UPDATE: You can now add Edmund Finney Volume 1 to your package, which will save you in shipping costs! follow the table below to see what you need to add to your pledge package:
The above figures are slightly higher for international, since the added weight adds slightly more to the cost, but it's a substantial discount from ordering both books separately.
Hi, I’m Dan Long, the guy who makes the comic strip Edmund Finney’s Quest to Find the Meaning of Life. Maybe you have just recently discovered the comic, or maybe you’ve been following along since it started online back in early 2009. Either way, if you are a living, breathing human who currently visits eqcomics.com from time to time (or may be inclined to start), you can have those comics and more right in your very hands if you have hands in the printed volumes! The first volume, The Strangeness of Strangers, is already available in my online store (if it's sold out when you go there, please send me an e-mail), or you can include in in your package (see above) to save on shipping. The second volume, Volume Two: The Stranger Things I've Seen, is an 8.5''x11'' book that will contain the following:
- More than 120 comics
- Lots of supplementary art
- A reader Q&A
- Even more, depending on your individual contribution — watch the video and see the sidebar to your right for details!
This campaign will collect pledges (book orders and more) to be able to cover the print and shipping costs to bring this to you!
International orders: Please see additional shipping charges listed with each reward. Sorry! Crossing oceans is apparently expensive.
What if the pledge goal is surpassed?
Fantastic! Pledges will remain open and I will continue collecting orders for a large release in July. There is no limit to the amount of orders during this campaign, so if you want a book (and/or more), then go pick a pledge/reward and be part of the Edmund Finney Volume 2 debut - you can even buy thousands of books and make a house out of them! Anything more than the minimum needed for the release will help with all things Edmund, and allow me to purchase new merchandise (and more existing merchandise) to stock the enhanced Edmund Finney store.
Why is this book release important?
It’s important to me that it is important to you. I treasured certain comic strip collections growing up, which formed my love for the craft that I have today (you can read about this in the first book), and to think that somebody else likes my work enough to keep it around their house is pretty much magical to me.
Here is a rundown of the rewards, which is further explained in the video:
Every book order gets a signed, limited edition print that you can see here!
The next level gets the book AND the new, MC Escher-inspired Edmund Finney poster, seen larger (but lo-res) here!
The next level gets a sketch of the character of your choice on the front page, like this!
Or hey, maybe you want both:
Now we get into the limited rewards: An original sketch of any Edmund Finney character of your choosing, like Farmer McGann below!
Oh dang, and look, for the next level, instead of a 5"x7" pen sketch of a character, you get an 8"x10" illustration of an Edmund Finney scene of your choosing in ink and marker! The limited edition print was done in this style, and you can have any scene you want done like that!
And at the highest level, you get to have the original drawing of one of the pieces of supplementary art that are included in this book. It's in the book, and you can own the original! (which piece you get will be randomly chosen).
ORDERS ARE ESTIMATED TO SHIP IN JULY! (Shipping may go into August, if I get thousands, millions, or trillions of customized orders).
There you go, let me know if you have any questions! And say hello on:
- (36 days)
