More fun reward levels have been added, including chances to appear in the book! See below this strip for the list.
Extra Bonus: For every $1,000 over-goal, I will do an additional half-page comic in addition to the regular strip!
Extra Extra Bonus: Any purchase or donation over $99 will be listed on the patron page as "Official Interplanet Amity Member," unless the purchase is for a higher level on the Patron page in which case you will be listed there. All purchases under $99 will be listed on the patron page as "Citizen of Dustinia," and you can raise that rank by donating additional amounts.
(additional money will go towards paying off the loans I took out for printing Spacetrawler book #1 and to the reprinting the Little Dee books, which are almost out of stock).
New levels? Yes, indeed!
Book 2 will now have a "Patron's page." If you donate or purchase $2 or more, your name will go in the back of Book 2. And there are many satisfying ways of doing this.
You can do this as a stand-alone donation, or tack it onto a pre-order (just add to your purchase the corresponding amount below). For the donation levels with limited numbers, do it the other way around and then email me what purchase you wanted.
Okay, here are the new levels in a nutshell:
$4 or higher - "Citizen of Dustinia"
$20 or higher - "Citizen of Earth"
$100 or higher - "Official Interplanet Amity Member"
$500 or higher - An original drawing of you in the IA Star Banger and listed as "IA Star Banger Support Crew"

Listed on Donor's page as "Norg-Forth's Dark Planet Revenge Brigade's leader." (limit 1)
About this campaign:
My name is Christopher Baldwin, and I'm a cartoonist. I've been drawing since I was kneee high to a grasshopper, and was first published in the reprint of TMNT Raphael microseries #1 when I was in 6th grade with a "pin-up" page. I began posting comics online in 1996 with my daily comic "Bruno" which ran for 11 years, and then followed that with my daily comic, "Little Dee." As well as doing side work as a contributor to MAD Magazine and various children's educational publications, I then began "Spacetrawler."
Spacetrawler is an epic comedic adventure story about a galactic activist group who recruits six humans to help them liberate a very put-upon species.
I'm raising funds to print Spacetrawler book 2. It will be awesome -- the feedback I've been receiving from readers is that I've hit my stride with it and it's an excellent book. ALL BOOKS WILL BE SIGNED! YAHOO! (unless you don't want them to be, in which case, let me know). I have the printer lined up, the cover designed, and will have the strips for it complete and posted online before the kickstarter campaign is completed. Please support his project. Thank you.
