NORSE: Dawn Of The Shield Maiden 1 Pre-Order Update

Hello NORSE fans,
First, I would like to thank those that have already placed a pre-order for James LeMay’s NORSE comic. The DELUXE edition is almost SOLD OUT and the REGULAR edition isn’t far behind. 

On Sunday, August 10th we will stop taking pre-orders for NORSE. This means August 10th will be your last day to get either book for the reduced, pre-order price. It will also be the last day for you to be entered in the raffle for your chance to win and ORIGINAL PAGE from the comic. 

For those that have already purchased a DELUXE copy of NORSE, your name has been given to James and he will choose a winner on August 11th. If you placed a purchase request for a copy of NORSE but have not paid yet, your name will NOT be forwarded to be entered in the raffle. PLEASE, those that ordered a copy of NORSE, you need to follow the instructions on the invoice. If you did not get an invoice please check your spam folder. Unfortunately the invoices sometimes end up there.

NORSE: Dawn Of The Shield Maiden will be shipping in AUGUST ! 

Thank you all again for your support.

ARSENIC LULLABY Kickstarter ending soon

          In my last blog regarding the ARSENIC LULLABY The Devil's Only Friend Kickstarter I emphasized that it only took $10 to back this project and get a book (where most of the Kickstarter projects make you ante up $25 for a 24 page floppy). I thought everyone reading this blog and two of their friends should get in at this level. I've changed my mind on this.
          I still think you and two of your friends should back this project, but go the little extra and get in at the $15 level.  You're asking yourself why I changed my stance on this. What difference does it make which cover you get and why pay the $5 more for the "exclusive" cover. Well, here's my reasoning. WHEN the kickstarter hits $13,000 stretch goal (just $1433 away, as of this writing) everyone that passed on that one hackneyed comic from the 'big two' and went for the $15 pledge is going to get a HARDCOVER book. Those that only pledge at the $10 level so they could keep their run of "Banal-Man" complete will only get the softcover (but equally enjoyable on the inside).
          With a little under 2 days left we only need 95 backers at the $15 level to get a nice hardcover edition to sit on the shelf. Doesn't your bookshelf deserve that after all it's done for you?
          In my last blog i also brought up the READING RAINBOW kickstarter (no link provided, find it for yourself). I find it very curious that Seth MacFarlane backed that kickstarter but has steered well clear of the ARSENIC LULLABY project. You have to ask yourself why a man so revered as a comedic icon won't go near ARSENIC LULLABY. My guess is he is intimidated.

  The READING RAINBOW KICKSTARTER PROJECT is great and all. But what are you gonna put in front of your nose once you get all of your phonics organized in your brain?  The choice should be obvious, ARSENIC LULLABY's The Devil's Only Friend KICKSTARTER
  When it comes to ARSENIC LULLABY I think most folks fall in to one of three categories. The first category are those that have been following the work of Douglas Paszkiewicz for some stretch during his 12+ years as a comic book professional. During those years you know that Douglas has been publishing his own comics, his way, and been a regular at any comic convention worth attending. It comes as no surprise to you that he has been nominated for several industry awards, including the Eisner and Harvey. You’re also aware of his 6 years working for MAD Magazine and his recent writing contribution to Comedy Central’s TRIP TANK. You are also probably one of the 251 backers (as of this writing) that have already pushed the current Kickstarter project well beyond it’s goal and helped the FIRST ARSENIC LULLABY KICKSTARTER get double it’s goal. 
  The second group has heard about all of the above, but is still on the fence about jumping on the A.L. bandwagon. Any one element of the above should tell you this is a book you need to have on your shelf. But it obviously isn’t, since you’re still on the fence. Let me put it this way, if you read comics there is absolutely NO REASON NOT to back this project.  For $10 ( thats a trip to a fast food restaurant or your local cafe or two banal comics from “the big two”, YMMV) you can back this project and get a PHYSICAL copy of the comic.  I’ve seen a lot of kickstarter project where you don’t start to get anything until you pledge $25+ for a 24 page COMIC BOOK!  Douglas does it right. $10 gets you a comic delivered to your door. No tax, no shipping and handling add ons. Go to your local comic shop and see how far $10 will get you.  Not to mention, as of this writing (251 backers at $9724) EVERYONE that has pledged $5 or more is getting 3 trading cards, a parking pass and drink coaster. And the more people you and I get to join the more stuff we get. That $10 is taking you a LONG WAY now, isn’t it? Do me a favor, when you go to your LCS and put all of that stuff on the counter and hand the owner $10 to pay, make a video so I can see him laugh in your face. What’s READING RAINBOW going to give you for $10? a tweet and wallpaper for your computer (probably in the wrong ratio)
The third group are those that know Douglas and DON’T like him. This is the group that should be pledging the most! Why is that? Because with every pledge we get that much closer to the next stretch goal. Why is this important? Each stretch goal we reach is another project Douglas has to do, another headache he has to contend with, more money out of his pocket. Your pledge may very well be the one that makes him say, “I AM NEVER DOING THIS AGAIN!” That is something you should be proud of.
So, there you have it. EVERYONE should be making a pledge soon. If you don’t get in now you’re gonna end up paying $14.95, plus tax and shipping to someone smarter than you. You don’t want to do that, do you?
