Thanks all good!
Hi Chris, please check out the last update I sent about people with multiple rewards - I had to adjust the $ total in order to make our individual deals (combined shipping, etc) jive with BackerKit. Your invoice should reflect all the items (2 extra T-shirts and the Oderus print) that you added on, however - take a look.
My pledge was for $302 but backerkit only shows $142. What do I do to get credit on backerkit without paying again?
Nice Work Everyone!
This is fucking great!!! Thank you for all the backers! Can't wait to get a copy. Will go great with my Slave Pit Funnies collection. Long live Oderus and Gwar!
666 backers. Clearly a sign from Oderus!
Only 4 backers away from 666. Let's make this happen bohabs. Passed 41k and way passed 39k. Now let's make it all mean something way more by only 4 more people pledging. Let's do it!!!!
next time's awards
-Hillary clintons head
-VIP tickets to a performance
We're all really excited and honored to be part of it, but mostly we're humbled that so many fans came together to make the Kickstarter happen. I had faith in GWAR fans because I know how loyal and die-hard we are, but this it's pretty awesome to see it all come together.
We did it!!!! I have been waiting f for new Gwar comics for some years now. Loved the old Slave Pit Funnies, and no doubt will love the new Orgasmageddon. This is what happens when fellow true die hard Gwar fans work together. Heck yeah
i hope to see a tribute (of some kind) to Oderus in the comic -statue -picture in background -shrine
We may yet, David. A lot of folks waiting til the end to see exactly what level they can come in at. Plus, announcement soon about the last day - something special!
i'm a bit disappointed in GWAR fans ? i expected we would reach $50,000. or more by now
Hi Charles, KS doesn't have an easy way to do it, but here's how to:. Go to "manage" from the main kickstarter page, near the top - click thay. There you'll see what you're pledged in on. Add to your $ pledged amount the cost of any extras you want so it reflects the total of all the packages. Keep selected on the same tier, though. It will look like you're paying too much for your stuff, that's ok. Save it, then shoot me a message on here letting me know what you're adding on and I'll mark your account.
There's a message option, that goes direct to me - don't put it here in the comments or I might miss it.
This is presuming you're in the US - if you're international we have to figure out shipping add-ons.
I want to order variants and the standard cover. It won't let me add it to my pledge. I can only select one or change it to another. Any tips on how to pledge more?
Hi Travis, only black on the Sawborg shirt. It's cool tho!
Sawborg Destructo shirt, is that black only or white too?
Hey David, man I would LOVE to do even ONE of the things you're talking about - Funko POPs would be AMAZING. The Where's Waldo knock-off might actually be something someone could do as a backup... thanks for the ideas!
Paul, yup that's what we're doing. It's just kind of a hard thing to explain to folks who aren't super familiar with Kickstarter, but I'm here for any questions.
@Matt Miner How I've seen multiple rewards done is the person over pledges and then the creator just makes a note what else they wanted. If it's a limited item they want, they just edit the amount available. Or the other way is get a second account and pledge a second time, you can use the same card and everything but you need another email.
Looking forward to the comic GWAR is one of my favorite bands. I met Oderus (well he was Dave at the time since he had his make up off) about 15 years ago and he couldn't have been a nice guy. Upside to my picture with Dave was he was holding a bong in his hand. I was sad when he passed.
In fact the other band members I met at the time were super nice.
- action figures (http://www.csmoorestudio.com/)
-bust piggy bank (http://joinfun.en.alibaba.com/)
-funko figure (https://funko.com/)
suggest making a WHERE'S GWAR (where's waldo) book
-find each band member
Hi Kayly, yep the project is based in the US and the funds transfer to US dollars. Thanks for asking!
This all transfers to american currency, right? Would love to donate more but it happens
Hey Victor, the T-shirt comes with a physical signed copy of issue 1. Issues 2-4 (or 2-5 if we're lucky on those stretch goals) will be easily available through comic stores, online stores like midtowncomics.com, tfaw.com and the like, and hopefully through the merch outlets.
Does the t-shirt pledge include digital copies of issues 2-4?
I'm so excited for this!! Slave Pit Funnies reborn! Matt, you gotta get Sean Aaberg for an issue. He commented above.

Hey Rise 2 Brutality - all the rewards should be viewable on the Kickstarter page through your Android phone - they show up on mine. However, you can see bigger pictures over at my blog here: https://mattminerdotnet.wordpress.com/gwar-orgasmageddon/
Hey Brandon, yes issues 2-4 will be printed and available in comics stores, online shops like midtowncomics.com or mycomicshop.com, and hopefully with music/merch outlets too! There are a few reasons we're not offering the printed versions through the Kickstarter (shipping 4 times for 1 Kickstarter is hella expensive, for example) but the main one is GWAR gets the whole profit share when the books go to retail and we don't want to take from that - so buying the books in stores when they're out helps that store and the band.
hey, will issues 2-4 be printed and how would we be able to obtain them?
I pledged through my android mobile phone. Are all the covers, original art and all the other goodies available for viewing pleasure? If so is it only available to view through desktop? Because it doesn't show through mobile. Thank you
I figured it out Don't go to manage your pledge at the top do it from the Pledge amount you selected from the list on the side that takes you to the options i saw on the youtube video. Doing it from the top will only change your pledge and not really manage it.
Hey Justin! Same way, just go to "Manage" and add the value of that package to your pledge (in your case, $130 added to your current amount) then save your new total - shoot me a message when you do it and I'll note your account to get the set of 7 covers too.
I'm in for $215. What's the easiest way to grab the set with special edition covers?
I'm stoked to see GWAR COMIX coming back! Best of luck!
Hey Scott, that's right - it's the only way to do it on Kickstarter, I know it's inconvenient. Manage pledge, add the new $ amount to your current pledge & then message me with what you are adding. Then I can note your account. Kickstarter unfortunately isn't set up to dp multiple rewards very easily, but we can take care of it! Thanks man!
I tried the manage option but i can only change the amount and not add more.
I would be happy to wait for a set, or even better pick it up when they next manifest near me.
Hi Kevin, I can ask, but the guys are going on tour starting today so... outlook not so good.
Any chance on more of those signed trading cards? I would KILL for a set.
I CAN'T wait for this to come out. I'm so excited. Gwar is amazing!!
My head was swimming after watching this <3 How exciting!
Hey Scott, the T-shirt Tier comes with the standard cover comic. The variants are limited editions and are more expensive both to make (because they're much lower print runs) and to pledge on. If you want to grab cover C we can do that but it would mean adding that tier's value ($20) to your pledge through the "manage" option near the top of the Kickstarter.
Hope that makes sense - Kickstarter isn't the easiest for adding multiple rewards.
he means he wants to choose the cover art for a higher tier. I would like Balsac cover art on my order but i pleadged 45 with no option of saying i want option C as the cover art
Hey Trevis, I'm gonna PM you because I'm not sure exactly what you mean.
If we pledge for a higher tier item that includes issue #1, do we still get to choose the art cover?
