Preview: Princess Vs. Giant Bee 'Princess Who Saved Herself'
Last week, we interviewed Greg Pak and Jonathan Coulton about their new Kickstarter with artist Takeshi Miyazawa. A spin-off of sorts of their 2013 campaign for Code Monkey Save World, this one was meant to bring a children's book adaptation of Coulton's The Princess Who Saved Herself into print. If you remember how that original campaign ended with them reaching almost ten times their original goal --- or if you remember that Coulton is one of the most successful independent musicians around thanks to his extremely loyal fan-base --- it won't surprise you to learn that the campaign already soared $45,000 past its initial goal in its first week; but there's another reason that people are jumping on. The book is already done, and as the eight-page preview we've got below shows, it looks awesome.
