I announced the upcoming Kickstarter a little while ago, and now it’s time to talk about the entry level digital rewards. These are the levels that are going to scratch that comic itch. They are also the backbone of the entire campaign, and we couldn’t be more excited to share them with you.

$2 – MAIN TRACK

24 pages of Mixmancer madness in a DRM-free PDF.

This is the entry-level, DRM-free PDF for those who are just interested in the killer cover and 24 pages of madcap action. For just $2, you’ll get the book and access to exclusive backer updates.

$5 – EXTENDED MIX

Keep the party going after the 24 pages are over. This PDF includes the story, script, back matter, sketches, pinups, and playlist.

If you want to find out just what went into the making of this Frankenstein monster of a book, this is the reward level for you! I’ll be including the original character designs by Carlos, all the juicy pinups, as well as a playlist that highlights all the pop-culture snippets I cribbed.

$8 – SCRIPT SELECTOR

Why settle for one file when you can get two? This includes the EXTENDED MIX as well as a PDF featuring scripts from my other projects.

In one of the more blatant samples (ie. rip-offs, of which there are many) of Ryan K Lindsay’s brilliant Kickstarter campaign for Deer Editor, this reward level includes a PDF full of scripts from my other projects, including RETURN TO MAKER (my short story in the Imaginary Drugs anthology by IDW), the upcoming construction worker vs. mutant caterpillar miniseries MITCH HAMMER, another new project called KARMA POLICE, DRONES, my Zuda story LITTLE EARTH PEOPLE, awesome fan fic, my first script from the Intro to Writing course at Comics Experience, and more! The older scripts might be a bit rough around the edges, but I’m still proud of ‘em and hope you’ll enjoy seeing my progression over the years.

$10 – MICROPHONE CHECK

I’ll drop some wisdom in the form of a word balloon or caption on the pinup of your choice, and send you the digital file. Includes the EXTENDED MIX and SCRIPT SELECTOR PDFs.

Some amazing artists have stepped up to make the Mixmancer block party even louder. At this reward level, I’ll do a little emceeing over their beats. The result? A personalized, digital pinup with somebody’s words in one of Nic Shaw’s balloons – all for you.

This last one might get a bit sassy!

Tomorrow I’m going to reveal the remix levels, pinup artists, and the chance to create a whole new Mixmancer comic. This, my friends, is where it’s at.

“There are people. There are stories. The people think they shape the stories, but the reverse is often closer to the truth.” – The Original Writer

January 19th. The Mix is on.

MIXMANCER KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN

Hip-Hop meets Sci-Fi in the greatest mashup since The Grey Album! Written by Chris Lewis. Art by Carlos Trigo. Colors by Andrew Crossley. Letters by Nic Shaw. Edits by Yannick Morin.

MM Logo

MIXMANCER is a 24-page one-shot about a superhero DJ who hunts down a memoir-gone-wrong to a local bookstore. There, he must remix pop-culture in order to fight an extra-dimensional thought-virus, spiky pink tentacles, and self-help fundamentalists!

We are bringing MIXMANCER to Kickstarter because, frankly, there is no better way to distribute a book that has been described (by no one) as a Swamp Thing / Kurt Vonnegut lovechild. For only $2 you can witness the birth of a new pop-culture avatar, humanity’s last hope in its battle against cultural stagnation and the same old story you’ve heard a million times before.

The campaign will launch on January 19th, so please help spread the word. The more backers we have at the beginning, the higher our visibility will be on Kickstarter. This will obviously increase the chances that other readers will make their way to the Mixmancer mashup.

As we approach the launch date, I’ll be posting more information about the various reward levels here and at mixmancer.tumblr.com, as well as sneak peeks of the artwork. Speaking of, here’s a look at Tony Gregori and Jasen Smith’s lovely MIXMANCER pinup.

MIXMANCER to DJ at ECCC!

Well, hopefully. We will be sending the files off to the printer in a day or so, which should give us enough time to have the book shipped by the show.

Dig it.

And now…Thought Bubble

Hi all,

It’s been a wild few months. The Drones Kickstarter was successful and we’re now in the fulfillment phase. The amazing Carlos Trigo and I are almost finished with a 24-page one shot entitled Mixmancer. I’m also developing four other projects with artists whose work I’ve drooled over in many public places.

I’m also overjoyed to be heading to the wonderful Thought Bubble next week! I visited this show last year and was blown away by the atmosphere and dedicated fans. This year I’m exhibiting, and it will be the first time that the Drones tpb will be available to the public. If you’re going to attend, come by New Dock Hall, table #46, and say hello. I’ll also have some beautiful A3 prints, and there might even be some freebies for the first people to swing by.

See you there!Chris

Kickstart my Kickstarter

This is it! After two years of hard work, we are finally done with DRONES! The next step is to print the tpb, or, trade paperback for you non-geeks out there. But in order to do this we are asking for your help! Our goal is to raise $3000 to cover the printing and shipping costs, and we are offering plenty of snazzy rewards in return for your support. So head on over to Kickstarter, watch the video, look at the pretty pictures, check out the reward levels, and please help us out however you can. Remember, even if you’d rather not spend your hard earned monies on the book, every little share, like, and tweet will help us out. Thank you!cover-sm-tpb
