    PDF of Tart 10 with Script Commentary

    The bare bones PDF of Tart 10 will be up on Gumroad.com/kechalcomics for free shortly after Kickstarter backers receive access, and because of that we wanted to do something special for our digital backers who want to support the campaign. Ludo and Kevin have reread the script, redacted any series-long spoilers. and added comments that they think you might find interesting.

    You Back, We Hold

    We have done everything we could to eliminate as many moving parts as possible for this campaign. But we are unable to predict what the near future may bring, especially for backers outside of the United States. If you want to reserve your issue of Tart 10, back it here at cover price. We will PRINT IT AND HOLD IT until the situation around the world becomes predictable again. At that time, we will contact you with the cost to ship the books to you. This tier is also great for people in S. Florida who will see Kevin at a Comic Convention OR for Local Comic Shops when they get up and running again, or if you plan to back a future campaign and would like to combine shipping on those two. Remember, if you back this campaign, you will have access to the Digital PDF, but you WILL NOT BE SHIPPED your book until shipping rates have been agreed upon and paid for (Please don't back this if you expect shipping rates to fall, they have never done so in the 5 years we have been shipping products.)

    Tart 10 Physical Copy Media Mail

    This is where the fun really starts. We want people to read Tart in whatever form they prefer, but we also feel there's nothing more satisfying than a book in your hands. This tier gets you the 32-page Regular Cover Edition of Tart #10. It will be bagged and boarded, slipped into a hard cardboard envelope and shipped media mail to hold down your shipping costs. We rarely have trouble with our comics being bent or harmed during shipping, but if you are a stickler for your books arriving in Mint Condition, we recommend backing at the next tier where the books will be shipped Priority Mail.

    Physical Copy - Safety is Your Priority

    We rarely get complaints about lost packages even when we ship US Media Mail. But the farther our books go from Fort Lauderdale, the more likely it is that a Media Mail package will be bent, dropped, or damaged in some small way. We know some of our backers are not just readers, but collectors. In this tier, you'll get the same copy of Tart 10, bagged and boarded, but it will be packed in a Gemini Flash mailer and sent US Priority Mail. You'll get it faster and safer.

    ZOOM FROM HELL!!!

    Hell. Hell is for children. Or at least that's what Kevin's best friend Pat used to say. Anyhoo, we're paring this campaign down for speed and efficiency, but Ludo created six Zoom backgrounds from our series that you can put behind you. Talk to Grandma from the sanctity of The Toxic Garden or catch up with some fellow Metal Heads sitting in the depths of Hell. This tier also includes Tart #10 shipped Priority Mail.

    Original Sketch by Ludovic Salle'

    Ludo is doing a batch of original sketches for the Kickstarter campaign. In order to facilitate the fastest Kickstarter delivery, these will be on A5 sized paper (5.8" by 8.3"). They will be mailed to Kevin and slipped into your Kickstarter Reward packages. We are sorry, but you can only request/prompt Ludo for a desired character and aesthetic in the Early Bird tier. If that is gone, you'll still get something awesome, but it will be a surprise. As of the moment we launch, the plan is for Ludovic to finish these pieces and send them all to Kevin to disperse. If shipping between France and the US changes, you will receive your books first and the art when it is possible to do so.

    Original sketch by Ludovic - Early Bird

    Ludo is doing a batch of original sketches for the Kickstarter campaign of various Toxic Fruit in different times and places. In order to facilitate the fastest Kickstarter delivery, these will be on A5 sized paper (5.8" by 8.3"). They will be mailed to Kevin and slipped into your Kickstarter Reward packages. To make certain they are here before the books arrive, the majority of these will be randomly assigned. But we wanted to reward our earliest backers of this tier with a chance to give Ludovic the prompt to create the art. You will provide the desired character (Toxic Universe only) and time period or aesthetic during the campaign. Examples: Tart Acid - Flapper, Cherry Macabre - British Punk, Gloom Tangerine - Cave Woman. As of the moment we launch, the plan is for Ludovic to finish these pieces and send them all to Kevin to disperse. If shipping between France and the United States changes, you will receive your books first and the art when it is possible to do so.
