The prophecy comes to pass!
I really dig this page…at first glance it doesn’t look like much is going on, but appearances can be deceiving. There are two HUGELY significant moments – one subtle and the other not so much – that do NOT bode well for the Daredevils. And, it also features some dang good-lookin’ art by Smilton.
**We interrupt your regularly scheduled programming to bring you this very special announcement**
WE ARE LAUNCHING A KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN ON TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 23RD –NEXT WEEK– TO FUND A PRINT EDITION OF DEEP DIVE DAREDEVILS!!
We’re using Kickstarter to help us fund a professional offset print run – the same high-quality printing process used by the major publishers – of DEEP DIVE DAREDEVILS No. 1, a 48-page full-color comic book that collects the Daredevils’ first adventure, Secret of the Beaufort Sea!
In your hands, the comic will feel like an unearthed gem from Golden Age of comics with period accurate design and specialized aging effects applied to the art work. The cover, a brand-new illustration by Danilo Guida that is exclusive to the print edition, will feature halftone color, faded ink and faux creases. The interior pages will be printed on lightweight, uncoated paper (the next best thing to newsprint, without the smudging and massive ink bleed), and will have an effect applied that gives the pages a yellow tinge, while still preserving the integrity of Danilo’s beautiful art.
We’ll also be offering tons of cool swag – original art, trading cards, embroidered DDD patches, posters – and opportunities for YOU to become a DAREDEVIL and be drawn into the webcomic!
Well, we REALLY hope you guys/gals are as excited about this as we are! This is our first Kickstarter campaign, so we’ve taken great care when it comes to research and planning to make sure we get it right, but none of that matters without your SUPPORT. WE NEED YOUR HELP to make DEEP DIVE DAREDEVILS No. 1 a reality!
So, steel thyself dear reader because it’s going to be a WILD RIDE, filled with drama, surprises, and hopefully an end-result that allows us to put an honest-to-goodness DDD comic in YOUR HANDS!
Anyways, till next week!
