Mr. Gunnarson recently went to Kickstarter to announce plans to launch a comic book, The World’s Most Daring Escape Artist. The book will be a 32-page anthology written by Lovern Kindzierski, author of the acclaimed Shame trilogy. Mr. Kindzierski has written for Marvel, Heavy Metal, Dark Horse and Penny Farthing Press. Renowned British comic book artist, Simon Bisley, will create the artwork and award-winning British artist, Glenn Farby will illustrate the cover.
Mr. Gunnarson is currently starring on the OLN show tamely titled Escape or Die. The show is a fascinating look into the hours of preparation that goes into the escapes staged around the world.
The comic book will include stories behind three of Mr. Gunnarson’s most famous escapes: The Russian Death Tank, The Shark Bait Escape and The Snake Temple.
The campaign is just starting out but looks like it is off to a great start. We hope it gets fully funded and look forward to the book.
