Last Week

We wrote a sweet, funny graphic novel about letting kids read what they want, but without your help it may never see the light of day.

Here's the deal. We need to raise enough money to pay the artist and print the book. We're doing this by pre-selling books on Kickstarter. Backers of our campaign will only be charged if the total amount is raised, so pledging is risk-free. But the deadline is May 13th, so we need your help now.

Since some have asked, the funding level is so high, in part, because it includes the cost of shipping books to backers. This is especially high for international customers. If we were just making ebooks we'd need less than half as much money, but we're old-fashioned paper book lovers. That said, you can choose to just buy an ebook (just $10!) and we won't judge you.

This is the first non-Unshelved book that Gene and I have written together, and we'd love to do more. Please help support two independent cartoonists by buying a copy of The Best Book today.
