Fandom Funding: Unlikely Heroes Studios are Releasing a New Artbook!

Fandom Funding features a geeky/nerdy crowdfunding project that highlights an existing fandom or looks to create a new one.

Today’s Fandom Funding is The Art of Ian Richardson: Artbook.

No description available.
Those unfamiliar with Mr. Richardson have probably unknowingly seen his work in one place or another – he is the ongoing artist for Judge Dredd and has penciled many a book for Marvel UK; Captain America, The Falcon, Doctor Doom, Spider-Man, Iron Man, Luke Cage, and Modok. He penciled Noble Causes for Image, as well as Sinister Dexter for 2000AD.  He also penciled Unlikely Heroes’ The Unthinkables and is in progress on Issue 2 of that.
