“FULL BLEED #1 was a hell of a book. I’m excited to see the series continue. Jump in. The water’s great.” - JOE HILL

FULL BLEED is like Rolling Stone, the old Comics Journals, and an art book had a baby. A PRINT-ONLY 200-page hardcover “magazine,” curated and edited by IDW Publishing’s Dirk Wood and Ted Adams. By merging the best in comics, fiction, non-fiction, deep dive interviews, opinion, history, think-pieces and more, FULL BLEED is a reading experience like no other, and a beautiful addition to any bookshelf. Looking through an international lens, but filtered through the unique perspective of the IDW:PDX satellite office in Portland Oregon, FULL BLEED tackles all aspects of the creative culture, and beyond — comics, music, film, tv, fine art, photography, design, politics and more. FULL BLEED seeks total diversity: diversity in content, diversity in creator and contributor, diversity in genre. Every page turned reveals a surprise. 

Here's just SOME of what to expect in the third volume of FULL BLEED and beyond: 

Monsters of Rock: An interview with Metallica’s Kirk Hammett, and Anthrax’s Scott Ian, concerning their shared history and love of all things horror and genre — By Russell Sheath, illustration by Tony Shasteen

Shipping 

We plan to charge for shipping after the Kickstarter ends via our pledge manager. The amount charged will be determined by the actual costs to ship your items to your location. 

For International Shipping: Please be forewarned that shipping costs could be substantial due to international shipping rates. We will do our best to get you the lowest, fairest shipping rate possible and not charge any more than it costs to ship your package(s). Once the product is finalized, and we know exact shipping dimensions and weight (sometime after the campaign ends), we will publish shipping prices for international orders on the Kickstarter page. 

Contributions and pledges are inclusive of any state and local sales tax, if applicable. 

Risks and challenges

In days of yore, running a magazine, one had to rely on two important sources of revenue — advertising and subscriptions. Well, FULL BLEED is 100% ad free. To realistically sustain a publication of this magnitude, reaching out directly to fans is necessary. In other words, subscriptions. In this day and age, Kickstarter provides us the opportunity to interact with prospective readers, not compromise on quality, and remain free of advertising.
