Final Update For Volume 2 Backers

When we launched our first Kickstarter campaign for P. Craig Russell's Guide to Graphic Storytelling Volume 1, we couldn't have imagined that the project would grow to encompass five installments. But here we are—three years and hundreds of backers later—thanks to our first valued backers' willingness to take a chance on us!

We are currently seeking funding for what will be the fifth and final volume of the series, which will feature Craig''s expert analysis of art by other comic-book greats—including Jack Kirby, Hal Foster, Al Willamson, Alex Toth, Will Eisner, Barry Windsor-Smith, Bernie Wrightson, Carl Barks, Bill Watterson, Jim Steranko, Robert Crumb and more.

In addition to region-free DVDs and DRM-free digital downloads, rewards include signed fine art prints (including "Donner" and "Froh" as pictured above), credits on the project . . . and a rare chance to get an original art commission directly from P. Craig Russell—made just for you! (The "Elric" piece pictured above was just created by Craig for our first art backer of the current campaign).
