Jackie Ormes Doc


Thanks to going over our goal, we were able to produce this short bonus documentary about Jackie Ormes, a pioneering African American female cartoonist from the early days of comics. Learn some more about this awesome woman.

And, if you haven't received your reward from the campaign, let us know. Everything has shipped out, so if you don't have it yet, we'll need to resend it. Thanks again for your support, hope you enjoy this extra bonus.

Update on Jackie Ormes documentary


One other update for today!

Some of you have asked about the Jackie Ormes mini-documentary, which you may notice is not on the DVD. Due to some issues with the DVD manufacturing, we will be releasing the Jackie Ormes documentary separately, early next year. We appreciate your understanding.

Look for another update on that front shortly!
