***IT'S STRETCH GOAL TIME!***
Read our BIG recap update which explains all our met stretch goals and all other items you can add to your pledge via pledge increases!

To add stretch goal items, you have to increase your pledge amount by the amount specified. Here's how you increase your pledge: https://kck.st/2HAfNBd

Here's an example of a running spread sheet you can use to plan your Kickstarter pledge.

Welcome to Ménage à 3’s fourth Kickstarter!

After successfully funding the printing of Ménage à 3 volume 6, 7, & 8 (& more) with three previous Kickstarters, we've decided to use it again to try and fund the printing of volume 9, and make previous volumes ALSO available! Unlike previous Kickstarters, where we'd try to fund the printing of other books in the Pixie Trix Comix universe, this time it's one book, so a much smaller Kickstarter than usual for us. Let's call this a mini Kickstarter of sorts. Our next Kickstarter will be more like our previous ones: CRAZY! ;)

Ménage à 3 is self-published under Pixie Trix Comix. All properties in the Pixie Trix universe are linked in some form or another to Gisèle Lagacé aka Giz (me!) or David Lumsdon aka Dave Zero1. I collaborate with many talented folks, whom you can read about in the "about" section of the Pixie Trix Comix website. My personal Kickstarter account for projects backed and whatnot is here.

What is Ménage à 3?

Ménage à 3 is a long-form online comic strip co-written by Gisèle Lagacé (me) and David Lumsdon, and drawn by me. It's a sexy, HBO-style romantic comedy set in Montreal. It follows the lives of Gary, a shy 30-year-old comic-book geek, and his way-sexier-than-he-is roommates—adventurous punk rock chick (and bisexual) Zii, and DiDi, a sweet, naïve woman with amazon-like strength. Once Zii becomes Gary’s “wing-girl,” all three of them are set to have wild adventures with a lot of sex appeal, a lot of laughs, and a little bit of heart.

Volume 9 of Ménage à 3 collects the 9th year of the webcomic. Strips included are #1201 (Aug 16, 2016) to #1350 (Sept 26, 2017). This makes for 7 chapters. Each chapter break will feature a new illustration. The book, like all our previous books, will also include a 5-to-6 page print-exclusive bonus story (PDFs include the bonus stories too). This year, our bonus story will be Space Captain Miyuki: Part Deux, which continues our Barbarella-like story (you know, that film with Jane Fonda?) we started in volume 8. Princess Gary has been captured by the evil Empress Space Sonya! It's up to Miyuki and her Space Sex Squad to save him, but things won't be that easy when one of her top soldiers, Zee, has joined forces with the Empress! We're having a lot of fun in this world. So much so that our Gold Edition pledge poster was inspired by it. :)

As some of you may know, we've had to restrain our art choices of late online due to advertisers not wanting us to show nudity. With that said, as we did with volume 8, we plan to fix that for this printed volume (and PDF). I'll go in and tweak a few pages where I feel we would've normally not hidden nudity.

Here are sample comic strips (picked at random) found in volume 9 of Ménage à 3.
Note: Strips are printed 1st half on top of 2nd half in the books.

THE GOAL

Our goal is $19,000 CAD (approx $14,950 USD)

If reached, this amount will allow us to print roughly 2000 copies of Ménage à 3 vol. 9 (176 pgs / 5" x 7.5") and print all the necessary posters and postcards for the pledges. Shipping is expensive, so pretty much half that amount will go to shipping & handling (and shipping supplies.)

We plan to print the book sometime this June so we can start shipping in July 2018. We're not a big business, so sometimes it can take us like a month to get all the packages out, and depending on your location, it can take from one week to two months to get to destination.

We ship everywhere in the world. When you select a pledge, shipping cost will be added for the location you’re in. The shipping cost added is included in the goal amount, so it all adds up! Since we know some backers will be new to Pixie Trix Comix, all our books are available in this Kickstarter.

PLEDGES

Here's a little graphic to help you pick the right pledge.

I DIDN'T FIND A PLEDGE THAT HAS EVERYTHING I WANT.
WHAT DO I DO?

We know many of you wait for our yearly Kickstarter to get some of the stuff found in our store, we're allowing you to get select items from our store via pledge increases. Since Kickstarter can't calculate the extra shipping cost these added items would incur, we've included the shipping cost to each item in the list below. What this means is that when you select a pledge, a shipping cost will be added, but that's only for that pledge in question, and the items in that pledge. When you want more stuff than what's in your pledge, you have to remember that this doesn't work like a store where you can add to cart. You have to add up the cost of the extra items you want based off the list below, note it down, and at the end of the Kickstarter, we'll send you a survey for you to fill out. THAT'S where you'll tell us what this extra amount was for.

Here's a visual aid link (from our previous Kickstarter) to adding items: https://kck.st/2HAfNBd
Older graphic in case the above isn't clear: http://kck.st/1NZcnDT

Here's an example of a running spread sheet you can use to plan your Kickstarter pledge.

Here's our list of stuff you can get via pledge increases.

These prices include shipping to anywhere in the world. Please right-click our store link to either open a new tab or new window to preview all items. Some items aren't on this list as we have limited supplies. Not all books are available as collector's edition, so please double check to see what's still available. Also note that the items in our store are listed in US dollars without shipping added to the amount. What you're seeing here are the same items converted to CAD dollars with shipping included. Rest assured that whether you're buying from our store or getting them here through the Kickstarter, you're paying about the same in the end. (Slightly cheaper here though if you selected a pledge with lots of stuff.)

To all our faithful readers and supporters, thank you SO MUCH for these last 9+ years. We couldn't have done it without your support, and it's a true pleasure creating comics for you. I'd like to also take this opportunity to let you know Sticky Dilly Buns will return. I promise! And volume 2 of SDB will be available in our next Kickstarter.--Gisèle & The Pixie Trix Team

Risks and challenges

Pixie Trix Comix is no stranger to making books. We have 23 books in print. If funded, shipping should start sometime in July 2018. We might experience delays but we'll keep you posted. Based on our past Kickstarters, I think you know that we always deliver.

Pixie Trix is not responsible for import/duty fees your home country may charge. (We haven't had any reports from buyers so far, but we can't assure you 100% that it won't happen.)
