There is a new SnarfQuest kickstarter book going on now....I am working with the company that is doing it, we are friends, so I am backing this 100% The info about this kickstarter campaign is below, but first I have some info for the people that backed this project. Since this new kickstarter is remastering the old Snarfquest Graphic novel and adding the color strips published in Dragon Magazine and an older color strip, I want you guys to get a chance at getting this book instead of the older version that I have been selling at conventions and on my website. So everyone that ordered the "add on" from this (my) SnarfQuest 64 page Graphic novel,Kickstarterc campaign---which included (as an add-on) the complete graphic novel and the new 64 page color graphic novel in one book---you will get this NEW REMASTERED original graphic novel with the color strips and also the NEW 64 page color version. I felt there is no need to reprint the old graphic novel with some mistakes and my bad lettering but instead give you this new remastered version for the "add on" that was here in this campaign. God, I hope you understand what I am trying to say.....I am trying to make it better for YOU GUYS that got the old version graphic novel add on from this kickstarter.....understand?? :)
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/imagined/snarfquest-30th-anniversary-remastered-graphic-nov If you have been a fan of SnarfQuest, you know that several versions of it have been published before. However, none of them have been complete. In addition, most of the original pages are gone due to either being lost or sold to collectors. So, the only surviving files are old, having been scanned in nearly two decades ago. What we have done here at Imagined Interprises is to take these files and digitally remaster them. We have spent the past nine months working on this project, and we couldn’t be happier with what we’ve accomplished. One of Larry's requirements was that he wanted us to remove all of his hand-written text and replace it digitally. You can see in this example how we have tried to ensure that our replacement text closely matches Larry’s original. We would like to thank our friends at BlamBot.com for their wonderful fonts! Another stipulation was to do an editing pass on everything, as this project has never been professionally edited. All of this put a lot of pressure on us. I mean, this is a friggin’ fantasy icon for cryin’ out loud! How much do we fix? How much do we leave intact? How much do we edit? All of these questions weighed heavily on the shoulders of each of us working on this project. In the end, we are proud of what we now present to the world. Yes, for the first time in print, the entire original SnarfQuest story. This is everything that originally appeared in Dragon Magazine, all in one volume. And not just the black and white stories, but both of the color stories that were done after the main story was finished. As of now, we have taken those color stories and cleaned them up to be printed in gray scale. However, if we reach our stretch goals for them, they will be printed in full color. The book is all 207 pages of the Black and White that appeared in Dragon Magazine, plus the 10 page Werewolf story, the 5 page Birds & Bats story, and several stand-alone pieces of SnarfQuest artwork that Larry has done for this series over the years for a total of right at 230 pages. This will include the original cover artwork inside the book, if we reach the goal of having Larry do a brand new cover. SnarfQuest 30th Anniversary Remastered Graphic Novel Larry Elmore's original SnarfQuest story for the first time in one complete graphic novel, digitally remastered with exclusive swag. 6

I want to thank everyone for making this Kickstarter campaign a successful one. I was very exxcited to see that we greatly surpassed our goal. We set our goal at $16,000 and knew we actually had to make more than that to be able to complete our goals. I had faith in you guys and we did it.
Again, I want to thank everyone for all their help!!!

If you have a change of address before this product ships, please send your new home address to email@example.com (You will get an email back letting you know we received it.)
The miniatures will ship first; you will get them a few months before the SnarfQuest: New Adventures book is printed--- most likely in April or May. (I'll let you know if anything changes.) If you move in between the shipping of the minis and the book, just let us know you have gotten your minis when filling out the change of address.
If I can get the Snarf book done early, I will. Believe me, I can't wait to get this thing finished and move on to the big Elmore Black & White art book due out next holiday season!
