We're in the Home Stretch!

You guys are doing a great job and we are closing in on the 35k stretch goal! We've heard you asking about what comes next. So we spent the weekend working out our plan for after our current stretch goal.

The next big goal is 55k. If we reach that, the Prequel books will be printed as Hard Cover! I know a lot of you have been asking for that and we finally worked it out. If this happens we will need to delay shipping until December or January for when the Prequel Books arrive.

We also came up with some fun rewards that everyone will get at each $5k increment between 35k and 55k. We really want to give back as much as we can to our backers to thank all you for your support. We have sets of stickers and postcards as well as a 8.5x11 poster. We also are giving everyone pledging $50 on up a chance to win a 4x6 piece of original art. If we get over 45k we will raffle off two pieces of art.

And we need your help to make this happen. Tell your friends, neighbors, local comic book store. And don't forget about our contests! You get a chance to win some cool prizes for spreading the word on facebook and twitter!

We want to make affordable Original Art available. We have a few new rewards levels where you can pick up some original art at an affordable price. We're also giving away a 4x6 painting to a randomly chosen back pledging $50 or more. If we raise 45k then we will give away an additional painting!

      Would love it if the poster was screen printed =)

      @Chris: Don't think so. I'm sure they've done the math, and 55k is where they can break even on bumping the prequel from softcover to hardcover, since they would need to print X amount of books (so far, we're at 128 backers getting Prequel books) to bring the cost down.

      Spreading! Spreading! Back this up! Btw, just a thought... what happens if the stretched goal of 55K can't be met, can we have the option to buy the pre-quel Hardcover instead? Come on! Let's do it!

      55k needs a lot more exposure though. Keep spreading the word people.

      Great! I don't mind the delay as long as we get a gorgeous hardcover prequel book! Also, just to confirm. All books will come with a bookmark (as mentioned before), and the new pledge is for a hand painted bookmark (basically an original art piece in miniature canvas), right? If so, how much to add a handpainted bookmark "a la carte", since I'm at the $85 level? That way I would be able to get the Stretch goal bookmark AND an extra hand painted boomark.
