All the best and thanks again — and see you at Bergen Street Comics on the First of May!

Coulton to record new acoustic album if “Code Monkey Save World” graphic novel Kickstarter hits $200,000


By Greg Pak
Big news — the “Code Monkey Save World” graphic novel Kickstarter that Jonathan Coulton and I launched last week hit its last stretch goal and now the book’s page count has increased to 96 pages.
So here’s our next big stretch goal:
If the Kickstarter hits $200,000, Jonathan Coulton will record a BRAND NEW ALBUM of gorgeous acoustic renditions of all of the songs that inspired the graphic novel! And everyone who has backed us at the $15 level and above will get the digital version of this brand new album FOR FREE, as a BONUS.
Songs on the album will include “Code Monkey,” “Skullcrusher Mountain,” “The Future Soon,” “Creepy Doll,” “I Crush Everything,” “Re: Your Brains,” and several more I’m probably forgetting right now because I’m so excited.
We’re also thinking about adding a few special guest star singers and musicians — more to be announced soon, knock on wood!
And here’s a BONUS for you… everyone who backs the project at the $35 level and above will now get a FREE POSTER! The posters will be approximately 10.25″ x 13″ and will be folded once for shipping purposes. They’ll probably feature the amazing “Code Monkey Save World” cover art by Takeshi Miyazawa, colored by Jessica Kholinne.
Finally, we’re adding an incredibly special $750 pledge level. At this level, you and a guest can come to the studio to watch part of Jonathan Coulton’s recording session for the acoustic album live in New York City, probably some time in June. We’ll also take you to lunch. Travel/lodging/other expenses not included. But at this level, we’ll also toss in all the swag we’ve announced thus far — T-shirt, mug, poster, music, stickers. INSANE, am I right?
Thanks so much for the consideration and support! Tell your friends! Call your mom! Hugs all ’round!

Pledge to the “Code Monkey Save World” Kickstarter!


This Monday morning, internet superstar musician Jonathan Coulton and I launched a Kickstarter for “Code Monkey Save World,” a graphic novel based on Jonathan’s songs, written by yours truly, and drawn by the great Takeshi Miyazawa with colors by Jessica Kholinne and letters by Simon Bowland.
The story follows the coding monkey known as Code Monkey (from Jonathan’s song “Code Monkey,” natch) as he teams up with the supervillain Skullcrusher (from “Skullcrusher Mountain”) to save his unrequited love Matilde from Laura the Robo Queen’s slave colonies on Chiron Beta Prime.
It’s crazy sci fi with a big fuzzy heart and I hope you’ll consider backing us. We’re ridiculously excited about it and are going to do our darnedest to make it the awesomest thing you read all year.
Thanks so much for your consideration!

2013.04.10 – Greg Pak to guest with Howard Chen on ACV’s “Joy Dunk Club” TONIGHT!


This is a little crazy, but if you follow me on Twitter you know I’m a big Jeremy Lin fan.
So I’ve been invited to be a guest on the Joy Dunk Club live video cast TONIGHT at 10:30 pm Eastern!
Basically it’s a Google hangout wherein the hosts and guests talk about basketball with a special emphasis on the Houston Rockets and Jeremy Lin. Tonight’s other guest is the fantastic Howard Chen from Comcast Sportsnet, whom you might recognize if you watch the Rockets games.
Many thanks to Keith Chow who hooked me up. See ya tonight!
