Wednesday 10th February was a long day, take it from me. From around 8am till way past 9pm, I was spreadsheeting, wrapping and printing my way to insanity! Why? Because Wednesday was the day the rewards for The Herebey Dragons were sent!
Did it work? As a matter of fact, it did. All of the rewards are wrapped tightly in their envelopes, and making their way to backers now!
This is the first of the self-written Kickstarters that didn’t have the name in the back of the book reward, mainly as it slows production down.
To have to wait for all the surveys to come in, and then to annoy Lyndon to create the backer page in the comic (he’s a busy man) all takes time. And 2021 isn’t a year we have the luxury of time in.
Which brings us on to The Herebey Dragons rewards! Devoid of backer names, we were able to print the comics as the campaign was going on, so they would be ready as soon as it finished. There were a couple of hiccups in timing, but we were all ready to go a week later.
Using our tried and trusted label printing system (more on that here), we had all the post ready in bags by the end of the night. I also had some pretty sore shoulders, too!
It all went pretty smoothly, too. Here are the bags ready to be taken to
Santa the post office. The only issue I had was digging the car out of the snow the next day!
Written by Simon Birks, with art by Eda Çağıl Çağlarırmak and letters by Lyndon White, the comic poses the question: If humans weren’t the first intelligent species on Earth, do we have any rights at all?
You can find all our The Herebey Dragons merch here, including some of the rewards we sent out.
