Learn About Our Project:

WHAT IS ALBERT THE ALIEN? 
ALBERT THE ALIEN is a sci-fi adventure series about the first foreign exchange student from another planet. The idea is to take things that we see in our everyday life and turn them into weird and wacky adventures. 

Think Steven Universe meets Phineus and Ferb. Or a really good sci-fi Pixar movie.

Albert started off as a multi-award nominated web comic series, updating every Wednesday and Friday at www.AlbertTheAlien.com, as well as Tuesdays on Mark Waid's Thrillbent website

This book will be a 152 page full color graphic novel, with stories by Trevor Mueller and art by Gabo!

THE BOOK IS ALMOST DONE. We're 90% of the way there. The art will be finished by May of this year. We've gotten the two previous volumes of ALBERT THE ALIEN out on time, and we're on pace to do it again this year!

With your help, Gabo and I can afford to pay for the printing of the book and get it in reader's hands. First yours, and then tomorrow...the WORLD'S!

WHAT HAPPENS IN VOLUME 3?
ALBERT THE ALIEN is the first foreign exchange student from another planet...and he's in big trouble! 

After having been on Earth for several months, Albert is still causing havoc in the most hilarious and entertaining ways. A trip to the city space program turns into an adventure when Albert launches himself into space. A sleepover turns into a nightmare when he transports his friends into an online video game. And his first Halloween has Albert turning trick or treaters into the monsters they dressed up as.

But secrets also abound in Albert's world. His home stay family may not have told him the truth about first contact with aliens. And their family secrets may hold the key to the mysterious alien door in the basement of the school! 

STRETCH GOALS:
Making comics is a team effort, and we want to reward the most powerful part of our team: YOU! When we bust past these stretch goal milestones, that lets us offer more rewards to thank you! 

Check out some of the exciting rewards all backers could benefit from if we hit these milestones!

STRETCH GOAL 1: $8,000
Everyone loves more story, and we want to give it to you. We have over 30 pages of bonus stories finished and ready to be included in this collection from guest artists like Kevin Harrell, Kasey Williams, Rose McClain, Jacob Halton, Ashley Erickson, Spitfire, and more! This will be available to anyone who orders a physical or digital copy of the book. 

STRETCH GOAL 2: $10,000
Reading sound like too much work for you? Let us do the reading for you (and in those fancy voices like Mom used to do)! At this level, we'll turn CHAPTER 1 into an audio or video file and we'll read it to you, performing the characters. We'll also partner with special guest actors from CHANNEL AWESOME! This will be available to all reward tiers. 

STRETCH GOAL 3: $12,000
Want to know how we made this book? Series creators Trevor and Gabo will make an audio commentary of VOLUME 3 (in MP3 format), available to all reward tiers. We'll do a page-by-page deconstruction of the story, the art, and provide you with process, insights, and in-jokes! This will be made available to all reward tiers. 


STRETCH GOAL 4: $15,000

Wow, you really like having stories read to you! Well, we love reading to you, too (and in those fancy voices like Mom used to do)! At this level, we'll turn VOLUMES 1-3 into an audio or video file and we'll read it to you, performing the characters. We'll also partner with special guest actors from CHANNEL AWESOME! This will be available to all reward tiers.

ADD ONS: WANT TO ADD MORE ITEMS TO YOUR PLEDGE?

Add on's will be made available in the survey, after the Kickstarter has successfully funded. You'll be able to to add things like more copies of books, multiple volumes, digital editions, etc. Basically, anything that isn't a limited quantity will be made available. 

We will be expanding the add on's throughout the campaign, so make sure you check back often.
