About

UP and OUT: Volume One!

$15,176

Update! New reward!

For $3 you get a PDF copy of The UP and OUT Sketchbook! Consisting of 88 strips from 2013 - 2014, it's a look into my creative process directly from my sketchbook! You get to see the doodling/writing that goes into making a strip and nearly all of the strips have commentary on what the heck I was thinking at the time!

All of the higher tiers get to enjoy the reward as well! Added value!

What Is UP And OUT?

UP and OUT is a weekly webcomic by Jeremy Kaye that started May 2013 and is currently ongoing. The comic is full of weird one-off gags, surreal observations and sometimes wicked good puns. 

 Huh? A book? You're making a book??

UP and OUT has been running for two years now and it's high time to collect the strips into a book GOSH DARN IT! Excuse the vulgarity. The book will contain 168 pages of comics in a glorious soft cover book.

The comics can all be found online, but the ones in the book are going to look flipping amazing! I've gone back over all of my comics that had dark/muddy colors and completely reworked them so that they're going to look amazing in print. I've grown a lot as an artist over the past two years and the book will really reflect it! Check out the difference:

Cost of Printing

You may be wondering what I'm doing asking for $12,000. That's a whole heckuvalot of money! I know, I know! I would've thought the same thing if I hadn't done the calculations myself (and then checked the numbers about a dozen times!).

The $12,000 is for everything from the cost of printing the books, to getting them shipped to me, to shipping them out to YOU, as well as Kickstarter fees, shipping materials, and other miscellaneous costs. It's all going directly into the project as soon as the 30 days are up!

Stretch Goal

If this project manages to raise funds beyond the original goal, I want to be able to make the book better the only way I know how: more comics! 

$14,000 - If we raise this much money, I'm going to add in an additional 12 pages of comics! There are a whole bunch of great comics of mine that had to be cut from the book to keep the costs down and I would love nothing more than to add them back in!


What's that? You wanna see more comics??

Risks and challenges

While this may be the first time I have ever done a print job to this scale, I'm confident in my ability to get the books out to you in a timely fashion. I've spent a long time researching issues that have arisen in other projects and have done as much as I can to ensure that the project runs as smoothly as possible. The book is completely finished, it's just a matter of having the money to tell the printer I've chosen to make it a reality and sending it off to all of you!
