    + Ryan's Copy of Script + Thumbnails!

    We could call this "Mega Process Junkie Award": Because Ryan has only worked digitally for a while now we don't really have any original art to offer you, but we DO have his physical copy of the scripts where he THUMBNAILS out every issue by hand. So this is literally a one-of-a-kind item!

    AND you get this along with the 500pp digital comics, hardcover, prints, process ebook, et cetera, et cetera. The Whole Magilla (Gorilla).
