Alan Moore joins Occupy Comics
With just 3 days left on our funding campaign, ALAN MOORE (Watchmen, V For Vendetta, Batman: The Killing Joke, From Hell, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen) has joined the Occupy Comics team. He'll be contributing a longform prose piece with spot illustrations that touches on the principles of the Occupy movement.
So now both creators of V For Vendetta & its signature Guy Fawkes mask (writer Alan Moore and artist David Lloyd) are on Team Occupy Comics. Their work was an inspiration to many of the protesters out in the streets, and now they are both collaborating on a project inspired by those protesters. Pretty cool.

Thank you all for supporting this project and getting it off the ground.
We've past our funding minimum, but we still hope to expand the scope of the contributions and the scale of donations to support the protests.
As outlined in last week's Comics Alliance interview, we may limit prints of the book solely to Kickstarter pledgers plus a limited pre-order period (mostly for international audiences who can't use Kickstarter)--that way we can curtail hard costs that would take away from the amount of money donated. So these last few days of the Kickstarter campaign are a really important time to spread the word as much as possible.
So please help us spread the word in the final days of this campaign and thank you all again so much for your support getting us here.
