First up: Atomic Robo Presents Real Science Adventures #1 really for real comes out March 28th. That’s this Wednesday! Be sure to pick it up locally or online (I swear the real cover is better than that).
Each issue should be $2.50 in print. Or maybe $2.75? We were talking about $2.50 internally, but I’ve seen it listed for $2.75 too. I don’t know which is which, I just write these stupid things! Either way though, that’s at least 30% cheaper than most corporate comics. As well, RSA #1 will be available on all iOS and Android devices for $1.99.
Somewhat relatedly: did you know Atomic Robo and the Flying She-Devils of the Pacific #1 is available for pre-order? Well, it is! It comes out in June, but pre-ordering now is the best way to guarantee you’ll get it at your shop. If you don’t have one, you can reserve a copy online!
Second: I think it’s basically impossible for the Robo Kickstarter to hit its next stretch goal, but that’s okay! It’s hard to put a negative spin on the phrase, “Gosh, you guys only pushed us to over 500% of our goal.” We are beyond delighted and honored by the support you’ve shown for this project.
But! I will reiterate this: you should now consider the Kickstarter to be your big chance to grab some one-of-a-kind Atomic Robo gifts. The rewards The Fictory is offering are h-o-t hawt. Most recently they added a new $55 package including a DVD, art book, and T-shirt. There’s also the all new a la carte option.
Lastly: I’m writing a pulp novel!
Well, maybe. The fine folks at Evil Hat are experimenting with a fiction line for their pulp RPG setting Spirit of the Century. As of this writing they’ve already hit a few stretch goals and, long story short, the $10 level gets you Chuck Wendig’s Dinocalypse trilogy in PDF/ebook. Oh, and there are print edition options at higher tiers, of course. If we can get this thing ~$200 more, that’ll take it to the $15,000 level, and then I get to write a Benjamin Hu novel! If you’re not familiar with Benjamin, he’s sort of Sherlock Holmes crossed with Indiana Jones crossed with an international conspiracy, ancient artifacts, cults, word domination, y’know how it goes.
The extra cool thing? That $10 for the three Dinocalypse books? It also gets you every book funded by the project. You could be getting four or five books for the price of, well, one. Check out the other rewards while you’re at it!
