Just a few minutes ago the amount of money funded through Indiegogo went past $1,100, meaning The Sundays #3 will be finished and those of you who contributed will get your comic books.
I just want to point out that there are still a lot of great perks left to snag before the campaign ends in the next day and a half. There are still 15 sketch covers left, 17 pages of original art from the comic, 4 slots to be drawn in the background (and get the original art of that page), and the original artwork for the cover is still available.

Holy crap, we’re just two-and-a-half days from the end of the Indiegogo campaign, and have less than $200 left to raise! It’s looking good for The Sundays #3 meeting its goal!
So this is the point where we need you guys the most. Share a link to the campaign on your Facebook or Twitter, or kick in a dollar if you haven’t already. We’re so close!!!
This comic hasn’t been updated in a few months because I’ve got a few different projects going on simultaneously. Because I don’t make any money drawing The Sundays, this comic is something I do in my spare time, when I’m caught up on all my other work. However, I have a baby on the way and I realized yesterday that my free time soon will be zero. If I don’t get some money to finish this issue, it’s never going to be finished.
With that in mind, I’ve launched an Indiegogo campaign to help fund the rest of the issue. By kicking in a few dollars, that allows me to focus energy on completing the third issue so I don’t have to take other illustration work to pay my bills.
There are lots of cool perks you can get by donating money. For just $1.00 you get a PDF of all three issues, plus your name in the back of the comic in a “thank you” section. For $8.00 you also get a paper copy of the comic, and for $30 you also get this Indiegogo-exclusive sketch cover, on which I will draw your favorite Sundays character. It’s limited to 20 copies and as of this posting there are only 19 copies left to claim, so please hurry if you want one.
And to show that I haven’t forgotten about the comic, here’s a new page that hasn’t gone up on the website yet because I haven’t had a chance to color it yet.
Remember, even just a dollar helps us out tremendously, and you get a 72-page PDF for that price! Even if you can’t help us out monetarily, please give us a link on Facebook or Twitter, or just tell a friend that likes funny comics. Without your help, this comic is probably never going to be finished!
Recently I was browsing through my deviantART gallery, and came across the first ten pages of The Sundays #1 from 2007, when we pitched the comic to a bunch of independent comic publishers. The story’s a little different and the artwork’s a lot more crude, but it’s still a fun read.
In 2009/2010, Kevin and I made a comic strip for DC Comics’ now-defunct webcomic portal Zuda. It was not picked up by them, so we ran the first 10 strips in between Chapters One and Two of The Sundays on our website. However, we’ve decided to remove them from the site now in order to not confuse new readers of The Sundays, so they will live now on the official Sundays Facebook page.
