Thank you all so much for your support over the years on Tumblr! Steve Lichman started on here and you all gave us the confidence to make it a full series of books so we really appreciate everything you’ve done to help spread the word :).

Hey everyone!

First of all, thank you all so much for the support! The Steve Lichman Kickstarter has been a huge success, and I can't thank you enough for helping share Steve around and enjoying the comics!

We're coming up on the end of the Kickstarter with only 5 days left! If you'd like to pre-order the book, it's 230 pages, Hardcover, and is entirely completed. The Kickstarter is in place so we can fund the self-publishing!

Pre-Order the 230 page Hardcover here!

Thanks again for all your support, it really means everything to Dan and I. Without you we wouldn't be able to stay independent and pursue our dream projects!
