Poorcraft is the ultimate comic book guide to living well on less. It covers everything from cooking to apartment-hunting, roommates to health care, boring Saturday nights to attending college debt-free. And it's available now from Iron Circus Comics!
Created by


703 backers pledged $13,606 to help bring this project to life.

Drumroll, please!


I've just returned from the delivery drop-off point- a storage facility down the road from my apartment- and the books are all present, accounted for, and looking AMAZING.

Diana arrives Friday, and we'll spend the WHOLE weekend signing books for Kickstarter supporters! Books will start shipping MONDAY!

If you missed the Kickstarter, your books will ship after the Kickstarter orders are fulfilled. You can order your very own copy of Poorcraft here!

We've still got lots to do, but this is it! We're in endgame, folks! Thank you for your support! And watch your mailboxes!

      Somehow, I can't seem to send you another private message, just wanted to say my copy arrived, thank you very much, all's good, awesome book.

      Hope everythinjg else gets sorted out soon as well.

      Hi, The post office just delivered an empty envelope that looks like it should have held my books. How can I get replacements? (I only really care about the autographed copy, not the other 3.) Thanks, -Jen

      Everybody should have DEFINITELY received their books by now. PM me so I can send a replacement!

      Still have yet to receice my print copy, wondering if there is a way to track it as well?

      Just wanted to check back in and say that mine showed up today. They are awesome and I am super glad to have them and now I gotta start distributing my extra copies

      Don't mean to be a poop, but I've not received my book yet, either. Glad to see I'm not the only one, makes me hopeful that it wasn't just lost in the mail.

      So it's now a full month after street date and I've been checking my mailbox daily and I'll be honest, I'm starting to grow concerned myself.

    8. Creator Tobias Reußwig on June 17, 2012

      Hm, it's been a month now and I do wonder about where my book may be...
      I did respond to the email about my change of address directly, but still, no book. Are they all sent yet?

    9. Creator Jerry Butler on June 16, 2012

      I haven't received my book yet either, hope it didn't get lost in the mail.

    10. Creator Jennifer Mathis on June 11, 2012

      Is there any kind of tracking available for the book mail-outs?

    11. Creator Axel on June 10, 2012

      I just got mine in the mail today :D

    12. Creator IronSpike on June 7, 2012

      Oh dear! I emailed out "how to claim your original art" info to the applicable backers April 20th, Sarah! Maybe it got caught in your spam filter? I'll PM you.

    13. Creator Sarah Chavis on June 7, 2012

      I backed at the $100 level and responded to the email, but haven't received a follow-up of any kind. If we're getting a page of original art, will it arrive with the books?

    14. Creator IronSpike on June 6, 2012

      The books are going out in chunks of 50 to 150 every night. We should finish early next week!

    15. Creator Stacie on June 6, 2012

      How long can we expect the shipping to take?

    16. Creator Amber Kay Bell on May 29, 2012

      I can't wait to get my 3 in the mail. :D

    17. Creator Axel on May 18, 2012

      Exciting! I've actually gone from a poor college student to an adequately-compensated support tech in between pledging (and Poorcraft was my first Kickstarter, even), but I enjoyed reading the PDF, and the tips easily apply to living on a decent salary while staying healthy and not wasting money. I can't wait to have it as a physical book I can grab and easily reference, or loan out to friends if they need it :)
