On October 8, 2012, Ben Acker and Ben Blacker launched a Kickstarter campaign[1] to fund the creation of a Thrilling Adventure Hour original graphic novel with the initial goal of raising $55,000.[2] Over the course of the next 30 days, the show's supporters not only fully funded the graphic novel but contributed enough to reach several stretch goals.

In the end, the campaign received 2,534 backers and raised a total of $192,873. At the time it concluded, it was the fifth most-funded comics campaign in Kickstarter history and the highest-funded campaign for the creation of a first volume of a graphic novel.
