I should have written about this before, but the Kickstarter for Volume 3 of J. Miles Dunn’s Grinidon is entering it’s last week, and there is a fair bit of news to report for those following the saga so far.
But perhaps the biggest news of all is that there will be a new artist, Pepe Valencia! Dunn explained the hiring in an update to backer’s earlier, saying:
The reason we have hired Pepe – and are still looking for a third artist – is because we want to work on multiple volumes at once. This way we can release 3 graphic novels per year instead of 1, and can do so without sacrificing anything in terms of quality.
Even though these are lengthy books, who really wants to wait a year at a time for them, especially considering the story is already written? With our recent staff increase, I can now focus on script while the rest of our team works-on concept art, social media, shipping, inventory, etc.”
Pepe’s work is indeed amazing, as you can see from the pin-up and additional artwork below:
You can of course get more detailed info by checking out the Kickstarter page. The main book is only $20 (a bargain), and is also offered in a digital tier as well. You can also catch up on earlier volumes, get original art from Volumes 1 & 2 (Highly Recommended), as well as some other neat swag.
Moby’s! highest recommendation, please take a moment to check it out.
