Vessels #2 Kickstarter sets record!

Hey Card Sharks, Dave here with an update on our Vessels #2 Kickstarter, which ended yesterday at 126% funded – our new crowdfunding record! Our 203 backers helped us raise £3260, which means we hit two stretch goals: Passing 200 backers means everyone gets this Wake print: And passing £3100 means all £10 backers get the same design in a keyring. Vessels #2 launches in July and will be available to buy for non-backers at this year’s Thought Bubble convention in Leeds. Stay tuned to the Card Shark Comics Facebook page for production updates and new art as development...
