I'm Kickstarting a new book!

7 likes

I'm super-excited to announce that I'm Kickstarting a new Evil Inc graphic novel! This is going to collect all of the Evil Inc comics that appeared on the site after the 2016 relaunch. Since this is the first book that was originally designed to be a book (as opposed to reformatted strips), I think it's the strongest of the ten Evil Inc books I've published thus far.

AND, for fans of the Evil Inc After Dark series, you'll see several NSFW rewards in this Kickstarter as well. For example, I'm offering a special, digital-only version of the new book that pairs the Evil Inc storylines with the corresponding After Dark stories and illustrations!

I think you're going to love it! We launched two days ago, and we're nearly at 50% funding... and that means, with a little luck, we'll be talking Stretch Goals soon. Stay 'tooned!

If you ordered an Artist EditionAND IF you wanted a SOFTCOVER copy of Evil Inc After Dark (instead of the hardcover) — please drop me a line at bradguigar@gmail.com

This only applies to people who want their Artist Edition in softcover.

In the interest of transparency, I'll go into the entire story at the end of this update...

So what's all this about Artist Editions and softcovers?

As you probably already know, I used Backerkit to handle add-ons and preorders for this Kickstarter campaign. And I love them! If you're considering doing a Kickstarter of your own, I can't recommend Backerkit strongly enough.

Backerkit also has a nifty system to help organize shipping. And it breaks everything down into packaging groups. So, for example, it groups all of the domestic shipments of all three books (EiAD, CDu, and the NSFW Commissions comic) into a single group. That way, you can prep the appropriate number of packages, print out all of your postage, and ship them off.

To make a long story short, I made a mistake in how I get up my internal reporting, and it resulting in everyone who ordered an Artist Edition getting an extra hardcover in their package group. Now, it would have been easy enough to override this and simply pack the boxes correctly no matter what the computer screen said... BUT this mistake also resulted in adding a extra 2 pounds to the package weight. For domestic orders, it was no big deal. But for one package group of international orders alone, it resulted in an extra $600 worth of unnecessary postage!

Now, Anna, over at Backerkit — who deserves a special place in the hearts of Evil Inc fans everywhere — was kind enough to single-handedly fix this on behalf of Your Favorite Cartoonist.

However, it resulted in assigning everyone who ordered an Artist Edition a hardcover.

Mind you, the number of people who both (a) bought an Artist Edition and (b) prefered the softcover is fairly small.

So instead of putting poor Ana through a nightmarish processes of undoing everything she did, creating a CSV file of survey responses, and then REdoing everything she did... I decided that it would be far easier to send word to you guys through an Update and address it thusly.

Shipping begins this week — and a note for people who used the Add-On option.

I'm finalizing inventory, and I will begin shipping books this week!

If you are so inclined to post photos of you and your new loot, please be sure to cc me on Twitter (@guigar) or tag the Evil Inc Henchpeople Facebook page so I can share them with the rest of the readers and backers! If you'd like to do so anonymously, consider a little creative cropping and then send the photo to bradguigar@gmail.com!

Add-ons

If you used the add-on option to get even more Good Stuff with your order, please note that your cards were charged today. (I held off as long as possible in case you wanted to make changes.) So please don't be surprised if you see a charge from me through Stripe on next month's statements!

Delivery is no longer nigh! It's post-nigh! Ex-nigh! Nighed!

What I'm trying to say is...

The books are here!

 After a quick inventory and storage-space re-organizing, I'll be getting these books in the mail as quickly as possible! THANK YOU for backing this project!

Delivery is nigh!

I've recently received word that the shipment both the Evil Inc After Dark books and the Courting Disaster books has arrived, and a trucking company has been hired to perform the last leg of the logistics, lugging this load of libidinous lore. They phoned earlier today to tell me that the shipment would be made either later today or sometime tomorrow.

The NSFW Commissions comic book has already been delivered, and it looks fantastic.

That means — barring any unforeseen circumstances — once I get these sexy stories safely stowed in storage, I can swiftly shift to shipping them straight to your stoops, stairs and sanctuaries.

Stay 'tooned.
