CLONSTERS: SPACE NUGGETS (Book 2!)

$5,710

139

CLONSTERS combines the weirdness and humor of 90s cartoons like "Aaahh! Real Monsters" with the whimsy and heart of modern day animation like "Adventure Time." 

CLONSTERS is back with another volume, and this time we're going planetary. CLONSTERS: SPACE NUGGETS is about a world of strange, lovable monsters who discover the existence of aliens. With the heart of a Pixar film and the off-kilter humor of your favorite 90s cartoon, CLONSTERS: SPACE NUGGETS is an adventure that is truly for all ages.

Love weird little monsters?

Love aliens?


CLONSTERS: SPACE NUGGETS IS THE BOOK FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY!

I'm PAT SHAND and I'm proud to present to you my 12th Kickstarter. I write CLONSTERS with my wife AMY SHAND, who you might also know as the co-writer/creator of the successfully funded graphic novel PRISON WITCH. VANESSA CARDINALI returns as the series artist, creating an immersive and beautiful fantasy world in full, stunning color.

Our lead character is an Earth Nugget named POLLY, who rescues and breeds cat-like creatures called SPLATS. Joined by a SEA NUGGET named NIMAE and the reformed splat-hunter JEKKA, Polly sets out once again to save her world from an alien invasion.

CLONSTERS: SPACE NUGGETS will be 70 pages bursting with extras and fun features to enrich the epic story. We might even be able to expand the story itself if we hit stretch goals... 

Take a look at some art!

We have two covers available. One by VANESSA CARDINALI and our limited edition variant by PLUME creator / AFTERGLOW artist K. LYNN SMITH.


Also, if you missed CLONSTERS VOLUME ONE, get that book here as well! 

That book told the epic story of Polly's quest to find out where all the Splats have gone, which leads her on a hilarious journey across her world.

CLONSTERS VOLUME ONE was funded on Kickstarter two years ago, and the response was amazing. So many people got the book itself along with custom clay creations made by Amy. One of our biggest supporters, Zack Oconnor, even got a Clonsters tattoo!

Jump on board and we promise you'll fall in love with this whimsical world.

All the characters in this graphic novel are based on original polymer clay creations that Amy hand-crafted. Amy created Earth Nuggets, Space Nuggets, Sea Nuggets, Pocket Robots, Pocket Stones, Splats, and more -- so we essentially have an entire line of toys tying in to the graphic novel series.

All CLONSTERS (clay monsters) are available to adopt and take home to carry around in your pocket or sit on your shelf. Amy is also offering clay commissions as well as Clonsters designed after YOUR personality, which can be drawn into the book. Here are some of our amazing supporters and their hand-crafted Clonsters out in the wild:

Clonsters all over the world!
Clonsters all over the world!

Risks and challenges

Between this and the projects I've funded over at our collaborative Space Between company page, this is my 12th Kickstarter campaign. In a creative endeavor of this size, possible challenges could be delays in production or printing, considering we ship overseas. However, any time that has happened in the past has been minor -- we have successfully Kickstarted multiple projects before as creators AND as a team, which has given us the utmost confidence that we'll meet and exceed your expectations. When hiccups are hit, we send updates. When we receive our shipment, we get them our to backers immediately without delay. I mean, why would we want to hold onto the books when we're so eager for YOU to read them?

One thing that we can't control is customs charges. We pay more for international shipping than we charge, but some countries will charge an extra customs fee based on the prices of the items included. Our advice there would just be to be aware of that! We haven't had problems in the past, but I thought it'd be worth mentioning!

Our backers deserve the absolute best, and we promise to deliver the highest quality, the best communication, and all questions answered within 24 hours or less -- ALWAYS!
