Locking Final Addresses and FULLFILLMENT update!
over 1 year ago – Wed, Jun 22, 2022 at 01:06:38 AM

Hey Superfriends! 

You should have received a couple of important emails from me. 

1) A Backerkit Email asking you to lock your final shipping address. 

  • The physical books have arrived at Jason Inman HQ. (There's a picture below.) I'll be taking a vacation next week to visit my family, but after the 4th of July, I'll start packing Super Best Friend Issue 2 to hit the post offices! (It'll take 2-3 weeks for domestic and 30-60 days for international backers.) If you need to change your address or miss this update, please email me so I make sure you receive your physical books at the correct address. This will have us delivering the book 2 months early, which is fantastic! Or as some would say -- SUPER! 

2) Digital Rewards / Digital Copies of Super Best Friend have gone out!

  •  I just blasted out notification emails for the Super Best Friend #2 PDF so you can download it from Backerkit. If you can't find that email, you can always scoop them up at https://superbestfriend02.backerkit.com/.  Email me if you have any problems. 

3) Download all the EXTRA DIGITAL COMIC BONANZA BOOK PDFS from the Stretch Goal here.

Look at this beautiful second issue in the FLESH!

Thanks again, everyone.  I hope you enjoy reading the issue (s) as much as I have.

We're just starting production on ISSUE 3 -- the big finale where we say goodbye to Mattie and Terrific. So stay tuned for more announcements about the final Kickstarter soon!

Cheers

My good pal and Only Stupid Answers Podcast DJ Wooldridge has launched the second volume of his Hellbent Comic. Here's a little bit of info about it --

JEZI, the rebellious antichrist on the run, and her deadly defender NICK, return in this ALL-NEW 44 PAGE COMIC from co-writers DJ Wooldridge and Jayna July, interior artist Heather Vaughan (Kids on Bikes, Unmatched: Buffy the Vampire Slayer), colorist Francesca Cittarelli (Vampirella, Sacred Six), and letterer Haley Rose-Lyon (Insider Art), along with glorious guest artists Kaylee Rowena, Kayla Felty, Kam White, and Robin Tess!

Huzzah! The Book is at The PRINTER!
almost 2 years 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. 

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/theadept2/fa-sheng-origins-1-by-rylend-grant-and-dexter-wee?ref=4wwh5m

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 -- 

Scoop up the GRAPHIC NOVEL with George's Awesome Cover here!


ALSO -- good friend and amazing writer -- RYLEND GRANT is launching a new comic on Kickstarter with our old friends -- Immortal Studios!

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.

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.
