It’s been a busy few days since the last update. First, though it was a weekend ago, thank you to everyone who came by to say hi at ECCC. As always it is thrilling to meet readers in person, and nice to have some extended conversations about comics with so many of you.
The other big news is that after a lot of work, I’m happy to announce that the Mare Internum book Kickstarter is going live on Thursday:
I’ll have just a few limited and discounted book tiers available, so you can sign up for general news for the heads up of when the campaign goes live so you can nab a deal. This book is going to be about 270+ pages of content, extra pages, etc, and there are a TON of great add-ons that will be automatically added to the pledge tiers if the campaign ends up funding past my minimum goal. I have been working my ass off on this campaign and I’m very excited to bring it to you.
A lot of the pauses here have been because the logistics of designing a book, getting quotes for all the ridiculous things I want, setting up agreements with guest artists, constructing a viable Kickstarter and making one billion animations and images to go with everything surprisingly takes a while for one person to finish. I’m sure it’s been fairly trying for you as readers to put up with me continually running away to do behind-the-scenes work instead of posting comics. But everything I had on my plate is pretty much finished now, and all that remains is to actually finish making and posting the last 30ish pages of the comic here :] It’s the last step in a plan I’ve been slowly hatching since last summer, so I’m gonna give it all I got.
See you next update,
