STRETCH GOAL #2: If we reach $30,000, we'll have an enormous ALTER EGO magazine sale on September 1, with back issues at $2, $3, and $4 each!
STRETCH GOAL #1 REACHED! We passed $20,000, so we'll add a customized 4" x 2" color nameplate to the endpaper of every ACBC copy ordered during this Kickstarter, making each one a truly limited edition!
TwoMorrows Publishing's AMERICAN COMIC BOOK CHRONICLES series is an invaluable resource for fans and comics historians, with in-depth coverage of each decade of comics history. By 2020, eight volumes, spanning from the 1940s to the 1990s, will have been published.
THE 1980s BOOK!
We've already successfully funded a new edition of the 1980s volume, which will be published in February 2020! But you can keep pledging for the 1980s volume, to reserve your copy and get great discounts on other volumes!
THE 1950s BOOK!
Now help us continue this successful campaign, to fund a second printing of Bill Schelly's 1950s volume, which will be sold out before this campaign ends! Pledge to fund a new and improved 1950s edition now, and we won't need another Kickstarter later—plus, you'll be helping to keep the entire series in print!
With enough backers, this new and improved 1950s edition will be published in March 2020 (just prior to the release of the upcoming 1945-49 volume). It will have text corrections and even better binding—all the more reason to buy it, even if you already own the first printing!
GET THE WHOLE SET!
Pledging a little more gets your choice of additional ACBC volumes from the 1960s, '70s, or '90s at a nice discount. (After you pledge, send us a COMMENT letting us know your choices.)
And by popular demand, we've reactivated the ability to get the full set in print or digital form, including the new 1940-44 volume, and next year's 1945-49 volume!
These other books by ACBC authors Keith Dallas and John Wells are available at huge discounts when you pledge at least $40 to this Kickstarter!
Risks and challenges
DON'T LET ANY VOLUMES REMAIN OUT OF PRINT! These full-color hardcovers are very expensive to print and ship, but with commitments from customers like you through Kickstarter, a boutique publisher like TwoMorrows can risk new editions. Help us make it happen!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
