    Gold Digger; FREDeral Reserve

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1915262526/fred-perrys-gold-digger-frederal-reserve-gold-bric It's time to print and release the newest volume of the GOLD BRICK SERIES, the GOLD DIGGER FREDeral Reserve which compiles a multitude of the Gold Digger spin-offs and ancillary series. If you supported the previous Gold Bricks, thank you very much, and we hope you support this campaign too. With a load of great standalone and continuity pickup stories, this collection makes a great jumping-on point for any new readers, as well as awesome reading for longtime fans. THESE ISSUES HAVE NEVER BEEN COLLECTED INTO ONE VOLUME BEFORE. Between its black-and-white and full-color issues, the main Gold Digger series is fast approaching the 300-issue mark and is going strong! (Including material like that being compiled into the FREDeral Reserve, GD is already well past that milestone!) If you're not familiar with us, my name is Joeming Dunn, and I run Antarctic Press, a small, independent comic company started in 1984. I have personally collected comics of almost every type and genre since 1974, and I can say that during the past 30 years, we have published some of the greatest and best independent comics out there. Our publishing history includes titles like Gold Digger and Ninja High School. The comic industry has changed over the years, so we have started this Kickstarter program to help introduce new projects from our talented group of creators. Prominent among the many series we have published over the years is Fred Perry's ingenious title, Gold Digger, which Fred describes as a mixture of Indiana Jones and Final Fantasy. The idea for Gold Digger was first conceived during Fred's tour of duty in the first Gulf War, and it debuted in Antarctic Press's anthology comic, Mangazine, in 1991. A four-issue miniseries followed in 1992, and a regular monthly black-and-white series followed starting in 1993. The current color series began in 1999 and has continued since then. It is the second-longest-running solo-created title in the industry. Among comic books with female leads, its run is second only to Wonder Woman. In 2013, Fred was honored at Comic Con International in San Diego, where he received an Inkpot Award for his work on Gold Digger. Over the past years, we have released other Gold Bricks as Kickstarter projects. This Gold Brick is outside the numbering system of the main-series Bricks, so no potentially confusing volume numbers this time! If you haven't seen or read Gold Digger, this is your chance to enjoy one of the best and longest-running ongoing series in comics. Like the other Bricks, this one lets new readers join in easily, so you don't have to be shy! Over the next few years, we'll go back to reprint the other volumes to match the new Kickstarter printings' format. We want everyone to have nice editions. In addition to reasons already mentioned, during previous campaigns, many backers have asked us to collect these series, since many of these issues are difficult to find. So what is included in this Gold Brick? A Science Affair Asrial vs Cheetah GD Minus 18 Gina vs Penny (GvP) Gold Digger Dreadwing's Mymior Gold Digger Adventures WHEW...that's quite a line up. What are we going to do with the Kickstarter money? Plain and simple, we're going to print and ship the Gold Digger FREDeral Reserve Gold Brick. The FREDeral Reserve Gold Brick is over 600 pages, many of which are in full color. Printing the actual books is the biggest single expense. The first print run of a typical Gold Brick is quite costly, as most printers require a minimum run to make it cost-effective. We are thus using Kickstarter to assist us with those costs. If the amount seems high, you must remember that we are printing at least a thousand copies of a 600+ page book. Another cost is shipping: First we will have to ship the books from the printer to our offices, and once we get them, send copies to all our supporters and distributors. Several thousand pounds of books represents a significant shipping expense. Here is a breakdown of our expenses. Printing: $12,500 (which includes hard and softcover) Shipping: $3,000 (Sending a 600-page book is costly, especially overseas. The cost for shipping just one copy overseas is now around $34.) Fees: $1500 (Kickstarter takes their fees off the top) Handling/Supplies: $1500 (We have to pay for boxes and pay people to pack those boxes.) That does not include cost for sending the large PDF files to all the supporters and other miscellaneous costs. Those basic expenses total $18,500. So what do you get? The brick is 6 x 9 inches and will contain AT LEAST the series we mentioned above.
  2. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1915262526/fred-perrys-gold-digger-colorized-part-4/description About Help us colorize the original Black and White Gold Digger series by creator Fred Perry. If you're not familiar with us, my name is Joeming Dunn, and I run Antarctic Press, a small, independent comic company started in 1984. I have personally collected comics of almost every type and genre since 1974, and I can say that during the past 30 years, we have published some of the greatest and best independent comics out there. Our publishing history includes titles like Gold Digger and Ninja High School. The comic industry has changed over the years, so we have started this Kickstarter program to help introduce new projects from our talented group of creators. You may have seen some of our other successful and fulfilled campaigns. Over the years, we have published a number of series. Prominent among these is Fred Perry's ingenious title, Gold Digger, which Fred describes as a mixture of Indiana Jones and Final Fantasy. The idea for Gold Digger was first conceived during Fred's tour of duty in the first Gulf War, and it debuted in Antarctic Press's anthology comic, Mangazine, in 1991. A four-issue miniseries followed in 1992, and a regular monthly black-and-white series followed starting in 1993. The current color series began in 1999 and has continued since then. It is the second-longest-running solo-created title in the industry. In 2013, Fred was honored at Comic Con International in San Diego, where he received an Inkpot Award for his work on Gold Digger. One of our most frequently received fan requests over the years is, "When can I see the original black-and-white series of Gold Digger in color?" Getting a book colored is not an easy proposition due to the cost and time involved, and both of those commodities are scarce in the independent publishing world. But with Kickstarter, it is now possible to achieve that goal. We experimented with a previous Kickstarter (Gold Brick 7), and due to its success, we were able to color the first two issues of the black-and-white series. So back in June of 2016, we ran the first part of this campaign, and we were able to COLORIZE 5 ISSUES. With such encouraging response, we made successive colorizing campaigns. Out of the 50 black-and-white issues, a total of 15 have been colorized thus far. Here is a small sample of what's been done. Below are original and colored pages from Gold Digger #6, colorized thanks to one of our previous Kickstarters. What we would like to do is to continue this process with issue #16 of the series, since the first 15 issues are already funded. Here is a PDF link for Gold Digger #16... http://antarcticpresslibrary.com/gdbw/gdbw16.pdf The money collected will go to paying the colorist to perform the task of coloring. And for each $1200 we collect beyond the first, we will color the next issue. For instance, if we collect a total of $2400 with this campaign, we will then proceed to color issue #14; if we collect at least $3600, we'll have issue #15 colored, and so forth and so on. Supporters will receive the PDFs of each completed issue that is colored, and those in the upper pledge tiers will also get the issues that have already been colorized. Wouldn't you like to see the many great Gold Digger moments in color? Theo versus the Lich King, the first appearance of the Leprechaun mecha, Ace's 747 battle against Dark Bird, Gina and Penny's wedgie war, the first appearance of Ryan, and the epic Time Warp saga are but a few of stories that can be eventually colorized. How we budget the money... $1200 Goal $120 Kickstarter Fees (Kickstarter takes 10% for various fees) $150 for Fred...for all his hard work $130 Administration...to manage and send the PDF's to all the supporters $800 for our esteemed colorists...each issues is from 24 to 30 pages long, so that comes to about $25 to $30 per page for them.

