Raven Graphic Novel Kickstarter in the Home Stretch!

Raven Graphic Novel Art - Raven BurningThere are less than ten more days for Visionary Comic’s Raven Graphic Novel Kickstarter funding drive, and they keep adding new perks with each new stretch goal. Some opportunities of special note include:

  • Original Deadlands Classic artwork! We don’t mean a copy of anything—we’re talking the actual originals hand-made by the artists straight from our historic vaults of rare and special things!
  • You in the story! Seriously, how many of your friends could possibly say they’ve been killed by a Servitor of War hell-bent on wide-scale revenge on immigrants?
  • Visionary staff working for you! That’s right, you can get the expertise available only from Visionary applied to your very own projects if you play your cards right.

There’s too many more to summarize, so be sure to take a gander at the Kickstarter campaign for yourself! If you’ve been meaning to join in, now’s the time before it’s too late. With less than ten days left now, you don’t want to miss your chance!

If you missed them at Gen Con, you can still catch Visionary at Baltimore Comic-Con September 8-9. You can even commit to the Kickstarter campaign on site! Everyone making pre-orders at conventions gets a special on-site thank you! They’ll also have the Dead Man’s Hand trade paperback collecting their first one-shots, all new gaming content, and a new short story from Matthew Cutter! They’ll also have Deadlands prints for sale, and will be happy to sign (pretty much) anything you like. The entire creative team will be on site at Baltimore, and artist Greg LaRoque will be sketching and taking commissions!

Raven Graphic Novel Kickstarter Going Strong and Getting Better

Raven Graphic Novel KickstarterVisionary Comic’s Raven Graphic Novel Kickstarter is well over a quarter way to its goal! It’s an exciting time for Deadlands fans, but it’s an even better time for the Kickstarter backers—Visionary has already met four stetch goals, sweetening the pot each time.

At $1,000, each and every backer gets 10% off Deadlands PDFs! When the Kickstarter campaign closes down, you’ll get an e-mail with further details for getting your discount.

At $2,000, they’re giving every supporter a free PDF of the brand new 8-page short story written by Matthew Cutter, our own Deadlands Brand Manager and co-writer on the Raven graphic novel! You can also get that in print in the Dead Man’s Hand trade paperback.

At $3,000, they added a 16-page bonus supplement written by Shane Lacy Hensley, the original creator of Deadlands and Raven! What it is exactly is still a secret, but it’s definitely going to be 16 pages of all Shane, all Deadlands! This will only be in the print collected editions, so be sure you’ve got the $25 Bonus Level of Just Give me the Trade or the $50 Ravenite Tier Level.

At $4,000, Visionary had two surprises. First, they added additional bonus levels for folks who want just the trades and nothing else—for $15, add the Dead Man’s Hand trade or add both the Dead Man’s Hand and Raven printed trades for $40. Second, they dug deep into their supplies and came up with 25 more Collector’s Packs, since they’ve been so popular!

Return to Manitou Bluff Available for Preorder

Return to Manitou BluffDuring the Battle of Lost Angels, a catastrophic earthquake tore Clover Mesa into four parts and revealed a motherlode of ghost rock at its center. Everyone from Kang’s triad to the Union to the Wasatch Rail Co. is after its riches, and they’ll do whatever it takes to seize them.

But Clover Mesa wasn’t always an object of desire. It used to be a dumping ground for the dregs of Maze society, and it was known by a different name back then—Manitou Bluff.

Return to Manitou Bluff is an adventure for Legendary Rank heroes, including all the people, places, and plots you need to run this epic tale. Take care, amigo! Things aren’t always what they seem, and sometimes death—or somethin’ worse—is hiding just around the bend. If your Legendary posse is looking for more excitement after completing The Flood, there’s no better place to send ’em than Manitou Bluff!

If you’ve got a ghoulish sort of curiosity, you might want to check out the Special Perdition Supplement of the Tombstone Epitaph. Read what the finest paper in the Weird West has to say about Clover Mesa without spending a nickel—plug, wooden, buffalo, or otherwise.

Get your copy of Return to Manitou Bluff in PDF today (from the Pinnacle PDF store, Studio 2 Publishing, or DriveThruRPG), preorder a print copy, or get the best of  both worlds with the Print-PDF bundle (get the PDF immediately, the print copy as soon as it’s available, and a discount on the pair)!

Deadlands Reloaded Trail Guides, Volume 1Take a tour of the less-traveled Weird West with your Epitaph correspondent Phineas P. Gage for the first three Deadlands Trail Guides now compiled into one volume for ease of reference.

In Trail Guide: South o’ the Border, visit beautiful Mexico. Bask in the sun as centuries-old hatred festers in the midst of a three-sided civil war.

In Trail Guide: Great Northwest, you’ll see the snow has its own beauty. But in this land gripped by Famine, you might give your left arm for some jerky, and that might be what it’s used for! When a war between the unnatural beasts in the woods threatens to wipe humanity from the region, will your posse be up to the challenge?

Finally, the Trail Guide: Weird White North takes you to the tundra of Alaska and British Columbia, a land locked in ice north of the amazing Winterline, a fence made by Hellstromme Industries to hold back the cold itself! But something more sinister, more malevolent than mere winter is being held in check…for now!

Each Trail Guide offers you a closer look at the people, places, and—perhaps most important—things you’ll see in each region. And don’t forget the mini-Plot Point Campaigns and Savage Tales in each, as well. You’re bound to have fun or die tryin’!

Deadlands Trail Guides, Volume 1 is now available for preorder. Preorder the printed book or get the PDF (from the Pinnacle PDF store, Studio 2 Publishing, or DriveThruRPG).
