Our pal Clifford Meth is prepping a Kickstarter to re-present great comic artist Dave Cockrum's classic The Futurians. It's a great project, a must-get for any fan of classic comics art, and we here at the Bulletin can't recommend it highly enough. Here's the information in Cliff's own words:
$1100 in pre-orders. Not bad for a 1st day Facebook crowd funding. DON'T MISS OUT. Pre-orders entitle you to first dibs on original art & other perks BEFORE we even start the Kickstarter! Just wait until you see the remarqued bookplates from Bob Wiacek! And the pin-ups from Bill Sienkiewicz. And…
Before Aardwolf Publishing announces the Futurians Kickstarter (featuring Neal Adams, Mark McKenna, Walter Simonson, Bob Wiacek, Bill Sienkiewicz, Mark Wheatley, Joe St.Pierre, Neil Gaiman and the Kubert brothers) we’re making a special offer to Dave Cockrum’s fans. You can reserve the Ltd. Edition FUTURIANS RETURN hardcopy graphic novel (signed and numbered) plus the Futurians Return digital book, which features even more art, for $25. By pre-ordering, you’ll get the lowest numbered copies. Those who place advanced orders will have an earlier opportunity to buy the original art and other perks prior to these items being offered via our Kickstarter. We will even hold the book for just $10 and bill you when it’s complete. Just PayPal your reserve money to firstname.lastname@example.org and note “Futurians Reserve” in the message. Thank you for your interest in Dave Cockrum’s final project.
