The Pride is the comic series all about a team of all LGBTQ+ superheroes, coming together to show just what their community can be and do, and fight for justice for everyone!
We've been going for a while now, and in fact not too long ago did a very successful Kickstarter for the collected edition of the whole first volume.
Now, The Pride is taking part in Kickstarter's Make 100 initiative, and looking to make a brand new limited edition enamel pin of one of The Pride's most popular characters, Queen Sapphire of the Sapphons, Muscle Mary.
There are a number of reward tiers available, including ways to get the enamel pin, plus the hardcover or digital editions of the comics or collection.
The pin, which is designed by The Pride artist Hector Barros, will be hard enamel with gold elements (in the image below, where Pantone Solid Coated 123C is listed), a backing card, and 38mm in size, and will be limited to just 100 pieces!
Also, if you support the similar Make 100 Kickstarter campaign by friend of The Pride Mike Garley for his project, Samurai Slasher, as well as this campaign, we'll give you a little something extra.
NB: You must select a reward tier for an enamel pin on both Kickstarters, and if you do, we'll each send you out a free button badge set, along with your pin.
Thank you for your support!
About The Pride
The Pride is a comic series all about FabMan, Wolf, Muscle Mary, Twink and more coming together to form a team of all LGBTQ+ superheroes to fight for justice for everyone, and work towards greater diversity and representation so the world can see exactly what they can do.
So far, there has been a six issue main series, titled The Pride, and four issues of a spin-off series, titled The Pride Adventures. Featuring a broad range of artists and creators, the series was very much a community coming together to make a series about a community.
The comics have been collected into a hardcover edition, which was successfully funded by a very successful Kickstarter campaign.
The first issue of The Pride was one of ComiXology Submit's Top 25 Best-Selling Titles of 2014, and has garnered the following praise.
"I highly recommend this smart, charming, wonderful book to anyone who likes good comics. It's absolutely a pleasure to read and a clear labor of love." - Gail Simone, Crosswind, Leaving Megalopolis, Clean Room
"THE PRIDE. Old-School and Progressive at the same time. Classic, high-energy superhero action that gives the queer community the heroes they've always deserved." - Steve Orlando (Justice League of America, Midnighter, Virgil)
Risks and challenges
With this Kickstarter campaign, things are fairly straight forward and fairly low cost to produce.
There is a possibility that production on the enamel badges may take longer than estimated. Usually it is one month, which is why we have set the shipping date for about a month after the end of the campaign, but occasionally they can take longer, so there's a chance of a slight delay in shipping of the badges. This is not likely to be much more than additional two weeks though.
Having had some issues shipping the hardcovers to the United States before, we have since found a new method that has had a 100% success rate and in speedy time too, so we will be using that this time as well.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
