Top Cow is celebrating the 30th anniversary of the debut of Marc Silvestri’s Cyberforce with a crowdfunding project for a hardcover collecting many of the early stories featuring the characters.
The project is already live on Kickstarter and has blown well past its $30,000 goal, with more than $100,000 raised thus far.
The collection will include Silvestri’s original Cyberforce series from 1994, which has never been collected, in addition to volume 2 of the series, several miniseries and one-shots, and a crossover with Jim Lee’s WildCATS. In addition to Silverstri and Lee, the hardcover will feature early Image work by Todd McFarlane, Walter Simonson, David Finch, Joe Chiodo, Scott Williams, Brian Haberlin, Joe Benitez and Michael Turner.
In addition to the stories, the project comes with a lot of extras as well — including prints by McFarlane and Stjepan Sejic, a bookplate signed by Silvestri and a Kickstarter-exclusive dust jacket.
“The 664 page hardcover is a nostalgic masterpiece in itself, but the Todd McFarlane and Stjepan Sejic prints, the 30th anniversary commemorative edition…along with all the other rewards make this one a HUGE celebration!” said Top Cow President Matt Hawkins. “Thirty years is a milestone for any project or company and we look forward to thirty more.”
As far as the rewards go, a $30 pledge will get you a digital copy, while the hardcover will cost you $50. Other tiers offer T-shirts, the Sejic print, enamel pins and more.
