Al Rio Tribute Art Book Sets Sail NOW

1962-2012 Álvaro Araújo Lourenço do Rio was professionally known as “Al Rio.” This is Volume One of an exciting new Art Book series!

Al Rio Tribute Art Book Volume One

This Kickstarter campaign is to raise money to publish Volume One in a series of books I’m producing to showcase his incredible artwork.

Al Rio was a very prolific artist! Over the years we shared dozens of projects and I have hundreds of scans of his work to share. This is Volume 1 of what could be a 3 or 4 volume series in which I’ve chosen some of the best and most representative images of his work.

I’m starting back in 2003 and going up to 2005 in this Volume. Material in this collection is mature. There are no nudes but there is some pinups which may be considered “risqué.”

Total Needed? = $5500
Can we do it with your help!


An amazing 88 page Hardcover *full color* book, filled with Al Rio’s incredible artwork. Shipped to your door!

There will be many penciled pieces, inked pieces, and pieces colored by the long time colorist partner Thomas Mason.

There are full color Pin-ups:

Rough Sketches:

Character Art:


Model Sheets:

The famous comic cover that launched Zenescope Entertainment – Grimm Fairy Tales #1:

And so much more!

The book is already laid out thanks to the incredible work by the seasoned comic book professional, Mark McNabb, whose credits include books for Neal Adams, Jill Thompson, Don Heck, Alex Horley, Wally Wood and more. It looks FANTASTIC! It just needs to be printed!

With your help this book can be real!


About the Author

Richard is the driving force behind Comics for Sinners. His love and admiration for female comic book characters is virtually unparalleled, which immediately explains his biggest 'sin': his Hot Mummy fetish. This sketchbook theme is philogynistic in nature and even the source of his WIP comic book series "The Sisterhood".
