about 1 month ago – Wed, Mar 13, 2024 at 09:12:34 PM

Issue 01 Digital is out now! Please make sure you filled out your backerkit survey. We still have around 90 people who haven't completed it (yikes!). Please reach out to [email protected] if you haven't received your survey in your email. We will get you a link to complete it.

You should be notified of an available download. Also, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE check your spam folder for any Backerkit e-mails. Too often we get an e-mail requesting help, but it's because the e-mails, for whatever reason, are going to spam folders. Please check there before reaching out to us. Thanks!

Can't wait to see what you all think! 

Also, if you haven't noticed, Vanya: The Lost Warrior #7 has just launched and there's still time to take advantage of the Day 1 Promotion. 

Also, be sure to get notified forHyperGeist #4when it launches in three weeks.

Almost there!

Great news, guys! We are nearly finished with the lettering for XenoGeist. The PDF should likely be out next week. 

Here's a video update sharing the Black Box and examples of its content. Be sure to follow our substack to be notified when we go live on Patreon so you can start getting the monthly exclusive cover! 

(please ignore the mess in the background as much as I have)

Surveys have been sent! Cupid Preview!
2 months ago – Tue, Feb 13, 2024 at 08:33:38 AM

We will keep surveys open for the next month, which should give everyone time to complete them and cover the shipping costs. 

Issue 1 PDF will be here before you know it. We've been moving fast. Cari, the interior line artist, has already completed her work and is moving on to HyperGeist 4, then switching back to XenoGeist 2. She stays busy! 

Thank you all once again for your support! I will keep you updated when we have more information. 

Also, just letting you know that we had three creator-owned properties launch on Kickstarter today. 

Please support Scott Wilke (writer of XenoGeist, HyperGeist, Bobby Jo, Cereal Killer, Welcome to Monster World, Undercity Tales, and more) with his new campaign CUPID. This is a stand-alone one-shot story that is set in the universe that started with Periwinkle. Holiday-themed/mythical characters like Santa, Krampus, Tooth Fairy, Boogeyman, and Cupid are all given a modern spin with plenty of humor and gore baked in. 

THANK YOU!

Well, that was incredible! We closed with 1045 backers, nearly 100 more backers than our best campaign before this (Bobby Jo 2). 

THANK YOU!

Thank you to those of you who have been tried and true Bad Bug supporters these past few years who showed up again on this campaign. Thank you, as well, to those of you who have backed a Bad Bug book for the first time. 

Important notes:

  • Stretch goals. You guys unlocked so much stuff. 5 cover trading cards (we still need to vote on which cover the 5th card will be), 1 tarot card, 1 sticker, 1 5x7 Naughty Print. Not to mention everyone who backed on Day 1 will get the die-cut sticker (shown at the bottom of the campaign)
  • We are 70% through the book. I'll share some more art soon. We've been conscious of the need to distance this book visually from HyperGeist, so we used another colorist. The great news is we are really pleased with how the book looks; however, any time you work with someone new, there is a workshop period. Making sure we get everything right. Regardless, we should be way ahead of our projected delivery timeline of May.
  • As we've mentioned in updates, our reward descriptions, and the disclaimer in the Important information section at the bottom of the campaign, SHIPPING WILL BE CHARGED DURING THE BACKERKIT SURVEY. We expect the surveys to be sent in the second half of February.
  • Continue contacting [email protected] with any questions, concerns, or issues. 
  • We currently have a week left on Bobby Jo 3, which, if you back both this campaign and that campaign for physical tiers, you will receive a crossover print. Here is the link to the Bobby Jo campaign.  

Here are two campaigns I recently backed because I know the creators and I really think they come up with some really fun ideas. 

CTRL+Z #1-3

Issues #1-3 of an action sci-fi comic for mature fans of The Matrix and Ready Player One!

Tap Or Die #1-2: An NSFW Wrestling Comic

After getting screwed over by the commissioner of his pro wrestling league, Domino will stop at nothing to get his revenge.

950 backers! 13 hours to go!

Last note, my friends. We could hit a new Bad Bug record on this campaign if we have 50 more people jump on and pledge today!

If we get 1,000 backers, we we will throw in another cover trading card!
