The Heroes of Homeroom C Kickstarter has ended.

It’s not how many times you get knocked down. It’s how many times you get back up.

Friends, family and fans,

First of all, I want to thank each and every one of the over 180 of you who made a pledge to support Heroes Of Homeroom C. Unfortunately, as you can see, the campaign did not meet it’s $15,000 funding goal but I am SO grateful to each of you taking the time and making the effort to pledge your money and support the book. And thank you again to those of you who spread the word about the project with the kind of vigour you did. I hope you will do so once again when the project relaunches in six-to-eight weeks.

That’s right. Heroes of Homeroom C is, by no means, a dead project. I intend to relaunch crowdfunding for the book here on Kickstarter in late April or early May. It will be a new 30-day campaign with a new LOWER funding goal and some NEW reward packages thrown into the mix.

This campaign is only a failure if I don’t learn from the process and don’t improve how I do things the next time around. I think that, this Spring, you’ll see that improvement with the new campaign and that, this summer, we will all get a chance to hold copies of this fantastic book in our hands and enjoy the story.

In the meantime, please visit the front page at and use the form at the bottom of the front page to sign up for our mailing list.  It’s really the very best way to keep up-to-date on our progress with the comic and our work to relaunch the Kickstarter. I want to keep in as close contact as possible with you: the amazing people who support my work and who support the notion of diverse comics for a diverse audience.

Before I leave you tonight, I have a question. Something that could help make the relaunch even better. When you looked through the Reward Tiers for this campaign, was there something you thought was missing? Is there something you would like to see included in the Reward Tiers for the relaunch? If so, please let me know! If your suggestion is something we can include, we will make an effort to do so.
