About this project
New Comic Day The 5 Year Journey is a collection of the first 5 years of the award winning webcomic!
For 5 years now we've been posting New Comic Day every wednesday over on Newcomicday.net and Comicrelated.com and when the 5th anniversary hit we wanted to do something big. We've been planning this hardcover for a while now and wanted to bring it directly to kickstarter to bring it to life.
Over 275 strips have been produced by 3 different artists during the 5 years of the project.(We even had Phil Hester help us with our April fools strip back in year 1)
The hardcover itself is 152 full color pages, filled with 5 years worth of New Comic Day strips, a forward by Hack/Slash creator Tim Seeley, a cover gallery and a 2 page back up origin story for Minion.
We will also have the option to buy the first volume of the New Comic Day comic, which is 48 full pages of content with no adds and full annotations of our creative process.
Some examples of what you can expect from the hardcover:
New Comic Day truly has it all. And all these adventures plus 265 other strips can be yours if you support the project! It's absolutely our goal to make this the best hardcover you could possibly imagine and our goal is to order 500 copies for a first print run.
During the run of the project I'll be updating a few times a week with previews of art that will be found in the book, the t-shirt art and more!
WHERE DOES ALL THE MONEY GO:
All money raised on the project is focused on making the hardcover book the best it can possibly be as well as fulfilling all incentives on the project from prints to the individual comic volumes depending on pledge level.
We plan on ordering 500 copies of the Hardcover to start with but that number could change depending on how many people we have pledge of course.
5,000 goes towards creating the hardcover book with a slipcase and shipping and handling (the book itself is about 4,500 and the shipping and handling is almost 500)
The shirts are between 300 and 400 dollars to print.
Copies of New Comic Day volume 1 will run about 200 dollars
And then prints of the individual strips as well as shipping and handling costs to send everything out cover the rest of the costs. (As well as the 10 percent that Kickstarter/credit cards take)

Risks and challenges
The most obvious one is this; if we don’t reach our goal the book doesn’t get made. Obviously your card wouldn’t be charged and that would be it.
There’s also the possibility of shipping delays. The printer we’ve chosen does their printing overseas so there’s the possibility of the delay in arrival.
Other than those 2 specific risks and challenges, there aren’t any others. Brant has already started working on the layouts for the individual volumes as well as the books so we’re expecting to have the book to you guys as soon as possible.
