UPDATE #2: Newton Comics - The Amazing Rise & Spectacular Fall Book - New Incentives Added

Wanting an update on the Newton Comics book? Then you're in the right place.  We're almost halfway towards achiving full funding via Pozible, but there's still a long way to go yet. If you can't donate then that's fine, just spread the word as far and as wide as possible.   The URL for the book funding is here: http://www.pozible.com/project/23150/120085

In the meantime I've added a lot more incentives.  There's original art from the likes of Norm Breyfogle, Michael Golden, Herb Trimpe, Fred Hembeck, Tom Grindberg, Dave Simons, Ron Frenz, Tom Smith, Alex Saviuk, Ron Wilson, Mike McKone, Mark Bagley, Alan Weiss, Steve Rude, plus signed comics from John Romita Sr, Walter Simonson and Jerry Ordway, and some rare comics such as the first four issues of Hellblazer, the first five issues of Alan Moore's Miracleman and more.  There's 25 days to go, so pop over, be part of history and make a pledge.

Melbourne and Australian based folk might want to see if you can get your PR people interested - this was a Melbourne based company after all and has all the right ingredients for a juicy story - sex, drugs, rock and roll, comic books, crime, brothels, politics - you name, Newton did more than dabble in it. Americans with an interest in comic book history? Well this is the FIRST full length book about an Australian publisher and, don't forget, they managed to take Marvel Comics for over $30,000 in 1975. That wasn't chump change.   Comic books were never like this before, or since.

Get in there and share the love.
