(October 31, 2017 – Bellingham, WA) – Space Goat Productions launched the Evil Dead 2 Comic Book Omnibus and Art Book Kickstarter on October 19. They were successfully funded at $20,000 on October 25 with 30 days left in the campaign–and they are just getting started.
Included in their campaign are the giant 8″ x 12″ The Art of Evil Dead 2: Comic Books and Board Games as well as The Evil Dead 2 Omnibus. Both tomes are housed in a slipcase styled after the iconic Necronomicon Ex-Mortis from the cult classic film.
“These are big, beautiful, high-quality books that every Evil Dead fan will love to add to their collection,” said publisher Shon Bury.
Offered on the campaign was a tier that included a Kandarian Dagger alongside the slipcase set as well as a separate tier that offered the Necronomicon Ex-Mortis with the slipcase set. Both tiers sold out the first day. These prop replicas were sculpted by Tom Sullivan, the actual FX Artist that made the book and the dagger for Evil Dead 1 and 2.
In response, Space Goat Production reached out once more to the prop maker to secure more for a later 2018 delivery. Due to these events, Space Goat Productions is now able to provide a limited tier of 75 that includes the hardcover slipcase as well as both props and the Evil Dead 2 book set for $180. This new tier ships in July 2018. Supplies will not last long.
