Study Group Spring Line Kickstarter

Zack Soto says it all, Study Group makes “beautiful print objects.” They are kickstarting their spring line, which consists of three full-color books: It Will All Hurt #2 by Farel Dalrymple, Haunter by Sam Alden, and Study Group Magazine #3D (yep, it has a 3-D section). This is basically a pre-order sale, so you can back/order any of those three titles (or any combination of them).

There is also a reward tier just for retailers, which I’ve never seen before. What a good idea (I might just steal it).

They have a pretty ambitious goal, and at this point they have a long way to go. You ought to help them out. Study Group is one of my favorite micro-presses, so they got my money.
