Funded in just over an hour! And the show has just begun! 🤩
We’re so excited to have you all here this week! San Diego Comic-Con is a big industry deal and while we will be attending that show, the prospect of running a physical booth is just EXHAUSTING (and EXPENSIVE), so we’re thrilled to host an even BIGGER booth on Backerkit as the Official Second-Annual Magnetic-Con. We want to make the experience as complete and fun as possible (hence the cool swag, badges, tees, book, etc), and of course want to offer some AMAZING deals in our catalogue as Add-ons in the pledge manager. All of this is to meant welcome both newcomers and prior fans of Magnetic to a celebration of our fantastic authors and creators!
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask us anything. While we are on the road (at SDCC), we’ll try to reply as promptly as possible (as long as our mobile batteries can carry us). We’ll also post some show stuff on our IG page (@magneticpress) throughout — watch for #magnetic-con23! (And feel free to post your favorite magnetic thoughts to that hashtag as well!)
Thanks for a great launch, everyone! This should be a fun week! 😎
Quick question - do we know what the t shirt sizes will go up to? Often campaigns forget that we are not all super slim or that there are people that actually prefer baggy t-shirts rather than skin tight! If we pick the tee add-on and there isn't an appropriate size available I am assuming we can use the credit towards other add-ons? (I have my eye on some other books!)
I want to support smaller publishers that make a point of hiring people who don't always get their voice heard at other publishers. But I hate how this crowd funding has been handled. We have been left in the dark on everything and ignored. I don't want to make a public stink on their twitter, where they actually respond to people, because I don't want to damage a brand that seems to want to do good. But I can safely say that I don't think I will crowd funding another of their books. There is no excuse. Even if they decided to finally show up and explain, it would be the same tired excuses about being a small company and busy. But this is a $200,000 project that has just been left to stew. It would have taken so little to give updates beyond "Production continues" To be clear, I don't care about the length of time. Shit happens. I care that you took our money and just decided we were not worth communicating with anymore. Crowdfunding is built on trust and community. I am glad you have had so much success with your other projects that you felt this one didn't need your attention. I am sure it won't actually impact your company, I am small potatoes and I probably one of the few that were annoyed enough to take note. But I am sad that my enthusiasm for this product and this company was so quickly sapped by the poor handling of this.
I saw smut peddler is being released in store. Can we get an update on anything going on? I still haven't received my physical copy and was charged, in full, like everyone else, for the pledge. Please update, this was such a great project with so many fantastic artist
Project Update: It's time to fill out your surveys!
If you want to add a blacklight poster, embroidered patch, or any other goodie to your order, or simply complete the original pledge as you first punched it in, now's the time and here's the place!
Tanks for your support for this strange little comics, everybody! Your'e the reason we get to do all this, and we're grateful.
