It's been a year but Slang Pictorial #4 is all complete and ready to launch here on Kickstarter this week!

Coming to Kickstarter THIS WEEK

I am going to be offering a couple of Early Bird rewards that will be available only for the first day of the campaign, so make sure you get your pledges in nice and early!

Francoise Hardy print

The first Early Bird Reward is going to be an exclusive Slang Pictorial Françoise Hardy print. These individually numbered full-colour double sided prints are an homage to Hardy’s 1962 album Tous les garçons et les filles and will also feature some Prolix hand-lettered typography on the reverse. These are going to go out only to everyone who backs the campaign - at one of the physical reward tiers - within the first twenty four hours from when the campaign goes live. This print won't be added to any of the other tiers during the campaign and so the only way to snag yourself one is to jump on board on day one!

A little piece of Slang Pictorial history

The exclusive print is going to be great but THIS is the Early Bird Reward I'm most excited about and have been eagerly waiting to announce! If you've ever stopped by table at a comic convention you no doubt have thumbed thru my folder of original comic artwork. Since issue #3 I've been drawing the comic on A3 Bristol Board but back in 2015 when The Sheep And The Wolves began life as a web-comic, I actually used to draw the strip at a smaller size, inking straight over my pencils in order to keep up with the pace of posting new pages weekly.

So for this Kickstarter only, I will be giving the FIRST 20 BACKERS who pledge at any physical reward tier ONE of those ORIGINAL A4 pages each! These are the ONLY Prolix pages you're ever going to see at this size and these really are a unique snapshot of Slang Pictorial history. You can literally see me working out character designs, world building and developing an art style right there on the page, complete with whiteout and even panels cut and pasted in place. Make sure you get your pledge in quick!

The best way to ensure you are in with a chance to grab one of these Early Bird Rewards is to follow me on Kickstarter and subscribe to my fortnightly newsletter using the form in the sidebar.

I'll be back in the next few days to announce Kickstarter going live!

Keep 'em peeled!
