About

Golden Age Horror Comic Book Cover Playing Cards

$1,168

79

Horror comics had their golden age in the pre-censorship era of the 1940's their elicit covers and fast paced stories proved to be too controversial and they were ultimately banned. Many classic horror covers were designed by famous artists of the day and even now they are striking in their beauty.

The Box Is Done
The Box Is Done

  Working with direct scans of the original covers I need the artist to clean up the images removing bends in the pages and any pen marks. The original images will not be changed and the colors will all remain the same. I also need to have a custom tuck box designed.

Before and After Touch Up
Before and After Touch Up

 I love these horror comic covers and I've used them before as graphics for a fingerboard deck. I have gathered over 50 images to use for the decks and I have the funds to pay an artist to do some work but I need money for the first printing and for additional artwork.

Have:

$300 for artist (one I've used before)

Need:

$500 for printing cards

Stretch Goals:

Add Custom Tuck Box at $600 total

Add Custom Brick Boxes at $700 total

Risks and challenges

I have not had playing cards printed before but I have completed similar projects.

I own a company that sells miniature skateboards called 4 Corner Fingerboards and we have sent orders to thousands of happy customers since 2010.

I guarantee that after this project funds all the backers will receive their rewards.

Thanks,
Bobby Alexander
