IDW Publishing’s groundbreaking print-only 200-page Comics & Culture hardcover “magazine,” FULL BLEED, took Kickstarter by storm at the end of 2017, and launched this spring to critical and commercial success, with an unprecedented publication, and a unique distribution plan. Having premiered April third on Kickstarter  the new volume of the flagship publication from IDW’s Portland satellite office: FULL BLEED VOL. 2: DEEP CUTS! 
The second volume contains such diverse content as; interviews with comic legend Walter Simonson, noted author Nnedi Okorafor, and Gilbert & Jaime Hernandez of Love and Rockets fame; features on war photographers, traveling in Iceland, punk rock legends, old comic shops and the Illuminati, new comics about the gods of ancient California, rock and roll concerts, and U-Boats; more new short fiction stories from noted authors; political rants from famed cartoonists, and more. It’s clear that the gauntlet laid down in the first volume was no fluke, and FULL BLEED promises to be a “coffee table magazine” the likes of which we’ve never seen before.
Creative Director Dirk Wood had this to say:
“It’s been so gratifying to see the response to the first volume, but we’re just getting started here. As much as we loved how the first one turned out, this one takes it up a notch.”
