Sam Glanzman’s ‘Voyage To The Deep’ Is The Next Collection From It’s Alive!
Kickstarter Campaign for ‘Voyage To The Deep’ Heads Towards Third Stretch Goal
San Diego, CA (November 29, 2016) – With two successfully funded Kickstarter campaigns under its belt, and a third one on the horizon, It’s Alive!, an exciting new imprint of IDW Publishing, is just days away from another fully funded project in VOYAGE TO THE DEEP by Sam Glanzman. This third collection from It’s Alive! is a series of comics books that have been out of print for almost 55 years and will now be collected for the first time ever!
VOYAGE TO THE DEEP follows the adventures of Admiral Jonathan Leigh, as he commands the mighty Proteus (a shape-shifting atomic sub) through the deepest of Earth's oceans, battling fanged sea creatures, arctic monsters, anti-mater generators, sonic attacks, and even terrorism!
Golden Age comic book master, and WWII veteran, Sam Glanzman has been drawing comics for over 70 years. Through It’s Alive! publisher Drew Ford's recent efforts, many new collections of Glanzman's out-of-print work are now back on the shelves for long-time fans to enjoy, and new readers to discover for decades to come. Mark Waid called Glanzman "...a National treasure in the field of illustration.", and The A.V. Club praised Glanzman as "...one of the great storytellers of 20th century comics."
The VOYAGE TO THE DEEP Kickstarter page has now reached its goal and will be another successful campaign for the young imprint, however it’s not too late to pledge your support and become a backer yourself. As a backer, you will not only be helping Sam Glanzman, but you will also be helping Ford to continue his mission of saving the history of comics, one book at a time!
The Kickstarter is currently within striking distance of its third stretch goal – every paperback copy of VOYAGE TO THE DEEP turns into an over-sized hardcover when the total reaches $13,000. Head to the VOYAGE TO THE DEEP Kickstarter page now to become apart of comic book history before the campaign ends on Saturday, December 3, 2016!
