Wow! iVerse pledged “$5,000 or more” for the exclusive digital rights!
There were many cool premiums offered (Comic book cameos for pledges! Original art! Cosplay costumes! A superhero extreme makeover! Portfolio reviews!), and many still are available!
For $20, a copy will be donated to a school or library! (Reading With Pictures will even help you find one!) And that donation is tax deductible!

Sweet Kirby Crackle that’s a lot of great stuff! And it’s educational, so your teachers and parents will like it as well! (And folks, once the schools realize what a great educational tool comics are, they’ll order more! They’ll start offering classes! And teaching how to use them at teachers colleges!)
Don’t worry about ordering multiple times… Here’s how to do it!
CAN I PURCHASE MULTIPLE REWARDS?
Yes… but not directly. Kickstarter only allows you to choose a single reward no matter how much you pledge. However, if you wish to purchase multiple rewards you can do the following (and I promise it’s not as complicated as it appears):
- Add up all the costs of all the rewards you’d like to purchase. Then manually enter that pledge amount.
- Select one of the rewards (If one of the rewards you want has a limited quantity available, please choose that one).
- Make your payment.
- Contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org to tell us how much you pledged and what rewards you want and we’ll add your information to our “special” ledger reserved only for the most awesome of backers.
CAN I ADD NEW REWARDS AFTER I MAKE MY PLEDGE?
Absolutely! And it goes down like this:
- You add the cost of the new reward to your existing pledge amount and then update your pledge to reflect the new total.
- You then contact us directly at email@example.com to tell us how you changed your pledge amount and what new pledges you’re looking to purchase and we hook you up straight away to make all your wishes, hopes and/or dreams come true! (Satisfaction not guaranteed.)
So here’s a last chance to get some cool comics at a great price! 144 pages, hardcover, for $25! It’s suitable for children, so you can be the “cool uncle/aunt/authority figure” when you give it as a gift! (Of course, you’ll have to read it first, to make sure it’s “age appropriate”!)
I’ve been writing for The Beat since July of 2010.
I’ve been reading comics since 1974, collecting since 1984, and spreading the graphic novel gospel since 1994.
I’m a bookseller, a librarian, an amateur scholar, a cool uncle, and a comics evangelist.
