Code Monkey Save World Now Brings Us A Princess Who Saves Herself

kickstarterA Kickstarter for a new graphic novel based on the songs of Jonathan Coulton, written by Greg Pak and drawn by Takeshi Miyazawa has done rather well for itself so far.

Raising $215,977 from its target of $39,000 from 5308 backers with 8 days to go, it has just delivered another surprise in the form of a stretch goal. And it’s a doozy.

Already Code Monkey Save World has jumped from a 60 page book to 96 pages, a new album of acoustic versions of the songs that inspired the book to be recorded and handed digitally to backers, a two page story included from Fred Van Lente and Ryan Dunlavey and… stickers, posters and stickers!

And now? If the Kickstarter reaches a cool quarter of a million, the creative team will create a new children’s book based around the Coulton song ‘The Princess Who Saved Herself’, which backers will now receive digitally.

“The Princess Who Saved Herself” tells the story of a tough, tomboy princess who encounters a scary dragon and creepy witch — and recruits them to play in her rock band. It’s a beautiful, fun, funny song, and with your help, it’s going to be a great kids’ book. If we make the stretch goal, the whole “Code Monkey Save World” creative team will shift over to work on the children’s book once the graphic novel is completed.

Here’s how it goes;
