Ian Harker and Sacred Prism are collecting the first two issues of BLADES & LAZERS into one over-size volume. Click here for the Kickstarter page to back the project.

Here's the details from the Kickstarter:
BLADES & LAZERS will be a collection of the original risograph series by Benjamin Marra published by SACRED PRISM from 2013-2014.
The new book will be 40 pages, 9x12 with an additional story by Benjamin Marra, a back-up story by Lale Westvind, as well as original pin-ups and supplemental material by various rad art-cartoonists.
Most rad of all will be the new printing format which will be 2-Color offset throughout with FLUORESCENT PINK and METALLIC BLUE spot colors!!!
So yeah, if you know about Benjamin Marra, Sacred Prism, etc you know this book will be sick.
The cost breakdowns roughly are:
60% - Printing/Freight
30% - Artist Compensation
10% - Distribution

Risks and challenges

75% of this book is already "in the can" so there is a very low likelyhood for delays, but it's always possible.

Shane Wood, over at Eagle Eye Prime Toys, is creating an action figure for my upcoming graphic novel, TERROR ASSAULTER: O.M.W.O.T. (One Man War On Terror). Above and below are the different figure 3-D designs. At the bottom is the sculpt of the figures. Each will have the same body, but there will be three different figures, each with a different head. There will be O.M.W.O.T., FREEDOM WARRIOR CHAMPION, and LIZARD OVERLORD.

TERROR ASSAULTER: O.M.W.O.T. (One Man War On Terror) will be published as a graphic novel by Fantagraphics. It will come out in the fall of 2015. Below is the press release:

Fantagraphics Teams Up With Benjamin Marra To Explode Your Head Off

JANUARY 2, 2015, SEATTLE, WA—Fantagraphics Books is proud to announce the acquisition of Benjamin Marra’s TERROR ASSAULTER: O.M.W.O.T. (One Man War On Terror), to be released in the Fall 2015 season. Cartoonist Benjamin Marra brilliantly satirizes America’s obsession with justice — and disinterest in consequences — via a highly stylized, hyper-masculine style that evokes 1980s independent comics and, to a lesser extent, the blissfully ignorant aesthetics of 1990s Image Comics like Todd McFarlane’s Spawn and Rob Liefeld’s Youngblood. Gushing with violence, sex, and international politics, TERROR ASSAULTER batters down the boundaries between psychedelia, political commentary, and aggressive expressionism.

TERROR ASSAULTER: O.M.W.O.T. (One Man War On Terror) is a graphic novel about a man on a mission for the greatest nation on earth: America! He must defeat Terror at all costs, as long as it leaves time for steamy dates with hot chicks. The man’s codename is O.M.W.O.T. (One Man War On Terror) and he is a walking punching fist, shooting gun, and fucking cock. He is the world’s greatest protector. He is a villain’s worst nightmare.

“Benjamin Marra’s comics have a real visceral energy to them that I find very alluring,” explains Fantagraphics Associate Publisher Eric Reynolds. “I’ve been a fan for a number of years and I’m glad my badgering him to do a book with us finally wore him down. In an era when torture has become a mere policy issue rather than a human rights abuse, sometimes you just need to underscore the absurdity of it all, and Terror Assaulter delivers in spades.”

“I’m beyond thrilled to have my first long-form comic book narrative to find a home with Fantagraphics, a publisher with an unparalleled legacy in the medium,” says cartoonist Benjamin Marra. “With TERROR ASSAULTER: O.M.W.O.T. (One Man War On Terror) I hope to create a story readers will never forget, alter American foreign policy forever and shatter human civilization. But let’s just say...I hope those who take the time to read it are entertained above all else.”

Benjamin Marra is the controversial and influential creator of the comic books  Night Business, Gangsta Rap Posse, The Incredibly Fantastic Adventures of Maureen Dowd (A Work of Satire and Fiction), Lincoln Washington: Free Man!, and Blades & Lazers. Marra has been compared to pulpy comics stylists like Paul Gulacy and Jim Steranko, as well as underground comix legends like R. Crumb and Spain Rodriguez, and even the Beat writers. His art is beyond the cutting edge; his work is in the cut itself.

Marra received a B.F.A. in Illustration from Syracuse University; studied in Florence, Italy; and earned his M.F.A. degree in Illustration from the School of Visual Arts. He currently resides in Brooklyn, New York, where he draws comics and is a designer for the MLB Advanced Media.
