What is Marry Me?

Marry Me is a romantic comedy about a world-famous pop star, frustrated with her love life, who marries a random fan holding a MARRY ME sign at one of her concerts. It's a full color graphic novel created and written by Bobby Crosby and illustrated by Remy "Eisu" Mokhtar.  It began as a serialized webcomic (click here to read it all for FREE!), and was later published in printed softcover and hardcover editions.

What are you Kickstarting?

The sequel!  We want to produce an all-new full color graphic novel called Marry Me Vol. 2: Big Celebrity Wedding, which will tell the story of the day Stasia and Guy officially tied the knot with a formal, super-expensive celebrity wedding!  All your favorite Marry Me characters will be there to help the couple celebrate their big day, as they deal with tabloid spies, the insane egos of Stasia's superstar guests, and so many crazy surprises.  

Marry Me Vol. 2 begins with the short story "When Parker Met Guy" that is currently being serialized on the Marry Me webcomic site, and which will lead directly into the "Big Celebrity Wedding" story (both online and in the final printed graphic novel).  We estimate this entire graphic novel will be around 150 full color pages in length, and you will be able to see it progress page by page online with at least one new page every week!

How does this "Kickstarter" thing work, anyway?

See the top right corner of this page, where it says "$5,000 goal"?  We need that much money to produce our Big Celebrity Wedding graphic novel on a timely schedule. If the goal is reached thanks to your pledges, production on the graphic novel and all of the associated rewards begin immediately!  But if we don't meet our goal by the end of the 30 days, while we will all be very sad, you will not lose a penny.  You will not be charged unless the project reaches its $5,000 goal before the deadline!

What if we SURPASS the goal?

That would be when the SUPER FUN PART begins!  We've got a few awesome "stretch goals" in mind, but we're not counting our chickens before they're hatched, so we'll reveal them when/if the time is right!  

HOWEVER, we can say that once we hit our $5,000 goal, we will reveal AWESOME TOP SECRET NEWS exclusively to our Kickstarter backers!  Many people will surely find out about this news later, but you wonderful people will be the first to know!

UPDATE: ALL 13 STRETCH GOALS ACHIEVED! TWO NEW ADDED!
