Two guys run a bike shop and face hurdles in the store and on the road... Read the adventures of Yehuda Moon in beautiful perfectly bound, full-color books.
We offered 'Yehuda Moon & The Kickstand Cyclery' Volumes 1 - 4 as a successful Kickstarter project last year and we're here to do it again with the new Volume 5 that collects comics from 2012!
Pick your pledge: volume 5 by itself or get volume 5 PLUS volumes 1 - 4 at a special holiday gift price.
We're also offering Volumes 1 - 4 as a holiday pack that will mail separately from Volume 5 in November, 2012 - in time for holiday purchases!
The first album of collected comic strips contains nearly 350 strips from January 1, 2008 through December 31, 2008. Meet the gang at the Kickstand Cyclery: Yehuda's the utilitarian advocate; Joe's the go-fast pragmatist. Thistle Gin, a wrench and cycling mom.
The second album of collected comic strips contains nearly 320 strips from January 1, 2009 through December 31, 2009. Meet Sister Sprocket, Kevlar Bead (the owner of Rival Cycles), Sweetroll, and read the 'Arborium' and 'Sidewalk' stories.
The third album of collected comic strips and contains nearly 350 strips from January 1, 2010 through December 31, 2010. After being driven off the road, Yehuda mends a broken wing, gets a new bicycle, leads a Vehicular Cycling class, plays bike polo, and hosts the open house to end all open houses.
The fourth album of collected comic strips and contains nearly 300 strips from January 1, 2011 through October 6, 2011. Joe works for Rival Cycles, Thistle commutes to a cubicle job, Yehuda is up to his usual advocacy hijinx and the Kickstand Cyclery is once more in danger.
A Kickstand Cyclery bookmark is included, as is a Yehuda Moon sticker measuring 3" x 2".
Each book measures 8" x 10", is in full color and has about 96 pages (around 300 comics per book). Cardstock cover.
The fifth volume will ship to you by February, 2012. If you order a holiday pack (a great gift idea!), it will be mailed in November 2012.
If you would like to donate more than the bundle of books you're interested in, but don't want multiple copies of the bundles sent to you, please follow up with an email message to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your contribution past the amount of the bundle will help further the project's goal and we'll thank you for your patronage!

Risks and challenges
With our last successfully funded Kickstarter project (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/yehudamoon/kickstand-comics-volumes-2-3-and-4), we printed the three volumes (plus a second printing of the first volume) with a printer we have a relationship with and delivered books to all our readers weeks ahead of schedule.
The risk is making sure the printer receives the original PDF pages for the fifth volume on time so that printing and delivery can take place before the promised February 2013 due date. The content is complete, and based on the last project (which was THREE books, not one), we should have no problem completing this task.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
