Three Reasons Why the I AM QIDO campaign should appeal to you: The Savvy Consumer
In the third article in our 'Three Reasons Why' series, we talk about how our this campaign will provide value to you in these tough economic times
In the third part of our THREE REASONS WHY series leading up to the launch of I AM QIDO (in just a few hours ahhhh! Monday 08.28.23 at 11am EST. Follow / bookmark and Back here), we address one of the most important aspects - why this should appeal to YOU: the savvy CONSUMER.
(You’ll want to hang around to the very bottom of this article TRUST US!)
So here we go!
ONE: IT'S A COMPLETE STORY WITH A PAYOFF
As odd as it might sound, this will be a first for #TeamINSYM: A full-length release where the entire story-arc is told all in a single volume. Most of what we do is either long-form with multiple issues (see HEIRS OF ISILDUR or TALES FROM NOCTURNIA) or short quick hits (MISFITZ CLUBHOUSE or our many anthology shorts). Having to make sure that the FULL story was told all at once, while also providing the twists and turns that one would expect out of their entertainment was a fun and rewarding exercise.
We've made sure there are swerves and twists, but most importantly: PAYOFFS. We know how frustrating it is as a consumer to invest TIME (or in this case TIME and DOLLARS), and get to the end of any form of entertainment and feel like the writers had a 'concept' but no 'conclusion'. We aren't going to waste your time like that. We know where we’re going.
Is EVERY loophole closed? Of course not. Is there room for other stories to potentially be told in the future? Possibly. Of course this ties into QIDO, who now resides in Shadow's Haven (the main location in HEIRS OF ISILDUR), but we are confident that when you get to the end of this volume, you'll truly feel like HIS story in the YAMARAN EMPIRE will be complete.
TWO: IT PROVIDES VALUE TO WHAT YOU'RE GETTING WITH YOUR PLEDGE
We know times are tough. We know that it's HARD to part with money right now for entertainment. This was one of the main drivers for us to release this as a single perfect-bound book, instead of splitting it up into multiple comic issues. From a campaign backer standpoint, the value is obvious. One graphic novel price (even if slightly higher) and one shipping charge. If this same book were split across THREE Kickstarter campaigns, you'd end up spending approx. double to get the same story, AND shipping would be TRIPLED (three campaigns vs one.) That's $25-$40 you'll SAVE for us to do it this way as opposed to splitting it up.
THREE: OUR SUPPORT MERCH IS TOP QUALITY
We know many on Kickstarter are collectors. We want you to feel like getting your hands on our merch will be a worthy addition to your collection. Of course we want our cover art and variants to be top quality, but it wouldn't be Matt and Steph and a #TeamINSYM campaign without the SWAG. We're known for our SOCKS, and they're back this time. SHIRTS? Yep and with two symbols / emblems we hope transcend the story itself (similar to how the Double Dragon symbol did from Tales From Nocturnia). Our partnership with GB LEATHERWORKS is back in full force as well, this time with one of our most amibitious projects ever - the SOUL RIPPER wearable leather mask! Smaller collectibles are available as well, but we want those of you that want to go BIG to have the opportunity to do so!
Is it a RISK for us to release I AM QIDO all as one book? Absolutely. We know the market pressures and the immense competition that's out there, but we're confident in our story, the art, and the products that surround it. We're also confident in you, our friends and supporters, that you'll step up to the plate and hit a home run for us with your support.
All this being said - you’ve made it to the end of this article BOOYAH! So as a reward - you get to view the ENTIRE CAMPAIGN EARLY - it launches at 11am EST on 08.28.23 - but you can see it NOW! One super cool aspect is that you can view TWO COVERS that have NOT YET BEEN REVEALED (Covers C and D)!
