BLOOP is the acclaimed, all-ages webcomic graphic novel in a beautiful oversized, hard bound, numbered and signed book.
Ending in less than 30 minutes!!! :D
We're nearing the finish line - I've added a few more of the Book + Plushie rewards at the $75 and $135 level (we had sold out!)!
In these last few days we reached our first goal which means the bonus print featuring the work of many of my favorite cartoonists will be rewarded to each backer of $20 or more. The amazing lineup of guest artists on the print includes: Richard Thompson, Chris Baily, Thom Zahler, John Gallagher, Nick Galifianakis, Art Baltazar, Andy Runton, Batton Lash, James A. Owen, Marty Baumann, Jamar Nicholas, Rich Faber, Jimmy Gownley, Carolyn Belefski, Rick Veitch, Frank Cho, Dean Haspiel, Graham Nolan, Jerry Ordway and Scott Christian Sava!
We're now looking at the next stretch goal of $11k! If we can reach that amount, all backers of $50 or more will get a bonus 6x9 softcover edition of BLOOP: Part One and a BLOOP T-SHIRT!
Thanks for visiting the Kickstarter page for the deluxe, oversized hardcover edition of BLOOP: Part One!
BLOOP is a webcomic graphic novel written and drawn by Steve Conley - that's me. I'm a designer and illustrator. I've designed hundreds of web sites and thousands of illustrations for some of the biggest companies and publishers in the world. I also created one of the earliest webcomics back in 1998, called Astounding Space Thrills. I've also written and drawn comics for some of the best comics publishers including IDW (STAR TREK), Dark Horse Comics (Michael Chabon's Escapist) and DC Comics (Aquaman). BLOOP is my latest comics project.
BLOOP is the story of a little, green space monkey who is looking to find the perfect tree. Along the way, he makes some friends and discovers that not only his tree, but the entire planet, is threatened by robots bent on tearing the world apart.
This Kickstarter campaign is to help create the first in a series of three giant, hardcover collections of the story. The BLOOP webcomic is free to read online and if you haven't checked it out yet, I hope you will.
This Kickstarter will let fans and supporters hold in their hands a personalized, deluxe edition of part one of the story.
This first BLOOP collection will be a giant 10 inches x 15 inches which will let readers see all the crazy details and provide an experience that can't be had from a PC or tablet - for small kids, this size is like IMAX.
The book will have a case-bound, hardback cover with a golden foil stamp and a full-color, wraparound dust jacket. The interior will be 28-pages of full-color printing on thick, 100# satin text paper. Each book will be numbered and signed.
If you scroll down this page, you can see details about each of the rewards. I've tried to combine the rewards in various ways to give supporters the most options. If I've missed something, let me know.
Thank you so much for checking out this campaign and for helping to make this project possible.
Please don't hesitate to contact me here on Kickstarter, on the BLOOP web site or BLOOP's Facebook page. I'm happy to answer any questions and I'll be posting regular updates on the project as it progresses.
Thanks again! –Steve
Yes! I'll be making prints available of the new retro designs as well. Anyone who selects a reward with a print (or the four-print option) will be able to select from among the print/postcard designs INCLUDING the new ones as they are unlocked! When the campaign ends, I'll be in touch to make sure you get the print(s) you'd like. :)
