The Runners: The Big Snow Job Kickstarter project recently passed the $12,000 mark, officially DOUBLING the initial goal amount! Woo-hoo! That is very exciting!

To commemorate the milestone, I am officially announcing the next Kickstarter Stretch Goal for $13,500, which will be a “Battle Royale” print!! This is a really fun piece as it features ALL the major and minor characters from the story arc in cartoony style in one big slugfest. Here are the pencils.

The final image will be 11″ x 17″ and fully inked and colored. It will be issued as a PDF to ALL backers and as a physical print to everyone at the $35 reward level and higher. So please help me in continuing to spread the word about the project so that we can meet the next stretch goal, and check out the Kickstarter page shortly for more announcements, including additional stretch goals and some new reward tiers.

Oh yeah, as a side note, before I launched the campaign, my wife and I had a little bet since we had absolutely no idea how the project would do. She bet it would end under $13,ooo, and if it did, I would give up condiments (mostly ketchup, which she hates) for a full month. I bet it would go over $13,000, in which case she would finally have to stop resisting and watch Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. I am delighted to report that with the passing of the $13k benchmark, my wife will now see one of my top 10 movies. And Ricardo Montalban’s top two pecs.
