They all have faded out parts to them. No one would sketch like this. those big wings are just missing parts in the middle, but the line arcs continue past the smudged out parts to get thicker again. Seems fake to me. What's this supposed to be, "art"?


Yeah, i think this was intentionally made to look old and worn. kind of like old documents from the 1700's that somehow survived.

Well, I think that was silly then. It would have been nice to be able to see the actual sketched, unerased... *sigh*

Yes - 2 emails from Kickstarter. They came from notification@kickstarter.com

From a graphic design standpoint, this really bothers me. A lot of it is very amateur and I get a cheap 80's vibe from it. Maybe this was on purpose, but I do not like it. Then again, not sure was I was expecting from a $16 item. Surely not a beautifully laid out, illustrated and comprehensive coffee table style book, but still.

I know this is a silly question 'cause I'm sure you already checked, but is your currently used email still your Kickstarter email? I got the two emails from notification@kickstarter.com as well.

If KRCO is here to save us, we're @%$#&}!

On a positive note, Nate's work is spectacular and I'd love to see him do a whole book. Nate, you're the premiere ML artist and I'm excited for more!

If so I don't think it was worth the $14 plus shipping. Unless they announce some kind of change to how they do the books and add some value, I think this may be my first and last. I hate to say that, I really do. :(


Where were the game rules?

One if the last pages has a sidebar that has card game rules on it. Some variety of War maybe?

Agreed! Easily the best part of the book.

So, while I'm glad to have the book at least in some form, I can't say I'm thrilled with the design. Certainly the lack of inking was an interesting choice and I don't think I'd have gone in that direction. If they couldn't find an inker for some reason, that just strengthens the argument that the publisher is not "ready for prime time."

I really don't like the metal pattern behind the bios, that's the most egregious design choice of the whole book to my eyes. It's just very dated and unnecessary. Overall the design lacks consistency and style, which is unfortunate given the talent out there and the potential for this to be something real special.

So in the end, the product fell far short of the hype and hyperbole. The folks over at He-Man.org have produced some wonderful material with Darkhorse, I wish the 4H would have chosen them or someone equally as skilled. My advice (as if anyone cares)...find a different publisher.

It is the worst... reminds me of something you'd see as a background on 90's trading cards.
