Hello everyone! Victoria here, I am the creator of #Blessed!
#Blessed is an online comic about romance, dating, deities and deathly prophecies, mixed in with comedy. You can learn more about the comic on the LINE Webtoon app, or from their website at Webtoons.com (blessedcomic.com). I wanna thank to all of the readers who have followed the series on LINE Webtoon for your constant support, and a warm welcome to all new readers who want to know more!
I've been working on this comic for almost two years, and for so long I've wanted to have a tangible, book version of it. I am sure you'd like that as well, with all the extras that you can't get online. This Kickstarter is meant to raise the money to get you the print edition for volume 1! So this is your chance to be a part of it! The book will be professionally reformatted and printed, and through Kickstarter we will be able to offer a bunch of awesome add-ons and stretch goals!
If there is something you want but don't see available, let us know! We will be constantly updating throughout the campaign!
♥ Victoria (Shouri)
ABOUT #BLESSED: Joanna is a mid-twenties office girl who likes social media and watered down coffee. While griping about her love life, she accidentally swiped right on a whole Pantheon of Gods and Goddesses! Looking to fulfill an ancient prophecy, only one of them will be able to claim Joanna as their own... after a nice dinner, that is!
#Blessed is a hit ongoing webcomic on LINE Webtoon currently in its second season. This is your chance to be the first to get your hands on the reformatted print edition of volume 1, which collects the first 26 chapters of #Blessed - 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 in 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 volume 2 we're looking to hit 25k. That allows us to do all of the pre-production on reformatting and vendor work prior to the volume 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 edition, 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
