The last month has been a bit of a whirlwind, but I’m finally catching my breath — which means it’s time to catch all of you up on what’s going on with The Crimebusters! I do still plan on doing a full post-mortem about my Kickstarter campaign — how it went, what went well, what didn’t quite work, what I am going to do differently next time — but for now, here are some quick highlights.
First mystery solved!
I’m happy to say that I have received all the copies of The Crimebusters #1 from the printers and have sent out rewards to almost everyone who backed The Crimebusters Kickstarter. The only thing left is to make a few hand-crafted items such as custom Funko Pops and sketch covers. But most backers have already received their copies of the book, and I’m really excited every time someone sends me a photo or other feedback about the book, like Cameron and Damon here! Thanks everyone, I really appreciate all the support and I hope you are enjoying the comic as much as I enjoyed making it!
Follow the clues…
I’m also really excited to enter the next phase for The Crimebusters #1, as the book has been picked up by its first two comic book shops, That’s Entertainment in Worcester, Massachusetts, and Bedrock Comics in Framingham, Massachusetts!! I am in talks with several other stores, so I hope that The Crimebusters will soon be available at comic book shops across Massachusetts and southern New England. I’ll be announcing new venues as they open up!
The Secret of the Green Mountain Monster
I’m super excited to also announce my first two comic book shows!
First up, I will be helping staff the Boston Comics Roundtable booth in artist’s alley at Boston Fan Expo on Saturday, August 17, from 2-7 pm. If you’re attending Fan Expo, stop by and say hi!
I will also be attending the Catamount Comics Expo in Burlington, Vermont, on Saturday, September 14. So if you’re in the area and want to talk about comic books, come on down! I am hoping to have some cool prints and stuff in addition to The Crimebusters #1, but we’ll see.
The mystery of the online shop
Finally, the mystery of the online shop has been solved. And by that I mean setting up an online shop was a total mystery to me. But after a lot of effort and confusion, I have managed to set up a store online where you can buy copies of The Crimebusters #1 — both digital and physical editions — as well as the Fan Club Membership Kit and other cool stuff. I’m hoping to add more stuff as time goes by, so if there’s something you’d like to see, let me know and I’ll do what I can to make it happen!
