  8. Select this reward

    Pledge $150 or more About $150

    In addition to the $100 rewards, you'll receive a copy of "Americus," the new-ish graphic novel from MK Reed and Jonathan Hill! Fittingly enough, "Americus" tells the tale of Neal Barton, a small-town kid dealing with the fact that a group of locals want to ban his favorite fantasy series. See the connection?

    And because you'll no doubt want to stay up all night reading "Americus" once you crack it open, we're including another reward at this level: one 750 ml bottle of Black Blood of the Earth (aka "Weapons Grade Coffee"). Quite possibly the work of the Devil himself, this concoction contains roughly 40x as much caffeine as your typical cup o' joe. You can read all about on the Funranium Labs site: http://www.funraniumlabs.com/the-black-blood-of-the-earth/bbote-faq/
