Smithson Thus Far... ·


Shaenon: All right! We're getting ready to publish Skin Horse Volume 2! This volume will cover the entire Alaska arc, plus a 14-page bonus story about Sandwich Day.

We'll be funding the project through Kickstarter, which allows individuals to help fund creative projects. We have a whole bunch of different rewards and goodies lines up for people who pledge, including signed books, original artwork, a production diary and sketchbook, and an exclusive prose story written by Jeffrey.

Interested? Check out our Kickstarter page. The book will only be funded if we reach our pledge goal by July 31.

Oh, and Volume 1 is available now through the Couscous store.

Channing: Do you like sketches, autographed books and original strip art? Do you totally want to hear embarrassing stories of how many times I tried and failed to write the Volume 2 bonus story? Do you want to see humiliating and possibly incriminating vignettes and/or e-mail excerpts from our attempts to whack the damn Alaska arc into shape? Do you, in fact, want to TOTALLY LORD IT OVER YOUR NEIGHBOR with regard to how much insider information and exclusive swag you've got on the topic of "Dead Dogs / Big Bad Wolves", the storyline which I was convinced would take only a few months to tell but which now comprises the bulk of an entire Skin Horse collection?

You should already know the answer, but on the off chance you don't, here is a hint: it's "Yes, Shaenon and Jeffrey. Yes I do."

Well... as it it happens, you're in luck.

'Keiya' (keiya) says: I'm out of luck. I'm broke ;_; But at least I can keep reading Skin Horse online with something new *every single day*! So I can't really complain now can I? ^_^
So It Begins (soitbegins) says: Woo!
Hilary Bruce (cameoflage) says: Unity in a polo shirt does not compute. Perhaps my unreasoning hatred of polo shirts is blinding me to the truth, but she just really doesn't seem like someone who would wear one.
Jack Elliott (jacktus) says:

I am now a backer!

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

(TUNE: "Love Me Do", The Beatles)

Hey, look what's new!
Skin Horse, Volume Two,
Now makes its debut!
Hey, yo-o-o-ou!
It's brand new!

Here's what you'll do;
You'll buy Volume Two!
You know that it's true!
This boo-o-o-ook ...
You'll pursue!

Gar-ri-ty's art ...
Story by Wells ...
It sure looks smart ...
Let's hope it sells!

We think that you
Should buy Volume Two!
(The first one was blue!)
Please bu-u-u-uy ...
Skin Horse Two!

Rob (rrreed) says: The bad news: there are only 68 more days to go to meet the pledge goal.

The good news: after less than twenty-four hours, Volume 2 is already almost two-thirds of the way to the pledge goal. Woot!
Daniel Baye (pooga) says:

Make that over two-thirds of the way to the pledge goal. :)

Shaenon Garrity (shaenongarrity) says:

It'd be pretty boss if we could reach the pledge goal in 24 hours. I would put out *such* a press release.
Justin Kane (avatarjk137) says:

You're just north of three quarters now, and I believe it's been less than 18 hours.  That's so awesome.

Tom Powell (top1950) says:

Oh My Gosh, the cover alone is worth my $20 pledge!  And it sounds like I'll get a copy of the book, too!  Yay, Skinhorse!

PS:  By the way, I love the video on the Kickstart page, Shaenon & Jeffrey!  (..I assume you already know I like the Vol. 2 cover..!!)

Shaenon Garrity (shaenongarrity) says:

Thanks, Tom! It was surprisingly easy to make on iMovie.
Shaenon Garrity (shaenongarrity) says:

And we've reached our funding goal! In less than 24 hours! I am seriously gobsmacked, people. I have no words.
Robert Stacy (robovox) says:'re co-writer an' stuff. You got to have words!

We're all pleased as punch to help make it happen, Shaenon.

Jeffrey Channing Wells (channing) says: Wow. Just... wow.
Daniel Baye (pooga) says:

I wouldn't be surprised if there's another boost Monday. If it weren't for the facebook message, I wouldn't have seen it until then, since I'm normally a M-F reader.
