FIRST STRETCH GOAL HIT!

Wow guys! That was quick! Thank you so much! Now we get to work on making the best book possible! And to do that we've set up some Stretch goals to get more awesome content into this book! At each milestone we'll be adding these exclusives to the project.

REACHED! - $14,000 - set of 3 ARG buttons included in every order $15 and up!  

$17,500 - set of 3 postcards becomes a set of 5! For everyone that is getting the set of three postcards plus The Vas Deferens story will continue on in extra comics inside Volume 2!

$20,000 - 50 extra ARG comics are added to ARG! Volume 2! Everybody who ordered Volume 2 gets this!

$30,000 - "Aurora" my 24 page "24hour"  signed mini comic will be printed and included in all orders $20 and up! It'll inlcude extra art work and bonus commentary about this personal story of mine. 

$40,000 - A signed 48 page ARG! Artbook containing sketches and finished art from Andrew Gregoire will be included in all orders $20 and up!

What is "I Am ARG!" ?

ARG! is a semi-autobiographical geek humor comic about two nerds in love trying to come to terms with their impending adulthood. It runs the gamut from video games, relationships, babies, marriage, DnD, Star Trek, boobs, wiener jokes and every nerdy thing in between. Written and drawn by animator Andrew Gregoire, it updates every Monday, Wednesday and Friday and has been running non stop since 2011. ARG! is now read by tens of thousands of people worldwide and has seen huge praise all over the internet.  You can read the comic for free at www.IamARG.com .

What is this Kickstarter aboot, eh?

In mid 2012 we held a immensely successful crowdfunding campaign to print Volume 1. Just like before, this Kickstarter is to print the next 200 strips, from Feb 2012 on, into an 8"x8" 144+ page book filled to the brim with bonus commentary, extra comics not found online, artwork and much, much more! Also every strip that was in color online will be in color in the book! Great for all of you that aren't dogs!

Printing a book is quite expensive and we need your help to do this. We need to raise $10,000, which will cover all the printing costs, taxes, shipping costs, special tier reward costs, the Kickstarter fees and buy Andrew 1(one) large coffee.

Hey, What are these cool things you've got here?

We've got lots of cool extras to sweeten the deal on top of getting Volume 2! Every backer will get their named printed on a special thank you page and a receive a digital wallpaper of the cover art. On top of all that, we've got some great incentives, some of which will only be available exclusively through this Kickstarter! We're even offering Volume 1 on it's own or in a bundle with Volume 2!

NEW TIER UPDATE! Some of you have asked about a reward tier containing pdf's for both volumes of ARG! Well ask and ye shall recieve. I've just added "The Pdf'r" tier which will give you both volumes in pdf form for $10.

TIER UPDATE! "The Good Looker" $500 tier now also includes an 8.5"x11" Commission and an ARG strip of your very own! (strip and an 8.5"x11" print of it), that's already on top of a signed Artist Edition of Volume 2, Pdf of Volume 2, a fold out poster of the cover art, a set of 3 postcards, you'll star alongside Lynn or ARG (or both!) in a future strip and get a 8.5"x11" print of it, and you'll receive a Limited Edition ARG Flatcap! Embroidered with the ARG! Logo. Kickstarter won't let me update the tier info so I'm adding it here.

These versions of Volume 2 contain a personalized hand drawn inked sketch on the inside cover of any character you like from the ARG universe!

I've designed a set of three postcards featuring artwork of ARG and LYNN! Frame 'em, mail 'em, create an elaborate mouse trap. They're quite versatile. Here they are!

We've made the cover art for Volume 2 into a 12"x 18" fold out poster! Perfect for covering the start of a tunnel to your freedom from nosey wardens.

Andrew will digitally draw an 8.5"x11" piece of art just for you! You'll receive a hi-res digital file along with a print of it to frame.

Here's some examples of previous commissions Andrew has done!

Have you ever wanted to be in a comic strip? Now you can by contributing at the Guest Spot tier! You'll be along side ARG or LYNN (or both) in an ARG strip. You'll also receive an 8.5"x11" print of the comic shortly after it's posted on the site.

Got a comic Idea and want Andrew to draw it for you? Contribute to the An ARG strip of your very own tier and Andrew will draw your strip! You'll also receive an 8.5"x11" print of it once it's completed!

This is the First Artist Edition of ARG Volume 2. Not only do you get a personalized ink sketch on the inside cover, Andrew will be drawing all throughout the book, writing extra commentary and wiener doodles. This is the ultimate fan edition of Volume 2. There's only one of these available!  

Wanna chill with Lynn and Andrew for an hour and a half?  We can talk comics, video games, Dungeons and Dragons, give out  webcomic advice, share our wedding photos. Andrew promises he'll put on pants.

The most requested piece of merch is finally happening. In a limited run, we'll be producing grey flat caps embroidered with the ARG! logo so you can look just like ARG! Vacant soul sucking eyes not included.

An ARG Plush lovingly hand crocheted by Lynn. This is a VERY Limited item and we're only offering one due to the amount of time it takes to make one! We've worked out the kinks and finally got rid of that pesky murder mode that was giving the last one such trouble. 

Adding ARG! Volume 1 to your pledge!

I've been getting a lot of questions from backers that want to add a copy of "ARG! Volume 1" to their reward pledge. It's simple to do! Just add $20 ($15 for the book, $5 for shipping) to your pledge. If you want an Artist edition of "ARG! Volume 1", where I draw a ink sketch on the inside cover, just add $25 ($20 for book, $5 for shipping). Adding a second book to a reward package unfortunately increases the shipping costs significantly, but I've made it a flat rate of $5 for your convenience.

What if we go over the goal?

Wow. That would be awesome! I'm an optimist at heart and so we've got plenty of stretch goals planned for if that happens.

AT FUNDED! - a set of ARG Stickers in every order $15 and up!

$14,000 - set of 3 ARG buttons included in every order $15 and up! 
$17,500 - set of 3 postcards becomes a set of 5! For everyone that is getting the set of three postcards plus The Vas Deferens story will continue on in extra comics inside Volume 2! 
$20,000 - 50 extra ARG comics are added to ARG! Volume 2! Everybody who ordered Volume 2 gets this! 
$30,000 - "Aurora" my 24 page "24hour" signed mini comic will be printed and included in all orders $20 and up! It'll inlcued extra art work and bonus commentary about this personal story of mine. 
$40,000 - A signed 48 page ARG! Artbook containing sketches and finished art from Andrew Gregoire will be included in all orders $20 and up!

And there's even more planned but let's not get too ahead of ourselves just right yet.

Every dollar we raise over the goal will go back into making the comic better in some form or another. Whether it be more convention appearances, new equipment or software, coffee, new merch or any number of things. 

 Thank you so much for taking the time to consider being a part of this awesome book. With your help we can get this baby printed.

Risks and challenges

Andrew has successfully crowd funded a book before and has taken everything he learned from the previous one and has applied it here. The greatest risk to this Kickstarter is it not getting funded. Or the world running out of coffee...

We're aware after printing the first book and backing many other projects on Kickstarter that production delays can occur. No matter what happens we will keep you informed and up to date. Andrew's reputation as a creator is on the line. If you have any questions or concerns, Andrew is readily available through Twitter @IamARG, on the ARG Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/IamARG or through his Email at ARG{at}IamARG{dot}com.
