How do I say twenty years worth of thank yous?
When we decided to launch a Kickstarter that would collect 20 years of PvP into hardcover books, I was terrified. PvP is a legacy comic strip. It exists in an odd space with rules that don’t really apply to other webcomics. It has a passionate dedicated group of readers, but it’s reach I feared, was limited. 9 volumes of comics is a big ask. A $75k goal is a big ask. I was worried that PvP didn’t have the juice to pull it off.
Needless to say, I was blown away at the outpouring of excitement and support for this kickstarter. The comments, emails, and social media messages bowled me over. I never had any idea how important this comic strip still was to people. And I’m so humbled and proud that we get to collect 20 years of it into some gorgeous books for you. I’m eager to get these printed. Eager to see what the next 20 years bring.
We still have one day left on this thing and I want to bring it home big. So let me update you on what stretch goals you’ve already reached and what’s next for our final hours. We've already added a signed lithograph, a slip case for the 20th Anniversary Retrospective book, and PvP Playing Cards (something I've always wanted to make), but we're still working on one last reward. A Limited Edition Cloisonné 10 Pin Set coming in at nearly 7 inches wide and featuring the main cast of PvP!
Thanks to all the Backers who've already joined us, to those will join us in the final hours, and to anyone spreading the word about the Kickstarter. And thank you readers and fans for the last 20 years. You've helped to make this possible in more ways than you could ever know. Here's to 20 more!
