In Squid We Trust.
We are so thrilled to be working with the Squid King himself, Ben Templesmith. Our first collaboration with Ben was this stunning replica of The Squidder Coin, released in Spring/Summer of 2015.
“The Squidder” is an original graphic novel, created, written and illustrated by Templesmith, published by 44FLOOD. If you haven’t read it yet, think Mad Max meets Cthulhu. That’s right, a lone hero in a world destroyed by giant squid monsters — cool, creepy and totally brutal.
The coin is a solid half pound of bronze-plated pewter, which we cast in New England, then clean, polish and package by hand, right in our Maine studio. It measures at about 4.25 inches in diameter and comes packaged in a sleek, handmade black leather pouch. Each one is hand-numbered, and the series is limited to just 500 pieces.
At Boston Comic Con in 2015, we released a new 16 oz. pint glass based on Ben’s beautiful “DAGON” art. We’re looking forward to partnering on lots of new collectibles.
