Add-ons: what'll be available and how it's gonna work
4 months ago – Thu, Jul 23, 2020 at 07:06:26 PM

Hey everyone!

It's the final 24 hour stretch, and we realize we haven't completely explained our Add-on plans, particularly in light of the many cool stretch goal extras that have been added since the campaign started. Here's the skinny:

  • We will be offering additional copies of items through Backerket when the campaign is over. There, you can customize your reward package and specify shipping preferences at checkout. (Postage will then be calculated on the total weight of your completed package and you'll be charged for any balance due.)
  • If you would like additional copies of the book, you can certainly do this by raising your pledge by $25 and messaging us to make note of that extra copy order, or you can simply wait and add it along with any other add-on items offered through Backerkit when we send out the fulfillment surveys.
  • Each backer will get ONE of each of the four unlocked stretch goal items with their pledge package. This means: 1x sketchbook, 1x coin, 1x artbook, and 1x soundtrack download code. Those free stretch goal items are thank you gifts for your pledge, and not per-copy of the book ordered. (Signed book plates will be provided per-copy, however.) That's like $50 worth of free stuff for all 1000+ of you ($50,000 in free stuff?!), so thank you and you're welcome. :)
  • You will be able to purchase extra copies of the sketchbook, art book, and soundtrack through Backerkit. (At the moment, we are not planning to offer extra coins since these are relatively expensive and will be very limited... plus, we have other future plans that will leverage their value over time... So treasure the one you get! It may be worth even more down the road!)
  • Extra sketchbooks will be $10 each.
  • Extra art books will be $15 each.
  • Extra soundtrack DL codes will be $9 each.

We will also have copies of GHOST MONEY and INFINITY 8 vol.1 hardcovers available to add through Backerkit. Possibly some other things that come up as relevant as time passes as well.

Hope that all makes sense! Feel free to ask Qs!

Last stretch goal met! It's the final 48 hours!
4 months ago – Thu, Jul 23, 2020 at 04:00:37 PM

Hey everyone!

Sorry we haven't updated since the "pre-big-stretch goal" days... we hoped we'd make it by closing time, but we made it three days ahead of that! So yep -- everyone's getting a really slick, perfect bound 9x6" landscape artbook with brand new pieces by 8 amazing guest artists! Woot!

So what's next? A tall martini. Not for all of you -- for us when all this is over. This kind of campaign is exhausting! We thought about putting another carrot on a stick for the final push, but frankly... we're doing a lot thanks to all of you! The sketchbook, the coin, the soundtrack, now the art book... we're excited beyond words to deliver all of that alone. Who knows, we may rope in a couple more fantastic guest artists we've been chatting with, but those'll be a nice surprise if/when they happen.

So to summarize, here's what everyone is getting FREE on top of your regular (digital and physical) pledge rewards: 

  • Upgraded paperweight to 140gsm
  • embossed, foil-stamped logo
  • 6x9" ashcan sketchbook (with Peach Momoko's cover art on the cover)
  • 2" metal collectible coin featuring Peach's art
  • Original BGM Soundtrack
  • Perfect-bound 9x6" landscape artbook with awesome guest artists

That's, like $50 worth of bonus stuff for FREE! And all of those extras are limited to just this campaign, so factor in that collectability and you're coming out of this investment pretty far ahead...

As a side note, Magnetic Press has a 'virtual booth' in this week's virtual COMIC-CON@HOME -- check out the show's floor map to see what cool stuff is being offered, or just go to Magnetic's CC@HOME landing page for all the good stuff straight from the tap!

THANKS AGAIN, EVERYONE! KEEP SPREADING THE WORD!

Bleeding Cool broke the news -- full Art Book lineup revealed!
5 months ago – Sat, Jul 18, 2020 at 01:07:52 AM

Hey everyone!

Well our revealing-one-artist-a-day plan sorta went out the window when we agreed to let Bleeding Cool have the scoop on the full line up, announced on their site today!

The full list (as of today) includes:

  • Bengal
  • Nathan Fox
  • Oliver Vatine
  • Fane
  • Miki Montllo
  • Ashley A. Woods
  • Tony Sandoval
  • Ben Caldwell
The full list, as revealed on Bleeding Cool today!

I say "as of today" as there are still a few others that we've been talking to, and who knows... we may still be able to get them on board...

But don't worry, we're not gonna add another stretch goal! Getting this one at $37k would be fantastic as it is!

So share the word with your friends, family, coworkers, dog walkers, dental hygienist, whoever! Help us make this cool thing!

A legend steps to the stage...
5 months ago – Fri, Jul 17, 2020 at 04:50:04 PM

Hi, everyone!

Today's guest artist reveal is a big one -- the legendary OLIVIER VATINE has joined the project!

While he may be a bit more legendary in Europe for his massive body of influential sci-fi comics, American audiences should recognize him for his work on the seminal STAR WARS: HEIR TO THE EMPIRE and last year's NIOURK (as well as Magnetic's INFINITY 8 series). He also co-founded the amazing Comix Buro artist collective fostering more amazing artists than you can shake a stick at. This guy is the King. And he's on board this art book if we hit the goal!

The future may also be surreal

Hello everyone!

Back with a quick update to reveal the next guest artist in the Future Paris Art Book stretch goal as promised: five-time Eisner Award nominee TONY SANDOVAL! 

It's no secret how much we love Tony's art and his horrible-adorable blend of surreal with the cute. If you're not familiar with his work, we strongly recommend picking up DOOMBOY, RENDEZ-VOUS IN PHOENIX, or WATERSNAKES (all available from the Magnetic Press webstore). We can't wait to see what he pictures the next century to hold...!

See you tomorrow for the next exciting guest artist announcement!
