It’s Alive! to publish Tanith Lee’s The Silver Metal Lover by Trina Robbins
It’s Alive! has passed its initial goal of $10,000 to bring Tanith Lee’s The Silver Metal Lover back to print! However, there’s still time left in the Kickstarter campaign for more fans to pledge to this exciting collection which already blew through its two stretch goals. That includes a Silver Metal Lover sticker featuring Trina Robbins‘ artwork from the book after the pledges passed 200 backers. Plus, now that the campaign has hit $11,000, all backers will also receive a mini print which showcases Trina Robbins’ art.
Originally published in 1985, this work has never been reprinted in any form. This new edition will feature a new variant cover by Colleen Doran, who will also provide the afterword, a new foreword by Gail Simone, and a new intro by Trina Robbins herself. Bonus content will include a special essay about the late Tanith Lee’s life and work by her husband, artist/writer John Kaiine,
All of this will be printed at 8.5″ x 11, full color, on glossy paper, all tucked inside a beautiful, deluxe hardcover.
Many exciting rewards are being offered, including signed copies of the book, exclusive prints from Colleen Doran, sketches by legendary comic book pros, including Bill Sienkiewicz, Ron Frenz, and Larry Hama, and even original pages of comic book art by Trina Robbins!
The Kickstarter is active from now until the evening of Friday, January 5, 2018. Get pledging!
