Fletcher Hanks' comics are weirder than weird, and he was doing them in the 1940s, way before the underground cartoonists of the '60s made the mark with their visceral comics.

This special 3D trading card pack of Hanks' Stardust and Fantoma, has conversions by Christian LeBlanc, the 3D whizkid who has worked on everything from Mike Allred's Madman to Star Wars. Christian and I did the sold-out Madman Comin' Atcha 3D trading cards over two years ago, and we're psyched to get back together for this limited edition.

For the Fletcher Hanks set, Christian will be giving it a retro 3D conversion, where elements are cut out to resemble a classic diorama. Each pack has 9 cards of Hanks' work in 3D and printed on traditional chip back stock. Packs also come with a set of card-sized 3D specs. These cards come in a clear plastic sleeve, unless you order the higher levels, that feature a foldable cardboard sleeve box.

I'm also offering limited metal cards of both Fantomah and Stardust! Get these in the boxed level, where you get all nine cards and both metal cards in a folding "sleeve" box.

We also owe a huge thanks to our friend Paul Karasik, who uncovered Hanks' work and brought it out to the rest of the world through his reprint editions with Fantagraphics. Paul has been kind enough to let us work from some of his restorations.

Risks and challenges

Luckily, this set is going to be very straightforward: Christian has already turned around a few samples and will have the whole set converted in time for the end of the campaign.

This is also a relaunch: we decided to slim down the cards from the last Kickstarter, which gives us a lower goal and lower price per level.
