Dear awesome ABC DISGUSTING backers,

Thank you SO MUCH for your support! We're in the last 41 hours of the campaign, and you've blown through our first three stretch goals!

You got us past $26,000, so now everyone who picks a physical reward gets a super-sized, 6"x9" sticker sheet of disgusting things drawn by Tak!

You got us past $28,000, so Tak, Jessica, Jane and I all posted videos of ourselves eating bananas with ketchup! Check 'em all out here: http://gregpak.com/greg-eats-banana-with-ketchup-for-the-abc-disgusting-kickstarter/ 

And we're now just $11 from $30,000, which will allow us to hook every backer up with an mp3 of an "ABC Disgusting" theme song to be written and recorded by the great Jane Lui! Check out this interview with Jane to find out what she's planning: http://gregpak.com/jane-luis-gross-plans-for-an-abc-disgusting-song/ 

And now, in our last hours, we're shooting for the moon...

...if we hit $40,000, Tak and I will make a WHOLE 'NOTHER BOOK with black and white illustrations and deliver it to everyone in digital form! Tonight we're thrilled to announce this new book will be KAIJU CLUBHOUSE, a chapter book that features the brother and sister from ABC DISGUSTING as they hunt for monsters -- and get the surprise of their lives!

Tak calls it "a book about the unexpected -- for both the kids and monsters!" Check out the preview art below, colored by the great Jessica Kholinne!

If ABC DISGUSTING hits $40,000 on Kickstarter, every backer will get the digital KAIJU CLUBHOUSE chapter book, written by Greg Pak with black-and-white illustrations by Tak Miyazawa!

Aaaand one more bit of news -- I've added a $175 "BREAKFAST WITH GREG AT THE NEW YORK COMICON" reward, which also includes the limited edition variant cover of the book! Feel free to upgrade if you're so inclined by clicking the blue "Manage" button on the right side of the Kickstarter page! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/gregpak/abc-disgusting/ 

Please do continue spreading the word about the book to your friends -- and THANK YOU SO MUCH for everything! Here's that link one more time:

Dear amazing ABC DISGUSTING backers!

You are the very best! Last night, just before midnight Eastern Time, you put us over our $24,000 Kickstarter goal! We are definitely making this repulsive book, thanks to your support! And now we're thrilled to share an eight page preview and announce our crazy stretch goals!

$26,000 - SUPER-STICKERS! If the funding hits this level, we'll supersize the stickers that come with all physical rewards, creating 6"x9" sticker sheets that feature multiple peel-off stickers of disgusting things drawn by Takeshi Miyazawa.

Preliminary pencils by Tak Miyazawa for a super-sized peel-off sticker sheet!

$30,000- THEME SONG! At this funding level, every backer will get an mp3 of an original "ABC Disgusting" theme song written and performed by the great singer-songwriter Jane Lui, whose incredible work can be viewed here: http://janelui.com and here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LnqRAvOaRyI

 $40,000 - ANOTHER BOOK! At this level, every backer will get a digital copy of a WHOLE 'NOTHER CHILDREN'S BOOK written by Greg and illustrated by Tak with glorious black-and-white art! Title and story to be revealed if and when we hit the $30,000 stretch goal.

$50,000 - GROSS! At this level, Greg will eat ketchup on cantaloupe -- and post a video to prove it.

$100,000 - SUPER-GROSS! At this level, Greg will make and drink (part of) a mayonnaise milkshake -- and post a video to prove it.

And now... the eight page preview! Artist Takeshi Miyazawa, colorist Jessica Kholinne, and letterer Simon Bowland have been hard at work at this for some time now -- hope you enjoy and please do feel free to share with your friends and family and send 'em to https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/gregpak/abc-disgusting/ to back the project!

Thanks so much for everything -- you're making our gross dreams come true and we appreciate it so much!

Other fun stuff... I've gotten a bunch of requests for Kickstarter advice recently, so last night I posted a list of 22 Kickstarter tips for anyone thinking of launching a crowdfunding project. You can check it out here: http://gregpak.com/greg-paks-kickstarter-primer/
