Update: Vol 2 bonus announced, Vol 3 bonus announced!

Welcome to the Kickstarter for the Orange Junk series (Volumes 1-4)!

  

When Louise's wealthy family loses everything, she has to pull herself up by her bootstraps and start over in a new high school - where the smartest boy is the meanest, and the hottest boy is the weirdest. But Louise needs tutoring, so the three become a team... It's a riches to rags school story with a whole lot of screaming. 

In the vein of Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun and Ouran High School Host Club, Orange Junk is a comedic love letter to shojo's ridiculous, beloved traditions. Originally one of the top comics on now-gone Inkblazers (MangaMagazine.net), Sparkler Monthly was excited to rescue the series and add it to our Female Gaze digital magazine! And now we can't imagine Sparkler without it.

Read it online right now at sparklermonthly.com!

 

We've already done a paperback of Volume 1, but Volumes 2 and beyond have only been digital ebooks so far. This Kickstarter is to print up Volume 2 and Volume 3, which are already complete - and if we hit our first Stretch Goal, we'll also print Volume 4, which will be complete in the near future!

Since some of you may be new to Orange Junk (and the series has never been on Kickstarter), you can choose ANY volumes in your reward tiers - including Volume 1, if you're not ready for the later volumes yet. You can even swap out some of the books for other Sparkler series! See tier details in the righthand column for more info. 

Fans both new and old, we have plenty of fun options for you!

 

This Kickstarter is also our chance to release new Orange Junk merchandise - a sticker sheet, a keychain, and a customizable dakimakura (sexy body pillow case)! :D You can even be drawn into the background of the comic! See details below and get yourself the Orange Junk prize pack of your dreams...even if it includes some of the boys posing in your bed. <3

 

 

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The majority of the funds will go toward printing the books and shipping them around the globe, as well as printing up the other rewards. Sparkler Monthly, the digital magazine that currently publishes Orange Junk in monthly installments, will be running this Kickstarter and ensuring that all rewards are prepared and shipped.

 

If we reach our initial goal of $8,000, we can print Volumes 2 and 3 - and if we hit our first Stretch Goal of $10,000, we can also print the upcoming Volume 4! Stretch Goals beyond that will unlock new prizes, including hilarious and adorable bonus comics Heldrad would love to do! Be sure to check back here for updates.

 

 

Risks and challenges

We at Sparkler Monthly/Chromatic Press have run six successful publishing Kickstarters in the past, and Lianne has managed more as a freelancer for Hiveworks Comics. Our reliable, enthusiastic staff has basically stayed the same for the last year. There are always risks when you're a small operation, but we're all ready to do this!

(If a backer is concerned at any point and isn't satisfied with updates here or at sparklermonthly.com, our editors can be contacted directly at editorial@chromaticpress.com.)
