UPDATE! The amazing people at Kickstarter have granted the campaign a 7-day extension in light of recent events. With your help, I know this project can get funded! It will now conclude on March 27, 2020.
There are just four days remaining till the Kickstarter to fund Volume 2 of the graphic novel about ME ends… And the countdown has begun! Here’s the deal.
How This Works
The Kickstarter campaign ends this Friday evening. And, if the book hasn’t been fully funded by then… It won’t get printed. That’s because Kickstarter is an all-or-nothing funding platform. If every last cent of the goal hasn’t been reached by the time the clock strikes 5:00 on Friday, March 20, Oneshi Press loses everything.
That means no Tracy Queen, V2: Dangerous Experiments—at all! No discounts on other Oneshi Press comics. Zero art prints. No luscious, 52-page trade paperbacks featuring stunning art from Jayel Draco, Tangmo Cecchini, Shaydens Doodle, Jason Johnson, Dylan Jay Fox, and Sophia Murphy. No stickers or hand-drawn art from Jayel Draco or paper doll of ME! A straight-up tragedy, folks.
Do It on Principle!
As you might be aware, it’s been very difficult for Oneshi Press to spread the word about this campaign, because it talks about s-e-x! If you’d like to know more about how talking about the dreaded “s” word has hurt the campaign, you can read Lynsey G’s article on Women Write About Comics, or the Oneshi Press blog post about #sockspositivity.
It’s been so hard to talk about this campaign online that we’ve even taken to P*r*hub (you know, the world’s biggest adult website?) to spread the word. (Not that I’m complaining. It’s kind of a feather in my cap, TBH.)
Look, if you can share any of the above links on your social media to raise awareness, it’d be great. We need all the help we can get while the countdown continues. Every mention, like, share, comment, and pledge helps spread the word farther!
Do It for the Stuff!
Not everybody’s all about explaining sex-positivity to their loved ones. I get it. (I might judge you a little bit…but I get it.) But that’s not the only reason to support this Kickstarter! There’s also…a boatload of cool stuff!
Every single backer will receive a preorder copy of the graphic novel in print and/or digital format! And most will also get issues 1 and 2 of PACK, a comic about vigilante dogs that takes place in the same world as Tracy Queen! (And stars a masked vigilante who is an absolute snack. Woof!) Backers get oodles of art, sweet stickers, and much more—all for much less than retail value! Pledge now to get all the goodies.
And trust me when I say that there’s more on the way! Things like more hand-drawn art, exclusive stickers, limited-edition prints, and more. It’s all going to be unrolled in the next few days as the Kickstarter countdown continues… The best way to stay tuned is to back the Kickstarter and get all the updates as they’re revelead!
Do It to Fight Boredom During Quarantine!
It’s kind of scary out there right now, folks. This pandemic has got us all hunkered down at home, and we need as much uplifting entertainment as we can get to keep our spirits up. And I’m just gonna go right ahead and say it… This graphic novel is a great way to keep yourself entertained during social distancing! It’s got talking animals (well…okay…one talking animal)! Cyborgs! Crime! Betrayal! Butt kicking! Swordplay! Self-discovery! Erotic exploration! And the baddest-ass heroine you’ve ever seen—me!
Oneshi Press has the entire book ready to go, which means that digital versions of the book will be delivered within a week or two of receiving funding on Kickstarter! That means that you’ll get digital comics delivered to you—without having to go out in public—in just a few weeks time! COVID-19 ain’t got nothing on Tracy Queen!
But, if you want to get comics during quarantine, now’s the time to show your support! A pledge of any amount or a share on your social media means the world to the team. And the countdown is own!
