FINAL STRETCH! FANCY PANTS OR BUST! Also: SHOW TONIGHT IN NYC! And BONUS ROBOTS!
You guys. You guys. I mean, you guys.
A few hours ago, you nailed the $300,000 stretch goal, and now the trade paperbacks of the "Code Monkey Save World" graphic novel will be 104 PAGES and will include several pages of JOCO FUNNIES, newspaper-style comic strips inspired by Jonathan Coulton songs and drawn by the likes of Ruben Bolling, Adam Koford, David Rees, and Greg Pak!
Now we're in the FINAL 24 HOURS of the Kickstarter campaign. And it's all about MR. FANCY PANTS.
If we hit $325,000, we'll add a short "Mr. Fancy Pants" story to the trade paperback of "Code Monkey Save World." Who is this Mr. Fancy Pants, you ask? He's the main character of the classic Coulton song who wears his fancy pants in the Fancy Pants Parade and who's "gonna be the best. The best in terms of pants."
Speaking as a writer, let me assure you, THERE IS LIMITLESS DRAMA TO BE MINED FROM THIS CHARACTER.
So tell the world. Share the song. Point folks to codemonkeycomix.com and let's put this baby over the top!
Also, feel free to check out Greg on Twitter today - he's going to post a uncolored-pants-version of the Code Monkey image below and will retweet the fanciest coloring jobs y'all do on it. Wheee! twitter.com/gregpak
And that's not all!
BONUS "LOS ROBOS"
As Greg has been teasing on the Twitter, he's adding a BONUS to the "More Pak Comix" digital download bundle that's already been added to all pledges at the $50 level and above. Now if you pick a $50 pledge level or above, you'll also get a digital download of the 10 page "Los Robos" comic book story that Greg, artist Takeshi Miyazawa, and letterer Simon Bowland did for the "Shattered" Asian American Comics Anthology! And Jessica Kholinne is coloring the story, which was originally published only in black and white! See below for a glorious sample page.
We'll also include an extremely rare physical copy of the "Los Robos" comic signed by Greg with the $150 Pak Voicemail packs, the $160 Super Swag packs, and the $250 Super Secret Insider packs. Also please note that Greg will include three signed comics that he's written with the $150 Pak Voicemail pack as well as an original sketch based on a one-word description from you. Message us for more details!
REMINDER ON HOW TO ADD SWAG
There are already $50, $80 and $110 levels that let you add various combinations of the T-shirt, Challenge Coins, Big Poster, and Mug to your pledge -- and a tip of the hat to all of you who have taken advantage of those!
