Stretch Goals and Backer Bonuses!
As a thank you gift for helping us make it this far. We’ll be sending everyone who backs the campaign a digital layout for a do-it-yourself paper doll of Jemma in her blur suit. It’s our bonus to all backers.
Next up is Jemma’s partner in crime, the man behind the scenes, everyone’s favourite fence: Knox. He’ll be a paper doll too same as Jemma. He unlocks once we pass the 8,500$ mark.
At the 9,000$ mark we’re releasing both Detective Cliff Noble and party dress Jemma.
When we Hit 9,500$ we will make the hard cover edition of the book available to order. People who back at the “Getting Some of Your Own”, “Some of Your Own Colour”, “ROLL FOR INITIATIVE! w/Conceptual Heist”, “Join The Heist in Book 1” (Man I hate that typo, it should be Book 2), and the “The Big Deal” (Now limited to only 50 slots available) will automatically be upgraded for the hard cover if we hit that goal. We’ll only be printing 100 of the hard covers so they’ll be very rare, backing those levels are your best chance to make sure you get them without having to wait to see if the level will unlock.

What Do Other People Think?
“Sometimes a comic project is too original and has such a unique look that we need to get it out there. Conceptual Heist is exactly that type of indie webcomic.”
-Dave Michaels expertcomics.com
“…A 1920’s flapper vibe that is a perfect visual language to talk about the hyper-rich. His characters’ acting and body language is great, and the sci-fi setting never gets in the way of the action, it’s just the nano-particle-charged air they breathe.”
-Patrick Goddard, -graphicpolicy.com
"Conceptual Heist is a comic adventure featuring all the best things: fine art references and art-nouveau style, sci-fi and cool technology, AND super cool characters like a female James Bond and a Q that is reminiscent of Jimmy Hendrix."
-Laurence Dea Dionne, creator of Zen and the Ephemeral and Nuances.
Who Are We? We're the Creators...
"I love comics because of the possibilities. From nothing, we can make anything. And that can be scary, but it can also be interesting. Conceptual Heist is this scary, interesting thing we made one page at a time. And I love it." . -Matt G. Gagnon
"Writing comics means only half the job is done. Handing a project off to a collaborator starts this amazing period where you are wondering what will come back to you, will it be what you imagined? Better? Conceptual Heist keeps coming back to me better and better."
Why are we making this comic?
Conceptual Heist will always be the book that started us off on our careers. No matter what size, Jemma's story will always be where we had people come and join us on this ride. Where we realized it’s doable, that we can actually make comics. Since launching the series we've gone from 2 guys sitting together in a dead end job talking about new Image titles and the comics we loved, to actually making comics. Now we're here to bring you our book in the format those two guys testing video games and talking comics always dreamed of.
We've come to Kickstarter to fund the colouring and print run of 500 copies of CONCEPTUAL HEIST Book 1.
During the run of the webcomic we've made sure to deliver the comic to our readers on a regular basis. That means the writing and line art is 100% complete. Now we're looking to pay our colourist, and get the book to as many readers as possible. And we'd love to have your support to bring this project to life.
When you back this project, you help make sure this project will be released as soon as possible.
What are we doing with all this Money?
Extra money will go towards making sure we have a high quality project, and you can expect some very cool extras when we start to announce our stretch goals.
For a Sample of what we're offering, here is a sequence from the first chapter.

What is the plan between now and when you get your book?
Honestly, thank you so much for checking out our project. We're eternally grateful for everyone who has helped and supported us so far. We're only a few steps away from being able to bring you and our readers the definitive version of CONCEPTUAL HEIST BOOK 1: The Old Guitarist.
If you've come this far you're ready to see us through.
Now is the time to get in on the action, so choose your reward, back us on Kickstarter, and Join The Heist!
Risks and challenges
This is our fourth campaign, and the entire book has been written and drawn. Chapters 1&2 are complete and ready to go, and Chapter 3 is in the hands of our colourist. As soon as everything is complete we'll be heading to print and getting ready to send the books your way.
Our major concern is just making sure we get the books completed in time to send them out to you this summer.
No plan survives contact with the enemy, and that covers Kickstarter too. No campaign comes without risks, bumps in the road, and lessons learned, and we've certainly learned from our previous campaigns.
That said we're dedicated to delivering a quality product to our backers. We'll be handling fulfillment in-house, to eliminate the risk of delivery delays and to make sure your pledges arrive in great condition.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
