    https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/earthworm-jim-the-comic-book/#/

    It's got a comic book from the creator of Earthworm Jim (Doug TenNapel), a book about the creation of the games (The Making of Earthworm Jim), and some trading cards. Depending on which perks you select, of course. It's currently at 3165% of it's $12,000 goal ($379,820).

    Bigfoot Bill is backer-exclusive, from what he's said, so the Earthworm Jim stuff might be, too. There's only nine days left in the campaign, so hurry up and back it. You know, if you want to.

    EDIT (July 4th, 11:14 PM): It's now at $400,528.
    EDIT (July 5th, 9:05 PM): It's now at $413,383.
    EDIT (July 6th, 4:38 PM): It's now at $421,358.
    EDIT (July 7th, 10:45 PM): It's now at $437,040. (Just doing this because I think it's cool to see how it keeps going up)
    EDIT (July 9th, 1:00 AM): It's now at $459,695.
    EDIT (July 9th, 10:18 PM): It's now at $485,739. (Biggest jump, so far.)
    EDIT (July 10th, 5:53 PM): It's now at $503,086. Also, something that I've forgotten to mention is that Doug regularly updates the Indiegogo page with stretch goals. Right now, 19 have been met, and there will probably be another 1-2 met by tonight, since the next ones are at 505k and 515k. Stuff like a free poster, some card packs, a cloth patch, embossing and foil on the books, and so on.
    EDIT (July 11th, 10:02 PM): It's now at $545,737. Jesus. I guess people are being urged on by the looming deadline?
    EDIT (July 12th, 8:31 PM): It's now at $618,236. Yeah, I think it's the looming deadline.
    EDIT (July 13th, 1:09 AM): It's now at $678,042.

    I was thinking about getting it but the shipping cost is insane, the signed fan bundle is €60.00 which is fine but the shipping is another €65.00, that's crazy. Its not just my location either, it seems to be a flat charge worldwide except the united states which is €20.00 and Canada which is €50.00. Someone in the U.K. for example is paying the same shipping as Australia.

    Jeez. €65.00? Here I thought that the $12 for just the comic book was bad enough. Yeah, I can't blame you for not buying it. Maybe try sending him a message to ask about it?

    I think it just goes to show there's still a massive demand for comic books the mainstream market can't seem to exploit, or that indigiegogos or kickstarters are currently the greatest ways to market them.

    Oh, absolutely. Though I'm sure it helps that Earthworm Jim was a really popular set of games.

    Eh, I can’t say I was much of an Earthworm Jim fan as a kid. Still, good for them I guess.
