Help publish Order of Tales, a 700-page fantasy adventure comic!

My name is Evan Dahm; I live in Brooklyn, NY, and I draw and self-publish comics. Everything I do is published online, where it can be read for free at www.rice-boy.com.

This is my second Kickstarter! My first Kickstarter project funded the printing of 2,000 copies of my first big comic, Rice Boy. The books look great and people seem pleased with them!! What I'd like to do now is get 2,000 copies of my next big project printed. This comic is called Order of Tales; it's set in the same world as Rice Boy and is a huge, atmospheric adventure story following the last member of an ancient society of storytellers. Describing my work is always hard for me, so why don't you just have a look for yourself?

So far, Order of Tales has been printed only in short runs of three separate books, which have been difficult to keep consistently in print. My goal has been to get the entire thing printed in one enormous book, and with your help that can happen! Like the Rice Boy book, I plan to print two versions of the Order of Tales book: one paperback and one limited edition hardcover. Both will have the entire 744-page story, and a bunch of extra material. The video has more details on the design of the books, and some mockup drawings.

You can preorder the book so through this Kickstarter, so that it'll be sent to you in Spring 2012 when they're all received if we make goal. There are also a some other incentives! Thanks so much for your support, everybody!!

FAQ

  • The Rice Boy book's goal was $6,000-- I was planning to cover some of the cost of the print run (around $12,000) out of pocket. But it went way over goal and that turned out great! This run of the Order of Tales book is going to cost around $12,000, so I've set the goal to that this time!

  • If it goes over goal that means less money out of pocket for me to pay for shipping all of the books and incentives. If it goes far enough over goal that means I'll be saving money to reprint this book!

  • These books will be heavy, and will cost a lot to send anywhere outside of the US. Based on an estimate of how much they'll weigh, and based on the current cost of sending the Rice Boy book outside of the US (10 USD to Canada, around 20 USD everywhere else), the extra cost will be at least 18 USD to any international destination. I am sorry for the additional cost to international readers! But it's outside of my control.
