Today, I mailed Starbrand the proof copy of the Defiant Comics Fanzine 2020. It came in at a whopping 60 pages, 11 interviews, two reviews, one article, a price guide, a print run guide, a collector checklist of every known item/comic/card/etc. Once He's proofed it and the edits are complete, we will launch the kickstarter for all to participate. Thanks for your patience.

wow.
Great effort, looking forward to reading it.
I wish their was a Spinal Tap comic, and I had a copy CGC graded at 11.

Starbrand now has the sixty page Fanzine proof copy. He's currently going over the pages and making any edit notes. Our plan is to finish the proof copy, order a physical version for one final review in print form, and then launch the kickstarter. Right now we have four of five artists confirmed for the pledge level covers. Cover A (generic black defiant tower) and Cover B (Luis Rivera "Chasm Wins") are finished. The art for covers b, c, d, and e will also be available at pledge levels for those fans who collect physical art pages. I am working on sketch cards as well. Of course, we will offer a PDF version for entry level pledgers. Thanks for your support, John.

Where do things stand with the fanzine? I imagine like everything else it's on standby. I see the last update was a couple of months ago, so, I hope I didn't miss out. I'm excited to see the final product!

Just a quick update on the project, I received the edits yesterday via mail and will complete them, re-order the pages, and compile the final proof. We are working on several alternate covers for the kickstarter and possibly some surprises. The project is on schedule and we hope for as much support as possible.
