December 16, 2011: Be sure to click on the "Updates" tab to keep up with our latest news regarding our book progress and new incentive packages!
nemu*nemu is a webcomic, published online since 2006. http://www.nemu-nemu.com/
The story is all about the lives of two magical stuffed pups, Anpan & Nemu, who go on fantastic adventures with (and sometimes without?) their owners, Anise and Kana. Occasionally, the screen-time is shared by their galaxy exploring counterpart, Enchilada and his trusty sidekick, Pollo.
Although a new comic is updated every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday on our website, nemu*nemu, we'd also like to provide printed books for those who may not be web-saavy or may just love having printed editions to read.
So... help the nemu*nemu gang's latest collection of stories make it to print!
For our 5th anniversary, we bit the bullet and self-published our fifth volume -- perfect bound in full color with a fancy spot gloss cover. This is what we've always intended our printed books to look like and it was amazing to see it become a reality.
Now that we've seen what a difference it makes, it's honestly hard to go back to the way our previous books were printed: black-and-white.
Aside from our usual commentary and extra illustrations, I will include an extra short story that has been in the works for the past year: The Origins of Pollo.
By far, Pollo is one of our most popular characters and many have wondered just where he came from. This story will only be available in the printed book and digital download edition making this story extra special and a must read for nemu*nemu fans.
In addition to our printed paperback edition, I will be offering a limited number of hardcover copies of our book. Each will be numbered, signed, and feature a drawing of any character you'd like.
But wait! There's more!
For our pledge packages, I have a bunch of extra things I'll be throwing into the pot -- trading card sets, vinyl stickers, digital sketches, and even a limited number of hand-made Mister Buns stuffed toys.
These guys are made from scratch (pattern and all) by my mom.
And for the premium pledge incentives, I will be offering the original artwork for the upcoming volume covers (keep an eye on the blog for the preview sketches!) as well as access to any original comic art from my archive and a digital print of the finished comic!
We honestly cannot do this alone! We will be running this Kickstarter from November 26th to December 26th! Make this a Christmas present not only for us, but for all nemu*nemu readers alike!
Perhaps you believe in this project but may not be able to help us fund it? No worries! Help us by spreading the word about this Kickstarter! The more the merrier!
Thanks so much for your time and support! See you at the finish line!
