NEW REWARD LEVEL!!!
We have added a new reward level that will get you 3 separate EXCLUSIVE prints. The image below is a concept teaser of what you'll get. They will be 8.5 x 5.5 (the size of the comic) and full color. The reason they are separate is to allow you to display them however you like or frame them. Thanks for the support!!! Also, all $25 backers will get a set included with their pledges.
Hi, I just wanted to share some thanks for all the support so far, you guys are awesome! This isn't the end, though. The $500 bar was just a small goal for the page. The real goal is the amount backers. The $500's is fantastic and that will let me pay Vince for his work, but the whole purpose of this page was to get copies of the comic out to as many people as I possibly could. The comic is a short, and at $1-$5, I'd love to see a thousand people get a copy. What I want to see is the backer count continue to rise. We will produce as many copies as humanly possible, every one hand crafted and personalized. How awesome (and a bit scary) will it be to write a thousand different names and paint and sew a thousand different copies? Sharing a story I CREATED! I want to do this and your support by spreading the word helps! Thanks for all the early buzz, Kickstarter! In the first 3 days we were on the front page, listed as a staff pick and featured under the 'popular' sections of the site. I am glad people find this story interesting. Thanks again and tell your friends!
A Twelve Minute Revolution in Just Reading
Thanks for checking out our Kickstarter page! We came to Kickstarter for help with producing a standalone, custom version of our comic short, 'A Twelve Minute Revolution in Just Reading'. Vincent Tang and I, Darren Hupke, created this story and submitted it to be included in the comic anthology, 'The Great Unknown' by Small Batch Comics. The story was approved and is set to be released in August, but we also wanted to do something else with it. Without giving away the ending, we wanted to create a physical, standalone comic that, on it's own, helps tell the story.
To achieve this, we are printing and crafting this unique comic on our own. If successful, each copy of the comic that is produced will be printed on a hefty 110 lb card stock. Next, each page will be hand painted with red ink, then bound using a sewing machine. Not 1 copy will be alike. Each copy will be signed and numbered, plus all backers will have their copy personalized.
The $500 goal is the minimum target. With that, I will be able to pay Vince for his work on the art, the cost of supplies to produce it, as well as the costs to ship each copy.
Again, that is the MINIMUM. I would love to have hundreds of backers and be able to share this story with as many people as I can! The more backers we can get here would allow us to afford to produce copies for everyone pledging, above and beyond the $500 minimum goal. I hope you see something unique here and are able to support the project.
Thanks again for checking us out! Take a look at a preview of the art below as well as the reward levels. If you have any questions about the project, let us know!
