"It has been said that those the Gods wish to destroy, they make famous young. This book proves that Steve's life mission is to prove them wrong." ~ Clive Barker
Why Steve Johnson's RUBBERHEAD?
- Mike Correll
John Landis said it best, "I've known Steve for a long time now, so when he asked me to read Volume I of this book and write a forward, I did not expect such a wild, Time-traveling, unorthodox account of the very large ups an downs of Steve's life and career. He writes as if Hunter Thompson was a make-up man about to go bungee jumping with Indiana Jones." Landis does not exaggerate; RUBBERHEAD is at once as wildly entertaining as it is thought provoking and hilariously funny!
The RUBBERHEAD Volume I Kickstarter, featuring the first in a five-volume series of high end coffee table books, chronicling the memoirs, art and unedited antics of Steve Johnson was a huge success, with over 140% funding! Fans and newcomers alike were astounded by both the high quality of the Softcover and Hardcover editions including 260 pages, and over 400 high quality, full color photos, as well as the content! Steve's story is a roller-coaster ride from the heights of Hollywood, to the depths of self-imposed exile.
Steve Johnson is back in RUBBERHEAD Volume II, and with the assistance of Backers, his story will continue!!!
RUBBERHEAD Volume II Delivers!
Prolific would be an understatement concerning Steve Johnson's work in the film industry, and it would be impossible to include everything in a single book. Steve's expertise on such films as The Abyss, Species, Big Trouble in Little China, Ghostbusters, Spiderman II, The Cat in the Hat, Fright Night, and such Cult Classics as Clive Barker's Lord of Illusions, and David Cronenberg's Videodrome, to name a few, necessitate a lengthy series. RUBBERHEAD is back with Volume II, the second in a series of five books chronicling more than three decades in the sordid world of Hollywood special FX, as told by Steve himself!
Having read RUBBERHEAD Volume I, I was convinced Steve had played all of his literary cards, but I have come to discover that he was only scratching the surface! In addition to his unorthodox prose Volume II inlcudes a 20 page graphic novel - join us in the next stage of Steve's insanity!
