Fans and supporters of Veronica Vera and Oliver Bareham’s Not Enough Rings webcomic will be pleased to know that the Kickstarter raised to fund a physical release of the complete parody series has been covered – and then some!
With the initial goal pitched for $6500, the total went for about triple, reaching $17778 in funds over the past month. With that much money raised, the Not Enough Rings Kickstarter has met the two stretchgoals Vera set forth – hardcover and blue page edges. Final design of the book can be viewed below.
The 355 Not Enough Rings backers who pledged a minimum of $25 will receive the book, cataloguing the entirety of the webcomic before it reaches its end online as well as bonus comics entailing the Sonic 3 Competition Stages, and a full PDF download of the series. Those who pledged more would obtain the Carnival Night barrel Time Over shirt, a signed copy of the book, the Upstage card game based on Vera and Bareham’s Bittersweet Candy Bowl webcomic, a framed Not Enough Rings strip of their choice, and a custom strip based on any Sonic stage.
Estimated delivery of the Kickstarter pledge rewards is set for September of this year.
We know video game webcomics are a dime a dozen. Especially Sonic ones! But in all our years on the internet, we never came across the comic we wanted. No sprite recolors, no tribal Echidna warriors, definitely no werehogs — just a real comic retelling of the remarkable games we grew up playing.
And the Not Enough Rings webcomic (which you can read at your own leisure), spoofing the Genesis saga from Green Hill all the way up to the Doomsday Zone, is nothing short of the latter.
Veronica Vera and Oliver Bareham, the duo behind the affectionate Sonic the Hedgehog parody webcomic, are hoping to bring their work into print form, with a Kickstarter page gone live since yesterday. Going for a minimum goal of $6,500, the Not Enough Rings Kickstarter has already reached $5,300, and is open for donations up until July 19th!
Supporters can nab themselves a copy of the 106-page comic for as little as $25, but shipping will cost extra for those outside of the United States. Extra rewards include a signed copy of the book, a TIME OVER t-shirt featuring the Carnival Night barrel, a framed strip from the comic of your choice, advance copies of the Upstage card game for Bittersweet Candy Bowl (the duo’s main project), and if you’re downright insane, a Not Enough Rings-esque strip of any stage of any Sonic game of your choosing!
The only stretch goal to this project is to cover the funds to upgrade the books themselves into hardcover copies, the goal itself being a now realistic $10,500. Perks of supporting this project also include reading the already completed webcomic before it’s been fully uploaded online, as well as strips dedicated to the Sonic 3 Competition stages – BOOK EXCLUSIVE. Now THAT is a good deal.
That being said, head on over to the Kickstarter page and help this labour of love come to fruition!
