So why are we bringing this project to Kickstarter? The short answer...we need the funding to continue to produce and print these books! The long answer....we LOVE being a part of the RESPONSIBLE Kickstarter community that commit to delivering new and AWESOME projects to our supporters within the community. This trade will be the first time that ALL of the books from the Like Father, Like Daughter series will be available in one book. And we wanted to give anyone who is new to our efforts the chance to get caught up on the series that actually launched Short Fuse Media Group as a publisher and Kathryn Calamia as a creator. But most importantly, we prefer delivering our books directly to you as opposed to paying costly distributors.
To reach the 100 + Pages benchmark that we were aiming for, this trade also features multiple companion stories that were not previously released within the series as well as a few crossover stories that feature awesome female characters from throughout the indie comic community. Here's a sneak peek at one of the inked pages!!!
Kathryn "Comic Uno" Calamia is by far one of the hardest working creators in indie comics! Kathryn LOVES comics! She also LOVES creating awesome stories and sharing them with the world.
Since she began this series she's taken every chance she could to participate in conventions and in-store signings!!!
She's met fans of her work from all over the United States who LOVE the Like Father, Like Daughter series!!!
Including creators that she is also a fan of!!!! Kat LIVES and BREATHES comics so much that....
...at Making Comics.
Funding for this trade will be used to cover additional production work that has been done to bring all of these issues together, printing of the trade, costs of additional rewards, the cost of purchasing an ISBN number (barcode) so that we can release this trade into bookstores to expand our reach and shipping of the books. Any additional funding will go towards furthering the production of this series as the creative team has already started work on the next issues. The trade is completed and at the printer waiting for approval so that you can have your copy in your hands! In case you've never seen any of the books....Check out some of the pages below!
We have some really cool rewards and really wanted to focus on the core of what this campaign was about so we tried to keep it pretty simple. Check out a more detailed look to the right at some of the rewards that we have lined up for this campaign. We highlighted some of the bigger rewards in a graphic below but there is an assortment of AWESOME rewards to choose from ranging from just the books to adding t-shirts...
And a Kickstarter campaign from us just wouldn't be right without our custom made action figures...
Or our most recent foray into official action figures via our Indieverse Unlimited Action figure line.
As we reach our initial funding goal, we'll start to share what the stretch goals are as we work to unlock them for some AWESOME swag!!!
Risks and challenges
We've attempted to manage all of the risks associated with this project by doing most of the leg work before this campaign's launch so that we could ensure that we continue to deliver immediately after the campaign.
As we did with our previous Kickstarters we will consistently update backers and supporters with any issues that may potentially cause delays in the completion of this project and make the necessary adjustments to resolve those matters quickly and efficiently.
We understand the importance of fulfilling our promises and always ensure that all of our supporters receive their rewards. And we always find ways to sneak extra swag into our reward packages as a thank you for the patience in supporting our projects on the front end and patiently waiting for them to be completed and delivered....so we can focus on the fun part.....making comics!!!
It's because of your continued support that we are able to make these AWESOME comics! And for that we truly appreciate ALL of our backers and keep a wide open form of communication for you all to reach us at any time.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
