Rank & File volume 2 & 3 Reprint Kickstarter almost funded!

With EIGHT days to go, the Rank & File volume 2 & 3 reprint Kickstarter has nearly reached its goal!

Rank & File vol 3 reprintA good reference book is an invaluable resource when managing a collection. In fact, you might even say that it’s ESSENTIAL, especially when the collection involves multiple variations of characters and a seemingly endless supply of tiny accessories.  The internet and hobby dedicated websites are an invaluable resource but nothing beats a good tangible book filled with high quality photos showcasing every knife, pistol, helmet, and accessory.  Plus, a good book is always there whether or not you have a WiFi connection available.

Enter the Rank & File book series from “noted author” (and long-time friend of JBL) James Kavanaugh!

We’ve talked about these books before.  Rank & File volumes 1, 2, and 3 have proven to be so popular with fans that the original print runs of all three have sold out, with volume 1 receiving a second printing!  Now, supplies of volumes 2 & 3 are almost gone and newly-revised and updated second printings are seeking funding on Kickstarter!  With just eight days remaining, this project could use your support to reach its goal and see this books available once more!

The current campaign ends Saturday March 17, 2018 at 7:10pm CST.

3.75 Joe razorback

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!
