We are in the last 24 hours of our KLAATU KICKSTARTER campaign and we're pointing to the bleachers!

Our goal is always to put quality into our books first - and now that we've achieved multiple Stretch Goals geared towards book upgrades we can get to the fun ones!


  • A double-sided 18x24 poster featuring both A (Scott Hepburn!) and B (Ramón K Pérez) cover art from the book!
  • The addition of French Flaps to the cover of the book!
  • The addition of a custom neon ink to the cover of the book!
  • A 3-pack magnet set featuring the colourful and creepy RAIDthing!
  • The addition of 10 pages to the book, plus upgraded cover stock to 100lb. 

ALL our physical book backers will receive the above items, but we hope we can also send you ...


  • $55K / RAID collectible card 
  • $60K / Dead Cosmonaut Enamel Pin

You can read more about these Stretch Goals below. Tell your friends, family, co-workers, bus driver... you name it, and let's unlock these new awesome gifts for YOU our devoted readers...

KICKSTARTER /  These stretch goals would be a dream but we are optimistic that enough of our fans will help to pull it off.

At $55K (Canadian) everyone will get a holographic collector card featuring the loveable RAIDthing! We hope this will be the beginning of a RAID Collector Card series - packs of which we would include in every campaign we do!

And then here is the doozy... 

At $60k (Canadian) a Dead Cosmonaut hard enamel pin with a gold finish designed by Ramón K Pérez.

This will be a FREE gift to all physical backers if we are able to hit our $60K mark before the clock runs on Thursday @ 9:00 PM EST.
