We’ve hit $1,611 over at Kickstarter, which is $14 away from 25%. This is awesome! Thanks so much to everyone.
Thanks especially to Triell Freschi, who pledged $150 for the female name and likeness in the comic. This means if you want to appear in one of the stories, your only opportunity left is the comic’s male name and likeness.There are also still two $75 slots open to be drawn around a campfire by cover artist Amy Houser, an illustration that will be included in the magazine.
This is the last day of the first week of the Kickstarter. I am really happy with where we are at. Now I’d like to push ahead to $2,000, which is just over 30%. If we hit that by 11:59 p.m. Eastern on Wednesday, I will post three quick stories of murder and mayhem in Tampa, Fla., in the summer of 2005. I worked as an intern for the St. Petersburg Times that summer, and I mostly did crime reporting. These three stories are the reasons I decided I couldn’t do crime reporting for very long. One of them involves a wood chipper.
