The Bawdy Tales of Lazlo Cale

Created by Andrew Maxwell

The Bawdy Tales of Lazlo Cale is a rollicking 48 page, mature readers sci-fi romp, created by Andrew Maxwell and Goran Gligović. If you're a fan of films like Ocean's 11 or The Thomas Crown Affair, and sci-fi in the vein of The Fifth Element, or Sex Criminals, then you'll love Lazlo.

Hey Gang,

We hope you enjoyed reading the adventures of Lazlo as much as we enjoyed making them. It was a blast to create. If you liked Lazlo, I wanted to check in and inform you of another one of our titles, Rum Row, which is launching today.  

Some of you may be already familiar with the comic, and I know there were quite of few of you that added it on to your Lazlo order. But for those new comers, Rum Row is a prohibition themed, dieselpunk crime adventure. When prohibition hits, rum runners and patrons alike take to the sky in giant dirigible speakeasies above New York, to avoid dry laws.  

We are launching issue #3 today, but issues #1-2, and a whole host of other rewards are available for pre-order as well

Thanks again for the consideration, and have a great week!

Best,

Andrew

That's a Wrap!

The last round of packages went out this morning. If you don’t receive a package in the next two weeks, please message me. I’ll get on it ASAP.

I've already seen a few of you posting about receiving your packages, and we love that! Definitely tag us if you plan on doing so. You can find us on Twitter:

Myself- @IhateMaxwell

*Adam Pruett was a huge part of making this book, but isn't a big social media guy. So I will pass on your support. 

Making indie comics is truly a passion project, so getting feedback from all of you is worth more than gold. Putting together these packages, I saw quite a few return backers, which is the best thing I could hope for. It means we're doing something right. Plus I saw a ton of new names!

So a big thank you from the bottom of all our hearts. You're the best! We hope you enjoy the books, and fingers crossed come along for future chapters. 

Sincerely,

Andrew

It has begun!

Hey Gang, 

Checking in here, as we get closer to reaching the finish line. I have dropped off two giant loads at the post office in the past couple days, and mailed off approximately 70% of the packages! Another load should hopefully do it. Fingers crossed, I think everyone should get their books by the the end of the month, and we'll be right in line with our deadline. 

One thing I wanted to mention to avoid any confusion. I used my buddy's pre-paid label maker to save myself time on packaging, and cut down on those horrendous holiday lines at the post office. It will read from "Cat Crib", his personal business, instead of from myself. So you will see this label...

Heh so to clarify, you are getting comics. Not cat products. Maybe we can have a feline themed crossover event in the future. 

Oh and I know it was stated in the Kickstarter campaign, but I wanted to say it one last time just in case. This book is definitely for adults. Rum Row and Aldous Spark were more in the PG/PG-13 range, and Lazlo is most definitely not. Zany sci-fi galore, just not for the kids this time around. 

Lastly, I also wanted to mention Lazlo made it in Pipedream Comic's Top 20 of 2018 for Small Press and Indie Comics. If you're unfamiliar with Pipedream, they're fantastic site that covers the best comics coming out in the indie/small press scene. I've often found some great books on there myself, like Alex Automatica and Gateway City for example. So check it out.

I think that's everything! Keep an eye on your mailbox, because packages should be arriving soon. If you have any questions, or something is damaged, please direct message me immediately. I will make sure to handle it immediately. 

If you have a chance to give it a read, myself and the team would love to hear what you think! Have a great weekend. 

Best,

Andrew

Lazlo has landed!

Hey Gang,

I officially have the books in hand, and they look beautiful! See for yourself - 

We decided to make the Lazlo CQ ad a flip around back cover, and it turned out great. We're really happy how all the covers turned out! Here's a few interior shots: 

So I already have the other print rewards and shipping materials. I just need to print out the labels and start packaging. As long as everything continues to move along smoothly, we should have all the books out by the end of December as originally planned. But if anything changes, I'll make sure to let all of you know. 

Thanks again for backing our little book, it means the world to us! We really hope you enjoy it. 

Best,

Andrew 

Almost!

Hey Gang,

I just wanted to check in, hope all is well. I got confirmation that the books have officially come into port. So I will send another update, once I actually have the books in hand. Then it's off to the races for getting these shipped off!

Talk to you soon,

Andrew
