Damn, it’s been a long time since we chatted. That’s mostly my fault. I kind of abandoned you, and I feel bad about that. Especially because of the reason—the dreaded ‘B’ word.
Yup, I’ve been busy. Too busy to write or catch up over a cup of coffee or even think about anything but the Kickstarter for my husband’s and my comic book storage solution, the Comic Boox Box. I talked about it here. Every moment I wasn’t working my day job I was project managing the shit out of our Kickstarter campaign. And about two weeks before we were supposed to launch, we got some devastating news that made us hit the brakes with a squeal, leaving skid marks like those at the Indy 500—or my father-in-law’s underpanties on almost any given day.
And then I plummeted into this weird no-man’s land of, “What the hell do I do now?” You know, kind of like what happens to Bridezillas once their weddings are over and they have to actually do the marriage thing.
It’s time to reveal the reason for my recent little hiatuses (here and here) and all my Vaguebooking on Facebook (I know, really annoying). My husband and I are introducing our “baby” to the world: the COMIC BOOX BOX.
Last Saturday we took our little darling on her first outing to Capes Kafé for a comic-themed event called Capes Crafts & Cosplay, put on by Market Day Iowa.
She was very well-received, and we were so proud!
Our little half-pint, literally. She’s half the size she’ll be when she’s all grown up.
We’ll be launching our Kickstarter campaign in early 2015 so we can make thousands more of our little offspring. For those of you who don’t know, Kickstarter is a crowdfunding platform where creators and backers come together to bring all sorts of wonderful little babies into the world. Check out their “Seven things to know about Kickstarter” page for an excellent tutorial.
We’d be honored if you’d take a look at our baby’s birth announcement on our website, Facebook and Twitter pages. And to stay on top of all the latest COMIC BOOX BOX news, be sure to subscribe to our email list—we’ll be sending messages to subscribers as we ramp up to the launch of our Kickstarter campaign and of course when it’s live.
The utility belt is to Batman what the COMIC BOOX BOX is to comics…the ultimate storage solution.
