Hi! I'm Sarah Graley and I'm the creator of Our Super Adventure, a diary webcomic about living with four cats and a cat-like boy! I love drawing the moments in life that make my heart go mushy, and the moments that make me laugh! You can read some of my diary comics over at Webtoon!
I also write and draw comics like Kim Reaper & Rick and Morty: Lil' Poopy Superstar for Oni Press, and Glitch for Scholastic Graphix (out in 2019!).
Back in 2015, I ran a successful Kickstarter for the first Our Super Adventure hardback collection, and now I'm back to to ask for your help to kickstart the second hardback collection: Our Super Adventure: Video Games and Pizza Parties!
The goal of this project is to fund a beautiful full colour hardback collection of 200 comics drawn over the past three years, which have never been in print before! Around a third of the comics will be book-exclusive too!
This time I want to make the book better than ever with a really nice printed cloth spine! It's going to the best Our Super Adventure book so far and I need you to help me to make it happen!
Our Super Adventure is a diary comic all about me, Sarah, and my everyday life with my partner, Stef, and our four cats - Pesto, Toby, Wilson and Pixel! We joke about a whole bunch with one another and we've got a shared love of videogames, music and pizza!
I started making these comics as a way of keeping track of various sweet or funny moments that happened, and since starting to post them online five years ago, they seem to have found their way to so many other people who have had similar sweet moments in their own lives and relationships!
We always thought we were kinda silly - we're definitely in the adult phase of our lives but at the same time we don't really feel like adults - but after hundreds of conversations with like-minded people at comic conventions and online, maybe we're all a little bit silly in the same way?
Our cats are a massive part of our lives, and naturally they're a huge part of the comics as well! We've had four cats for the last four years, and we love them all so, so much. If we're ever having a quiet moment, normally it doesn't take long for one of them to track us down and hang out with us. (If they aren't too busy causing trouble with each other of course!)
In the last three years since I kickstarted Our Super Adventure, we've travelled out to numerous overseas comic conventions, moved house, and we've even started working together! Even more recently, we made another big leap of sorts too:
So here we are! Almost three years to the day that I started the Kickstarter for Our Super Adventure, we're here to try and get a really lovely 2nd collection together, collecting Our Super Adventure comics from 2015-2018. We're calling it Our Super Adventure: Video Games and Pizza Parties.
For this Kickstarter project, we want to collect all of the Our Super Adventure strips posted online between 2015 and 2018 (except for the Our Super American Adventure ones, they've got their own book already!), and combine those with over 60 brand new never-been-online comics to make another collection of 200 Our Super Adventure comics!
This time around we want to make a really special first edition print run of the book. We're looking at getting the book made with a printed cloth spine, and it's going to look incredible!
We're also going to try and put in some extra features too - we've got ideas for some bonus stretch goal pages involving the cats, photo collages of what we've been up to since the first book came out, and maybe even getting Stef to draw and colour a whole Our Super Adventure comic!
We love making these physical comic collections - we really like the idea that in an age where comics can be found and read online so easily, the physical book should be as nice as it can be! With my first Kickstarter back in 2015, I got to make a really nice 200 page hardback book for Our Super Adventure, and it literally wouldn't have happened without the wonderful support of all of the Kickstarter backers on that project!
So, we're back on Kickstarter for Our Super Adventure: Video Games and Pizza Parties, because we want to make this collection as nice it as can be, and we totally need your help to make it happen!
We also want to make some other Kickstarter exclusive things, like signed and sketched bookplates, new enamel pins, and t-shirts too!
The Our Super Adventure: Video Games and Pizza Parties 1st Edition book will be a square 16.5 x 16.5cm (inside pages 15.5 x 15.5cm) hardback with a printed yellow cloth spine. It's a book finish we've seen a few times and we've always been really impressed by how nice it looks - we're really looking forward to getting to see these books in person!
The book will contain 200 Our Super Adventure comic strips - That's all the comics posted online between 2015 and 2018 (except for the Our Super American Adventure comics which have their own book already!), and around 60 Our Super Adventure comics which are book exclusive! The book should be around 224 pages long.
The book will be full colour, and we've gone back and relettered some of the earlier strips so everything looks super nice and consistent! I also redrew some of the earlier comics too - I was just getting used to my new setup at the time and some of the colours and art looked a bit weird. These original versions will live on forever online, but I wanted to make sure that everything in the book looked as good as it could be!
All books will be signed!
The bookplate is something a bit more special for your book! This is an 8cm x 11cm bookplate that will be signed, personalised and sketched on, and then stuck into the front of the book! If you want the personal touch, this is the reward for you!
I love making hard enamel pins, and I've designed a special set for this Kickstarter - a gold and white Our Super Adventure speech bubble pin, and a gold and black Toby pin!
This Kickstarter-exclusive t-shirt design is the first 3 colour screen print t-shirt that I've ever designed! We're using Gildan Softstyle t-shirts, they're lightweight and good quality! (Sizes available - Unisex S - 3XL)
If you don't already have the first Our Super Adventure book, you can totally get it as part of this Kickstarter campaign too! Both books are the same size, so they should look great on a shelf together. This book features 200 Our Super Adventure strips as well, in a hardback book with gold foiling detail on the cover.
LIMITED SPACES - ALL SPACES FULL
For this special reward, I'll draw you your own Our Super Adventure comic strip! It can feature you, your loved ones, your pets, whoever you like! You can tell me what you want to happen in the four panels, and I'll make it happen!
I do all my art digitally, so I'll send you both the finished digital file, and also print it and send it to you as well!

Risks and challenges
We're going to be working with the amazing Oni Press for a retail release of this book in mid-2019, but we wanted to do something special to show our thanks to all of our fans and readers who've been supporting us over the last five years! Because of you, we've been able to keep making comics and post them online!
This campaign will fund this special First Edition print run, and we'll be sending out all the books to you directly!
We’ve got regular suppliers that we use for pins and t-shirts and they make good quality things and deliver on time so we’re confident about using them.
We’re using a new book printer and we’re confident that the books will look amazing! They’ve used similar finishes on projects before and the delivery times that we’ve been quoted mean the books should be in our hands super quickly for us to get them sent out to our awesome backers!
We’re using itch.io to deliver all digital rewards and they’ve got a great track record for digital stuff so that should all go smoothly too.
If we hit any snags, we'll keep everyone up to date with constant updates!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
