Bad Karma Summit in Kansas City

1 comment
4 likes

This past weekend, the members of Bad Karma assembled in Kansas City for a planning session covering all things Bad Karma, including the forthcoming BAD KARMA VOLUME TWO.

The plan for the second book is to have more material finished prior to the Kickstarter campaign, in order to give you a better idea of what we're offering. Hopefully those of you who enjoyed the first book will climb on board for the second, and help us spread the word when the time comes. BAD KARMA has been an extremely gratifying experience largely due to the enthusiastic support of our backers, who are true partners in this venture. 

It won't be long until we reveal some future plans (comic book plans, and plans in other media) for concepts introduced in BKVO, as well as information about what's to come. We're also investigating alternative methods of distribution for the first book. As of now, the next time the four of us will be assembled at a convention would be Planet Comicon in Kansas City next March.

------------

* And while we have your attention, we'd like to direct you to a worthwhile Kickstarter campaign created by some of our pals from north of the border: TRUE PATRIOT VOL. 2. The talent in Canada is staggering, folks: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/578037098/true-patriot-volume-2?ref=live

Our good friend and Bad Karma artist, Andrew MacLean, is nearing the end of his own Kickstarter project--Head Lopper 2: The Wolves of Barra.  Andrew is an amazing creator and Head Lopper is the kind of insane heavy metal inspired goodness we need more of in comics.  Please do us a favor- check out his project and consider joining us in supporting him.

It's time for the official release of Bad Karma, Volume One!  NYCC is this week and Bad Karma will be there with lots of books, tees, and extras.  We will have a few of those gorgeous Mark Englert prints--

We also have two items exclusive to NYCC--

First, we have a special limited shirt with the 60's Kraken logo, in a fun pop of color.  We are offering these special shirts to you, our backers, during NYCC.  If you are interested in getting one of these exclusive shirts shipped to you, they are $20 plus $5 shipping.  Just drop us a line for more details no later than Sunday, Oct. 13th. 

We also have a print by Andrew MacLean that is a sneak peek at Bad Karma Vol. 2. 

Volume Two?  That's right, Volume Two is getting fleshed out and will be going live on Kickstarter early next year.

If you want to hear more about Bad Karma and upcoming plans, how Kickstarter works, or just meet the guys that created this masterpiece--and you are going to New York Comic Con, be sure to get to the panel on Thursday, Oct 10th at 4:15.  We are going to have some fun freebies and exclusives for those attending the panel.  If you aren't going to be able to make it in person, be sure to check out the audio version on wordballoon.com.   

As always, thanks for your support!

Almost finished shipping....and Bad Karma will be on the East Coast this weekend!

Hi All!  Hope this finds you all well.  

If you haven't received your package yet, there are still a few international packages we have not shipped.  We also have a few domestic packages that are waiting on back-ordered t-shirts...we are expecting to have those within the week.  For those of you this applies to, thanks for your patience!  

For anyone in the East Coast area, Jeremy will be at Granite State Con in Manchester this weekend.  We will have a limited amount of Bad Karma books and tees with us.  Come by and say hi! 

As always, thanks for your support!


Update #27

Progess...upcoming shows....and special print available!

Hi all! 

Thank you so much for your patience as the shipping process has been slower than anticipated.  We are hitting the pile hard this weekend so the bulk of the rest should go out first of next week.  We are shipping most packages via media mail so they take 3-10 days to arrive, and longer on international.  Once you get your book, etc. let us know what you think.  Please tweet, facebook, or otherwise share your thoughts and comments--we'd love the feedback! 

Jeremy will be at several shows over the next few weeks with Bad Karma books, tees, prints, etc.  Next weekend is the Cincy show.  Here's the link for more info--

The weekend of September 21-22-look for Jeremy on the west coast in Portland, Oregon.

The last weekend of September, Jeremy will be in Manchester, New Hampshire at Granite State Con.

If you are at any of these shows, be sure to stop by and say hi--we'd love to meet you!  

And of course, in October, the New York Comic Con is going to be the official Bad Karma release.  All four creators will be in attendance with lots of books, a special edition tee, and prints.  There is a Bad Karma panel scheduled for Thursday afternoon with John Siuntres moderating.  It's going to be great!

The last thing to mention today is that we have a very limited number of Mark Englert prints available.  These prints are of the fold out center image in the Bad Karma book.  This beautiful art piece is a five color hand pulled print of approximately 12x36".  These are a limited edition (only 100) print that we debuted at the Charlotte Convention in June and we have a few left.  The prints are $50 plus shipping.  The images show the overall print and a detail of the center section.  Message us if you need more details.
