Either yourself or your character (adapted to fit into the Skyvein-verse) makes a cameo in Volume Two! It will be a non-speaking, background appearance, and i can't promise exactly when this reward will be delivered, as it depends when the exact page airs, but it will be within the next volume.
Taisce Brennan inherited a seal coat and empathy magick from their selkie mother. But because their mother vanished when they were a pup, Taisce never learned to control their empathic gift. Now a 24-year-old package courier, they take magick-blocking medication, deliver packages to make ends meet, and generally attempt to avoid running into trouble with The Core—the authoritarian regime that controls all aspects of life above the clouds. Taisce’s humble livelihood is blasted away after an explosion at the postal facility where they work—an explosion blamed on Taisce, who finds themself a fugitive running from The Core.
Skyvein is a fantasy/sci-fi webcomic featuring queer people of color, and it’s written and illustrated by me, sen holiday. All of Volume One (and some of Volume Two!) is free to read online at https://www.skyveincomic.com.
CW: some violence and occasional swearing
This Zoop campaign will bring the first 10 chapters (240 full-color pages) of Volume One to print in a perfect-bound, softcover graphic novel. If the stretch goals are met, i’ll add some exclusive, behind-the-scenes bonus content!
sen holiday is a queer, biracial (korean/white) artist currently living on occupied Dakota and Anishinaabe land, and they’ve been creating Skyvein since 2017.
Skyvein: Volume One is complete and ready for printing, as are all rewards. All stretch goals are at least loosely sketched out. The campaign will end February 24th, wallpapers and PDFs will be delivered March 2022, physical rewards should (barring any delays) ship to me by March/April 2022, physical rewards will ship out to all backers by July 2022 at the latest, and commissions will be delivered by July 2022 at the latest.
This is my first time crowdfunding! The biggest risk would be with the printing and shipping delays, as Skyvein: Volume One is complete and ready for printing, and all the rewards are at least loosely sketched out, if not ready as well. Skyvein is a labor of love and i know that i’ll try my best to get you the best product as timely as possible if we make the goal! What i am confident about is that if anything gets delayed, i will communicate with you, my dear backers, as quickly and thoroughly as possible. Thanks for helping me make this dream of bringing Skyvein to print come true!
And that's a wrap on Day One! More than a third of the way in just one day...! I'm truly so floored and so grateful for all of your support, my lovely, lovely backers! Thank you for coming along on this ride with me. i never expected to get this far on day one.
We've made so much progress already, and i think we can do this thing! Please spread the word about Skyvein to any folks you know who might be interested in a sci-fi/fantasy comic about trying to leave the world a little better than when we found it.
Maybe you know someone who would like to get a commission of their TTRPG (or otherwise) character? Commission offers are few and far between from me, and i don't know when i might offer these again, so if you've wanted a commission from me, now's the time to get it!
That's all for now~ i wish you all a very good and wonderful night, and we'll see what tomorrow brings~ Again, thank you all so much for your support. <3
Zoop does not store or keep your credit card info. Stripe simply holds the credit card info until the end of a successful campaign and then charges it. It is strictly for this one time use and won't charge it ever again.
We use Stripe for checkout because it is VERY secure. They exceed industry security standards and are trusted by thousands of companies, including Amazon, Lyft, Slack, Shopify, and Airbnb, who use Stripe's software tools to accept payments. Their interface is pre-made by them and we don't have the ability to augment it in any way. Once there, you have 15 minutes to complete the transaction by hitting the 'SAVE CARD' button.
Please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll get right back to you!
You could e-mail us at email@example.com with that info during the campaign if you'd like to get it out of the way. Otherwise, we'll be reaching out to all supporters of rewards that require feedback shortly after the campaign is over.
Our campaigns are for a worldwide audience unless stated otherwise in the campaign. All international orders are sold with the terms DAP (Delivered At Place). You are responsible for any duties and taxes required for the shipment's entry into your country. Our carriers may require you to pay taxes and fees related to importation and customs brokerage of your shipment -- but if your item is really low in value, it may fall under the customs de minimis of most countries. For more information, please contact USPS
Since we have an a la carte rewards system, shipping rates will vary from supporter to supporter. We use a weight-based calculation system in your checkout cart, though, so, after you enter your country, you'll be able to see it calculated in real time with each item you add.
If you want to make changes, you should first cancel your original order and then start over with a new one. If you don't do that and simply process an additional order, the way our system is currently set up you may end up being overcharged for shipping -- which we could remedy for you, but it just takes that extra step of catching it and crediting you back the extra shipping, so please try the prior way first.
No - this is it! We're essentially your in-campaign pledge manager. If you are interested in supporting these creators, this is the time to do it! And it's the exact reason we allow you to purchase as many rewards as you want during the campaign!
Rewards are the priority items that the creators have chosen for the campaign. Add-Ons are meant to be secondary items that are 'unlocked' after you buy something from the Reward level. There are no restrictions on buying Rewards, but you can only buy Add-Ons if you've bought a Reward. Zoop sets this up under the direction of the creators. Some may choose to only have Rewards, some may choose an even balance of Rewards and Add-Ons, and others may choose to only have one or two Rewards with the rest of the items being Add-Ons.
YES! We encourage you to get more than 1 item! That could be multiple copies of the same reward, or you can mix and match rewards! There is no limit, unless otherwise stated in the reward description.
