The spectacular Tripwire magazine is 20 years old this year (I remember the first ones; I feel like an old man, now), and it’s looking to celebrate with a hardcover anniversary edition of its best material from that period… which is where you come in:
Over the last twenty years, TRIPWIRE has been covering comics, TV and film with interviews and columns by now-famous names like Grant Morrison and Warren Ellis. Still running as an annual publication, it continues to run feature-length articles and one-off artwork cover commissions.
2012 marks the 20th anniversary of TRIPWIRE, and to commemorate this milestone, Unbound are working with editor-in-chief Joel Meadows to crowd-fund a beautifully bound hardback celebration of the publication. It will be filled with the sort of content that has garnered praise from many of the biggest and best names in genre over its twenty-year existence.
Unbound is, essentially, Kickstarter for print projects, and so this hardcover is relying on donations to happen. But look what’s awaiting you if you contribute:
• Art from genre and comic geniuses Mike Mignola (Hellboy), Drew Struzan (Shawshank Redemption, Indiana Jones), Duncan Fegredo, Frank Quitely, Walter Simonson, Chris Weston, Howard Chaykin and many more
• Articles looking at the major trends and debates of the past two decades, including the best and worst comic movies 1992-2012, and which creators have come to the fore in the past 20 years
• Classic interviews and features that have made TRIPWIRE’s reputation, including Alan Moore, Frank Miller, Peter Milligan and Guillermo Del Toro
