Manuals 2

Whether you’re obsessed with the comics of Kwanza Osajyefo, the live-streaming legends behind Critical Role, or the intricacies of really great design, this week’s projects will delight your inner fangirl, fanboy, or fanperson.


By Kwanza Osajyefo

In a world where only Black people have superpowers, how does America react? Find out in the sequel to Kwanza Osajyefo’s critically acclaimed comic BLACK.

Manuals 2: Design & Identity Guidelines

By Unit Editions

When Unit Editions first published Manuals 2 in 2014, the limited run of 2,000 copies sold out almost instantly. Now they’re back to reprint this comprehensive study of corporate identity manuals from the golden age of identity design.

Critical Role: The Legend of Vox Machina Animated Special

By Critical Role

The stars of Critical Role — an enormously beloved live role-playing show that one of our colleagues here at Kickstarter calls “the Gretzky of D&D live streams” — are reuniting to create a spectacular animated special for Critters and new fans alike.

Studio Sketchbook


Design duo CW&T are known for creating beautiful objects that are simple, functional, and durable. Their latest prototype is no exception: a sketchbook that’s “small enough to carry everywhere, but big enough to comfortably draw, take notes, or make nuggets of art.”

Boney Manilli

By Edgar Arceneaux

Loosely based on the story of Rob Pilatus, one-half of the disgraced ՚90s pop duo Milli Vanilli, Edgar Arceneaux’s new disco-infused performance, exhibition, and film will revisit pop stars and mystical icons from the ʼ90s. It needs your help to become reality.
