Last update before the final close on the Bobby Jo and the Appalachian Alien Apocalypse #1 campaign.!

I can't thank you enough for all the support and interest in what we're doing at Bad Bug. We have some exciting things to share this year as we wrap up some limited series and begin new ones. Bobby Jo was our first debut title for this year and we're so happy with the response. 

Scott WIlke is such an understated asset of Bad Bug. A fantastic writer that has supported several of our titles, but this is one of the books that you can really tell he had fun.

Michael Mayne, the artist that put this all together, grinded out 24 pages, tons of concept art, and 4 covers on this campaign! A true work horse, entirely professional, and hilarious.  

Want to thank all the cover artists for their contributions to the campaign. So excited about who we are lining up for cover artists on Issue 2 (you're gonna love em!)

AND...I'd like to thank you all. You beautiful people. I see you there...looking good! 

Okay, enough. Here is the tarot card from Summer Dale that 500 backers unlocked! 

Close enough to unlocking stretch goal #5! Reveal!

35 Hours Left! Thought I'd drop by to let everyone see the fifth and final trading card of the first wave of the MUTANTS series. We'll see some brand new cards for Issue 2 of Bobby Jo, which we absolutely will return to Kickstarter with in May-June. 

For now, I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who continues to support Bad Bug titles. We really appreciate the engagement and we hope to increase our productivity and quality this year. 

These stretch goals are our way of saying thanks to you all, but we know there's so much more we can do in the long term to reward our returning backers. More to come on that as we continue to workshop different ideas we've pulled together. 

Also...don't forget that we're just a few backers away from unlocked the 500 backer stretch goal...and we need about 50 more comments to unlock the 100 project comments stretch goal.

Come on....LET'S GO!!!!

Here's Molly Ripper. 

Trading card unlocked! Also, crossover print promotion!

Stretch goal announcements and exclusive add-on!
8 months ago – Fri, Jan 27, 2023 at 09:46:52 PM

Hey guys! Thought I'd pop in and share some trading cards that you've unlocked so far along with a new add-on that's extremely limited (and cute).  Just search in the add-ons for physical pledges. 




5k - trading card

10k - trading card

15k - trading card

20k - trading card

25k - trading card

30k - exclusive holofoil 5x7 print (Naughty)

35k - holofoil sticker (Naughty)

40k - add 4 pages of story (Definitely Naughty)

This way, you all know what our intentions will be when we reach each milestone and there aren't any surprises! 

Each Bad Bug series will have a supplemental trading card series that is available exclusively through the campaign, so I'm proud to share with you artist Ed Bickford's MUTANT trading card series only obtainable through Bobby Jo Kickstarter campaigns. 

These will be more thought out and consistent. They will be double sided, with graphics and story information. The cool thing is that some of you will end up exclusive holofoil versions. Randomly selected. So be on the lookout for that when you receive your rewards. 

If you miss Bobby Jo 1's campaign...that's'll miss out on those specific trading cards. There will be a new set every campaign. This is our way of giving a special and highly exclusive thank you to the supporters who are there with us from the very beginning. 

These will be colored, but for now, here are some of the illustrations. 

Currently, 3 of the 5 cards have been unlocked. I will share those three with you now. 

Sloppy Joe.
Mike and little Mike.
Meemaw Hoohaw.

That's all for now, guys! Thanks for being so patient while we got this all together for announcements. 

More to come! 

- Mike

Update to the next update! Also Rabbits and Cheerleaders!
8 months ago – Mon, Jan 23, 2023 at 03:15:25 PM

Hey all! Taking a moment to share these campaigns with you all as we finalize all our stretch goal plans for Bobby Jo and reveal the cross-promotion print for those who back Death Nell #2 (launching tomorrow) 


Blackrabbit is Jeska, the kelptomaniac. Dominique, the nymphomaniac and Evangeline, the submissive. Along with the aid of her portal opening gloves, she is able to easily open "doorways" that allow her to reach into safes and walk through walls... perfect for a master thief. It pays the bills but the real reward is the pleasure she derives from thieving! The kleptomania fuels the nymphomania all while the submissive attempts to keep both in check.


When a meteor crashes in the middle of campus, the students at Pullman University didn't realize that they were being invaded. These space creatures are able to inhabit and take over the human body. So, what happens when a group of cheerleaders are caught in the middle? They become these flesh-eating cannibals, of course.

Soon, the problem isn't going to be the creatures, it's going to be the monsters that these cheerleaders become.
