I posted the news about the launch of my crowdfunding campaign for the reprints collection of the complete works of Ken Reid in WHAM!, SMASH! and POW! comics in my previous thread, but I hope it is OK to start a new one for updates.

In case you still haven't seen it, the campaign is now live and open to all on IndieGoGo platform here: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-power-pack-of-ken-reid-books/x/18513990#/

I started it last Friday and I am happy to say that it is already 50 per cent backed!

The campaign is now 75 per cent backed - and counting!

To celebrate this achievement, I have posted some good quality images of Frankie Stein original artwork by Ken on my blog. You can see them here: http://kazoop.blogspot.com/2018/06/crowdfunding-news-update-75-per-cent.html

Hi, the campaign will end as scheduled - I can't change that.
Nor can I move the arrangements with the printing house and print the books earlier. Besides, I am hoping for more than 100 per cent :D

The crowdfunding campaign is 92 per cent backed as of now, and there are still more than three weeks to go!

Looking at the list of supporters, I am happy to see that affection for Ken's work goes far beyond the UK - there are backers from the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, Greece and Germany!

Here is the link to the most recent News Update on my blog, with the second half of Frankie Stein original artwork page. https://kazoop.blogspot.com/2018/06/crowdfunding-news-update-nearly-there.html

I did a few interviews on various blogs to support the campaign, and here are the links, in case you missed them:

The campaign has now reached 100 per cent of its goal! The most recent supporter was the 17 year-old British Artist/Satirist Zoom Rockman, demonstrating that the appreciation of Ken’s work goes way beyond nostalgia!

There are still nearly three weeks to go, and the fact that the goal has now been reached does not mean that further contributions aren’t accepted! The Etherington brothers achieved 24 000 per cent with their recent Kickstarter campaign! :)

Remember that Supporters will be the only ones who will be proud owners of the slipcase edition and prints of original artwork – these perks won’t be available to the general public when the campaign ends and the books are printed!
