Ursula Vernon is the author of Digger (though you may know her as T. Kingfisher as well!) Ursula has won a myraid of awards for her writing, including the Ursa Major Award, Nebula Award, and the WSFA Small Press Award. Digger won her a Hugo Award, the Web Cartoonist’s Choice Award, and she was honored with the Mythopoeic Fantasy Award for Adult Literature as well.
Underthing Press and Grim Oak Press have been working with Ursula to ensure this release of Digger meets her standards, and we’re happy to say she has been an integral part of the development process for our offerings.
Digger is one of the biggest reasons Underthing Press exists. Once Patrick Rothfuss discovered that one of his favorite graphic novels was out of print, he endeavored to find a way to bring it back to life. Thus, Underthing Press was born.
Digger is a notable work for a number of reasons. The reader is taken on a journey they could never see coming, and it’s expertly told in the webcomic format that was taking off in the early 2010’s. Digger is not just a great read; it’s a time capsule of where the artform was at.
Kickstarter’s platform allows Underthing and Grim Oak to pursue an ambitious project like Digger while having a clear method of communication with minimized risks. By using Kickstarter, they can get a sure footing underneath themselves for future projects (like The Boy Who Loved The Moon) and provide the best possible customer service for backers.
As of June 21st, this project has raised $350,000 of their $20,000 goal. This project has 1 day left to raise as much as it can. For a pledge of $15, you will get one e-Book. For a pledge of $45, you will get one softcover book.
