Mine! features stories about trailblazing women like Margaret Sanger and Emma Goldman, civil rights leaders like Gloria Richardson, a person's first time going to a Planned Parenthood, debunking myths about sex, STI screenings, HIV/AIDS treatment and prevention, as well as fantastical stories with superheroes, Greek mythology, and a future both with and without Planned Parenthood.

Hey Everyone,

Thank you all so much for all your support! We not only blew past 100% funded, but are well on our way to 105% funded and 1500 backers! We’re so glad to see all of the people that love comics and support Planned Parenthood coming together.

As promised, here are our first two stretch goals that we said we’d roll out. With your help we know we can work towards making these happen!

Stretch Goals!

At $60k, we will make a hardcover edition available!

At $75k, we will make a Spanish language edition available! This will take time, as we don't know how long it will take someone to translate Mine!

We also want to give a reminder to everyone that we a Kickstarter exclusive Mark Wheatley full color 11x17 art print from the work he’s doing with Neil Gaiman for Mine! They’re limited to 100 signed and numbered by Mark, and for a pledge of $100 or more you’ll get to own one along with a copy of Mine!

almost 2 years ago – Mon, Sep 04, 2017 at 03:19:37 PM

Hey Everyone,

We hit another milestone today! Over $30,000 raised meaning we've raised over 60% of the funds in just 12 days! We still have 19 more days to go and we're not slowing down!

We want to thank all of you for sharing, pledging, tweeting, and showing your support. It means the world to us. 

More art is coming in as well, so we wanted to show you. Below is an illustration of an Emma Goldman action figure for a fake ad you'll be seeing in Mine! Emma Goldman is just one of the many incredible and important feminist icons that we'll be highlighting in this book.

Thank you all again for helping us start this week off strong. We're looking forward to giving you more updates and showing you all more art as it comes in. 

All the best,

Joe and Molly
