Gunshow, my big fun webcomic about a variety of things and stories, ended at the end of 2014 and a good chunk of comics weren't yet housed in a dead print collection or even E-BOOK collection. So we're going all out and putting all remaining Gunshow comics in their own BIG FINAL COLLECTION!
Volume 6, "Doomed to Repeat It," will collect Gunshow comics from mid-2012 to 2014, when it ended. That means we get a 400-page book to deal with! And to make it extra special and mess with the look I had going with previous volumes, I decided to make it physically bigger than the others, too. 8.5 x 11 inches! This is gonna be a hefty read.
NO GRAVEYARD QUEST
This collection will not contain the Graveyard Quest storyline! I sold the printing rights of GQ to another publisher who will be announcing it soon! If we added GQ, this book would be EVEN BIGGER and NOT POSSIBLE (maybe). So please don't forget what I said about Graveyard Quest NOT being in this book. It's still got a hell of lot of comics, however. Don't Despair!
NO! Well, only a couple. We are going to make a fold-up poster version of the big Gunshow cast image that graces the website even to this day. Just a quick extra something that is already ready to go. ALSO, we're offering a SLIPCASE for the other Gunshow volumes. All of the other current Gunshow Volumes (Superbook One, Anime Club, and Volumes 3, 4, & 5) are 7 x 9 inches, so we're making a slipcase that will house only those volumes, for those friends and fans who have them already. I haven't finished designing it yet, but I know what I want to do, so it's basically ready in my head and my heart.
As a special final goodbye, I asked some of my peers and friends if they would draw Gunshow characters that I will place in strategic locations around the book! They all said yes!! It's so exciting. They are:
- Becky Dreistadt (Capture Creatures)
- John Keogh (Lucid TV)
- Magnolia Porter (Monster Pulse)
- Natasha Allegri (Bee & Puppycat)
- Steve Wolfhard (Cat Rackham)
- Mariel Cartwright (Skullgirls)
- Brian Lee (wow)
- Laura Knetzger (Bug Boys, Sea Urchin)
- Gashi-Gashi (did an adventure time comic cover and is good at art in general)
- Jordan Speer (QCHQ)
- Evan Dahm (Vattu)
- Jeffrey Rowland (Overcompensating, is sitting right across from me as I type this, Hi dude)
They are waiting in the wings to draw these characters and you should always get paid for the work you do for others. So we're gonna!!!
Risks and challenges
While TopatoCo has always just published my stuff before, this is quite the big freakin' book. So I thought it would be safe to try a Kickstarter for it. Plus it's the last damn book, let's go out big!!!
Make that Thing will be handling shipping and etc. And I personally know the gal who runs it so we're in good hands.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
