Today’s Backer is for a limited edition poster from Erika Hammerschmidt, the writer, artist and creator of the webcomic Abby and Norma.
“I’m making a special Abby and Norma poster you can be proud to hang on your wall!” writes Erika. “From a distance it looks like a pretty geometric design, but get close and it’s made up of countless images from the comic, arranged neatly and symmetrically, interspersed with speech balloons just like the ones Abby and Norma use for conversation.”
Along with the poster there are a bevy of rewards for backing the campaign at every tier. Order your poster today.
Today’s Backer is for El Nuevo Ruido Shirt from the team behind Metalheart Clothing Co. – the same people behind HM Magazine. The shirt is a tribute to the now-defunct punk pioneers Refused.
These shirts are being offered exclusively through Backer and will not be available once this campaign is over. Order yours today.

What is App.net Broadcast?
App.net Broadcast makes it easy (and free) for anyone on an iPhone or Android device to publish and subscribe to real-time updates.
Remember, with Broadcast, publishers reach all their subscribers in real time, every time; and, likewise subscribers receive the updates from publishers they’ve chosen to subscribe to. App.net doesn’t decide which broadcasts you receive, you do.
The most popular Broadcast channels publish regularly — once-a-day, or at least every other day — and include an image along with a ‘read more’ link. Publishers can get even more subscribers by using our promote tools.
Today’s Backer is for a limited edition poster of one of our favorite comics from one of of our favorite artists: God’s Plan, by Pie Comics,
John McNamee, creator of @piecomic (and 80sDonDraper), writes “So a few weeks back, while in one of my more contemplative and drunken moods, I drew this comic wherein I laid out God’s plan. And since I liked it so much, I decided to celebrate in poster form!”
