DELUXE PRE-ORDER CAMPAIGN, ending its first day with a record-breaking total of $342,214, and becoming BOOM! Studios’ biggest Kickstarter launch day of all time, a record previously held by Keanu Reeves’ megahit BRZRKR.
BRZRKR’s day one success led to it becoming the biggest comic book Kickstarter campaign of all time in 2021. BOOM! Studios President of Publishing and Marketing, Filip Sablik has similar hopes for THE EXPANSE: DRAGON TOOTH.
“Beginning with BRZRKR, BOOM! Studios has positioned itself as the premiere publisher for exciting comic book projects on Kickstarter,” said Sablik. “With each BOOM! DELUXE PRE-ORDER CAMPAIGN we challenge ourselves to bring new fans into the medium of comic book storytelling and give them a premium experience. I cannot overstate how excited all of us at BOOM! Studios are that the vast, immersive galaxy of The Expanse has earned its place amongst the Kickstarter stars.”
With nearly four additional weeks left in the pre-order campaign, THE EXPANSE: DRAGON TOOTH DELUXE PRE-ORDER campaign’s record breaking launch has already made the series BOOM! Studios third biggest campaign of all time behind BRZRKR and Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.

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.
