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.

Thought Bubble

Quick update: I’m off to Thought Bubble this weekend to introduce some new people to DRONES! No table, but I’ll be wandering like a maniac. I also just received this amazing pinup in the mail from Silvio DB, with colors by our very own Cabral. Just something to get you in the mood for issue three. E.T. Dollman is hard at work on the lettering, and we should be good for a digital release in the next two weeks. In other news, Bruno just got back after a whirlwind tour of the New York Comic Con and his old San Fran haunts. Whatever geek flu he got at the convention is gone and he’s working on the layouts to issue four as we speak. Can’t wait to see the new tricks he’s learned.

Peace!

News

Quick note about the upcoming schedule. Drones #2 is scheduled for digital release in the next week or so. Cabral is working on the colors for Drones #3 as we speak, and once he’s done I’ll get that up for digital distribution as well. We’re going to go with the same platforms as issue one (iTunes and Graphicly), as well as DriveThru Comics, which I’m really excited about. More to come!!
