Kickstarter Spotlight: Red Range by Joe R. Lansdale & Sam Glanzman
Sam Glanzman and Joe R. Lansdale need your help to publish their graphic novel, Red Range.
After putting together over two dozen reprint collections at Dover Publications over the last two years (one of which was nominated for an Eisner Award, The Puma Blues by Stephen Murphy & Michael Zulli), Drew Ford has launched his own publishing imprint called It’s Alive!
The first book for the new publishing imprint is Red Range and a Kickstarter campaign has been started to bring it to print.
It was originally published in black and white by Mojo Press in 1999. Sadly, Mojo Press went out of business the same year Red Range was published, and it has been out of print ever since.
This new edition will be published in full color, on 70 lb glossy stock, with a newly designed matte cover, and a historical afterword about Red Range and the working relationship between Lansdale and Glanzman, by acclaimed Swamp Thing artist Stephen R. Bissette.
Combining an unusual mix of racial unrest, odd ball characters and strange happenings, Red Range is a unique take on “The Western”, and absolutely deserves to be back in print.
The campaign runs until June 25.
