Final push for the ABC DISGUSTING Kickstarter! And THANK YOU SO MUCH!

Hello, marvelous ABC Disgusting backers!

So we've entered the last three hours of the Kickstarter campaign! First, THANK YOU SO MUCH for backing the project! You pushed us past multiple stretch goals, so now everyone who ordered a physical book also gets super-sized stickers, and every backer gets an mp3 of the theme song Jane Lui's writing!

If we hit $40,000 by 11:59 am Eastern Time, Tak and I will make a whole 'nother digital book for you called KAIJU CLUBHOUSE about the ABC DISGUSTING kids hunting monsters! So if you have an inclination to bump up your pledge and pick a bigger reward in these last few hours, please feel free!

I also wanted to let you know we've added a new reward -- for $175, you can have breakfast with me during the New York Comicon! This pledge level also includes the $100 limited edition variant cover reward. Check it out -- just four left!

And here's a last minute plug for the absolutely awesome and adorable limited edition crochet dolls that The Artisan's Nook is producing for the $200 and $750 pledge levels. You can get a good look at them here in this Instagram video: https://instagram.com/p/5cfafJuQm3/?taken-by=gregpakpix At that highest level, you'll actually get a custom doll in YOUR CHILD'S LIKENESS in addition to having your child's likeness drawn into the book! Juuuust in case you happen to have $750 burning a hole in your pocket. ;-)

Finally, please do feel free to share the Kickstarter link to anyone you think might like to back our gross little book at the last minute. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/gregpak/abc-disgusting/ 

I'll be in touch again soon after the campaign ends with info about the BackerKit service we'll be using to collect shipping info and allow you to order additional add-ons. 

Again, thank you so much and talk soon!

Dear amazing ABC DISGUSTING backers!

You are the very best! Last night, just before midnight Eastern Time, you put us over our $24,000 Kickstarter goal! We are definitely making this repulsive book, thanks to your support! And now we're thrilled to share an eight page preview and announce our crazy stretch goals!

$26,000 - SUPER-STICKERS! If the funding hits this level, we'll supersize the stickers that come with all physical rewards, creating 6"x9" sticker sheets that feature multiple peel-off stickers of disgusting things drawn by Takeshi Miyazawa.

Preliminary pencils by Tak Miyazawa for a super-sized peel-off sticker sheet!

$30,000- THEME SONG! At this funding level, every backer will get an mp3 of an original "ABC Disgusting" theme song written and performed by the great singer-songwriter Jane Lui, whose incredible work can be viewed here: http://janelui.com and here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LnqRAvOaRyI

 $40,000 - ANOTHER BOOK! At this level, every backer will get a digital copy of a WHOLE 'NOTHER CHILDREN'S BOOK written by Greg and illustrated by Tak with glorious black-and-white art! Title and story to be revealed if and when we hit the $30,000 stretch goal.

$50,000 - GROSS! At this level, Greg will eat ketchup on cantaloupe -- and post a video to prove it.

$100,000 - SUPER-GROSS! At this level, Greg will make and drink (part of) a mayonnaise milkshake -- and post a video to prove it.

And now... the eight page preview! Artist Takeshi Miyazawa, colorist Jessica Kholinne, and letterer Simon Bowland have been hard at work at this for some time now -- hope you enjoy and please do feel free to share with your friends and family and send 'em to https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/gregpak/abc-disgusting/ to back the project!

Thanks so much for everything -- you're making our gross dreams come true and we appreciate it so much!
