Full Bleed’s Second Volume Hits Kickstarter Featuring Simonson, Okrafor, The Hernandez Bros. And More

by Hannah Means Shannon

If you haven’t previously heard about Full Bleed, the anthology of comics, interviews, and cool things related to pop culture was successfully funded on Kickstarter and edited at IDW PDX by Dirk Wood.
Now, the second volume has arrived on Kickstarter for the hardback quarterly anthology, and it will reach 200 print-only pages before arriving in comic shops in July 2018.
Full Bleed Vol. 2: Deep Cuts is currently funding on Kickstarter.
Creative Director Dirk Wood says:

It’s been so gratifying to see the response to the first volume, but we’re just getting started here. As much as we loved how the first one turned out, this one takes it up a notch.

The second volume contains contents ranging from interviews with Walter Simonson, author Nnedi Okorafor, and Gilbert & Jaime Hernandez of Love and Rockets, to features on war photographers, traveling in Iceland, punk rock legends, old comic shops and the illuminati; new comics about the gods of ancient California, rock and roll concerts, and U-Boats; more new short fiction stories from noted authors; political rants from famed cartoonists, and more.

Their “continuing mission statement” can be found below:
FULL BLEED is a quarterly, print-only 200-page hardcover magazine, curated and edited by IDW Publishing’s Dirk Wood alongside CEO and founder, Ted Adams. Bringing together the very best in comics, fiction, non-fiction, in-depth interviews, opinion, history, think-pieces and more, FULL BLEED will be a reading experience like no other. This gorgeous hand-crafted cultural document will be a welcome addition to any bookshelf. Shot through an international lens, but filtered through the unique perspective of the IDW:PDX satellite office in Portland Oregon, FULL BLEED will tackle all aspects of the creative culture, and beyond — comics, music, film, television, fine art, photography, design, politics and more. FULL BLEED seeks true and total diversity through it’s content, creators and contributors, as well as genre and format.
FULL BLEED is the premiere publication from IDW’s new Oregon-based imprint; WOODWORKS. IDW & WOODWORKS are dedicated to helping Traveling Stories, a charity dedicated to children’s literacy and “outsmarting poverty one book at a time,” as well as the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, for their continued work for literacy and libraries. WOODWORKS aims to make “smart books for smart people,” with the hope of “helping to make a few more smart people.”
FULL BLEED Vol. 2 is live on Kickstarter (BACK NOW) and is scheduled for release in early July.
