Last stretch goal met! It's the final 48 hours!
10 months ago – Thu, Jul 23, 2020 at 04:00:37 PM

Hey everyone!

Sorry we haven't updated since the "pre-big-stretch goal" days... we hoped we'd make it by closing time, but we made it three days ahead of that! So yep -- everyone's getting a really slick, perfect bound 9x6" landscape artbook with brand new pieces by 8 amazing guest artists! Woot!

So what's next? A tall martini. Not for all of you -- for us when all this is over. This kind of campaign is exhausting! We thought about putting another carrot on a stick for the final push, but frankly... we're doing a lot thanks to all of you! The sketchbook, the coin, the soundtrack, now the art book... we're excited beyond words to deliver all of that alone. Who knows, we may rope in a couple more fantastic guest artists we've been chatting with, but those'll be a nice surprise if/when they happen.

So to summarize, here's what everyone is getting FREE on top of your regular (digital and physical) pledge rewards: 

  • Upgraded paperweight to 140gsm
  • embossed, foil-stamped logo
  • 6x9" ashcan sketchbook (with Peach Momoko's cover art on the cover)
  • 2" metal collectible coin featuring Peach's art
  • Original BGM Soundtrack
  • Perfect-bound 9x6" landscape artbook with awesome guest artists

That's, like $50 worth of bonus stuff for FREE! And all of those extras are limited to just this campaign, so factor in that collectability and you're coming out of this investment pretty far ahead...

As a side note, Magnetic Press has a 'virtual booth' in this week's virtual COMIC-CON@HOME -- check out the show's floor map to see what cool stuff is being offered, or just go to Magnetic's CC@HOME landing page for all the good stuff straight from the tap!

THANKS AGAIN, EVERYONE! KEEP SPREADING THE WORD!

Hey everyone!

Well our revealing-one-artist-a-day plan sorta went out the window when we agreed to let Bleeding Cool have the scoop on the full line up, announced on their site today!

The full list (as of today) includes:

  • Bengal
  • Nathan Fox
  • Oliver Vatine
  • Fane
  • Miki Montllo
  • Ashley A. Woods
  • Tony Sandoval
  • Ben Caldwell
The full list, as revealed on Bleeding Cool today!

I say "as of today" as there are still a few others that we've been talking to, and who knows... we may still be able to get them on board...

But don't worry, we're not gonna add another stretch goal! Getting this one at $37k would be fantastic as it is!

So share the word with your friends, family, coworkers, dog walkers, dental hygienist, whoever! Help us make this cool thing!

A legend steps to the stage...

Hi, everyone!

Today's guest artist reveal is a big one -- the legendary OLIVIER VATINE has joined the project!

While he may be a bit more legendary in Europe for his massive body of influential sci-fi comics, American audiences should recognize him for his work on the seminal STAR WARS: HEIR TO THE EMPIRE and last year's NIOURK (as well as Magnetic's INFINITY 8 series). He also co-founded the amazing Comix Buro artist collective fostering more amazing artists than you can shake a stick at. This guy is the King. And he's on board this art book if we hit the goal!

The future may also be surreal

Hello everyone!

Back with a quick update to reveal the next guest artist in the Future Paris Art Book stretch goal as promised: five-time Eisner Award nominee TONY SANDOVAL! 

It's no secret how much we love Tony's art and his horrible-adorable blend of surreal with the cute. If you're not familiar with his work, we strongly recommend picking up DOOMBOY, RENDEZ-VOUS IN PHOENIX, or WATERSNAKES (all available from the Magnetic Press webstore). We can't wait to see what he pictures the next century to hold...!

See you tomorrow for the next exciting guest artist announcement!

Miki Montllo revealed!

Hey everyone!

A couple quick bits of excitement:

MIKI MONTLLO revealed as part of the art book stretch goal! 

If you're familiar with his work (most likely through Magnetic Press's awesome two-part graphic novel series WARSHIP JOLLY ROGER), then you know this man can draw! His stuff is always fantastic, and we can't wait to see the snapshot of the future he brings to the table.

Just a few faces from WARSHIP JOLLY ROGER

New interview video with Zep!

We also just posted this short spotlight video on Zep on our Youtube channel -- check it out!

Spread the word and we'll see you tomorrow for the next reveal!
