Monster Pop! is a slice of life romantic comedy with heavy shoujo influences that I've been publishing online since 2012. We follow George Tinsley (cyclops, student radio broadcaster, and general crybaby) through adventures in love, friendship, and college! 

Volume 2 contains 144 pages of comic panels, creator Q&A, character bios, behind-the-scenes peeks, and more! Follow George through chapters 3 & 4 as she finds herself crushing on her cute classmate, dealing with heartbreak, and confronting her past.

★ Read Monster Pop!  // Buy Volume 1 Now

 

Wow! It feels like I just finished Volume 1, but that was nearly two years ago! I'm excited to share chapters 3 & 4 with you all in print form. I've taken a lot of time developing extra content I hope you'll love. Since Volume 1 I feel like George has grown so much, and so have I! 

My goal is to raise at least $15,000 to print at least 750 copies of Monster Pop! Volume 2, as well as fund new merch for the main cast and to celebrate new characters!

Miss out on the Kickstarter for Monster Pop! Volume 1? No problem! A bunch of the tiers include the old book, or if you don't want to wait you can buy it right now.

 

 

 

★5x 7" on thick cardstock, art by Starpatches, Trungles, Coey Kuhn, Manda Schank, and a super secret artist to be announced!

 ★6 5-6min videos with voice over showing how i approach drawing the main cast

★6 8.5x11" prints on glossy paper showing the main cast and their significant flowers, derived from flower language. 

 ★4x6" stickers made to fit perfectly on the inside cover of the book.... or wherever! it's up to you! each signed individually

 ★4x6" sticker sheet of the main cast

 ★1.5" double sided clear acrylic charms. comes with lanyard & dust plug to hang from phone, DS, keys, etc

Sketch Commissions: A digital sketch of up to two Monster Pop! characters (PG-13 only). Please have your commission idea ready when you pledge; I will contact you during the campaign to approve the idea. That way if I decline the commission you will be able to lower or delete your pledge before you are charged!

★Monstersona Commission: I will design a monstersona to fit the Monster Pop! universe for you, your original character, your friend, your dog, whoever! Not only will you get an original design and fully completed character pin up, your monstersona will also appear in a future comic update! The final illustration will also be printed and mailed to you along with your other rewards.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Will Volume 2 be available online and at conventions after the Kickstarter, like Volume 1?

Yes! 

There was a misprint in Volume 1 that delayed delivery, do you think that'll happen again?

Nope! I've switched to a printer that is a fifteen-minute drive away from my apartment. I'm able to go to their printing center and proof the book before they send it to print!

Why is international shipping so expensive?
I calculated international shipping by the flat cost to ship to most countries, plus materials to ensure your rewards get to you safely. It's pretty expensive! I calculated Canadian & other international shipping separately to ensure the lowest cost on your end.

Risks and challenges

I've done a couple Kickstarters now and I'm fully prepared to fulfill pledges and I've already calculated shipping costs for domestic and international pledges, as well as chosen the shipping materials for each tier and location. Any delivery can get a little banged up, especially international orders. I've got packaging requirements all figured out to prevent any serious damage from occurring in the first place!

The book is formatted and ready to go to print.

I've set aside time for myself and my fiancee has set aside her time and is prepared to take time off work to help me ship everything out in a timely manner! I practiced transparency for the Vol. 1 KS as far as receiving items, packing them and bringing them to the post office, and I plan to do so for this campaign as well.

A huge risk is living down the typo in George's name in the MP! Volume One KS that I just noticed.
