LOS ANGELES, CA (February 23, 2023) – The critically acclaimed and Hugo and Saturn Award-winning series (streaming on Amazon Prime) THE EXPANSE has made headlines once again as the BOOM! DELUXE PRE-ORDER CAMPAIGN for THE EXPANSE: DRAGON TOOTH breaks Kickstarter’s week one record for comic book projects at a staggering $827,802.
THE EXPANSE: DRAGON TOOTH is the first new story since the stunning finale episode of Season 6, developed under the direct supervision and creative guidance of THE EXPANSE creator James S.A. Corey, and created by superstar writer Andy Diggle (The Losers, Green Arrow: Year One) and rising star artist Rubine (Voltron: Legendary Defender).
Pre-orders for this thrilling new comic book series began on Kickstarter last week as the latest BOOM! DELUXE PRE-ORDER CAMPAIGN, ending its first day as BOOM! Studios’ biggest Kickstarter launch day of all time, beating the record previously held by Keanu Reeves’ megahit BRZRKR.
On the runaway snowball success of THE EXPANSE: DRAGON TOOTH campaign, Filip Sablik, BOOM! Studios President of Publishing and Marketing had this to say:
“The continued, enthusiastic response from The Expanse community has blown all of us away. Our high expectations for this campaign were surpassed on day one, and to be here haring with you all that you, the fans, have helped us break yet another record is truly the best way we could’ve hoped to start off this year. We cannot wait for you all to get your hands on this incredible story.”
BOOM! Studios plans to continue to pursue this successful avenue for pre-orders, with several more unannounced BOOM! DELUXE PRE-ORDER campaigns for 2023 yet to be revealed.
THE EXPANSE: DRAGON TOOTH DELUXE PRE-ORDER CAMPAIGN will continue for 14 more days, with special surprises and hidden stretch goals to be announced all month long.
