only 13 days left to pre-order The Jewish Comix Anthology

With less than 2 weeks remaining for the fundraising campaign, what have people been saying across the blogosphere about The Jewish Comix Anthology?

Jay Deitcher at Unleash the Fanboy :
I cannot believe the names attached to this project - Robert Crumb, Will Eisner, Michael Netzer, Terry LaBan, Trina Robbins, Joe Kubert, (Pulitzer Prize winner) Art Spiegelman and a friend of mine, Steve Sheinkin. Initiate geek-out mode. It will even feature Crumb’s version of the Golem, ooh yeah, baby! With forty-seven top creators telling classic Jewish tales, this is going to be awesome.
Lauren Herstik at Nerdist :
It’s Michael Chabon’s The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay come to life.

Kris Johnson at Geek Hard :
The team of Steven M. Bergson and Andy Stanleigh have really put together something special and it definitely deserves your attention.
Elissa Goldstein of Jewcy :
It basically sounds like the ideal bat mitzvah /afikoman / Jewish life-cycle gift. You can have too many challah-covers. You can never have too many comics!

All Jewish Digital :
There is a large following of the project from all over the globe, and AH Comics is hoping to see the momentum build into what may be one of the most unique and culturally significant publications of our time.
Robert J. Sodaro of We Love Comics :
It is very easy to get excited about the line-up of amazing talents involved in this book; including several artists whose original artwork is up for grabs as backer rewards; including Adam Gorham, Haiwei Hou, Katherine Piro, and Michael Netzer.
Barry Deutsch of Alas! A Blog :
fans of Jewish comics should definitely check out The Jewish Comix Anthology, which looks like it’ll be really excellent.
All pledges are in Canadian dollars and the lowest pledge allowed is $1.00 (but every little bit helps).

There have been several important changes to the reward levels since my original post about the campaign.


* a $30 "no frills" reward has been added, which entitles the funder to simply the hardcover book

* a $25 reward has been added which entitles the funder to the digital copy of the book (new material only), a set of 5 bookmarks, a set of 5 postcards, and an exclusive Golem t-shirt with an illustration by David G. Klein


* only 9 more editions to be signed by 6 of the creators (Adam GorhamKatherine PiroAndy StanleighShane Kirshenblatt, Liat Shalom, and Steven M. Bergson) are left to be claimed by those pledging $72

* only 2 pieces of signed original framed artwork remain to be claimed :
 - an illustration titled "Feeling" by Michael Netzer (for a pledge of $360, shipping included)
- a golem illustration by David G. Klein (for a pledge of $540, shipping included)

There is still a one-time opportunity to obtain a Jewish Comix Anthology first printing hardcover signed by Art Spiegelman ($1,000 pledge), as well as the opportunity to obtain one of the 4 producer credits available ($4,500 pledge).

We hope we can count on you for your support.
