We have big plans - and questions for our backers!
Thank you for your incredible support!
I was shocked (pleasantly!) at how many of you also want to see this book printed once again. As you can see, we have far exceeded our target, and we are now preparing to send the book off to the printer. In a couple of months new copies will be headed our way, and then out to you, along with whatever other rewards you selected!
If you haven't pledged yet, don't worry, you still have until Dec. 11 to get your copy, plus all the other deals on this page.
And if you chose an option that comes with extra manga, then remember you can make your selections anytime and send them to me in a message - I'll reserve your choices.
Thank to you, this isn't the end of Digital Manga on Kickstarter - and we'll have a really exciting announcement to make after this project ends!
In fact, I'd like to hear from you right now. How would you like future projects similar to Swallowing the Earth to be printed? Would you be willing to pay extra for larger-than-average manga pages? What about hardcover? Embossed? Crocheted? An after-reading mint in the back? The goal of this whole endeavor is to make manga the way YOU - the readers - want it, so let me know! Either message me through Kickstarter, or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
