Every year in July for San Diego Comic Con, I debut a brand new item, usually an art book of some kind. This year, with the first issue of Dead@17’s final chapter arriving in August, I wanted to do something special for the series’ sendoff. To that end, I will be offering a couple of advance, limited edition exclusive cover versions of Dead@17: The Blasphemy Throne #1, with bonus content that won’t be in the regular version. While Image Comics will be publishing the actual series, I will be funding these exclusive editions myself.
So how does this work? Simply select the level you want to place your order. There are options for prints and original art as well. The posted goal does not have to be fully reached in order to make this exclusive edition a reality – these exclusive editions will be published even if the goal is not fully reached. I’m just trying a different method of taking orders while at the same time hoping to secure some extra funding to help keep me afloat as I devote the next few months to finishing the series.
However, if the goal is reached, I will produce a 3rd exclusive cover edition that every $20 and up supporter will receive for free!
What will the covers look like? Well, they are not complete yet, but I can tell you a little about them. The first cover is going to be a recreation of the very first issue of Dead@17 from 2003, featuring Nara in her new look for this series. The second cover is going to be an updated recreation of the Dead@17: Rough Cut #1 Zombie Beach Party Cover from 2004. This version is exclusive to this campaign and will NOT be sold at Comic Con.
The 3rd, goal-reaching bonus cover will remain a mystery for now :)
The books will ship late July/early August, ideally before the regular edition is released to stores in mid-August (however, I cannot guarantee all books will arrive before then). If you are attending Comic Con, you may pick up your books at the show.
THIS CAMPAIGN WILL END TUESDAY, JULY 1 at 12 AM PST.
