 REWARDS

We really want you to have a physical copy of our book, but we understand that many people read comics on the go or on their tablets at home. That's why we're offering digital versions of our book in PDF or CBR formats as well.

You're helping us bring this idea into reality, and we want to make sure that everyone who reads this book knows who helped make it happen!

Imagine this scenario: You're reading your brand new comic anthology. Suddenly, the doorbell rings. It's your ol' pal, Sam, and she wants you to go spelunking in the arctic tundra. If you go with Sam, how in the world will you remember where you left off in your awesome new book!? With an awesome new... Bookmark!

We loved Kevin's cover so much, we wanted to look at it all the time! What better way to do that than with a 11x17 poster to pin up or frame on the wall? You can only get this poster here, so when your friends say, "Whoa! Where in space and time did you get that rad poster?" You can say, "I was there, dude. I was there."

This is one of our favorite rewards! Each of our 20 creators gets their own card to either create something entirely new or to showcase one of their own favorite works, and the back of each card features a unique profile of that creator. *We'll have updated previews throughout the campaign as our designs roll in!

We've got an awesome lineup of artists, each with their own unique style, and many of them have offered to do some inked sketches just for this Kickstarter! These are NOT commissions, these are sketches of the artists choosing, so you're getting something that's unique to them and their own tastes and sensibilities. This a great way to get a one-of-a-kind piece of original art, and show your support for an individual creator. Check out some samples of our artists work below! *We'll have updated previews throughout the campaign as the artists finish their sketches!

 

This is one of the most valuable rewards we have to offer, Original Comic Pages! Five of our creators have generously donated the actual pages that were scanned to create their comics for this book! This is the ultimate collector's item, especially if you're a fan of these artists! You can check out some of their pages below!

 

Do you want something specially crafted just for you? A favorite character from a comic or TV show? Well, a handful of our contributing artists are opening commissions just for our Kickstarter backers!

Depending on the artist, some limitations may apply. Please contact us before making your pledge to tell us which artist you want a commission from so we can confirm if they are available and can fulfill your request. Artist availability will be updated regularly in the graphic above.

 

You'll get the physical book, a digital copy, our exclusive bookmark, and the exclusive poster! All in one package! 

You'll get the physical book, a digital copy, our exclusive bookmark, the exclusive poster, and our exclusive trading card set! All in one package!

 You'll get the physical book, a digital copy, our exclusive bookmark, poster, trading card set, and an original 5x7 sketch! All in one package! *Please specify which artist you want a sketch from. Supplies are limited, and vary from artist to artist. You don't want to miss out on this one!

You'll get the physical book, a digital copy, our exclusive bookmark, poster, trading card set, and an original 11x17 Page from one of the comics in the book! *Please specify which artist you want a page from. Supplies are limited, and vary from artist to artist. This is another one you don't want to miss out on!

You'll get the physical book, a digital copy, our exclusive bookmark, poster, trading card set, and an original 11x17 Commission from one of our contributing artists! *Please contact us before making your pledge to make sure we can do what you want and to specify which artist you want a commission from. Restrictions vary from artist to artist.

 This tier is out of this world! How would you like be invited to a Google Hangout session with Kevin Cross and 3 more of our creators? Pledge at this tier and you'll have 1 hour to ask them anything you want about the comic making process, or even get some advice or critique for your current comic project!

You'll also get the physical book, a digital copy, our exclusive bookmark, poster, trading card set, and an original 11x17 Commission from one of our contributing artists! *Please contact us before making your pledge to make sure we can do what you want and to specify which artist you want a commission from. Restrictions vary from artist to artist.

 You'll get 10 copies of the book at wholesale cost! That's half off the cover price! Plus you'll get our exclusive poster and bookmark! This is a great deal for comic shops and other booksellers. *We may ask to verify that you are, in fact, a legitimate retail shop.

Risks and challenges

Our comics are all finished, the book has been designed, formatted and edited, and we've already printed a proof copy to make sure everything looks as awesome as possible! All we need now is your support to get the book printed and delivered to you and all of our contributing creators! We appreciate all of your help to make this project a reality!

This is our first Kickstarter. We've done a lot of research, we've taken extra precaution while setting our budget, and we've thoroughly ran through the numbers as best as we can. We are confident that everything has been accounted for: our bottom line to supply our creators with at least 1 book each, the cost to ship those books (including internationally), the cost to fulfill and ship rewards to the number of backers needed to meet that cost, as well as the Kickstarter and transaction fees. We've even accounted for the increase to USPS shipping costs coming in January 2018. Our spreadsheet needed a spreadsheet just to make sure all of this was possible. So there's very little risk. If we hit our goal, everything should work out just fine.

All we need is your support to make it happen!
