A 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.
Rank & File vol 3, the next installment in the ultimate modern G.I. Joe reference series, is coming soon!
At JBL we’re very exciting to report that noted author James Kavanaugh’s next exciting reference volume is coming very soon! Volume 1 and Volume 2 proved to be amazing and this next installment looks to be James’ best work yet! (That’s saying something as RAHC Guide was pretty AMAZING.)
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!
