$18,000-Stretch Goal

The current stretch goal is 18,000$'s. If we can reach that we'll do a limited run of hardcover books for the kickstarter and upgrade everyone that bought at least a book for free. Now there will be an opt out survey at the end if you really wanna softcover book. We'll have different cover art and all in all it'll be a solid book to own.

Ciao, I'm Yamino! I created the webcomic "Sister Claire" in 2008. Having recently completed its first story arc, "Sister Claire" is ready to become a printed comic book.

In the troubled aftermath of a great war between Witches and her fellow Nuns, novice Sister Claire just wants a purpose. Her prayers are answered when the beautiful blue businesswoman Gabrielle explodes from Claire's toilet and informs her she's pregnant with the new Messiah. As her simple black-and-white world gives way to a startling technicolor reality, Sister Claire realizes her "purpose" may put her in for more than she bargained for: a kaleidoscopic adventure to learn more about the Nuns' dubious crusade against the Witches and prevent history from repeating itself.


This first-ever eight chapter volume of "Sister Claire" will be printed in eye-popping artbook-quality color! That's over 200 pages of comic-y goodness, including updated artwork on older chapters, a redrawn and revamped Atlantis scene (now with 30% more mermaids), artist commentary, and a sneak preview at a future Sister Claire project!

The total cost of production and mailing for the book will be approximately $8,000. To inspire your generosity, check out some of our amazing donation incentives on the sidebar! You could get Kickstarter-exclusive "Sister Claire" merch, original artwork by yours truly, or art by some of your other favorite webcomic artists. You could even acquire some real concept art I drew back in the embryonic planning stages of Sister Claire!

For the $80 pledge incentive, you will get all the rewards at the $55 level, AND a pencil full-body sketch of any character of your choosing, in "Sister Claire" style. This is a rare chance to get a sketch from me outside a convention, and there are only five slots available, so act fast. =)

For the $100 pledge incentive, you will receive all the rewards at the $55 level, AND a full color character waist-up portrait of your choice, (digital copy and printed formats) in "Sister Claire" style.

For the $250 pledge incentive, you will receive all the rewards at the $55 level, ANDan original "Sister Claire" concept sketch!  Was Evil Cat always a cat? What would Claire look like in a spacesuit? I think I even have some pictures of Gabrielle in a bathtub lying around. You can get one of these sketch pages and own a piece of Sister Claire history! These are naturally very dear to me and each one is unique, so get 'em while they're hot!
