of Brawl in the Family--to date, there've been nearly 10 comics that have had an original soundtrack to them, many complete with lyrics. This upcoming benchmark gets you...the entire lot of 'em! Yes, every song from Ode to Minions to Plumber's Best Friend will be yours in a high-quality, better-sounding-than-YouTube digital MP3 package! And by "yours," I mean every one of the 850 (and growing) devoted backers of BitF: The Complete Collection. A future backers-only update will contain all the songs for your enjoyment if this goal is reached--the perfect companion to the books! And there might even be something new here...

Level 6: "Character Boost!" - 140k COMPLETE!

The BitF site contains a character section for all the main characters of the comic, and this has carried over to the books as well. The issue is that Volume One kinda took almost all the cast, didn't it? Only 6 characters remain for the other two books, and 3 per book is a pretty puny character selection! And what about guys like Snake, Sonic, or Dededoo, who've appeared in multiple strips but never got their own roster spot. Well, this upgrade gives that paltry section a much-needed boost for Volumes Two and Three, adding several new characters in each book to rival the beefiness of the first book's section, many of which haven't been featured on the site yet.

Level 7: "New Story/Poem! (Volume 3)" - 160k COMPLETE!

Volume Two just got its extra 8-10 page story/poem, so let's complete the trilogy with one more! While making two of these within the deadline is quite a bit of work, I'm certainly willing to make it happen if this beast of a Kickstarter keeps on growin'. This particular story--lining up with the theming of the three volumes--would most likely focus on Meta Knight, and perhaps Adeleine as well. While 160k is a high goal, I definitely think it's doable, and it'd be terrific to have all three books start off with one of these classy poems!

Level 8: "Vol. 1 Reprint + Storyline Art!" - 180k COMPLETE!

180k's reward isn't quite as "sexy" as some of these, but it is a highly useful and fairly expensive one to launch. From the beginning of this campaign, there's been quite a few of you concerned about the very limited number of Volume One hardcovers, and I had planned on shutting down certain tiers once we ran out. With this goal, I don't have to do that! Everyone who wants a Volume One hardcover (such as anyone ordering the full hardcover trilogy, which is a whole lot of ya) would now be able to get one without concern of the tiers running out! Since I'm not ordering many of these, the books themselves are quite a bit pricier to where I wouldn't be making a profit on them, but that's why we have stretch goals!

In addition to that, 180k will also guarantee full page cover art for all the remaining story arcs and several of the milestone comics as well (over a dozen full pages of original art total!).

Level 9: "QR Codes + Newcomer Art!" - 200k COMPLETE!

The 8th and final stretch goal of this Kickstarter is another double-header that several have been wondering about. On one hand, there's the issue of the video comics, which has a pretty neat little solution: QR codes! Yes, anyone with a smartphone (which actually doesn't include me, with my little flip-phone dealie) will be able to instantly pull up a musical comic's respective video by simply scanning the QR code next to that comic. We'll also include QR codes for the musical comics in Volume One (although those codes will be in Volume Two), and QR codes for any animated comics as well.

But that's not all! Since BitF is wrapping up right as the new Smash Bros comes out, and I don't want to spoil anything for fans who're avoiding the roster leaks, quite a few people have wondered "Where's Shulk?" Well, this final bonus will give a bonus page of original art in Volume Three, chock full of ALL the Newcomers in the new Smash Bros game! Together with the Brawl cast in Volume One, every Smash Bros character will be represented between the books in some way!

BONUS GOAL: "Behind-the-Scenes Gallery" - COMPLETE!

That's right--no goal amount required this time (this campaign has already done superbly so this one's a freebie). This final bonus is for a "Behind-the-Scenes" Gallery separate from the regular Gallery section (which will have plenty of art in its own right). The new section will contain never-before-seen pencil-and-paper drawings from one of my seven BitF sketchbooks, as well as even some Nintendo stuff I drew wayyyy before BitF. It's true--Little Matthew was a fanboy from the beginning!

Consider this last section my thanks to you guys for making this campaign such a success.

Risks and challenges

I aim to make these books match (if not exceed) the quality of Volume One, so that fans can have the best possible BitF product on their bookshelves. With Kickstarters, however, the possibility of complications is always there, so there might be unforeseeable circumstances may arise that might cause the book to arrive later than its estimated completion date. That said, I do feel that all of these goals--delivery date included--are very reasonable and I'll do my best to deliver the best quality product as quickly as possible.

There is a small chance--if the tier ends up being particularly popular--that Volume One hardcovers could run out after awhile. In the unlikely event that this happens, we'll be happy to give you a refund on the cost of that book. This might only be a problem if those items in particular end up being overwhelmingly popular through this Kickstarter.

    GOOD FRIENDS SET: A step up from the standard "Friends Set," this package grants you four books: two each of Volumes Two and Three. The difference is that TWO of these books are paperback, and TWO are hardcover (so, one of each type of Two and Three...got it?). So if you're a nice buddy, you can give your pal the paperbacks and they'll still be happy while you keep the hardcovers! Or if you're a really nice pal, do the opposite! Comes with PDFs of both books.