    Gold Digger Colour Brick #7

    And here we go with another 25 issues reprinted as a massive brick of comicky goodness.... It's time to print and release the newest volume of the GOLD DIGGER COLOR GOLD BRICK SERIES, which collects issues 201 through 225 of the Gold Digger series. (This is the point at which we merged the 50-issue black-and-white series into the overall numbering.) If you supported the previous color Gold Bricks, thank you very much, and we hope you support this campaign too. With a load of great standalone and continuity pickup stories, this collection makes a great jumping-on point for any new readers, as well as awesome reading for longtime fans. THESE ISSUES HAVE NEVER BEEN COLLECTED INTO ONE VOLUME BEFORE. Between its black-and-white and full-color issues, Gold Digger is fast approaching the 250-issue mark and is going strong!

Over the past years, we have released other Color Gold Bricks as Kickstarter projects. We are now releasing the seventh Color Gold Brick, which features issues 201 through 225 of the Gold Digger series. (This is actually the 9th Gold Brick. More on that below.) If you haven't seen or read Gold Digger, this is your chance to enjoy one of the best and longest-running ongoing series in comics. Like the other Bricks, this one lets new readers join in easily, so you don't have to be shy! Some may ask, "Why skip offering Color Gold Bricks 3 and 4?" We're skipping ahead to print this book because, as noted above, its contents have NEVER PREVIOUSLY BEEN COLLECTED in one volume. Over the years, the run of Gold Digger has been printed in eight Gold Bricks to date. The earliest volumes, Gold Brick 1 and Gold Brick 2, were black and white. Then Fred began his color series, so Bricks 3-6 were printed in color. Gold Brick 3 was originally printed in limited quantities, and Fred's only reference copy became thoroughly destroyed from years of constant use. Kickstarter was used to make this out-of-print edition available again as Color Brick 1. By this time, the original stock of Brick 4 had sold out as well, so we offered a new printing of that through Kickstarter as Color Brick 2. However, since Bricks 5 and 6 were more recently printed, there are still copies available and reprinting is not such a necessity. We're thus skipping ahead, as we did for Gold Brick 7 (Color Brick 5) to collect the material not previously available in this format. The amount of material comes to nearly 200 PAGES MORE than previous volumes, rivaled only by Bricks 6 & 7. (We know this can still be confusing, so we have a numbering guide at the bottom of this page.) Over the next few years, we'll go back to reprint the other volumes to match the new Kickstarter printings' format. We want everyone to have nice editions. In addition to reasons already mentioned, during previous campaigns, many backers have asked if we could skip ahead, since they had already purchased the earlier editions. Skipping ahead allows these backers to have a nice, new volume for their shelves. At the same time, we also help backers who missed the earlier Brick offerings way back in the day to catch up via the reprints.
