It’s Alive! launches Kickstarter to publish The Silver Metal Lover
Drew Ford, known for putting together dozens of archival reprint collections, such as the Eisner Award nominated The Puma Blues by Stephen Murphy & Michael Zulli, and U.S.S. Stevens: The Collected Stories by Sam Glanzman, now runs his own imprint at IDW called It’S Alive!, where he continues his mission of bringing lost and forgotten graphic novels and uncollected comic book runs back into print! Saving the history of comics one book at a time!
Ford is Kickstarting to publish Tanith Lee’s The Silver Metal Lover graphic novel adaptation by Trina Robbins. Originally published in 1985, it has never been reprinted in any form. This new edition will have a new cover and afterword by Colleen Doran, a new foreword by Gail Simone, and a new intro by Trina Robbins herself. All of this will be printed at 8.5″ x 11, full color, on glossy paper, all tucked inside a beautiful hard cover.
The graphic novel tells an intimate story of a young girl’s first love…who just happens to be a robot!
Many exciting rewards are being offered, including signed copies of the book, exclusive prints from Colleen Doran, sketches by comic book pros, and even original pages of comic book art by Trina Robbins!
