Help fund an ACBC: 1950s new edition, and get the full set for $250 on Kickstarter!

The new edition of American Comic Book Chronicles: The 1980s was fully funded on Kickstarter in less than 12 hours! But you can still reserve a copy with a pledge (and get great discounts on other volumes).

Now let’s fund a reprint of the 1950s volume, which will be sold out before the campaign ends! Like with the 1980s book, you can also add other volumes to your initial pledge at a great discount!

And by popular demand, you can get the full 8-volume set (1940s-1990s) for only $250! This includes the new 1940-44 volume that ships this month, and next year’s 1945-49 edition!
