In addition, the campaign today offered one final edition; the exquisite SHI: SUN FIRE VARIANT EDITIONS EXCLUSIVE TO ALL INDIEGOGO BACKERS!

“We are so thrilled by the support our IGG backers have given us and now having passed $40K, we hope this exclusive edition show’s our sincerest gratitude.” Tucci stated. “Wes did an astounding job on the color, making it one of my favorite Shi covers ever!”

“Our 22-Day campaign is coming to an end and being on the verge of $100,000.00 proves that the spirit of independence is thriving in comics.”  Stated Tucci, “And if the winds of bushido set right our sails, all our physical backers will receive The Amazing Spider-Man 300 Homage Pure Line Edition as a token of our appreciation!” 

Also due to the success of their Cyber Monday Event, all CM reward specials have been continued for the rest of the campaign.

The Legendary George Perez has come out of retirement for ONE FINAL SHI COVER and has reduced the Kickstarter campaign price of his original Shi: ROTW cover artwork to an astonishingly low $2,750! Proceeds from the sale Mr. Perez’s beautiful cover will benefit the American Legion, so it’s also a great time to help our heroes for the holidays! George’s art normally sells five-times higher, so this truly is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity

Tucci stated, “Again, we THANK YOU all for your incredible support. It’s great to bring Shi back during the holidays and beyond!’”

Just THIRY HOURS remain as the campaign ends on December 6th at 11:59 EST. Please see the LIVE campaigns here:
