It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of Dan Klingensmith’s incredible 3.75″ Joe series of books.  (Also known as 3.75 Inch Joe: Creating G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero) These meticulously researched volumes collect rare pieces of production artwork and pair them with insightful commentary from the classic line’s original designers.  The end result is nothing short of amazing– a brilliantly laid-out piece that long-time Joe fans will pore over for hours.

That’s right kids, 3.75″ Joe Volume 3 has four days left to fund on Kickstarter!  Currently the project has raised $14,600 toward a goal of $16,000 needed to publish the next installment.  It’s a completely achievable goal and one that our fandom should help achieve.  A copy of the book is available for a pledge of support of only $40.00

I’ll admit it– I’ve been remiss on posting about this.  3.75″ Joe, volumes 1 & 2, have been sitting on my reference shelf since they were first published.  They’re AMAZING volumes chock full of incredible pre-production artwork and insights into the designs of our favorite Real American Heroes.  The previous two volumes include commentary from G.I. Joe designers and even the former brand manager of the ARAH years.  They’re just utterly AMAZING works that can be enjoyed by EVERY fan of the ARAH era G.I. Joe!

Seriously– if you have the extra funds, consider supporting this AMAZING project!
