So why is it so important that you order this particular book? Well, I'll let Gran explain it in her own words:
This is a crucial time for the success of Octopus Pie. The sales of this book will do a lot to determine whether or not future books can be made. If you love the comic, but have never ordered OP merch before, this is a fantastic way to show your support. Plus you'll be getting an awesome signed book out of it!
Seriously, Gran is up there with Danielle Corsetto on my personal list of most talented web cartoonists, and I hope will be getting a lot more Octopus Pie. You can pre-order the book here and it comes signed with "mystery buttons." Rock.
And, if you're still in the pre-ordering mood, I'd suggest moseying on over to LutherLevy.com where Dylan Meconis is taking pre-orders for the first volume of Family Man. I've talked about Family Man before, and it's the perfect representation of one of my favorite things about webcomics. Family Man is utterly unexpected, a comic starring a Protestant theologian of Jewish descent whose studies have led him to a crisis of faith, one that remains surprisingly accessible despite dialogued peppered with jokes about Spinoza and the letters of Paul. Meconis is printing Family Man in glossy sepia, which puts her costs on the pricey side. She needs $10,000 to print the books and says that, as of this morning, she is 65% of the way toward her goal. If you like post-Reformation theology mixed with werewolves, go and give her another bump.
