The Goon Kickstarter and Beyond w/ Eric Powell
Thursday, 7/18/13, 6:00p.m. - 7:00p.m., Room: 9

Back in November, legions of fans rallied together to raise over $400,000 to put together a story reel for the David Fincher-produced feature film based on Eric Powell's hit comic book series The Goon! Now, Kickstarter supporters and Comic-Con attendees alike will have a chance to catch an exclusive glimpse of this work in progress! Creator Eric Powell (@Goonguy) and film directors Tim Miller (@TheBlurStudio) and Jeff Fowler (@Fowltown) present an update on this crowdfunded full-length motion picture.

Great news, Goon Backers... the planets have aligned and the Goon High Command assembled last week to SIGN all your special edition POSTERS and PITCHBOOKS!!!

This means we'll be shipping out the NEXT WAVE of your physical rewards very soon! THANK YOU for your continued patience, we know you've been anxious to receive them. But we promise, it'll be WORTH it! We're also in the home stretch with the T-SHIRTS, so there'll be plenty of Goon Goodness coming your way!!!

To Quickly Clarify...

Posted by Blur Studio (Creator)

Yo Goon Backers!

As most of you are aware, we've sent out emails confirming some of your survey details. These are not summaries of your donation rewards. (so if you don't see anything about a poster, pitchbook, etc. listed, DON'T WORRY!) This email is ONLY to confirm shipping information for the comic book, t-shirt size/gender, and the production painting print selection. (IF your donation level qualifies)

Great news... the print editions of the exclusive Goon Kickstarter comic are done and will be shipping soon! They'll be shipping DIRECT from Dark Horse publishing so the shipment will NOT include your t-shirt, posters, etc. (if you ordered them) But never fear, we're hard at work on getting everything autographed by the Goon high council and we'll be fulfilling the rest of the kickstarter swag soon! Stay tuned!!

Here's a pic of the Kickstarter Exclusive comic... get those apocalypse-grade mylar comic book bags ready!!

Also, we're investigating the possibility of shipping them to you mounted/framed (for an additional charge, and only if you're interested) Here's a sneak peek at the poster proofs... they're looking great!
