    ULTIMATE ASHCAN SPECIAL EDITIONS! Here at Duster, we printed black-and-white Ashcan proofs of each chapter of the book as they were fully completed and handed them out to close friends and family to look for printing errors, spelling mistakes, lettering problems, etc. These books feature temporary covers by Jay in his trademark style. Now that we're so far along in production, normally these proof copies would just be consigned to the wastebins of history, but instead we're offering them to YOU! These are the most collectible of all variations of Duster, full as they are with spelling mistakes, weird serifed capital-I's in the middle of words, jarring overprint problems, and other mistakes and errors. YOU GET: the digital copy of Duster, a signed hardback copy with your name in the acknowledgments, the t-shirt, the Howard Chaykin print, the Charlie Adlard print AND a limited-edition set of signed Ashcans! This truly is the ultimate comic collectors package! (international backers, please add $15 for shipping)

    SUPER DELUXE RETAILER SPECIAL: You're one of the biggest retailers in America, right? Then you need to have a few extra copies on hand to satisfy all the people who stumble onto this Kickstarter AFTER the deadline! You receive 30 signed hardback copies of Duster (each with a suggested retail price of $40), a special thank you in the acknowledgments, 3 t-shirts, 3 Howard Chaykin prints, and 3 Charlie Adlard prints. That's a $1200 value for the books alone, and another $300 for the merch... and you're getting all of that for an astounding markdown. PLUS we pay the domestic shipping! (international stores pay shipping) Even better, we'll publicize your store after the Kickstarter campaign ends for latecomers who want to buy copies. Kickstarter projects never come offline, either, so it's a permanent advertisement for your store and recognition that you're a retailer who truly cares about creating great comics (and who also loves a smoking-hot deal!)
