GREETINGS & SALUTATIONS / We're keeping this one short and sweet!
R4ID: KLAATU, the fourth volume of our yearly anthology series, has officially been shipped to all our Kickstarter supporters who responded to the survey.

We are so thankful for our supportive community, as it's thanks to YOU that we can continue sharing our stories and ideas in fabulous book form! We can't wait to reveal more details on BARATA, our 5th volume of the RAID anthology, soon. 😉
This week though, we're focussing on our upcoming RAID: CREATOR VISIONS collectible card set - launching Monday, January 30th at 11 am. Scroll on down to hear more about our exciting collaborators on this project, and why you should sign up for our pre-launch mailing list!
RAID VISIONS COLLABORATOR SPOTLIGHT / OUR PRE-LAUNCH PAGE IS LIVE! All future physical backers who subscribe with their email automatically snag an exclusive pre-launch chase card!
We're particularly pumped by this project as it provides a space for new characters, worlds, and stories to be discovered by YOU!
It’s the ultimate win for indie comic publishers to combine forces in a melting pot of creativity. It's also a fun opportunity to compare the differing power levels of this diverse array of characters and pit them head-to-head in a world-colliding smackdown reminiscent of Super Smash Bros.!
Introducing our all-star collaborators to the RAID RING! 🔔
ABOMINABLE BOOKS: Home to the critically acclaimed The Abominable Charles Christopher by renowned comic artist Karl Kerschl. The imprint was created to bring the beloved Eisner-award-winning webcomic to print and introduce it to a broader audience. The series follows the adventures of a child-like sasquatch through a forest full of colourful animal characters and has three volumes available already.
DEREK LAUFMAN: The place where this long-term comic veteran has been publishing his own comics and graphic novels, including Ruinworld, Bot-9, and The Witch Of Wickerson. Derek Laufman is a professional comic artist and illustrator with over 20 years of experience who has worked with Marvel, Dreamworks, TOPPS, Hasbro, and Mattel. He is the designer of Marvel’s Super Hero Adventure line and DC’s Super Friends.
GROUP OF 7 COMICS: A small publisher who had turned a great many heads since the launch of its acclaimed creator-owned comic books Group 7 and Peregrines — founded by Chris Sanagan and Jason Lapidus. Their mission is simple - tell great stories.
LETHAL COMICS: A "FOR US, BY US" comics company making the far-out comics they loved growing up and bringing them straight to the fans. No bullshit, just dope comics. Founded by Karl Kerschl and Andy Belanger. Their featured books include Mother Trucker, Psychogoreman, and the upcoming Orc Gym and Death Transit Tanager.
PEGAMOOSE PRESS: Founded by Brenda Hickey & Troy Little, two artists brought together by their mutual love of comics and cartoons. The publisher began as a means to find an audience of weirdos who shared the same sense of fun, imagination, and a love of books. Their featured books include Angora Napkin: The Golden McGuffin, Halls of the Turnip King, and Butterfly House.
PLUS, our very own creators at THE RAID STUDIO and RAID PRESS. Not only will we be featuring characters from our existing books like Forest Folk, Kukuburi, To Steal The Sun, but we'll also be revealing new characters from upcoming projects set to debut later this year!
PLUS PLUS! We'll be revealing some surprise creators that will be joining the fray shortly!
RAID PRESS / The deluxe Mr. Monster slipcase edition is officially available at the RAIDPress.com store!
A bit of background for any RAID newbies, Mr. Monster was one of the many heroes created during the Golden Age of Canadian comics. These “Canadian whites,” as they have since been dubbed due to the stark white paper they were printed on, resulted from the War Exchange Conservation Act during World War II. So, sit back and enjoy the bizarre adventures of this unique hero, collected for the first time.
This collection also includes rare, never before seen art, an interview with original Mr. Monster creator Fred Kelly, and an original pin-up gallery from over two-dozen contemporary Canadian artists!
