In this collection of 200 comics I am including 10 old comics redrawn for the back of the book. I will include the originals of these comics next to the redrawn copies in the book. My first comics are very different to how they look now! This stretch goal will be neat cos you'll be able to see how much Our Super Adventure has changed/laugh at how wonky everything originally looked. Nice!!!!
£16,000 - STRETCH GOAL REACHED!!
At the back of the book I will include an illustrated guide of how I make my comics, from thumbnail to finished strip. Educational!!!!
£18,000 - STRETCH GOAL REACHED!!
I will get photos taken of myself, Stef, and our four cats for the back of the book. I will add a little illustration to the photos and they will be the fanciest portraits. I personally love seeing auto bio cartoons and their in real life selves! And you will be able to, too! if you have somehow avoided both my Kickstarter and instagram, the mystery of my appearance will be revealed if we hit this stretch goal! Or if you watch the video/look at my instragram! But reaching this stretch goal would be a cooler way to find out, of course.
Hiya! My name is Sarah Graley, and I draw the autobiographical webcomic series Our Super Adventure. The comic mainly focuses on my relationship with my boyfriend, Stef, and our four cats. I like to draw the moments that make my heart go mushy or when something makes me laugh so hard. You can read some of my diary comics over at www.oursuperadventure.com In the past, i've printed small collections of these older comics in limited numbered print runs. For this collection of printed comics though, I have something more special in mind and I need your help to make it a reality!
The goal of this project is to fund a beautiful full colour hardback release of 200 comics drawn over the past year, which have never been in print before! I have been drawing and sharing Our Super Adventure since late 2012, and although I have self-published softcover small collections of strips in black and white, I am now turning to you to help me produce a big, beautiful, hardback full colour collection of 200 strips!
With your help, we can produce something amazing!!
You can view some of the strips for free online over at www.oursuperadventure.com (where i'll be posting a brand new strip everyday this campaign runs), but there will be a lot of strips exclusive only to the print run/digital copies of this book, including ten redrawn strips from the previous small collections.
Below are the rewards you get for helping back my campaign! The tiers are all listed on the right hand side of the screen, but below I've included pictures and some additional information for some of the ~*~fancier~*~ tiers!!
(with portraits, I will email you after the campaign has ended. The portrait can be of yourself, your partner, your enemy, your pet, your own character, your favourite character from that one show with all the stuff, whatever you want! I will need you to provide clear reference photos in colour of faces and from the waist up. Please have reference photos ready for when the campaign ends, so I can get your rewards to you by the estimated delivery date. You will receive an A5 size print and high res digital file of the portrait.)
(The Our Super Adventure comic from the mega adventurer tier can be up to 4 panels. You can either thumbnail the panels yourself, or tell me your idea and I will thumbnail it for you. You will receive the comic printed 8.3x5.8 inches and also as a high res digital file. I will need clear reference pictures of whoever you would like included in the comic. Up to four people included in the comic max, no limit on pets. I reserve the right to turn down anything explicitly sexual, gory or offensive.
If you have any further questions feel free to email me about this!
If you select their tier please have your idea and reference photos ready for the end of this campaign, so I can get your reward sent to you within the estimated dispatch time.)
I'm a 23 year old freelance illustrator and comics artist living in the UK! As well as drawing Our Super Adventure, I also draw the fictional comics 'RentQuest' and 'Your Favourite Pizza Witch.' If you cut me, I bleed comics. Probably. Please don't try and find out. The mystery is half the fun.
Thank you!!!!!! <3
Risks and challenges
I have been self publishing comics since 2012, and I am only using vendors to print my books/rewards that I have used before or have been recommended to me.
I work full time as a freelance illustrator, and have set aside the next three months so I can put my full focus onto this book and this kickstarter.
If any problems were arise, I am lucky to have a network of friends that work in comics that have offered to assist me, and my partner who has both experience in graphic design and distribution.
If any delays were to come up I will communicate them clearly with my backers, but I am confident that this campaign will run smoothly! :)
