Larry's Comics Pick of the Week for 7/30/14

Larry from Larry’s Comics has been a the spec game a while. His picks have been on fire, picking the books no one sees coming, which in turn, have been heating up on the secondary market. Here is this weeks, for delivery 7/30/14

AND THEN EMILY WAS GONE #1 (OF 5) (MR)
COMIXTRIBE
(W) John Lees (A) Iain Laurie (CA) Iain Laurie, Riley Rossmo
Greg Hellinger is a man who sees monsters. A former detective driven to the brink of madness by terrifying apparitions, he is tasked with finding a missing girl named Emily. Hellinger’s search takes him to a remote community in the Scottish Orkney Islands, where strange and terrifying things are happening. Features a variant cover by artist Riley Rossmo (Bedlam, Drumheller).
WHY?
#1- It has a microscopic print run. Most shops will not have it this Wednesday. Just under 3k copies were printed. 2,300 ordered by Diamond.
Three covers: A & B & my shop variant ltd to 250. I know that I have a “chip” in this game because of my variant, but I ordered the variant because of the high quality of the material. I also drew the variant. It’s the first in a series of covers that I will illustrate: Lariants.
#2-Obscure publisher that few shops order. It’s not just “Indy” , it’s alternative. Try & find one Wednesday in the wild. You’ll have to go online, I bet.
#3- The art & story will appeal to some of the most diehard fanbases: Horror & JTHM.
#4- The first two issues were self-published in black and white in Scotland. Will add to collectors demand, and give collectors and speculators something to hunt for.
I have the inside track that there is MORE than the mini in the works…
( I hate mini series as speculator-y plays)

    The focus of your posts should be this site, NOT necessarily the Lariant.

  3. If your LCS doesn’t order Comix Tribe books I suggest asking them to do so. Epic #1 by them was awesome. When ones kryptonite is hot chicks it makes for an awesome read. Be a awesome movie! Wake up Hollywood!
