Incredible Doom #03 - Finale

The dramatic final part of Incredible Doom #3 is now up. You can read the whole issue here. This is my favorite issue so far, the ending in particular was a ton of fun to plan and draw. I hope you like it. 

I want to thank everyone who's been sharing the series. I don't have an advertising budget. So folks like you sharing it with friends is the only way this series has been finding it's audience. I'm humbled and so appreciative. It means a lot. Thank you.

Announcing FEELIES!

In 1982, game developer Infocom released Deadline, their first of many games that would include what they called "feelies".  

From Abandonware DOS

To make things more spicy, Infocom filled the game boxes with a lot of items and called them "feelies". Some of the feelies were used as a form of copy protection, others were there just to let the player "feel" the game outside the computer.
For example, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy box came with a Don't Panic! button, a Pocket Fluff, an empty plastic bag (the Microscopic Space Fleet), a pair of Peril Sensitive Sunglasses, an order for the destruction of Arthur Dent's house and an order for the destruction of Earth, both on paper.

 

I'm a huge fan of these kinds of things. The Kicksrarter for my book The Chairs' Hiatus I created CD jewel cases, ticket stubs, business cards, even tour shirts for the fictional band in the comic. 

In the first issue of Incredible Doom we included a miniature version of the printer paper Allison holds in the comic.

    People really seemed to love it. Which is why I'm excited to say that were going to start doing this with every issue.

    Every member backing at $4 or above will get an extra physical item from the world of the story every two months along with the print version of the comic. 

    This is so cool. We've been wanting to do this all along, but there are costs and time involved that we didn't know if we could take on. Your generous support and sharing of the project has made it possible. 

    The next feelie will come with issue #2. It's  a recreation of the mysterious note that Richard finds in his locker. You can see a video of it here. It looks so good!

    I'm going to be taking them to the post office later next week, so if there's anyone you know who might want one please let them know to sign up before January 18th. 

    If you'd like you can share a tweet, or boost a Mastodon post that includes a neat video of the new feelie.  

    We couldn't do this without you. The fact that you support this project means the world to me. It makes me so happy to be able to send you cool things like this in return.

    Incredible Doom #03 - Part 1

    Hey everyone! Allison is back! 

    I just posted the first part of issue #3. It features the return of Allison from issue #1, as well as Sam, who you saw briefly at the end of issue #1. This is my favorite issue of the series so far. I shared it with members a couple months ago and I can't wait for you to see it unfold. 

    Thank you for following along!

    I posted the last eight pages of issue #2 page today. I'm pretty excited about it. Richard and Ryans beef comes to a pretty violent end. 

    Don't forget, you can get a beautiful printed copy of issue #2, as well as your name printed in the back of the book by becoming member on Patreon. 

    I'm also posting a new update to issue #3 for my Patreon members. Allison and her father make a return in a big way in that issue. 

    Thank all of you for reading along with issue to. This whole project is a big experiment and I'm so gratified that so many people seem to be enjoying it and sharing it with friends.
