Collecting the art of G.I. Joe: Volume 5 (1990-1992) now on Kickstarter

3DJoes shared word yesterday that Collecting the art of G.I.Joe Volume 5 (1990-1992) is now live on Kickstarter! It’s no surprise that volume 5 has already blown through it’s initial goal funding of $11K, so by pledging you’re already guaranteed a copy. The fun part? One of the stretch goals is for Volume 6 which will cover 1993 – 1994. To hit this goal, the campaign must reach $22K…but at $15K after just one day, things are looking very hopeful!

Thanks to Chad Hucal, 3DJoes is ready to go to press with Volume 5! Volume 1 featured 62 unique pieces of art, Volume 2 featured 95, Volume 3 featured 126, and Volume 4 featured 147. Volume 5 is bigger than ever, featuring 158 unique pieces of art and covering three years of material! 

The cover will once again be card stock with an AccuFoil print, and the 80# pages will be saddle stitched, so the two page 11×16” spreads can lay flat and art will not be lost to the gutter! You’ll be glad to know the price hasn’t changed, we’re holding the line at $35 for the Accufoil Softcover. We’ve mirrored the tiers below, so make sure to read on to check them out. 

Will you be getting in on Volume 5? Or will you be going in for both Volume 5 & 6 like we did? Join in on the discussion already in progress on the Cobra Island Forums
