There are several stiffly-priced reward tiers, including a Strangehaven bookplate by yours truly. According to the Down the Tubes website, the collection will feature a new cover by Sally Jane Thompson.
You can find the IndieGoGo crowdfunding campaign for the Collected Meanwhile… here. The campaign is live now and runs through to June 5th.
Existing readers will be even happier to hear that Meanwhile… #10, featuring the newest episode of Strangehaven: Destiny will be crowdfunded shortly afterwards with a release slated for August and Meanwhile…#11 is scheduled for November.
