Welcome, friends.

Celebrate the 10th anniversary of The Big Book of Jerkcity with a second printing. 

Jerkcity is a daily comic strip about Pants, Deuce, Spigot and Rands who have adventures and sometimes get high.  The spirit of the strip is summed up in its official motto, "Slurping and drooling and hurrrr." Jerkcity has updated almost every single goddamn day since 1998.

Inside Cover

The first edition was released on April 20th, 2003. Features include about 100 strips, full-color glossy cover, heavy paper, ISBN, glossary, index, introduction by blogger/author Michael "Rands" Lopp and page numbers. 

Upon request, books can include special requests: coffee cup stain, personal inscription in crayon or tracing of a body part (you choose). All copies sold come with stickers.

This Kickstarter project will fund the cost of printing the book and shipping it to you. Costs include printing, mailing and the fees from Amazon/Kickstarter. We'll eat the remaining costs: Adobe products, stuffing envelopes, time spent on layout and candy corn. The goal we are attempting to reach allows us to break even on the project.

This is a limited run of 200 copies through a small printing company. Pledge your big fat American dollars and if enough people want to join in then you all get books delivered to your faces.

The reprint will contain improvements such as tweaks to spelling, better rendering of the original images and other surprises.

It would be, like, a privilege and stuff to make even more volumes.

Risks and challenges

While printing a book is straightforward, all sorts of bad things can happen: delays due to publisher errors, apocalypse, untimely death, blown motherboards, getting lost on the way to the printer...

Thankfully we have done this before and we can do it again.
