Just as I thought this Kickstarter for 27, A Comic Anthology: ROCK HARD Edition was going to be the death of me, we almost proved it the day we got funded! Spoiler alert: NERD CHURCH Podcast saved the day, AND WE ARE FUNDED–but I had to have a heart attack first!
So for about 16 hours 6 nights ago, we were funded. FUNDED! I posted a celebratory update on Kickstarter and Facebook and everywhere talking about this great news and our new stretch goals and then the worst thing that could possibly happen happened: someone CANCELLED their pledge, and we were short of the goal again! Thankfully, one of our Backers, Clergyman Michael, had been kind to back us the previous week AND plug us on the Nerd Church podcast just the night before. Had that not happened, Sean, also of the order, might not have swooped in just in time to SAVE. THE. DAY! and put us over our goal. Again! Talk about divine intervention!
So we find ourselves indebted and grateful to all the clergy over at NERD CHURCH (especially Michael and Sean) and have established “the NCP VIP PASS” reward tier on our Kickstarter page, in their honor. Five lucky backers will get the signed and numbered book, a PDF copy to share with a friend, and a sweet skull and microphone pendant to honor their favorite #27Club member, Jim Morrison! Get thee to NERD CHURCH! And back us today!
Here is the link to the Nerd Church podcast for your listening pleasure. They plug us at the end. I’m not even going to tell you where to skip to, though, because this whole show is fun–have a listen:
27, A Comic Anthology is a collection of original comics and art inspired by music’s infamous “27 Club.” An iconic group of music artists achieved musical stardom early and then died at the age of 27, including greats like Kurt Cobain, Amy Winehouse, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix, among many others. The anthology features stories and art from over 54 creators, and the #ROCKHARD Edition (a signed and numbered premium hardcover, limited to 1000 copies) is a Staff Pick on Kickstarter now!
