The importance of the launch of Worlds End – Volume 2 – A Hard Reign’s Gonna Fall “Science Fusion” Graphic Novel is even more vital than it was with the initial launch of Worlds End – Volume 1 – The Riders on the Storm.
Worlds End fans have been clamouring for a release date for it for the past four or five years. It was never in the plans to take so long to produce it, but as followers of Worlds End, Wizards Keep and Tim Perkins, you will already know about the obstacles and upsets of personal loss, personal illness and just about anything that could be thrown in the way of production of the artwork and has constantly confronted the team between volumes. It has almost been as though there was a physical presence not wishing the book to be completed.
It was always the plan to include a signed and numbered, limited edition print, like the one given away to all Pre-Orders prior to the launch of Worlds End 1. After all parting with one’s hard earned sheckles is bad enough at times, but paying up front before the book is ready for release (as we did with volume one) – well that is another thing entirely and shows just how loyal and supportive Worlds End fans are.
So, without further ado, here are the list of incentives…
INCENTIVE ONE – Applicable to all orders placed and paid for prior to the release date being announced later in 2017.
The first incentive for all fans/customers to receive a signed and numbered, limited edition print was needed for anyone ordering and paying for the second book as a Pre-Order book.
It was with all the above in mind that Tim and the Team decided that something other than a single signed and numbered, limited edition print was needed for anyone ordering and paying for the second book as a Pre-Order book.
INCENTIVE TWO – Applicable to The FIRST 100 orders placed and paid for prior to the release date being announced later in 2017.
As a result of this thinking it was decided that a second signed and numbered, limited edition print with a space left open and unfinished for Tim to remark with an individual, unique, original sketch on it to complete the image was called for.
This still didn’t seem quite enough though, however, and so it was decided to add a third incentive into the Pre-Order mix.
INCENTIVE THREE – Applicable to ONE Lucky Fan/Customer with an order placed and paid for prior to the release date being announced later in 2017.
The third incentive is for one very lucky Pre-Order Fan/Customer to have their name drawn out of a wizard’s hat and then adapted by Tim and added to the intricately detailed Worlds End Map of Gaeyrth in the front pages of the book. Their names becoming the name of a place or city or even an island or continent.
Their name will appear alongside such stalwarts of the comic industry, as Jack Kirby, Barry Kitson, John Ridgway, Bryan Talbot, Mike Ploog, Frank Brunner, Frank Frazetta and John Buscema, as well as family and friends and the members of the Wicked Comics Team – the Organisers of the mighty MaltaComicCon – all of whom have their names on the map in this way.
There, the lucky winner will see their names translated into the fantasy language used by the indigenous peoples of the mediaeval world of Gaeyrth and immortalised forever like those above into something like these…
…amongst many others
However, that still didn’t seem to be enough, here at the Keep and so it was decided to add a fourth incentive into the eldritch mix.
INCENTIVE FOUR – Applicable to ONE Lucky Fan with an order placed and paid for prior to the release date being announced later in 2017.
The fourth incentive is for one very lucky Pre-Order Fan/Customer to have their name drawn out of a wizard’s hat and then see them supplied with heavy duty, Worlds End-themed washable wallpaper using the Mural Artz technique to customise a wall in their house, office, studio, garage or den or wherever they want it to hang.
The image area can be up to a size of 12 Feet in width by 8 Feet high. It will come as rolls of wallpaper – all you need to do is carefully hang or employ a decorator to hang it for you.
The lucky winner will be given a few options to choose from between artwork from one of the double page spreads or else panels and logos from the first two books, put together and made into patterned wallpaper.
The idea for this came to Tim a short while ago after a couple of discussions with clients about the Mural Artz product.
So, there you have it.
Place your order now and you will get Incentive 1.
You will also get Incentive 2 if you place your order within the first 100 orders.
One of you will also then become immortalised on the Map of Gaeyrth from that moment on.
Another one of you will receive Worlds End-themed wallpaper to customise one of your walls.
It’s enough to get us to enter for ourselves…
All you need to do now, if you haven’t already, is to go to the Wizards Keep or Worlds End Shops on their respective websites and place an order for the second volume.
