The Canny Cthulhu Holmes: Weird Tentacles Volume 1

$1,228

46

Back again for the first time.

This whole project is to raise funds so that we can print (and then deliver to you lovely people) a hundred pages of Cthulhu Holmes goodness as drawn by the one and only Scott Hall (Rubba Teets). All money raised will go to printing single issues of The Case of the Bunny Man, The Case of the Crying Unicorn, The Mansion of Madness and Weird Tentacles: Vol. 1. All art is completed, so we just need you lovely people to help with the printing and cover your shipping.

It's the year of the squid, let's get weird.

IMPORTANT NOTE! If you would like to combine any of the rewards, message me for details or just combine the reward levels and make a note of it in your pledge.

 OG Monthly: Were you an early adopter and already have the first issue of Cthulhu Holmes? Then this reward is for you, it has everything you need and nothing you don't.

Wednesday Warrior: Are you just finding out about this whole Cthulhu Holmes thing? Well, we're glad to have you. And if you still like your comics floppy and disposable, then this is the reward you want. You get all three issues sent directly to you.

International Flavor: In an effort to offer a cost effective option to our international readers, this reward will get you a PDF copy of each of the single issues straight to your inbox.

Cthulhu Holmes: Weird Tentacles, Vol. 1: Don't have time (or space) for floppy singles? Then you're in luck! This book collects all of the above stories and contains special bonus material we left out of the issues.

 Big Fan: This is for our loyalest of fans. You get all three single issues as well as the trade. And the eternal thanks of two comic creators.

A Summoning: You get Weird Tentacles Vol. 1 and a page from the Necronomicon so that you, too, can be possessed by an Old One.

A Song: You get Weird Tentacles Vol. 1 and Joe will call you to sing you a song (of your choice)

A Painting: You get Weird Tentacles Vol. 1 and Joe will make you a one of a kind mixed media painting. This one won't be a portal to another dimension, though. Probably...

 Private Dick: For the completionist. You'll get the trade, all the comics, a limited edition "In Holmes We Trust" sticker, as well as a page from the Necronomicon. You'll even get a certificate recognizing you as a member of the Cthulhu Holmes Junior Detective Club. And the box itself may yet hold secrets...

 The Personal Touch: Joe will travel anywhere in the US to hand deliver your physical rewards. And, he'll even read the stories to you and a group of your friends. With voices!

 Stretch Goal #1: Full Color Weird Tentacles Vol. 1 - If $1,000 is raised everyone that has pledged for the collected Weird Tentacles will be upgraded to full color!

 Stretch Goal #2: All Comics in Color! - If $2,000 is raised, everyone that is getting any copy of the comics will receive them in full color (single issues and collected trade).

 Stretch Goal #3: ?????

Risks and challenges

We have successfully printed one issue already and have an established relationship with a reputable printer. The only risk is being too successful and having to send out thousands of books.

We're prepared to deal with that.
