Logo used for the Kickstarter campaign

Kickstarter is a site that allows projects to be set up for crowd-sourced funding. In 2013, Czajkowski started a crowdfunding project through Kickstarter to self-publish the first volume of Ava's Demon. Besides a full-color book, Czajkowski offered downloads for the animated comics. The webcomic successfully raised $217,036 USD by June 2013. In 2015, another Kickstarter campaign was launched to publish the second volume of Ava's Demon, as well as to re-print the first volume. Along with donation perks, an animated chapter video would be created by Studio Yotta, known for their animated videos for internet comedy group Starbomb. The campaign was successfully funded.

Book One

3,756 backers pledged $217,036 to help bring this project to life.

The Story

Ava's Demon is an ongoing science fiction and fantasy, multimedia webcomic about a girl named Ava and the demon haunting her.

Well...ok...it's a bit more complicated than that. The demon might just be the ghost of an alien queen, Wrathia, seeking revenge on the one that destroyed her empire, a god-like figure named Titan. The story follows Ava as she makes her way across the universe, teaming up with the demon haunting her on a quest for revenge, while fighting her own inner demons along the way.

The Book

The goal of the Kickstarter is to raise 12k to publish at least 2000 copies of a 9''x 9'' hardcover, first edition book with the first 500 panels of this story for all the fans! It will be approximately 150-200 pages, 2 panels per page, in full color with broken down frames of all three chapter animations. If stretch goals are met, art and making of sections will be added to the back of the book!

Book Two

3,729 backers pledged $351,076 to help bring this project to life.

The Story

Ava's Demon is an ongoing science fiction and fantasy, multimedia webcomic about a girl named Ava and the demon haunting her.

Well...ok...it's a bit more complicated than that. The demon might just be the ghost of an alien queen, Wrathia, seeking revenge on the one that destroyed her empire, a god-like figure named Titan. The story follows Ava as she makes her way across the universe, teaming up with the demon haunting her on a quest for revenge, while fighting her own inner demons along the way.

The Book

This is the second Ava's Demon Kickstarter running to publish Book Two, and reprint Book One!

The goals of this kickstarter are to raise 75k to publish at least 2000 copies of a 9''x 9'' hardcover, first edition Book Two with the next 769 panels of this story, and to reprint Book One for anyone that missed out the first time. The goal this time around is much higher because it is more accurately based on the cost of printing and reprinting 400 page books.

Book Two will be green and Tuls Themed, approximately 400-450 pages, 2 panels per page, in full color with broken down frames of Maggie's Garden animation. If stretch goals are met, character profiles and making-of will either be put in the back of the book or will be issued separately as a PDF.

Pledges

Book One remains the same as the first kickstarter: 420 pages, art-of section in the back. It is Edition Two of the first book, updated with the newer, retouched panels and art.

All tiers $250 and above have the back cover variant "PACT MAKER", with an official seal (improved) showing your dedication to the comic!
