About

Golden Age Sci-Fi Comic Book Cover Playing Cards

$1,570

116

Sci-Fi comics had their golden age in the pre-moon landing era of the 1950's their elicit covers and fast paced stories proved to be controversial. Many classic sci-fi covers were designed by famous artists of the day and even now they are striking in their beauty.

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.

  I love these golden age comic covers and I've used them before as graphics for a fingerboard deck and I have also done a similar project with horror covers. 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 Card Backs at $600 total

Add Custom Tuck Box at $700 total

Risks and challenges

I have had similar cards printed and the process went smoothly.

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
