I love the Samurai vibe that Sigrid is radiating in this picture.
I can’t believe this very cool image snuck past me during the campaign. Sorry it’s taken so long to reblog!

Tribute for Spider king, a graphic novel by Josh Vann and Simone D’armini
Already funded in Kickstarter!!
I know it’s been quiet here on the blog, but we’ve been locked away in isolation working hard on The Spider King book.
BUT! we’re back now, and we’ve got some great tributes and news to share, starting with this fantastic piece by my amazing friend Miguel Valderrama.
The Spider King
Simone and I would just like to take a moment to say a deep and heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who pledged towards The Spider King Kickstarter campaign. Without you, this book wouldn’t be possible, and we are honoured that you’ve placed your trust in us and our little project about Vikings fighting Aliens.
The support and encouragement that we’ve received over the last 30 days has been phenomenal, and unexpected. Before we launched we had no idea what the reception would be like, and you’ve blown us away with your enthusiasm. The fact that we’re already getting fan art for a book that doesn’t even exist yet is mind boggling. I hope we can create something that lives up to your expectations and delivers on the promises we’ve made.
Simone and I would like to thank all of the amazing artists who have contributed tributes over the last month, and really helped us to create a visual and exciting marketing campaign. We’d also like to thank all the Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr users who tweeted, shared and blogged about The Spider King.
There will be a special section in the book where we thank EVERYONE who’s contributed and helped us out, but that list is way too long for any one email update. Instead I’m just going to say:
"Thank YOU. YOU know who YOU are. YOU are an amazing human being, and a credit to your species."
We’ll hopefully have more exciting news to tell you in the coming weeks and months, and we’ll keep you up to date on the development of the book as we go.
Now I guess we just have to make it?
Thank you again.
Sigrid from the Spider King, a graphic novel by Simone d’Armini and Josh Vann, that has just been crowfunded!
Thanks Matteo! It’s beautiful.
Team! We’ve hit $25,000 on the kickstarter campaign! Which means that stretch goal 1 is unlocked, and the book will now be extended to 80 pages!
Every dollar over will be invested into making the book longer and meaner and bigger and badder.
There’s 3 hours left so if you’re planning to pledge NOW IS THE TIME!

There’s just 14 hours left to Fund The Spider King!
No video game character today I figured I’d lit suggestions build up a bit before I dive into the list. So for today I figured I’d contribute to the fantastic fan art for the exciting up and coming comic “The Spider King” http://thespiderking-comic.com/
The Spider King kickstarter is in its last 48 hours. GET SOME.
I thought I’d get the word out with this drawing of Sigrid (one of the characters from the Spider King comic) based on designs by the talented and handsome Simone D’Armini.
Simone and Josh are doing really great work. Treat yourself to their talents.
