Conspiracy Friends Volume Three: Hot Vatican Nights will collect chapters 14 - 20 of the Conspiracy Friends webcomic. It'll be a handsome, 7 inch square paperback that runs 160 pages, including an exclusive 5-page story (detailing Marcie's secret history!) available only in this collection.  

We're offering buttons and prints as backer rewards, and if you don't have the first two books, you can add those, too. 

If we hit the stretch goal, you'll have the option to upgrade to a Kickstarter-exclusive, signed and numbered hardcover edition of the book as well!

First and foremost, of course, is a copy of the book itself. You can get the PDF for a mere $3, or back at the $15 level or higher to get the print edition. 

SWAG PACK: To sweeten the deal at the $25 level, we're also offering a set of five 1-inch buttons that will help you reveal your clandestine secret identity to the world. They look like this:

Also a 5x7 mini-print, which continues the series from the Book Two Kickstarter:

ALSO: We hit the $750 stretch goal, so backers at the $25 level and above will get a copy of Fan Libs, which is EXACTLY WHAT IT SOUNDS LIKE.

18 x 24 POSTER: at the $45 level, we're offering a detailed 18x24 poster of Steve's conspiracy org chart! This is a thing that I made in real life with yarn on a corkboard and then photographed, and I BELIEVE THAT IT IS MAGNIFICENT

 But wait, there's more!

If you support my brand new Patreon page (for any amount), we'll add a 2-1/4 inch Wendigo Penelope refrigerator magnet to your swag pack! Only Patreon supporters who also back this Kickstarter at the $25 level or higher will get this ABSURDLY EXCLUSIVE reward.

QUESTION: Can I back the Patreon for like a dollar and then immediately cancel my pledge once the magnet ships?

You know, we're not the Patreon police. Do what you gotta do.

UNLOCKED! Fan Libs book added to swag pack

Backers at the $25 level or higher will receive a copy of Fan Libs, the world's most derivative word game. (It's like Mad Libs, with each story taken from a different fandom, and the copyrighted words changed to generic descriptors.)

UNLOCKED! Exclusive hardcover edition of book three! 

We'll produce a Kickstarter-exclusive hardcover edition of Book Three! It will have a larger page size (8x8) and be printed in a small batch (hand-numbered by me) just for Kickstarter supporters. (Backers at the $15 level will need to bump up to $20 if they'd like the hardcover instead. Everyone backing at the $25 tier or higher will have the option to upgrade at no extra cost.)

If you missed any of the stuff from the last Kickstarter, you can add it onto your order by increasing your pledge for by a certain amount for each add-on. (You'll get to specify which materials you're paying for in the detailed survey that goes out after the campaign ends).

BOOKS ONE AND TWO: Add $15 each for paperback, $20 each for hardcover. (If you'd like more than one copy of book three, you can also add $15 for each paperback and $20 for each hardcover).

SWAG PACK ONE: Add $10 to get the five button set and three 5x7 mini-prints from the first kickstarter.

11x17 posters: Add $10 each for an 11x17 poster-sized version of any of the mini-prints (from either Kickstarter)

CUSTOM PRINTS: Add $15 to get a custom, signed 11x17 print of your favorite Conspiracy Friends comic strip (double-sized strips will be trimmed to 11x14, since they're square anyway and cutting off some extra white space makes them easier to frame).

Risks and challenges

We're using the same printer that we've used for the first two books, and the backer rewards are ready to go (we're just waiting on final numbers to have them produced). We expect to have books shipped by mid-January at the latest.
