ComixTribe has launched a Kickstarter campaign allowing people to pre-order OXYMORON Volume 1, a hardcover graphic novel collection of stories about a contradiction-obsessed supervillain.
The Oxymoron is a character from ComixTribe’s maxi-series THE RED TEN by Tyler James and Cesar Feliciano. This spin-off anthology features ten stories by writers and artists, including Jason Ciaramella (The Cape, Godzilla), Mark Poulton (Savage Hawkman, Avengelyne), Joe Mulvey (SCAM) and more, and is edited by ComixTribe publisher Tyler James.
ComixTribe has made one of the stories in the collection, Living Dead by Mark Bertolini (Breakneck, Fubar II) and Carl Yonder (Ghost Lines, Fubar II), available in its entirety as a FREE PDF download.
The OXYMORON Volume 1 Hardcover will debut at the 2012 New York Comic Con in October, with backers starting to receive the books shortly after. The standard cost for a signed hardcover is $25.00 and includes shipping, but there are a variety of pledge levels available. ComixTribe will also be offering a number of direct-to-retailer incentives, including 55% off the cover price to retailers and brick & mortar exclusivity through 2012.
