Raymond Leonard’s Kickstarter for his series, “Agent Solo” ended during the last quarter of 2016, and shipments have been sent out to all those who pledged to his project. I chose the “Agent Solo: Extravaganza Deal,” which included the Agent Solo action figure, three 11 x 17 prints, an 11 x 17 full-body Agent Solo commission, the T-Shirt, a bonus sketch, and the autographed print copy of the book. This also includes an executive producer listing on the credits page, so overall, this was a great deal. Raymond also individually drew a bust of Agent Solo on each of the envelopes he sent out to his backers, so this was a neat, creative idea he came up with.
Unfortunately, there was a downpour in Chicago today…the day that I received this package! I feared this might happen, but I opened the envelope carefully. The wonderful thing is that Raymond packaged these really well. Nothing on the inside was wet or damaged, and everything was carefully wrapped in a plastic bag, surrounded by thick pieces of cardboard. I was relieved after seeing all the contents were undamaged, so now I can rest easy.
Here’s the printed book, autographed nicely in metallic gold ink. For the full review, click HERE. I can’t recommend this book more, it was easily worthy of Anything Geek Culture’s very first “Hidden Gem” honor.
Overall, what a great Kickstarter this was. From the digital download last year, to the physical items this year, it was an honor to be a backer of this project. Kickstarter is a great way to support independent (indie) comics, and to be a part of these projects. The future is indie comics, and that’s what Anything Geek Culture is all about. To showcase these indie titles and make people aware of them.
