      Count me in.
      If the project makes it to $60k then I pledge that Dean Trippe and Alex Bell will get Batman tattoos.

      Book upgrades are always nice. Onwards and upwards.

      @Jeff Troutman:

      Unfortunately, due to Kickstarter guidelines I am not able to promise that I will be doing that. You'll just have to guess whether or not that was my plan already. ;)

      Hmm, stretch goals. I can't say I need anything else; I'm just happy this is doing so well. Maybe increase the print run and donate copies to libraries or other orgs of Dean's choice?

      Would you consider making con appearances as stretch goals? Like whenever you get enough to justify taking off that time from work, paying for travel and hotel and food and whatnot, you get an artist's alley table at blankcon?

      I would personally love to see you at C2E2 or Wizard World sometime.

      @Lonnie Mann:

      I considered it, but I think that would take away from the specialness of the You'll Be Safe Here splash page. The new epilogue will include at least one color page.

      I'm glad this project is doing so well.

      I think the single spot color really complements the mood of the book.. but you could consider making a really high stretch goal the possibility of doing a full-color version of the comic? Might be unrealistic, due to the amount of work, but your full-color illustrations are so lovely and vibrant.

      @Alex Bell:

      DEAL. Anyone else want to join our pact?

      If you get to 60k, I'll get a batman tattoo too! Yay x

      If all crossover events were as awesome as this one has become and is becoming, I would actually buy them!
