“Legends of Log” Anniversary Celebration Now Underway

Ten years of “Timberrrrr!”

Can you believe that it’s already been a full decade since Giant Comics debuted Log, defender of the North Woods? While I was following the character and stories before it landed at its current, comfortable Alterna home, I have to admit, there’s still quite a bit I missed from those early years.

Now, Legends of Log creator Ski Suharski is giving fans a chance to catch up on ten years of Log lore with the Legends of Log Official Companion Handbook, as well as a number of additional items that Log lunatics will certainly want to check out.

The project is already fully funded, having raised approximately $1 thousand at the time of this writing.

Here’s the official pitch taken from the Legends of Log 10 Year Celebration Crowdfundr campaign page:

From 2012 to 2022, we’ve been working on comics and stories of your favorite ax-wielding wooden giant!

And now we’re ready to celebrate 10 amazing years with this all new 68 page official handbook. Which makes a perfect companion to go with your Legends of Log comics, or as a stand alone book of fantastic fun and fantasy.

WHO IS WHO Character Guide

The detailed WHO IS WHO Character Guide is filled with history, backgrounds, first appearances and more of just about every character, divided by four categories. The Protectors, The Spellcasters, The Ax-Men and The Beast.

Each category in the WHO IS WHO gives readers info about characters they won’t find anywhere else.

Story Archives and Summaries

WEAPONS and POWERS

Next – Weapons and Powers list gives details on weapons and magical powers that characters in the Legends of Log use.

Map of the North Woods and Beyond

Next – The Map of the North Woods and beyond guides you within the world of the Legends of Log. With destinations and reference points to where amazing adventures take place.

WHAT IF… Pinups

What if… Log was to use a sword instead of an ax?

7 fun What if… Pinups from the amazing artists and illustrators from the Legends of Log comics.

OF THINGS TO COME…

Special 3 page preview of things to come in the next upcoming Legends of Log adventure. It’s the story that tells of Log’s origins and how he came to be, the mighty wooden giant.

Finally – The 10 Year Celebration!

A special section in the handbook that is officially numbered and stamped with the 10 year Legends of Log illustration mark. Includes a special forward with a pictorial timeline from 2012 to 2022 and bio’s of illustrators, writers and letterers throughout the years.

And last but not least… Special extras and surprises!

Your Legends of Log Official Companion Handbook also comes with some special extras to go along with it. A 6×9 color art card and a 6×9 black and white line art card. Both featuring the cover art from the Legends of Log Official Handbook. These special extras will only be available with the Legends of Log Official Companion Handbook.

Backers can get a copy of the Legends of Log Official Companion Handbook for $20. If you want more of the above-mentioned books, bonuses and tchotchkes, you can get the full package for $75 (a couple of bucks cheaper than buying them all over individually). It is also worth noting that there is an additional shipping charge starting at $10 for those in the United States.
