This piece by lieghm is it. The high point of my webcomics career.
I can pack it up now.
Go home, folks, it’s over!
Uh oh, it’s Sarah’s biggest nightmare! Joyce and Raidah have joined forces, and Joyce has frowned down and tatted up. This is truly the darkest timeline. Many thanks to Anthony Sylvan!
This is art from dmh3000. I don’t think any additional text is necessary, do you? I mean, it’s Dina riding a friggin’ Tyrannosaur. Through the sky. Adding words to this is like offering some Spam with your steak.
Woo, it’s art of Joyce in her dress (but with improvements that do not impress Billie) by Jackson Ferrell! It is great.
This storyline so far has been gifting me with fan art pretty solidly. I am in bliss.
A few weeks ago on Tumblr, me and Starline and Randy had a “pin-up week” where we drew our characters as sexy pin-ups. I got mine printed just in time to sell as double-sided post cards at San Diego Comic-Con, and I have some leftovers to sell to you, the public!
If you want to see the original pin-ups, they are archived at my DeviantArt account.
There are five post cards with a pin-up on each side, for a total of ten pin-ups. The set comes with SarahJoyce/Ruth, Walky/Dorothy, Sal/Billie, Ethan/Jason, and Amber/Mike. Find them in the store!
I got a two copies each of DoA Book 1 and the Shortpacked! Book 1 reprint from my publisher today. THEY ARE FANTASTIC OH MY GOD. Especially Dumbing of Age. It is the best book I have ever done, ever. I want to lick it. And I probably could. This thing feels waterproof.
I can’t wait until I get the full shipment of these in about a month or so, so you can have them, too.
Man, you guys are super awesome. We had an original goal of $11,000 to print DoA Book 1, passed that in a few days, passed our stretch goal of $20k to reprint Shortpacked! Book 1, and within a second of the end of the Kickstarter, we’d hit $30k.
Originally I’d set another stretch goal for $30k, promising to print Roomies! Book 2 if that happened, but a few days ago I realized I’d gotten soooo many pledges I needed to print more books, and would have to cannibalize some of those funds to print more. But since we passed $30 anyway, I’ll see how much money I have after the dust settles (you know, Kickstarter fees, Amazon payment fees, taxes) and see if we can’t do it anyway. I’ll keep you posted.
There was a very sweet moment, like 4 minutes until the end of the Kickstarter period, where we had 666 backers. And then some jerks had to ruin it by giving me more money! Oh well.
But wow. 670 backers. Last year’s Kickstarter for Shortpacked! Book 4 only had about 250 backers. This, uh, kind of triples the amount of books I’ve ever sent out, ever. This will be daunting. Please have patience with me once these books arrive in my possession, for I am but one dude, and you are legion.
Time to gather your names and submit the final DoA book PDF for printing! We have done good.
