Nick Green (Decibel Magzine)  
Roger Langridge (Popeye/ The Muppet Show/ Fred the Clown/ Snarked!)
Tim Shagrat (Acid Witch)
Ben Marra (Lincoln Washington: Free Man!/Henry & Glenn Forever and Ever)
Vasilis Lolos (The Pirates of Coney Island/Spider-Man Family)

Mark Rudolph (Dagon/ Metal Hammer/ Decibel/ Tombs of the Blind Date)

Specifics:
As of June 2012, I have about 85% of the content from contributors and have found a printer that can do exactly what I'm looking for. What I'm looking for here is funding to print the book. I have done print-on-demand in the past, but I want this book to look as great as it possibly can, so Satan is Alive will be done offset, with perfect binding.
The money raised here will go toward: paying the printer, shipping supplies/cost, and compensating contributors. This is a passion project, so I'm not making a payday here, just trying to get the best quality book printed as soon as possible. Thanks so much for your support!
