We were just warming up to mention Shaenon K. Garrity and Jeffrey Wells’ new Kickstarter campaign for their webcomic SKIN HORSE….but it already achieved its goals in a mere 12 hours! But more money means more premiums, so consider pledging on.
Shaenon K. Garrity and Jeffrey C. Wells are pleased to announce the impending publication of the third collected edition of their critically acclaimed webcomic, Skin Horse. To raise the $4,000 necessary to publish this collection, an announcement was placed on Kickstarter.com at midnight on April 1. The project met its funding goal less than 12 hours later.
Additional funding is still being sought, and donors will receive exclusive premiums ranging from formal acknowledgment in the printed edition of the book to original Skin Horse artwork, a slipcover designed by printmaker Liz Conley and the opportunity to be drawn into an upcoming strip. Garrity and Wells plan to add additional incentives over the next two months.
“We knew our readers wouldn’t let us down,” says Garrity, “but this response is astounding. We’re just happy to be able to keep publishing.”
This is Garrity’s third successful Kickstarter drive. She previously used Kickstarter to fund Skin Horse Volume 2 in 2010 and Narbonic: The Perfect Collection in 2011.
