Hey everyone! This is Monica, I’m the creator of Assassin Roommate, and welcome to our very first Kickstarter for it! (insert Dino Hood roars!) I can’t tell you how long I’ve been waiting for this and how flippin’ excited I am to make it a reality! Okay, *ahem*, professional voice:
For those of you who may not (yet!) be familiar with the comic, Assassin Roommate is about two polar opposite people who are thrust together as roommates after college. One is a nerdy, introverted gal who’s all about inside time, and the other is an extroverted, former frat guy whose home away from home is the bar down the street. Which starts off great for two people who want nothing to do with one another! But soon time and circumstances, … and dinosaur shows and shirtless moments and kitchen dances and suspicious reflexes … start to change things between them. For better? Or worse? For romance? Or for DANGER?? You’ll have to read to find out!
For those of you who ARE familiar with the comic and have been reading and commenting along with me these past two years, I love you and you’ve made all my dreams come true and I can’t wait to share a kick-ass, collected edition of the comic with you! So let’s go out there and punch this Kickstarter into a reality! Er, book! You know what I mean!
Thank you! Go team!!
ABOUT ASSASSIN ROOMMATE: A comic about an unlikely pair of roommates who maybe experience love, arguments, and murdery things together.
ASSASSIN ROOMMATE is an ongoing webcomic on LINE Webtoon. This is your chance to be the first to get your hands on the reformatted print edition of Season 1, which collects the first 26 chapters of ASSASSIN ROOMMATE - approximately 120 pages of content - complete with behind the scenes designs, roughs, and interviews with the creator!
The goal of the Kickstarter is to get the comic reformatted for print and into your hands as quickly as possible! We'll be designing Kickstarter exclusive covers and the more we raise the more content goes into the book, the more stretch goals are unlocked, and the more add ons we can offer. The stretch goals and add ons are a secret until they've been hit. We'll reveal the stretch goal that's available to hit next, and when it unlocks we'll reveal the next one. Ditto with the add ons and we think everyone will be pleasantly surprised with each!
The other stretch goal we can tell you about now is in order to unlock Season 2 we're looking to hit 12K. That allows us to do all of the pre-production on reformatting and vendor work prior to the Season 2 Kickstarter. Meaning when that volume is Kickstarted, it will have already been sent to the printers and we'll have approved proofs back.
So, what am I getting for my pledge? First, all backers at the $24 Kickstarter Edition level will get the collected first season, printed at 5.7"x8.2" with a matte lamination with gloss spot varnish cover, exclusive to this campaign. Each page of the comic will be carefully reformatted to provide the same quality of reading experience many of you have already had online.

Risks and challenges
There is little risk in that this book is being published and the art has been completed. The team running the Kickstarter have worked with the vendors and printers before and have confidence in the quality and timeline we've outlined. However, during production mistakes can happen and some of the vendors are overseas. Should something not arrive in time or as expected we will quickly communicate that to all backers and let everyone know when to expect items should dates shift.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
