Dynamite funds classic Terminator comic collections in 2 hours on BackerKit

Get ready for more tales of death-dealing robots, because there’s a heaping helping of classic Terminator books coming up from Dynamite.

Well, that was a success

Not long ago, we told you about the return of the Terminator license to comics. Publisher Dynamite Comics picked up rights to the famed action/sci-fi property, and will be printing fresh adventures very soon to coincide with the 40th anniversary of the debut film.

But that wasn’t all that was revealed at the time, as Dynamite is also planning on bringing back Terminator’s classic comic-based stories in some form. Just how that would come to be was a little bit of a mystery, though we now know the full details. And yes, it involves crowd funding.

Dynamite took to BackerKit for that, creating a campaign with the goal of seeing multiple volumes of reprinted tales that haven’t seen the light of day in a long time. A trio of tomes have been announced thus far, complete with multiple tiers, depending on how much fans want to plunk down in advance. There’s even “Metal Jacket” hardcovers and a cool slip-case for all three on the way.

As you can see above too, said campaign has been a smashing success. The company reports that the full goal of $25k USD was hit in just two hours, with an eventual pledge every ten minutes for five hours straight after that. As of this writing, it’s total is a heady $103,775 USD, and with 27 days to go on the campaign, you can probably expect to see it balloon up from there.
