Huzzah! The Book is at The PRINTER!
12 days ago – Thu, May 05, 2022 at 07:47:36 PM

Hello Super Friends!

We have some exciting news! Our wonderful printer COMIC IMPRESSIONS has the final files, and they are sending me proofs of the printed comic as we speak. Once those are approved, the books will be printed and one step close to arriving in your super hands!


Currently, there are ONLY 33 BACKERS who still haven't completed their survey.  And I hate knowing that we have super friends who won't get their rewards, so if that's you -- head here -- https://superbestfriend02.backerkit.com/ -- and fix that mistake ASAP!


***Also apologies for my delay on fulfilling the Script Reviews/Zoom Calls tiers, I'll be reaching out to those backers over the next few weeks to start scheduling things***


In the Meantime -- three of my awesome creator friends have launched new projects...

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ronrandall/trekker-blood-in-the-wind

Ron Randall is talented creator, a great kickstarter mentor and a true powerhouse of crowdfunding. I've been a big fan of TREKKER for years, but don't take my word for this high quality book...

From his campaign -- Sci-fi bounty hunter Mercy St. Clair's quest leads to a deadly duel in the icy clouds of a remote, frozen world. 120+page graphic novel. Mercy's quest to resist the oppressive, system-ruling Council leads her to a remote, frozen world. There she finds new allies, faces old enemies, and fights a deadly duel in the frozen skies to determine the fate of the entire rebellion! Like every other book in the series, TREKKER: BLOOD IN THE WIND works as an excellent introduction to Mercy and her world. Each volume tells a complete adventure: Beginning, middle, and end. When you put the tales all together, they just paint a deeper, richer portrait of Mercy and her world. BACK IT HERE.

Fa Sheng is a death-cheating, mind-bending Shaolin Master… but he carved a long bloody road to get there. Fa Sheng’s story begins in the latter days of the 19th century when the propaganda and carnage of China's Boxer Uprising force him to reevaluate his purpose in life, to dedicate himself to helping those in need. It isn’t easy. Between Fa Sheng and his goal of enlightenment stand ruthless adversaries, backstabbing power grabbers and cowardly charlatans… any of whom would gladly dispose of anyone in their way. Authored by my friend, screenwriter, Rylend Grant, this is a book of high adventure, and highly recommended. BACK IT HERE

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1227066666/impossible-2c-impossible-jones-and-polecat-team-up

LOOK AT THAT COVER! LOOK AT IT AGAIN! The wonderfully friendly and supportive KARL KESEL is back at it again for another issue of Impossible Jones. This series has been non-stop fun, and any fan of Super Best Friend is going to adore this book. Impossible Jones is a thief turned superhero, and each of her super powered guest stars have been a riot. The synopsis -- A story of GHOSTS… and other things that haunt us. DELUXE DOUBLE-SIZED comic by KESEL (King Shark, Harley Quinn) & HAHN (Batman '66). BACK IT HERE. 


That's it!

Thank you super friends.

IN OTHER NEWS -- 

SUPER BEST FRIEND ARTIST GEORGE KAMBADAIS HAS DRAWN AN EXCITING COVER FOR ANOTHER COMIC !!!!

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/linneycomics/alter-ego-0?ref=20qnso

Welcome to the world of THE DARING DOUBLE LIFE OF ACE ADAMS, an action-packed, 100-page all-new, original graphic novel by Eisner-nominated writer Nate Cosby (Cow Boy), artist Jacob Edgar (James Bond), colorist Kike J. Diaz (Red Sonja), and letterer Rus Wooton (The Walking Dead). A Kickstarter for ALTER EGO is now live from Linney Incorporated, featuring variant covers by superstar artists Wilfredo Torres, Phil Hester, Declan Shalvey, Chris Eliopoulos, and SOZOMAIKA, and a main cover from artist and co-creator Jacob Edgar.

