Take a Look at the Coins for the Legendary Showdown KickStarter

The Legendary Showdown KickStarter is doing well. This is gratifying, since Girl Genius is one of the two webcomics featured in this edition. The other comic in this set, Gunnerkrigg Court, is consistently on the list of our readers’ favorite webcomics, and rightly so. It’s a wonderful work. We’re very pleased to be in the same set!

If you haven’t yet had a look at the KS page, you really should, they have some fun rewards that I’m quite looking forward to. The coins are especially lovely. I’m planning to use the Moxana one as a watch fob. Actually, that’s what I designed it for. I know it was supposed to be a challenge coin, but I have never been handed a challenge coin without wishing it had a hole in it so I could use it for…well, anything at all, really. I’m a bad collector. (Not that you’d know it to look at the piles of stuff in my house.)

I really love that first one, with the robot from Gunnerkrigg. I’ve never worked with the company that makes these, myself, (these coins are being done by Killer Robot Games, not by Studio Foglio) but I think I’ll be contacting them. I really like the look of these samples. They’re getting a lot of nice depth in the relief.

You’ll notice that the TPU one looks weird…that’s because I turned the design in kind of late. So there are samples made of all the others, but not that one…not yet. Argh. Still, I think it’ll look great. It’s the fob that all the sparks who’ve been at TPU carry so they can flash it at their colleagues at the Mad Scientist conventions and inspire comradery, envy, or bitter rivalry, depending upon the situation. The Moxana one is, of course, a souvenir from Master Payne’s Circus of Adventure.
