2 hours left to go in our Fall Books Kickstarter!

Only two more hours for you to pledge to our Fall Books Project and sign up for one of our awesome rewards tiers! 

We have been fully funded for the initial two books for this project, Reich #12 by Elijah Brubaker and Vortex by William Cardini.  Both books are available as rewards, plus awesome extras like original art, prints and Sparkplug t-shirts.
Our stretch goal is $8450 - that's $2000 more than our original goal - which will allow us to print the next book in the Sparkplug Minis Series, Bird Girl and Fox Girl by Yumi Sakugawa.
We would like to thank everyone who has already contributed or shared our project - you have made an amazing contribution to Sparkplug's legacy.  Let's push through these last two hours and see if we can't make that stretch goal!

19 hours left to go!



Our Kickstarter is funded, but there is still time to help us meet our stretch goal!  Our stretch goal will get the third of the Sparkplug Minis Series printed.  The Sparkplug Minis Series is a series of short run (500 copies) mini comics by new and/or under-appreciated artists.  The next artist in our line up for this series is Bird Girl and Fox Girl by Yumi Sakugawa
We are asking for $2000 over our initial funding goal - that's $8450 to publish this book and pay our videographer and t-shirt designer.  Any amount we raise now will go to these things, but it would be AMAZING if we could hit that $8450 goal.  So please share/reblog/tweet and/or consider pledging.  We can't do it without your support.
And please enjoy these preview images from Bird Girl and Fox Girl!
