Strange Planet’s Illustrated Dictionary and More Hit Kickstarter

Pyle, a #1 New York Times bestselling author, is renowned for his Strange Planet comics, featuring peculiar, blue, alien-like beings navigating their daily lives on a planet strikingly similar to Earth. The humor in these comics is ingeniously crafted, primarily focused on satirizing the peculiar (and sometimes pointless) social rituals that humans often find themselves entangled in. However, one of the most unique aspects of Strange Planet is its delightful approach to language. Beds are “rest slabs”, confetti is “tiny trash” and salad are “leafbuckets.” The Strange Universe of Nathan W. Pyle assembles the strip’s many adorable phrases, as well as offering a treasure trove of comics.

Pyle is Creating an Unforgettable Strange Planet Fan Experience

While the books themselves are funded, the Kickstarter is still unlocking bonus goodies. Offerings include Strange Planet Word Tiles, magnetic words and phrases extracted from the charmingly peculiar universe of Strange Planet, holographic stickers, and custom art. But the most intriguing addition is a canvas tote bag, currently awaiting its artistic identity. What sets this tote apart is that Pyle has decided to enlist the support of project backers to help design it, turning it into a collaborative work of art. It’s a testament to Pyle’s commitment to creating a memorable experience for fans. Moreover, the diversity of these packages is remarkable, catering to enthusiasts with budgets ranging from a modest $10 to a more generous $1,740 (which comes with a hand-drawn comic), ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to be part of this exciting journey.

Pyle’s innovative approach to crowdfunding, which actively involves fans in the creative process, adds an extra layer of enjoyment to the end products. The Strange Planet Kickstarter is live now.
