James O'Barr Variant Cover/Print Combo

Posted by Shane Matthew Murphy (Creator)

Happy Tuesday!

I'm sorry for the late update.  It has been a busy but immensely satisfying day!  Today's update is something of a dream come true for me.  The Crow was the first comic book I ever purchased.  It inspired me to draw then and it continues to inspire me today.  James O'Barr is my favorite artist and the fact that he has agreed to be involved with a project that means so much to me is simply beyond words.

Today's Update:

JAMES O'BARR VARIANT COVER/PRINT COMBO - James O'Barr artist and creator of The Crow (a graphic novel which has sold more than 750,000 copies worldwide) will create a variant cover for BIRDLAND #1 as well as a SIGNED and numbered 11"x17" print of the variant cover! Includes bookmark, the digital copy, your choice of print, plus a special URL for access to exclusive online content related to BIRDLAND #2 conceptual art and updates.

All backers $60 and above will now automatically receive the variant cover version of the book along with the rest of their current rewards while backers of the $300 and $750 tiers will also include the SIGNED variant cover 11"x17" print.

The VARIANT COVER and unsigned VARIANT COVER 11"x17" PRINT will also be available as an "Add On" to any existing pledges over $10.  Simply add the Add-On amount to your pledge and you will receive the book/print with the rest of your items!

Also, in addition to the colored "Birds of Birdland" bookmark set, all backers over $10 will also receive the unsigned JAMES O'BARR VARIANT COVER 11"x17" PRINT once the $7000 BIRDS IN TECHNICOLOR stretch goal is met!

Thank you all again for your show of support!  This has probably been the coolest day of my life.  I'm gonna go pinch myself.  Goodnight, everyone!
