Thanks Jeff and Lucas.

I wanted to give a special thanks to those in our fraternity that helped by giving us shout outs:

Norm Feuti (Retail, Gil)
Francesco Marciuliano (Sally Forth, Medium Large)
Scott Kurtz (PvP)
Brock Heasly (SuperFogeys)
Oliver Knorzer (Sandra and Woo)
Dawn Griffen (Zorphbert and Fred)
Scotty Arsenault (Commander Kitty)
Wil Panganiban (Frank and Steinway)
Josh Fruhlinger (Comics Curmudgeon)
….and of course Alan Gardner at Daily Cartoonist. :)

See? Syndicated cartoonists, webcartoonists, Comic Sherpans, and bloggers all coming together to help 2 cancelled cartoonists fund a graphic novel. It’s (sniff) beautiful, isn’t it?

-Ed Power,
Cage Writer

Congrats to you and your project! Kickstarter is a great source. I am currently using it to fund my first “Creek” comic-strip collection.

It’s great to see you got that support

Glad Santa VS. Dracula is funded via Kickstarter! Now I hope it gets released by Fall 2012, and maybe at the same time My Cage on gocomics.com is relaunched with new episodes focusing on the married and family life of Norm and Bridget.
