SRD's Storybook Series (previously known as "The Mystery Science Storybook Series,") is currently in the middle of its fourth volume, The Great American Storybook: Red, White and Blue All Over! Despite this progress, however, we are in DESPERATE NEED OF FUNDING to complete the project. Don't know about the series? I'll let some friends of mine break it down for you...
- "Mystery Science Storybook takes scenes from some of the cheesy films made famous by RiffTrax and Mystery Science Theater 3000 and reimagines them as bedtime stories. It's a graphic novel that puts a new spin on cult classics like Birdemic and "Manos" The Hands of Fate that's perfect for bad movie fans of all ages!" - RiffTrax.com
- “[Mystery Science Storybook is] almost certainly what eyes and the English language were invented for. Buy a copy for your friend! Buy a copy for your enemy, who will then read it, love it, and become your friend, too. I'm not saying this book is the key to world peace, but isn't that too big a chance not to take?” - Matthew J. Elliott, RiffTrax Presents
- "Before you is a veritable MSTie's playground with hilarious merry-go-rounds that will hurl you right into funny town. This love letter to all things riffing is a gift to the movie mockery community at large!" - Rikk Wolf, Incognito Cinema Warriors XP
There are currently six of twelve chapters of Volume 4 that have been competed, and they are...
...but we need your help to finish the book on time. We have bills to pay, printing and shipping costs, and since the project is full-color, it is cost prohibitively impossible to finish the project without some fundraising. Please check out our reward tiers and see if anything catches your fancy.
PLEASE NOTE: The physical rewards we are offering are the books themselves. We learned from the original 2015 Kickstarter that physical rewards outside of this were more expensive than originally calculated, so we are only offering the books this time around. It is also important to note that the reward level for paperbacks and hardcovers are identical to the pre-order prices as not to devalue pre-orders already placed or pledges made during this campaign. Pre-orders will be suspended during the campaign, but orders already placed will not be affected.
Our initial goal is $1,000, but once we make that we will be having stretch goals to expand what we can do with more funding.
All upcoming chapters, including stretch goal chapters, will be introduced during the campaign. If we make it to $3,000 and $5,000, respectively, that's when we will announce what the bonus chapters in the next stretch goal will be.
Risks and challenges
As many of you know, the first Storybook encountered problems with James Nguyen, director of Birdemic: Shock and Terror. Since that time, we have taken steps to ensure something like that will never happen again.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
