KING JAMES MONEEGO original inked pages as rewards!

Almost halfway there.  These are 7 one of a kind 10x15 inked pages with the blue line underdrawing now available for $100-$150.  There are two smaller drawings available as well.

Unlike the book and poster which will ship in March, these pieces of original comic art from the book are available to ship in early December.  These are some of my favorite non-spoiler pages. To view the work on the project page scroll down on the left.  The red title identifies the page listed in rewards.  Thank you for all the great support. Onto the second half!

      To all the great backers of King James Moneego:

      Ka-Blam has sent me the proof of the book and the printing looks terrific! A couple of changes and now they're printing YOUR BOOKS AND POSTERS! I should receive them mid-February. At that time I'll contact you to see if you would like them signed and where you would like them sent.

      I've put a rush order in to send books to the five jurors of the Glyph Awards that judge black themed comics.

      "The Committee defines black-themed work as any comic with any combination of the following: a black protagonist(s), or at least a black character(s) pivotal to the direction of the story; a setting(s) or a theme(s) that explores the black experience within the United States and/or abroad, past, present, and/or future; and/or a comic of any kind written and/or illustrated by a black creator(s)."

      Hopefully Moneego will merit a nomination. Fingers crossed. I'll keep you posted.
      Thank You again.-John Cote
