OXYMORON Hardcover Gets a Little Bigger!
200% Funded Pre-Order Campaign Results in Oversized Hardcover
With one week to go in its successful pre-order campaign for OXYMORON Volume 1
, I am thrilled to announced that the book will now be an oversized hardcover
. The increase from standard hardcover graphic novel size (6.625 x 10.25) to oversized dimensions (7.5 X 11) made popular by hardcover collections like THE WALKING DEAD, was made possible by surpassing $15,000 in pre-order funding through Kickstarter…and with six days to go, the campaign shows no signs of slowing down.
Pushing the Oxymoron campaign over the top was a mix of drawing new backers, and incentivizing existing backers to increase their pledges. Some of the campaigns more unique offerings include a complete set of the ten hardcover variants
(of which 5 have currently been revealed), a Writer’s Dream Package
where ComixTribe works closely with one writer to bring his script to life by providing complete editorial, art, pre-press, and publishing support, and a ComixTribe4Life Package
where the backer will receive every book published by ComixTribe for the rest of his or her life!On behalf of the entire Oxymoron team, we’re thilled with how well received this campaign has been. From the very beginning, we set out to make the absolute best graphic novel possible, and in this case bigger definitely is better!
OXYMORON VOLUME 2?
There are still three stretch goals left to achieve in the remaining 6 days of the campaign, the biggest one being the immediate greenlighting of Oxymoron Volume 2 Anthology at $20K
.All backers of the Oxymoron Volume 1 campaign will get an invitation to pitch (writers) or submit portfolios (artists) to be a part of Volume 2, should it be greenlit.
Thanks again for all of your support! And definitely check out the updated gallery of variants below!
