Greg Pak and Takeshi Miyazawa Announce ‘Kaiju Clubhouse’ as a Stretch Goal for ‘ABC Disgusting’
Greg Pak and Takeshi Miyazawa's Kickstarter campaign for ABC Disgusting has been pretty steady with providing stretch goals ever since they made their initial funding a while back, including the very tempting offer to get Pak himself to eat and drink super-gross stuff inspired by the book. Very, very tempting. Look into it.
If, however, you're not into seeing the writer of Action Comics make himself sick with a mayonnaise milkshake, there's another goal they announced today that might be a little more palatable: An illustrated chapter book about the stars of ABC Disgusting going on a hunt for giant monsters called Kaiju Clubhouse.
Pak and Miyazawa are no stranger to the idea of introducing new projects as part of existing Kickstarters --- last year's storybook based on Jonathan Coulton's The Princess Who Saved Herself was initially unlocked as part of the Code Monkey Save World campaign. Kaiju Clubhouse, however, represents Pak's first step into a new genre, as he told us over email:
It's a prose chapter book for young readers --- my first foray into this kind of writing, and I'm hugely excited about the prospect! It'll be illustrated with black and white drawings by Tak and if we hit that final $40,000 stretch goal, we'll deliver it digitally to all our ABC Digusting backers when it's done.
Tak and I have been talking about the characters and story, and while we don't want to reveal too much just yet, it stars the brother and sister from ABC Digusting as they hunt for kaiju-like monsters. Hijinks will ensue, adventure will be had, surprises will be sprung, and unexpected lessons will be learned! Tak calls it "a book about the unexpected -- for both the kids and the monsters!"
The Kickstarter campaign for ABC Disgusting ends Wednesday night.
