Announcing Phase II of the Ace Kilroy Fundraising Campaign!
We launched our initial Kickstarter effort the same day as Ace Kilroy went live--October 31, 2011--and while we received many high-profile raves (from places like The Onion's A.V. Club, Robot 6, and Geekadelphia), in the end we just didn't have time to get the word out to enough people to reach our financial goal.
On April 16, we will be starting another Kickstarter drive, where you'll have the chance to pre-order a copy of Ace Kilroy, Volume 1, featuring the complete Dracula story arc plus bonus, behind-the-scenes material. And of course there will be other goodies offered, as well!
Ace Kilroy will be going on hiatus during that time, to give new readers a chance to catch up on the strip and see what it's all about. But we will be returning before you know it, the date of which will be announced here and on AceKilroy.com on April 16.
During the hiatus, and concurrent with the new Kickstarter drive, we plan to try and get Ace Kilroy mentioned in as many comic book news sites, blogs, and print outlets as possible, hopefully connecting with a whole new audience that have yet to check us out. And that's where you come in!
If there's a blog or news site (print or web) that you think would be interested in talking to Dan and me and/or reviewing Ace Kilroy, drop us a line with that site's contact info, and we'll do the rest. Any tip that leads to a mention--no matter how small--will earn you a special mention here on the blog and a hearty thanks from Ace himself!
Dan and I cannot thank you enough for your support and enthusiasm for Ace Kilroy. We are having an absolute blast doing the strip and, judging by the overwhelmingly positive responses we've been getting, we think that comes across in the final product. And if we can get just enough people to support what we're doing, we plan to do Ace Kilroy for a long, long time.
Keep 'em flying, boys and girls!
