    ORIGINAL EVIL!

    You get the hardcover AND an original page of artwork from issues 1-7! My pages are larger than the average comic art, measuring approximately 15x20 inches, so they display nicely and capture a LOT of detail!

This will be on a first come first serve basis, so if you pledge to this I will send a PDF of the book for you to pick your page from, and the sooner you pledge the more options you'll have!