In THE DARING DOUBLE LIFE OF ACE ADAMS, LA’s scandalous crime wave inspires two strikingly different heroes to spring into action. By day, the streets are protected by Whiz-Bang, a grinning, gregarious defender of goodness. By night, the City of Angels is defended by an entirely different kind of hero: The Black Dog appears in a cloud of smoke, a mysterious vigilante determined to strike fear in cowardly criminals. And unbeknownst to the mayor, the police force, the entire city…these radically different heroes share an incredible secret: They are the same man.

Support our FELLOW SUPER FRIENDS --

Happy Friday Super Friends!

(This update is not an April Fools joke.)


We have officially sent out the all BackerKit Surveys to our backers! You should see an email in your inbox that looks a little like this...

The emails will be coming from "Jason Inman" so be sure to check your spam filters or make sure the correct email address is connected to your Kickstarter account. 

We need EVERYONE to fill out their Backerkit surveys as soon as possible so we can get your correct names for the THANK YOU PAGE in our PDFS, and get all our item counts correct for the PRINTER!


The DEADLINE for these surveys is 4/14/2022. So, you have 2 weeks to fill it out. 

(What happens if I miss the deadline?) -- I'm so glad you asked!

If you miss the deadline -- we will use your Kickstarter Account Name for the Thank You Page, BUT... we will not be able to send you any of your rewards until you complete the survey. So it's important to fill out that survey as soon as you see it. 


And if you ever lose the link to your survey you can go here -- https://superbestfriend02.backerkit.com/ or email me on Kickstarter and I will happily send it to you. 


QUICK NOTE FOR APPLE ID BACKERS FROM BACKERKIT -- 

Backers who have pledged to the campaign using their AppleID but haven't completely set up their Apple Pay account (linking their email address to their Apple Wallet) will have issues receiving their emails from BackerKit.

Those backers have a @privaterelay.appleid.com email address and will need to reach out to the creator team or BackerKit Support to update their email address in BackerKit.

You'll be able to reach out to BackerKit Support by clicking the "need help" link from the Lost Survey page:  https://www.backerkit.com/are_you_a_backer

Please update your Apple Pay email as soon as possible to prevent this from happening in the future.


If you have any questions please feel free to shoot me a message on Kickstarter and I'll be happy to help you! And don't worry, I will pop back in here to send a reminder a few days before the deadline.

WE DID IT, SUPER FRIENDS! (Next Steps)
2 months ago – Fri, Mar 04, 2022 at 07:42:15 PM

THANK YOU. 

All the months of writing, prepping and promotion paid off thanks to all of you. Plus, I'm now super excited we get to complete our story in Super Best Friend #3! So, I can't say this enough, but THANK YOU. 


WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?

Well, I'm going to take a few days to recover from the Kickstarter train and then... begin fullfillment.


Here's a rough schedule of how fulfillment of this project will happen.

  • Mid-March - Kickstarter Funds are released to me
  • Late-March - BackerKit Surveys will go out. (I use Backerkit for my surveys.)
  • Last week of March -- I will reach out to all ZOOM CALLS, SCRIPT REVIEWS,  PODCAST ADS, and ART COMISSIONS, PATREON BONUS Backers, ETC and get everything squared away those Backers. 
  • 2nd Week of April -- SURVEYS due. (If you don't fill out your survey, I can't include you in the THANK YOU PAGE!) ALSO -- if you used AN APPLE PAY ACCOUNT for your KS pledge -- you will need to change that as BackerKit and KS doesn't forward all messages to those accounts for some reason. FYI!
  • 3rd Week of April - Book goes to Printer. (This process takes at minimum 30 days because of the paper shortage now). 
  • Insert 2 Month -- $#it happens" buffer -- it's a bonkers world!
  • Mid-July - Book Printed and shipped to us
  • Mid-August - We get all the books and fullfillment begins! All the books are shipped and the backers are happy! (I usually allow a month for this process to complete because myself and my wife will be the only two people packaging all the rewards.
  • Mid -September -- Expected delivery to US backers
  • Late-Septemebr -- Expected delivery for International Backers - Estimated 4 Weeks
  • We will start working on the next Kickstarter for Issue 3 and continue telling you THANK YOU until you're sick of it. YOU HELPED US DO THIS, AND WE...

THANK YOU SO MUCH ❤️!
