    Ok I must admit I didn’t see that coming at all. Touche indeed.

      Originally I was just going to end on the horse joke, but the more ludicrous his kidnapping failures became, the more I started to root for him to come out on top.

  2. Ed8 says:

    But why wouldn’t kidnapping be one of his duties? – He seems particularly skilled at it, and certainly does not lack practice. Now that we’ve established that his poor target selection was intentional, the fact that he managed to kidnap half the town one at a time and yet remain uncaptured himself seems particularly impressive.

    • mvandinter says:

      Your reasoning is solid, and I’m sure Her Highness will reconsider if I decide to add more kidnapping episodes to the storyline.

    “The number of copies has a big impact on printing costs, so Iā€™m hoping to get some idea of the interest level”
    Ironically, my interest level (or rather ability to pay) is greatly impacted by the cost, so I suppose that’s a completely unhelpful circular response on my part. šŸ™
    If it’s at the same price as the Kickstarter, then I’m in.

    • mvandinter says:

      I’m in the same circular conundrum when it comes to estimating the print cost. Unlike the Kickstarter, though, this is not a fundraiser. I’ll probably end up selling the books with zero profit margin.

      • NoneCallMeTim says:

        What about some kind of print on demand service? That way you don’t have to worry about up front costs, but people can still buy copies of the books?

  4. Ruth says:

    Have to say–if you do a kickstarter–can you please do it so the money comes out at the first of the month? I know I can’t be the only one on a limited budget and awkward payday!!

    • mvandinter says:

      Hi Ruth, always happy to have a new commenter! After the previous unsuccessful Kickstarter, I can’t imagine doing another. Right now I’m hoping to do a print run and take orders for individual books.

  5. Crabe says:

    Maybe selling pdf would be another solution? (say the man with a small pay and not enough room on his bookshelves).

  6. Kzwix says:

    I, for one, would like to hasard a guess as to why your Kickstarter was unsuccessful.

    I think there might be two main reasons:
    1) There aren’t that many updates
    2) There might not be that many fans yet

    I’m very confident about this story, the drawing is good, and the plot seems even better, so I think there is a lot of potential here. But maybe Kickstarter isn’t the best medium yet.

    Have you heard of Patreon ? This lets people pledge a flat per-update sum, along with a monthly cap. Then you get paid by these donators for each update of the site, up to what they were ready to give each month.

    I think this might help you financially, while providing the incentive for more comics, AND being less “painful” for people who might not be able to afford the kickstarter (or don’t want a book, but still would like to support you).

    You should have a look at it.

    This seems like a great comic so far, and I would be interested in a pdf version, except I am in college at the moment, and food is more important than fun and exciting books at the moment.
