      Want to save postage, for people who can pick it up at Stumptown Comics Fest? Or are the logistics of that far too complicated.

      Did anything ever go out for backer addresses? I can't recall and recently moved so would need to change my address. Thanks!

      @ Matt I upgraded! Love the idea of Hate Mail!!
      I write my fair share and make myself laugh wondering what the reactions are to it. The last one might have been to Career Builder when I was looking for work, I had just received my doctorate in psychology, and somehow they matched me with an opportunity to be a Truck Driver.

    12. Biopic.small

      Creator Matt Bors on November 21, 2012

      Hey Ryan. I'm not sure exactly, but right now I'm thinking a funny index, some hate mail, and any supplemental material to add context to the comics.

    13. Blackstalkfinal.small

      Creator Ryan Blackstock on November 21, 2012

      Any teasers on what the fun bonus material might be in the SECOND BOOK?

      Creator Yemaya A. on November 16, 2012

      Oooh, congratulations. I can't wait to see the two books. I know they're going to look great.

      30k is cool and all, but It's important to me that you get to $40,000, so you can shit your pants.

      Creator Sean Michael Wilson and Carl Thompson on November 14, 2012

      Glad things are going well Matt - get tore in, as we say in Scotland.

    17. Biopic.small

      Creator Matt Bors on November 9, 2012

      The second book will feature work mostly from Obama's first term all the way through til press time. Much of it will be work I do that doesn't fit into the chapter themes I've made for the first book. Older, classic cartoon that have held up will also be included.

    18. Biopic.small

      Creator Matt Bors on November 9, 2012

      Good question, Michael. While I haven't added the second book yet, yes, that's how it will work. If you up $15 above your pledge level now, I will put people down for the second collection if I reach 30k. I'll push publicly for it once I feel it's within reach and put everyone who donates on the list for it when I send out the survey at he end.

      Creator Michael Phillips on November 9, 2012

      So if we add $15 to our pledge we get the second book? What might the chapters of it be or the subject of your earlier works?
