Off*Beat keychain eeee!

 

Thank you for a successful Kickstarter! The Off*Beat Vols 1-2 reprints are at the printer and the first digital rewards will be going out to backers tonight. You guys humble us with your support and hard-earned dollars.

Good news: TCAF is this weekend, and our publisher’s table for Chromatic Press will have the entire editorial team and a mountain of Off*Beat and Tokyo Demons swag – as well as our first announcement of the other creators we’ll be featuring in the launch of Sparkler Monthly! Expect some familiar names, heh heh.

Bad news: The advance copies of the Off*Beat Vol 1-2 paperbacks won’t be arriving in time for TCAF. 🙁

Related good news: Because the books are coming a few weeks later than planned, we can open our Kickstarter pre-orders to the general public for a VERY limited time, ending May 19th. This is for all of you who missed the Kickstarter, can’t buy things through Kickstarter, or just changed all of your life plans now that you’ve seen our keychain mock-up above. We can’t offer all the Kickstarter tiers or free shipping, but the big pre-orders and bonuses are still below, so get ’em while you can. Note: Digital rewards (like the ebooks and desktop background) will be delivered right away, and the books/physical products will ship out in a few weeks, ahead of the official street date. These limited-time pre-orders will be processed through the Tokyo Demons Store:

$12 package: ebooks of Vols 1-2 (.epub, .mobi, and .pdf) + exclusive desktop wallpaper by Jen Lee Quick

$35 package: Everything above + paperbacks of Vols 1-2 + 5 Off*Beat buttons + 2 Off*Beat bookmarks

$50 package: Everything above + handmade tassels for the bookmarks + Off*Beat chibi keychain

$100 package: Everything above + poster signed by Jen Lee Quick herself

Submissions, animation, Kickstarter, oh my!

We’re happy to say that we reached our primary goal on the Off*Beat reprint Kickstarter, and we’ve added stretch goals for the last ~10 days of the fundraiser. The response to this Kickstarter has been terrific, proving that our upcoming readership is already awesome. Pat yourselves on the back and then get your friends to pledge, to unlock free goodies for everyone! We really want to do that Off*Beat audio drama. Seriously.

We’ve released our first piece of animation from the talented Angela (http://guzusuru.tumblr.com/) as a trailer for our series Tokyo Demons. View the trailer below, also featuring the work of Moonklutz, Alex O’Shea, and Rebecca Scoble of Tokyo Demons Audio:

Tokyo Demons, Book 1: You’re Never Alone received two new reviews this week: a strong recommendation from Ash of Experiments in Manga and a great feminist critique from Oyceter.

For you creators, we’ve officially announced details on our next round of submissions this summer – which will be completely open to the public. Real all about it here: http://chromaticpress.com/magazine/

Chromatic Press will be running a publisher’s table at the Toronto Comic Arts Festival (TCAF) in a few weeks, and a table in Artist Alley for Otakon this August. For those of you attending, stop by to get some sneak peeks of Sparkler Monthly and geek out in general.
