Help a brother out: Salgood Sam deserves to finish Dream Life

I've been a fan of the artist Salgood Sam (a.k.a. Max Douglas) for a few years now, at least since reading the excellent graphic novel Therefore Repent!, for which he provided the art. For the last couple years (at least), he's been working on a book called Dream Life: A Late Coming of Age, which features more of his stunning artwork, and he's on the home stretch, hoping to have it finished and printed in time for the Toronto Comic Arts Festival in May 2013. In order to make that goal, he's asking for some help, so if you've got any funds to spare that can be put toward quality comics, please drop by his site and buy something from him. He's got all sorts of neat stuff for sale, including original artwork and commissions, and even the art from an unpublished Ghost Rider 2099 story written by Warren Ellis!



Right now, you can get a free sketch with any order over $40, but even if you don't want to spend that much, you can pick up digital copies of the aforementioned Therefore Repent! or his anthology series Revolver. Every little bit helps, and if we can do anything to assist in getting artwork like this out into the world, I think this Internet thing can be called a success.
