Now that the Sunnyville Vol. 4 Kickstarter has ended, it’s time to announce the next one.
On Saturday, April 7, we will launch the Sunnyville Stories #17 Kickstarter!
This Kickstarter is intended to fund Sunnyville Stories #17, an exciting story titled “Some Guys Have All The Luck”. (I’ll have more on this story later.)
The goal for this Kickstarter will be US$300, a modest goal but achievable. Here’s a quick breakdown of the planned funds.
The cost of a micro run of 50 copies for Sunnyville #17 (estimated at no more than 36 pages) will run around $98.50. Shipping those comics to me will cost about $13.65. First class mail to 20 backers (mailing the comics to said backers) will run a cost of $57.80. International first class mail to 4 backers (I have had backers in Canada and Britain) will run about $24.00. The cost of padded envelopes goes for about $60.00 and I do have a local supplier on that.
That brings the total so far to about $253.95. Adding in the fees for processing and the Kickstarter cut plus a little extra to cover anything unseen brings the grand total up to $300. Those of you who remember the Sunnyville Stories Super Special Kickstarter will recall that funding goal was slightly higher.
Our goal is $300 but there are at least two stretch goals planned. The rewards that are planned? They are as follows.
As little as $1 will get our thanks and your name printed in the comic.
A pledge of $4 gets your name in the comic plus a free PDF copy
A pledge of $8 gets your name in the comic, a free PDF copy and a print copy mailed out to you anywhere in the world.
For retailers, there’ll be a pledge of $25 available for you. That will get you about 4 print copies of Sunnyville #17 to sell in your shop as well as your name printed in the comic AND you’ll get some neat point-of-sale items to promote the work to customers (flyers, posters, etc). This however will be limited to about 3 backers.
There’ll be a $50 pledge level too for about 3 to 4 backers. That is still being worked out at the time of this writing. There may be other rewards too including early bird specials.
Remember – the Sunnyville #17 Kickstarter launches on Sat. April 7, 2018 and has a goal of $300. Stay tuned as I’ll have some more info on the story itself.
