Final days of the Legendary Showdown Kickstarter

Well as of writing we’ve raised $69,000 to create the Legendary Showdown card game, 6 days away from the end of the funding period. The success blows me away. I’m so happy so many people are excited for this game.

For our final push, we’ve got some new stretch goals AND a new reward tier I’d like to draw your attention to.

If you pledge $115 you get all the goodies of lower tiers plus a 3rd unique challenge coin, and a hand drawn playing card by me, of a character that is not in the normal game. As of this writing, there are only 28 of these left, though if it really blows out, we might offer a few more.

New stretch goals! We’ve blown through several stretch goals at this point, gaining a gameplay video tutorial, upgraded quality printing, a second challenge coin, new game characters, new artwork from me for five cards, and quick guide cards.

But there’s been an incredible demand on this game, and I’m really excited to see if we can make some even cooler stuff to go with it.

$75,000: We unlock a new challenge coin (probably of Gordito and Yoshi) and an oversized collector card included with the game

$100,000: Two more Kickstarter backer exclusive oversized collector cards included with every game.

$125,000: Here is where things get nutty. We’re shooting for the moon, but we want to give you cool stuff for it. We will produce Dr. McNinja figurines and include them with every pledge $50 or higher.

$150,000: And this is the big one. On top of the regular webcomic, I’ll make a Kickstarter backer exclusive stand alone 22 page Dr. McNinja e-book comic that will go out free to every single backer, AND we’ll give those figurines away with every copy of the game, no matter the pledge level. This stretch goal is an insane number, but it could happen!

Thanks again for all the tremendous support so far! I love this game, and I hope you will too.

A Bounty of Dr. McNinja News

I am a guest on Comic Book Club tonight! If you live in the NYC area and would like to spend your Tuesday evening watching me and a few comedians talk comic books, well then this is a fine way to achieve that goal. The show is free, and you must be 21 to enter (because it is a bar). If you miss the show, you can catch the podcast! But coming live might get you PRIIIIIZEEES. (some donated by Midtown Comics, some by me. Also my prizes are totally sweet)

Longshot Saves the Marvel Universe #1 comes out TOMORROW, Wednesday November 6th! Jacopo and I worked really hard on this book, and we’re both quite proud of it, so I hope you check it out. Also Issues 3-4 will be coming out EVERY OTHER WEEK. PRETTY LUCKY. Available at your local comic shop, and probably digitally through Comixology or the Marvel Comics App.

Hey that Kickstarter we’re doing for Legendary Showdown is going uh… PRETTY GREAT. As of this writing, we’ve blown past the goal of $15,000, ensuring the game will be funded and produced. As of this writing, the Kickstarter has raised $54,000, meaning we’ve already blasted through some stretch goal rewards that I am currently working on, like redrawn cards, new characters and action cards, and a new challenge coin. You can take a look at the updates on the Kickstarter page for more info.

I have to say that Blake at Killer Robot Games and I are both pretty blown away by the INCREDIBLE support that kind folks like you have put in. It’s a really great game, and I’m so happy so many of you are into it! With support like this, we’ve got some sweet stretch goal prizes we’ll be unveiling soon, stuff I wouldn’t have thought possible at the start of this campaign. Keep an eye out over the next couple days! We’re making cool things!

I should also mention I’m doing art for ANOTHER card game, Alteil Horizons. It looks pretty incredible! Take a look.

One final thing: I’m still doing personalized book orders through TopatoCo! We’ll be leaving the sale open until sometime in early-mid December aka: Christmas order cutoff.

Dr. McNinja’s Legendary Showdown

Oh my goodness, I am happy to finally announce the Kickstarter for a project I have been working on for QUITE some time now with Killer Robot Games: Legendary Showdown. It’s a card game where you take characters, weapons, scenarios and actions from The Adventures of Dr. McNinja, and strategically deploy them in a game of one-ups-manship (is that how you spell that? WHO KNOWS)

The game is COMPLETELY FINISHED. All we have to do is print it. But printing a card game is EXPENSIVE. And so, Kickstarter. Besides giving you the opportunity to pre-order the game, there are some fun other rewards we’ve got lined up, like a Dr. McNinja challenge coin, and health center informational pamphlets on zombies and Paul Bunyan’s Disease.

If you’re interested in finding out more about the game (like how to play it) please check out the presentation Killer Robot and I have put together on the Kickstarter! I will personally state that I enjoy my prototype version of the game VERY much and make friends play it anytime they come over. I hope you’ll support the project and enjoy your copy as well!

New York Comic Con

I’m going to be making a couple appearances at New York Comic Con this weekend!

SATURDAY

12:30pm-1:30pm: Room 1A08: Beyond the Webcomic Panel with Kate Beaton, Ryan North and Seth Fishman.

5pm – 5:40pm: Marvel Comics Booth #1354 : Signing! I will sign whatever physical object you bring for me to sign. Doesn’t have to just be Marvel stuff.

SUNDAY

3pm – 3:30pm: ShiftyLook Booth #1620: Ryan North and I will talk about Galaga, and if you want us to sign stuff after, come up and say hi! Ryan is a very tall man, and I am a bearded fellow who will probably be wearing a blazer. Look for that combo.

I hope to see you there!

-Christopher

PS: The uh… the stuff we’ll be talking about in that panel is exactly why there was no page on Monday. Sorry. Deadlines for EVERYTHING are INTENSE right now, partially due to NYCC itself.

PPS: Don’t forget you can get a personalized book this week! :D

PPPS: I’ve got something NEW and VERY COOL and DR. MCNINJA-Y coming soon that I’ve been working on for like… a year or two now.
