Sparks and Monsters: Girl Genius Graphic Novel and Kickstarter Extras

Created by Studio Foglio

Oh no, the Brassy Fobs are once again backordered. Probably for about 30 days, so we're looking at late April. Silvery fobs are still in stock. Shipping to Australia is commencing! We're creeping up on our next Kickstarter campaign! Hooray!

Latest Updates from Our Project:

Announcing Our Latest Girl Genius License: Adventures in Castle Heterodyne!
over 1 year ago – Fri, Sep 04, 2020 at 12:43:21 AM

So, while we're waiting for the BackerKit survey for Queens and Pirates, here's another Kickstarter campaign for your entertainment: Rain Games' Girl Genius, Adventures in Castle Heterodyne! 

This is a Metroidvania-style video game, initially for the PC (including Mac and Linux) and moving on to other platforms where possible. We really like the art Rain has put together so far, especially the mischievous expressions they're getting for Agatha. Perfect!

Having a Girl Genius video game like this has been on our wishlist for a LONG time! If you like video games, we hope you'll back this one, and help us spread the word! 

Thank you!

The Campaign Has Ended! Thank You, Everyone!
almost 2 years ago – Wed, Aug 26, 2020 at 01:04:29 AM

Well, the Sparks and Monsters campaign has ended. Thanks very much to all of our backers! We're astonished and thrilled to see so much participation this time, we really weren't sure what was going to happen. We actually reached more backers this time than in any of our previous campaigns, except for the very first one, where we reprinted nearly everything and things went a little crazy.

SO, now it's time for me to pull the BackerKit surveys together. When the surveys are ready, our backers will get an email with a personal login to the BackerKit campaign manager. This is where you'll calculate and pay for shipping, and any extra items that you choose to add.

At that time, we'll also be opening up the BackerKit store to people who may have missed the campaign. This will be the last chance for the campaign exclusives. 

I'll be posting here to keep everyone up to date about our progress. Watch this space!

New Last Minute Stretch Goals Have Been Added to Girl Genius: Sparks and Monsters!
almost 2 years ago – Tue, Aug 25, 2020 at 07:41:41 PM

There are only four hours left in the Sparks and Monsters campaign, which ends at 11:59 Pacific time tonight (Monday, August 24.) I added a bunch of new stretch goals anyway. This is going to be the most-stuffed Envelope of Madness we've ever done!

If we get to the $170,000 stretch goal, then, aside from the EoM, each level that includes a book will also include one of our Girl Genius posters. This is the one we did two years ago with Kings and Wizards. We had intended to take them to the Summer conventions this year, but that didn't happen, so out they go to backers instead!

And, if we get to the $180,000 goal, each Envelope of Madness will include a Jägermonster Celebration art card in addition to the "Thank You" art card. 

Thank you, everyone, for reading and supporting our work!

We're in the last day of the campaign! BackerKit surveys will go out in a couple of weeks.

The Kickstarter for Girl Genius: Sparks and Monsters is ending today! Thank you so much, everyone! 

A couple of weeks after the campaign ends, we'll send all of our backers an email with a personal login to the BackerKit campaign manager. This is where you'll calculate and pay for shipping, and any extra items that you choose to add.

At that time, we'll also be opening up the BackerKit store to people who may have missed the campaign. This will be the last chance for the campaign exclusives. Something to keep in mind: Kickstarter backers get discounted prices on some of the items in the BackerKit store. It's a perk for backing early!

In other news, we should have an exciting announcement sometime later this week. Stay tuned!

Thanks again--

Girl Genius: Sparks and Monsters has funded. Thank you, everyone!
almost 2 years ago – Fri, Aug 07, 2020 at 03:05:50 AM

The Project has Funded! And it happened in about six hours, which made us very happy. Now I'm in my usual tizzy trying to get all the stretch goals ironed out, but first, I have to get tonight's page finished and uploaded, so give me a bit. I can tell you that we've already passed our first stretch goal, so now everyone above the $10 level will get the PDF version of the book.

Meanwhile, this has been a busy Summer for us, and it isn't over. For instance:

Limited Edition, Signed, Officially Licensed Magic: the Gathering Playmats and Prints by Kaja and Phil Foglio: I promised the folks at the OMA Store (That's Original Magic Art) that I'd let everyone know that their Foglio Portfolio project is in the final stretch of their preorder phase. So, if you're a fan of Ye Olde Magic the Gathering art from the ancient mists of times past, you only have a couple more days to preorder their limited edition, officially licensed signed playmats and prints featuring our MTG art. We'll be signing a WHOLE LOT of these things, what's a few more?

We'll have more news soon! Thanks so much!
