Kickstarter Update: We’re Thousandaires!
You hungry nerds are amazing!
Late last night, the Kitchen Overlord Illustrated Geek Cookbook crossed an imaginary line of epic significance when we reached $10,000 in support. I may not have to harvest my minion’s kidneys to pay for the printing after all!
We’re celebrating each financial victory by thanking you. First, we gave you Carbs Against Humanity, then a special episode of GameStorming, and now everyone who buys a copy of the print book is also getting a free caricature of Sulu with a skewer of Tribble Kabobs.
To celebrate reaching $10,000, we’re offering backers a shiny new Add-On – recipe postcards!
For $10, you get six full color postcards with Tom’s art on the front, the recipe on the back, and a little space for either notes for yourself or a taunting message to your friends. The postcards will include these popular Kitchen Overlord recipes plus one surprise.
- 1-Up Mushroom Rolls
- Alien Xenomorph Eggs
- Gelatinous Cube Jello Shots
- Eye of Sauron
- Spanish Rice Inquisition
- Surprise Recipe!
When we hit $11,000, backers who buy the print book will ALSO get a print of Kiera Cameron eating a Terry’s Chocolate Orange, for lo, I love Continuum, and you should, too.
Since some of you save all your time travel love for Doctor Who, if we hit $13,000 we’re also giving everyone who picks up a print copy of the book a caricature of Captain Jack Harkness. There’s even a Captain Mal in the mix if we hit $17,000. I plan to frame them both so it looks like they’re fighting to the death over cheesecake.
If you haven’t voted for the fandom you want to see in the cookbook, head over to the comments and make your voice heard! There’s already one Firefly recipe in the book, but so far, most folks are voting for us to add a second. Since you’ve asked, here’s a complete list of all the fandoms currently represented in the book:
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Cthulhu (HP Lovecraft)
Dungeons and Dragons
Game of Thrones
The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
The Hunger Games
Lord of the Rings
Nightmare Before Christmas
Once Upon A Time
The Princess Bride
Sherlock Holmes (Arthur Conan Doyle)
Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
Star Trek: The Original Series
Soylent Green/Make Room, Make Room!
Super Mario Brothers
The Time Machine (HG Wells)
The Walking Dead
World War Z
Once more, thank you so much for making this possible. There’s no way either Tom or I could afford to print this book without your support. It’s amazing to see so much reader support for our crazy illustrated labor of love.
