2nd Day Down
9 months ago – Thu, Jul 02, 2020 at 10:13:51 PM

Hey everyone!

We're towards the end of Day Two, and we're still kinda high from such an amazing launch you made happen yesterday. We just hit 350 backers! Can't wait to see how many more we can add. Because the more we get, the more cool stuff we can add to the experience (so tell all your friends)!

Having hit our first two stretch goals so quickly, we were admittedly caught shy of having our next goal completely figured out. We realize we hinted at it being unlocked at the $16k milestone (which we're nearly at), but we hadn't exactly nailed down the details... until now. The next goal will be really cool, and we're just waiting on the mock-up to share with you. We should have it ready to post tomorrow... hopefully before we actually hit that mark! And we're already looking ahead at locking down the next two, y'know, just in case. ;)

Did you catch the new video interview with Zep and Dominique talking about the project for you, the backing audience? We added it to the top of the campaign story this morning, but if you missed it there, here it is:

We'll have more stuff like this to share over the next couple of weeks throughout the campaign -- videos, galleries, interviews, etc. 

Stay tuned for some more cool stuff ahead!

10 more added to Original Drawing level!

A quick update to let everyone know that Dominique was cool enough to agree to 10 more sketches in the Original Drawing level!

These went fast, so if you are interested and missed out on the first 10, you may want to upgrade soon!

Also, we just posted a new video from Magnetic Press's publisher Mike Kennedy about the project, Magnetic, and why Kickstarter. Check it out!

THE BEST FIRST DAY
9 months ago – Wed, Jul 01, 2020 at 02:05:24 AM

Wow. You guys. WOW. We are BLOWN AWAY...

We had humble hopes we'd make and exceed our conservative starting goal, but didn't for a minute expect to hit 200% in the FIRST SIX HOURS. And with 23 days left to go, we don't dare jinx anything by hoping much higher! 

We hit our first stretch goal for the silver debossed logo earlier today, and we're JUST NOW hit our second stretch goal (arguably the first-coolest): the limited edition production sketchbook!

This 32-page saddle-stitched booklet will be 6x9" with linen cardstock cover featuring Peach Momoko's cover art, featuring tons of character sketches, designs, page in process, reference photos, Zep's original storyboards, etc. And the best part is it will be FREE to all backers! (Digital backers will get a PDF version.) This sketchbook will also be extremely limited to only however many copies are required to fulfill this campaign, so it will certainly become collectible as well!

We'll reveal the next stretch goal very soon! (You'll have to forgive us for any delay -- we sincerely didn't expect to get this far in the first day...)

For those of you interested in the creative thought process behind the project, CBR.com ran a great interview with Zep and Dominique earlier today -- check it out!

A few of you have raised some very valid Qs already today which we will revise in the campaign story, but in brief:

  • RETAILER TIER: We should (have) point(ed) out that you must be a verifiable commercial reseller to take advantage of this discounted tier. We will ask for proof of business in the form of business listing, website, and Tax ID/EIN. This tier is intended to support the retail community during this challenging marketplace, so we hope you understand. If you don't have verifiable reseller credentials, we will adjust your reward accordingly.
  • SHIPPING: A few of you from abroad have asked about shipping estimates -- we totally understand wanting to avoid surprises! We will generate an estimated shipping matrix soon, but please beware: it will only be an estimate! By calculating shipping afterward, the intention is to charge you only what is actually required, rather than us having to pre-charge a grossly overestimated guess upfront. That said... international shipping will still be pricey. It always is, and there's not much we can do about. BUT... we are looking into some creative strategies to perhaps pre-ship a small bulk to a fulfillment partner in a popular territory who can forward rewards for a much more affordable price. While we could have (should have?) explored that sooner, if we can figure it out an affordable and efficient solution before the campaign is through, we make a big announcement to let everyone know!

So thanks again everyone, and please -- TELL ALL YOUR FRIENDS! We've got more exciting stuff coming up, so stay tuned!
