This Kickstarter is regarding the webcomic Spacetrawler.

Of note: All levels $9 and above will receive a PDF of Spacetrawler books #1-3!

I have added three “stretch goals“

20k – for everyone who supports at least at a $20 level, you will get a Dustin “chick tract” zine. Dustin “pens it post-spacetraveling” about what’s really out there (from his perspective) to the skeptics of earth.

25k – for everyone who supports at least at a $20 level, you will get a full-color “how to survive being shanghaied into space booklet” penned (and with pictures) from various members of the cast.

30k – I will extend creating Spacetrawler, by postponing the next project and doing an additional standalone Spacetrawler storyline, lasting 3 months/24 strips.

The Project: 

Spacetrawler is coming to close after a 3.5 year run of epic comedic sci-fi adventure. And with it comes the explosive conclusion, now to be collected in print form -- with your support.

There are many levels, but they can be broken down into these simple items:

1. Spacetrawler Book #3 (and books #1 and #2). ALL BOOKS will be SIGNED! :)

2. A PDF of the Spacetrawler strips

3. Certificate of being a crew member on the I.A. Star Banger.

4. A Commemorative Glass, for fondly recalling the web run (as well as to drink from)

5. Artwork, including original strips and the original drawing for the cover

6. Patron support portrait drawings.

This project has been really exciting and has really pushed me to create something exciting, thank you for coming along for the ride.

You can read all the strips on my webpage at http://spacetrawler.com

p.s.- The project goal is higher than book#2 because the book will be one-and-a-half the size of book#2, and which raised printing costs.

Risks and challenges

I will be doing all the prepress (this is the 22nd book I've self-published), and I have worked with this printer before and foresee no obstacles.

The KS goal is based on their quote and on shipping costs (estimated from my last KS). I am estimating that I'll have the books in November, which is why I'm saying December, but when working with printing a book, what with proofs and printing and shipping, you cannot always guarantee timetable.
