Update #1

A look inside Volume Three!

Thank you so much for the support so far, everyone. We’re near our goal already! Remember, if you have any friends you want to get into this series, these are the cheapest bundles we’ll ever sell! So get in quick, etc.

Part of our crazy “in time for Christmas” pre-production process involved getting a printed copy of Volume Three made up in advance. We have some photos of our special copy for those curious.

BUT WHAT IS INSIDE? Well, let’s take a quick tour to give you an idea of what you’re getting:

This is the first part of the recap, printed in a Volume Two halftone style. We wrote it in a storybook style and employed some proofreading help from a simple English expert to get the wording right. It's brisk, but cute!

Title pages are now all two-page spreads. The border colors complement the titles (and, we hope, the themes of each chapter.)

It’s subtle without comparison, but we fixed a lot of perspective wonkiness in pages like these. This is the last volume we'll publish with those borders, by the way. Full bleed ahead. (Though we did the edge-to-edge thing for the bonus chapter and intermissions… it looks great, believe us.)

Nobody reads these terrible blurbs, right? Also, welcome Sue and Amaya to covergirl status. Even if it’s.. the back cover.

We’ll post more stuff as the campaign continues! Again, thanks for all the kind words and for backing us. We hope we can fund this thing soon!
