– Hi everyone. I made a comic about why I really hope you’ll support the Modest Medusa Season 4 Kickstarter. In addition to producing a new book, I’m hoping this Kickstarter will allow me to get back to producing more work more regularly, meeting new readers and growing my audience. Please consider helping if you can! Here’s the link.
I really like these comics, it’s a shame I hardly can support myself and worked I could help you out Jake, you do a great job. I am sure that someone with a heart (not to mention, money) will certainly consider boosting your business. (And so we can keep getting this awesome comics.)
Thanks. I appreciate that.
God I wish I wasn’t broke, otherwise I would buy your stuff. Chainsaw unicorn scarf: what you never knew you needed.
I know right now I’m all “BUY MY STUFF” but please never feel bad that you cant afford to support an artist you like.
The pricing for International customers feels wrong, Jake. S4+shipping for $22 is already a whole lot (did the printing prices jump for you?), but adding $25 on top to include a copy of S3? How could that be?
I really wish you all the best, but a total of $47 ($38 when on sale) is enough to receive all 7 hardcover books of Harry potter in Russia (plus $9 for mail delivery of 5 kg).
Do you think it could be optimized somehow?
Unfortunately international shipping has gotten outrageous lately (and printing costs have gone up as well).This was the best price I could offer. Which seems like way too much to me too. Thats one of the reasons I decided to offer a digital package this time.
The pricing of the add-on books got a little weird though. The $9 extra shipping fee is just nuts, and I hate that its that much. The Library pledge is a little better, so I assumed most people would go for that. But it makes sense that some of you might want just two books. shipping two books together isn’t much more expensive than one though (or isn’t as expensive as shipping two separately), so I may offer a “Choose two books” pledge option that allows for a little more affordable shipping than pledging for one book and adding on a second.
Anyway, I’m unhappy about shipping too. It suck.
Well, you might want to count the amount of international customers. If there are more than 200, it might be reasonable to outsource the printing and shipping to some company outside U.S., i.e. in Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, or even Brazil. I’ll point few of them here, they will probably contact you soon.
Thanks. Please do. I was looking for a company to handle fulfillment in Europe, but both of the places I talked to wanted a larger volume then I could provide.
OOh perhaps something in Canada too? Not sure it would help…but on your side you get the best part of the exchange….;)
Yeah. Shipping to Canada is ridiculous too. That may be easier to arrange, although I don’t think it will happen this time. But its clear to me now that it needs to happen in the future.
Since when does Kickstarter not support Paypal anymore? Shame but I can’t add my few coins 🙁
It doesn’t? That sucks. But thanks anyway!
It never has? Else I’d have joined earlier kickstarters.
i’ll see where my funds are but…the exchange rate totally sucks right now…and yer Prez is making things worse….sorry dude
I am very sorry for Trump.
Its not yer fault, its him…yer not the problem…:) Oh I am really enjoying MM its a joy in my life to read with my regular comics…so many many thanks to you.
I’m in as usual.
Thanks for all you do, Jake
Thank you, Simon!
The heck? Jake? You’re not supposed to be in this comic for another few-dozen scenes! Get back to your cage!
Seriously, though, I wish you the best of luck! I know that if I had money (typical excuse…), I’d be grabbin’ me a set o’ these lovelies!
Thanks. I appreciate that. I know a lot of you are broke right now, and I sympathize.
