Big Providence Kickstarter Campaign Underway Today

0f3ee791b41be8963a65e24fafbbcdee_originalAvatar Press launched a Kickstarter campaign today for handsome-looking new slipcase edition of Providence, which includes Neonomicon, plus a new “Dreadful Beauty” art book featuring Jacen Burrows 100+ covers.

The Kickstarter campaign also has a dozen more variant covers for Providence #12, with previously unused art. There are options for inexpensive digital editions to very high-end editions signed by Moore and Burrows.

At the time of this posting, the campaign has already far surpassed its $8,300 goal, with more than $40,000 pledged. The high-end limited edition autographed, remarqued $599 package is already sold out, but there are still plenty of packages to choose from for the discerning Providence reader.

Alan Moore’s latest project Cinema Purgatorio was announced this morning via Kickstarter. Watch Moore’s clever droll promotional video. As of 10 a.m. it is already fully funded, but, while supplies last, readers can still get some handsome Providence premiums: autographed copies of Providence #1 and a new Kickstarter exclusive Providence Act 1 book that collects Providence #1-4.

For Cinema Purgatorio, due out from Avatar Press in May 2016, Moore joins forces with his League of Extraordinary Gentlemen collaborator Kevin O’Neil, plus additional features by Kieron Gillen / Ignacio Calero, Garth Ennis / Raulo Caceres, Christos Gage / Gabriel Andrade (Moore’s collaborator on Crossed Plus One Hundred), and Max Brooks and Michael DiPascale (Moore and Burrows’ collaborator on Providence Weird Pulp variant covers.)

Cinema Purgatorio looks fun – who is up for collaborating on annotations?
