Picturebox is using out a unique patronage-based publishing model for two upcoming graphic novels.

Powr Mastrs 3 and If ‘n Oof will only be printed if enough money is raised ahead of time by pre-orders for the comics. When someone does pre-order either of the books, their name will be listed inside the book, along with their level of support. Picturebox is offering four different price tiers that come with an increasing number of bonuses, such as limited edition prints, as the dollar amount rises. Only 400 people per book are needed to get them published.
