Created by Steve Conley

A campaign to bring the classic sci-fi webcomics to print for the very first time!

Latest Updates from Our Project:

Locking addresses, unboxing t-shirts, and sharing art!

Hi! I hope you're doing great ! You may have seen an e-mail from Backerkit earlier today asking you to confirm your address. If you haven't moved in the last eight weeks, you're probably fine, but it couldn't hurt to confirm your address - especially if you're an international backer. 

I received the t-shirts today and they look great! Here's a video with proof... 

Production update

We're just waiting on the last few items...

  • I'm awaiting the big order of books - I received a rushed partial order and I'll be sending those out to the "just the book" tier
  • I'm expecting the Brothers Hildebrandt art prints to arrive on Wednesday
  •  The pins are currently delayed in transit. They've been sitting in Shanghai for a week. I'm expecting to wake up one day this week to find them on my doorstep. I'll keep you posted. This is a redone batch of pins as the first ones were made incorrectly. I demand perfection for my supporters! :D

And now, art...

And because I don't like to post without sharing art, here are a few of commissions I'm working on for Patreon supporters...

A drawing of "Something" the Half-Elf from The Middle Age
Sir Quimp from The Middle Age (you can see I'm still adding the chain mail texture to his arm and collar)
A drawing of Dynamo from the classic THUNDER Agents comic book. An oldie but a goody.

Thank you so much for your amazing support! I can't wait for you to get your books!

And keep an eye out for an e-mail via Kickstarter shortly with instructions for downloading additional digital rewards!

I hope you and yours are safe and well!

Book proofs arrived, t-shirt progress and patches!
about 1 month ago – Tue, Aug 24, 2021 at 08:31:12 PM

I received the proofs of the books and they look alllllmooosst perfect. 

I've asked the printer to send along another round with a few tweaks. I should get the new proof next week.

The printing quality, color, and finish are everything I could have hoped for! <3 

The patches are in and they look great! The photos don't do them justice. The threads really shine!

If you're a supporter of my Patreon at any level, one of these patches will be added to your package. 

The t-shirt production is going well with me badgering the poor sales rep to make sure everything is just right. (I want to make sure the logo sits on the chest and not the midriff or belly). This is a heroic logo and should go where all hero logos go! :) 

I'm expecting the pins to arrive next week. I'll share photos when they come in!

Thank you again for your amazing support!

PDFs links going out shortly!

Hi! Your downloadable book link is on the way!

Look for a message shortly from Kickstarter's system with insructions for downloading your digital/PDF copy of Astounding Space Thrills: Undersea Menace from the Year 3200! I'm so excited for you to get your book!

More Kickstarter news...

The production of the physical loot is going great and I'm expecting the hardcover proofs of the books any day now.

Here's a look at the (likely) final cover for the printed book. If something looks amiss in the proof, things might get tweaked. 

 I'll be sharing sneak peaks of the books and the other items (patches, pins, t-shirts, etc.)  as they come in!

HUGE thanks to everyone who recently signed up to support me on Patreon! Thanks to you, I've begun work on a Compendium of The Middle Age (working title). It's a handbook, sort of a "who's who," if you will, of the major characters in The Middle Age

If you want to become a Patreon supporter and see the compendium as it comes together, ask pertinent questions, and correct my typos, click here:

Keep an eye out for those download links and coupon codes shortly!

Thanks again! You're the best!

Backerkit surveys locking soon! Please respond if you haven't yet! :D

Big thanks to everyone who has responded to the Backerkit surveys. If you haven't yet - and especially if you've ordered a t-shirt - please check your inbox and respond as soon as you can.  

And here's the link for Patreon if you'd like to sign up and get that Argosy Smith Embroided Patch added to your physical rewards.

Someone asked: If you're getting digital-only rewards like PDFs, you can still get the patch, but will just have to pay a little bit extra for shipping.

Look for the digital goodies in the next week or so! :)

Thank you again!
