SHI: RETURN OF THE WARRIOR INDIEGOGO BREAKS $70K!
NEW INDEMAND EXCLUSIVES – AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #300 HOMAGE AND SHIROI EDITIONS ARE NOW AVAILABLE!

$75K STRETCH GOAL REWARD ANNOUNCED!
COMIC PUSHES PAST $140,000.00 TOTAL!!

1,449 Indiegogo backer partners supporting the new variant editions have surged Shi: Return of the Warrior to $70,263.00 and the campaign shows no sign of stopping!

Since going into Indiegogo Indemand mode, Shi’s total duel campaign backer count has reached an amazing 2,458, moving Crusade Comics to add special Fan Appreciation Reward Editions!

Shi creator Billy Tucci exclaimed, “Thanks to our incredible supporters, we’re now offering two new variant editions, the SHI: SHIROI INDEMAND EXCLUSIVE and the AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 300 HOMAGE FAN APPRECIATION EDITION.” Tucci continued, “These books were originally slated to be our convention exclusives, but since our backers have been so wonderful in their support, and the fact that my con appearances will be half of last year, it’s only appropriate we offer them through Indiegogo to our most loyal friends.”

Many backers have expressed interest in a SHIROI white armored variant of the IGG Exclusive SHI: SUNFIRE EDITION which according to Tucci, “Might be my favorite Shi illustration of all time!” Tucci stated that, “We also continually get requests for the sold out NYCC ASM #300 Homage Edition, so we produced its own Fan Appreciation Edition. Only 300 of this second-chance opportunity will be offered until the Return of the Warrior Indemand closes in the coming weeks.”

For those interested in acquiring these comics or adding to their original perks, Return of the Warrior remains LIVE on Indiegogo here:
