Sex & Violence: Vol. 2 campaign winding up; NoiseTrade and Reddit

Hey gang,

We’re now a week out from the end of the SEX & VIOLENCE: Vol. 2 campaign. It’s been a great campaign so far thanks to all of your wonderful support. With 7 days to go, we’re a little over $3,000 away from unlocking the $40K stretch goal. We can get there!  If you’re wondering what you can do to help unlock that stretch goal, you can share on Facebook or Twitter not only the SEX & VIOLENCE: Vol 2 page but also some of the cool press coverage the project has gotten this month.

Here are just a few of our favorites:

We’ll be on all sorts of panels, including “Listen to Jimmy” and a panel about how to run a Kickstarter campaign. And there’s gonna be a cool exclusive top secret thing that our fans will like that’ll be announced this week. You can buy tix here: http://longbeachcomiccon.com/

If you’re on the east coast, don’t worry. Jimmy, Amanda and Dave are coming to New York Comic Con on October 9th to 12. There’s all sorts of cool things that will be happening at the show. You can buy tix here:

If you’re a fan of PAINKILLER JANE, you can head over to Noisetrade‘s growing library of graphic novels. You can download the book for free, or you can choose to donate. Jimmy is a supporter of this site and always send a few bucks. Check it out if you are interested.  And for those of you who have been chasing down some of our past Kickstarter projects, make sure you swing on over to our website, www.paperfilms.com and check out our shop.  Besides both print and digital versions of our Kickstarter projects, we also have some convention Amanda Conner prints plus a newly added to the site, Amanda Conner sketchbook.  It is a great way to directly support the PaperFilms team!

Reasons PaperFilms loves our local Comic Stores

Everyone here at the PaperFilms team loves our local Comic Stores.  Even if we have our books in digital format, even if we use the Kickstarter format to distribute our books, we still always work with and support as many of our local Comic Retailers.  What is better is if we are able to have our a store come up to us and offer up a wonderful opportunity to spotlight the team.

When a wonderful staffer at B&M Amusement approached us about doing a spotlight on Jimmy Palmiotti and said he had worked out  an idea to help not only promote the creator but try to draw new readers into our projects, we quickly worked out the details and jumped in.  Tyler went all out.

If you’re in the area, be sure to check out for the month of September the spotlight on Jimmy Palmiotti and the other PaperFilms team:

And as we continue on the Labor Day holiday, we have been so thankful to reach our stated goal for Sex & Violence: Vol. 2 but we’re not looking to stop.  We’ve already got one stretch goal announced and we’ve got a couple other items cooked up that we’ll be posting soon.  So, if you’ve ever considered backing a Kickstarter by the PaperFilms team, now is a good time.  We’ve got plenty of options to purchase both the current project but also snag a copy of Sex & Violence: Vol. 1 with a new Amanda Conner and Dave Johnson cover.  This is important as of right now, we have no more copies of Vol. 1 (first print).  A testament to everyone’s desire to support these projects.  We can’t thank you enough.

Head on over to the Sex & Violence: Vol. 2 Kickstarter page to join the madness!
Have a wonderful holiday folks!
