Thank you so much everyone!!! I'm adding a bonus reward for everyone who donated at the $20+ level, I am going to throw in a super top-secret BRAND-NEW and never-before-seen Space Case Sally mini-mini!
You guys are all amazing and words cannot describe my gratitude. THANK YOU SO MUCH! Let's keep this ball rollin'! The more money that is donated, the more fun extras that I can add to the book and the nicer the quality will be!
The year? 2004. The place? A cafe in Hudson, Ohio. "Space Case Sally" started as the product of a brainstorming session between myself and my best friend Michelle. Over time the character and the setting changed: going through many incarnations before it eventually became a sci-fi adventure tale with a suburban twist.
I started Space Case Sally as a full-fledged webcomic in 2011 and since that time it's become not only my baby, but an outlet for me as an artist to really stretch my creative muscles. The time has come to print up my first full SCS story: "Space Case Sally and the Purloined Pest", but I need your help to do it!
Your typical teenager, Sally lives in a futuristic world filled with space aliens, out-of-control science projects, and most notably: her little brother Oliver. When Oliver is kidnapped by aliens, can Sally manage to find him and bring him back in one piece without being vaporized or grounded by her mother?
The book will be 5.5 x 7 inches, approximately 100 pages and in a perfect-bound paperback edition with super nice paper and a high-quality cover. Included in the book will be the full 63 page story plus some fun extras including character pages, a little bit of history about the story, and a section with all of the beautiful guest art that I have received! The money will be put towards printing up many copies of a really nice book as well as an ISBN number.
This is all to say that in order to get this project off of the ground, I need your help! Along with my profuse thanks, you will receive some amazing swag and rewards! Additionally, if you donate more than $20 I will throw in some cool extras like fun little doodles for you and more minicomics! The prints available to choose are prints of my watercolor cover illustrations for Space Case Sally! Simply let me know when you are donating which one that you would like
All of the prints will be on thick paper with a matte finish which means that they won't get super fingerprint-y!
The comic will be finished and printed up with a tentative release date of September of this year just in time for SPX! Any and all help is appreciated and I can't thank everyone enough for all of your support. It's meant the world to me that I have been able to do this!
Thank you so much for taking a look! Don't forget that Kickstarter is all-or-nothin', and I can't do it withoutcha!
