Thanks so much for supporting B9! We're super excited to announce that our art book series has returned to Kickstarter with a brand new set for 2016!
The 2016 B9 collection is now available on Kickstarter featuring new books by our brand new featured artists Meredith Gran and Dustin Harbin alongside first generation B9 artists Evan Dahm & Becky Dreistadt.
If you missed out on any of the other sets, we're offering those as part of package deals to so you can fill the gaps in your collection.
Your backing in previous years has allowed us to print thousands of art books at affordable prices, exposing huge numbers of new people to the fine art of comic artists. Thank you so much for your support and we hope you enjoy the new books, which are available for pre-order now!
We wanted to let everyone know we finally have all the Fall 2012 Prints up in our online store. So if there were any you missed out on you can get them now.
We also wanted to let you know that we are trying out a new type of project with Benign Kingdom - the Midnite Monsters.
It is our first set of books outside these seasonal collections and we'd love to do a lot more of these types of projects.
Capture Creatures is inspired by Ken Sugimori's feat of designing the original 151 Pokemon in a single year. Becky Dreistadt and Frank Gibson have created 151 unique creatures, relations, and descriptors.
the Exquisite Beast is a series of illustrations of a monster evolving traded between Yuko and Evan. All illustrations were done with ink and inkwash.
Midnite Surprise V2 is a collection of material from KC Green's art blog - midnitesurprise.tumblr.com this collection features a new collection of work featuring original illustrations, comics, and more.
As always, if you're a backer and you haven't received your rewards yet, please message us so we can look into it. Thanks!
Shipping completed for all orders by December 17, 2012. All packages were shipped with their full rewards.
If you are a domestic US backer and you have not received your reward, send us a message.
For international orders there is unfortunately no way to track where a package is, once it clears customs that's all we know. International packages can take anywhere from 6-8 weeks to arrive, so this means it could be as late as February that rewards reach everyone.
We have also slowly been working through a number of international backers that did not include the added cost of international shipping. We have been addressing them in order on an individual basis and are almost done with the list.
Once again thanks for backing the project and we hope you enjoy your rewards!
