Our Kickstarter is live! Not only is it live, but it’s only been up for 48 hours and already our amazing fans have pledged more than half of our target! Thank you so much to everyone, this is so exciting it asplodes my brain.
The project is to make Exocomics collected volumes 1 & 2, of 100 comics each, plus loads of extra art and content. Go see the project page for all the details: cool exclusive stuff is available for backers!
Further awesome news: We are super lucky to be able to work with award-winning, perfectionist print expert Kyra from Threaded Magazine! The books are gonna be so awesome, you don’t even know.
Finally, some more awesome news: if the project is successful, I will resign my job and do Exocomics full time! If that happens, I want to release comics more frequently, and work on some new ideas I have for projects, both with Exocomics and totally new stuff.
Jump on twitter or facebook, or the kickstarter project page to keep up with project developments. Thanks everyone!

I read every Wednesday and would love to help out but i have no money's just wanted to let you know im rooting for you

Well... i know 48 hours may not be very relevant, statisticaly speaking, but you got 1/3 of your goal on the first day, which is fantastic. Then 1/6 was added on the second day, which is still awesome. But i hope this trend does not continue because
1/3 + 1/6 + 1/12 + 1/24 + ... + 1/(3*2^n) = 2/3... 66%!
WHY DO YOU HATES US, MATH?

Woo! That would be awesome to do Exocomics full time. I wish you luck in your endeavor.
Becca5 Apr '12
Wow, Li! That's so awesome! I read your comics every week, and it's great to see it coming along like this. :)
Lou5 Apr '12
Seriously Li? A commercial/ad instead of a comic?
I am disappoint.
Betsy5 Apr '12
They should call you Li-Mix-A-Lot, 'cause you got back(ed).
*nervously tugs at collar* yeee.
But srsly, congrats! The internet people love you!
Tim5 Apr '12
the comic is on the kickstarter page!
I am disappoint at your sense of entitlement.
RMG5 Apr '12
Good luck on your kickstarter, already pledged :)
Wouldn't recommend quitting your job though, a stable income provides security. Unless you REALLY hate your job :p
Tyler Weber5 Apr '12

As said on FB: Bad Li for not writing earlier on the blog about it - but i'm so looking forward to holding them in my hand. <3 Your strips always make my day.
vikram6 Apr '12
well i'd be happy to contribute..only if this was a funnier/more interesting/better in some way webcomic.
Ian6 Apr '12
Turns out the kickstarter was kind of like your last comic! :D Grew so fast!
Tobokeru7 Apr '12
Longing for new comic T____T
Jacki7 Apr '12

" if the project is successful, I will resign my job and do Exocomics full time!"
Well holy congratulations there, I think you've got that one down. :D
Edd8 Apr '12
Finally :D The book
reddingreading9 Apr '12
Question: Can I get the books even if I don't pledge? I want to buy them, but the only way on the pledge thing that I could get them is if I give my whole month's salary (I am a poor college student!).

@vikram: You, sir, are a carcass fit for hounds. Take your foolish disdain elsewhere; Li's art is magical.
