Hi, I'm Dave Kellett, and I'm collecting all my geek-focused comic strips into a new book called POP CULTURE! It's every comic strip I've ever done poking fun at batpugs and bat'leths and balrogs and battlestars!
You've been asking me to collect all these comics into one place for years...and now it's happening! Check out how awesome it's going to be:
- 240 pages (thick!)
- Featuring every pop culture joke from my comic strip, SHELDON!
- Themed sections! Get your book, and flip straight to your nerdery of choice!
- Beautifully printed and bound by one of the best printers in the world!
- 8.5” x 9” (216mm x 229mm)!
- 50% of the comics have never before been in print!
- 100% of the comics have been colored/remastered by Sheldon colorist Beth Reidmiller! ♪♫This book is full-colorrrrr and looks super radddddd ♪♫ !!!
SAMPLE COMICS FROM THE BOOK:
Want to back the book? Here's a quick guide to rewards! (And to help, each level calls out the added reward from the previous level!)
In addition to the book, higher reward tiers will also be receiving awesome items such as...
Planning on backing at the THE ART LOVER or THE ULTIMATE ART LOVER levels, and would like a piece of SHELDON original comic art? You're welcome to claim *any* SHELDON original in the archives: Just look for comics that don't say "PURCHASED" underneath them in red text on the site.
Once we reach our goal, we head into STRETCH GOALS. And that's where it gets fun: With each new stretch goal we unlock, your physical book will get better and better, as we add gloss, foil stamping, awesome cover flaps, and more! All at no extra cost to you!
We're planning to ship your book out in August, using USPS. And, because we'll be shipping direct from the studio, each package will be getting a little smooch on its way out the door. EXTRA SMOOCHES FOR YOU, BASICALLY.
A NOTE FOR INTERNATIONAL FRIENDS: We're charging *exactly what it costs us* to ship from the USA. So if you live in London or Sydney or Berlin, the shipping, alas, is what it is. But to help, we made a handy-dandy shipping chart to help your decision, BELOW. Sometimes, going up or down one tier can save you a bit, so it's worth comparing.

Risks and challenges
This is my 8th Kickstarter, and my 17th book, so I'm feeling confident about this project. But I do know that unexpected hiccups can pop up along the way. Should any problems or delays arise with the POP CULTURE book, backers can expect to be kept well-informed with regular updates until the problem is fixed.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
