The total cost of production and printing of the next 8 volumes of Misfile books (including domestic and international mailing) will be covered in the amount $20,000. The books will start at chapter 21 (where the print run from the last kickstarter left off) and continue through chapter 28.
Because we're over 20 books in and people have found it hard to keep up with each one, I'm combining each set of two chapters into one book each, so four total volumes of about 250 pages a piece (Volume one being books 21 and 22, Volume 2 being books 23 - 24, etc...)
The books used to come out every six months or so via print on demand, but we've found it's much easier to maintain our store and get orders out in a timely manner if we use a more traditional printer. This requires us to print our books in advance. However, it requires considerably more money up front to do this.
Misfile (www.misfile.com) is still going strong since the last print run, and we started a new comic (www.6gunmage.com) in the interim. The kids are getting older, and its time to get back to getting the books out to the public. To inspire your awesome generosity, we have a lot of donation incentives!

Risks and challenges
The challenge is to raise funds to print the next eight volumes of Misfile in four double volume books. We have moved from the older print on demand method and have found that printing them ahead of time and stocking them is a better model. To be able to print more volumes as the story moves ahead, we need the funds to get them printed. We know the fans want the next volumes, and the funding from this Kickstarter will allow us to catch up to the current story arc.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
