DUNE CLUB was fantastic, and we’re looking forward to WATCHMEN CLUB, nicely done https://twitter.com/cbgirl19 http://cbg19.bigcartel.com/product/watchmen-box … last day to purchase is today… “None of you understand. I’m not locked up in here with YOU. You’re locked up in here with ME.”
Almost 10 years ago when Limor and I were planning out what we wanted to do together with Adafruit, we had “DUNE BOX” in a list of subscription box ideas (after the Adafruit one, which is now called ADABOX). In that list was WATCHMEN and of course Transmetropolitan. The idea was a magazine/comic, etc. along with things to make/cosplay, for Transmet, cool glasses, I really just want a pair of those. Back when I started hackaday, I wanted to do a monthly hackbox’ too, then at MAKE, move it to a magazine every 3 months that comes with a kit/project in the box like the GAKKEN mooks’ (magazine+book). ADABOX became a reality, but doing something like DUNE or WATCHMEN or TRANSMET isn’t possible for us, for someone to do this and to be part of the community that reads along is special and since we do not need to do all the work, but can appreciate what goes in to it, even more so.
What comicbookgirl19 is doing is a lot of work, a lot of effort, a lot of really caring about the people who have made these stories and art their own, pick up a WATCHMEN club box and join the future of book clubs (live video reading, community and more).
