"Instant" Incentive until April 9th at 9am CST!

Dear DInosaur creator Ryan Schrodt is a die-hard Vancouver Canucks fan and tonight they won their second straight President's Trophy! To celebrate, Ryan is offering an "instant" incentive that is only good until Monday April 9th at 9am CST.  For all new backers, if you give $15 or more by Monday morning, you will receive your regular reward AND a 2-character sketch with any characters of your choice!!!

61% Funded!

I just wanted to send a quick thank you to everyone that has backed Dear Dinosaur! We are currently at 61% funded and well on our way to being completely funded!  If you know anyone that might be interested in backing the project and earning some cool rewards, please let them know!  The more money we raise, the more I'll be able to promote the book at various conventions in the midwest.

I am pleased to inform everyone that I have filled the last open spot for pin-up artists with the super awesome Tara Coble.  Tara had the table next to me at Wizard World Chicago last year and was popular all weekend thanks to her versatility as an artist.  She should bring something really special to the book!

Finally, here is a sneak peek at the special convention variant cover for Dear Dinosaur, drawn by me! It is an homage to Uncanny X-Men #141 and features all of the "questioners" from the volume, plus a few surprise guests.  Enjoy!


New Limited Reward Available!

This is probably my favorite reward that is available at the moment.  If you give $20, you will receive both the regular Dear Dinosaur Vol 1 plus the exclusive variant AND as an added bonus, you will be drawn into the variant cover!

The variant is a homage to Uncanny X-Men #141 ("Days of Future Past") and features a slew of characters from the strip on wanted posters, plus three lucky backers!

Great first week!

Greetings! The first week of the Kickstarter campaign for Dear Dinosaur is not yet over and yet we are already funded up to 35%! Thank you so much to everyone that has supported the project thus far!

I am pleased to announce that one of my favorite artists, my good friend Steve Bryant, has agreed to provide the standard cover for the collection!  Steve is the creator of the amazing Athena Voltaire and is one of the hardest working creators in comics.  You can check out his site here:
