The kickstarter is over. I actually woke myself up five minutes before it ended to witness this happening. This is amazing. I’m kind of dizzy.
I didn’t think it would reach its initial goal, honestly. It ended three years ago, which is an eternity on the internet. And the books were more expensive than most comic books. And the funding goal was pretty high, too. But I knew I didn’t have anything to lose by trying. I figured maybe on the final day it would hit $20k. And it hit the goal on day three.
Then I thought, no way would we hit any of the stretch goals. I really wanted to draw a new chapter, but didn’t think I would get to. And then we hit not one, but two stretch goals and two new chapters. And it kept going until we hit this point.
Originally I was going to print 500 of each book, but I need more than that just to fill the KS orders, so I’ll be ordering 1,000 books. Whatever’s left over will be up for sale once all the KS orders are filled. The PDFs will be available forever.
I’ve been thinking lately about how after my house burned down, I got a check from the insurance company to replace all of my stuff. It was not as much as this kickstarter made. You guys, this kickstarter raised more money than the total cost of everything I own combined. What?
This is going to be a lot of work. Two new chapters to draw! There is a pretty good chance those two new chapters are going to delay the book by a couple months. I mentioned that possibility in the kickstarter from the beginning. I’ll be going as fast as I can, but 50 new pages of comics takes some time. I know it’ll be worth it, though.
I’m feeling some emotions I can’t quite deal with. I think they’re new. Brand new emotions. They are powerful. I feel like I created something lasting and meaningful. I love you guys so much. I really can’t express it in words. I’m just going to stop talking before I feel really silly.
