382 Fathom Blue 2 3,656

Books of note:
Transference 1 5,104 – Black Mask continues to put out great books with tiny print runs. From what I hear many Black Mask books have media deals in the works, so they are always worth picking up.

Enormous V2 1 5,318- Coming in way smaller than expected, even with the push of a new #1. Completely sold out and going back for a second print.

21st Century Tank Girl 2 5,993- Small print run, sexy cover. Highly sought after.

Power Up 1 6,974- This pick of the week came in with a small print run. All ages book with ties to media (Adventure Time.)

Strange Fruit 1 14,513- Strong talent on this book, but still under 15,000 copies.

  1. Transference #1 is the only Black Mask on the list so all those other issues they put out in July are less than 3656… no wonder They Can Never Go Home #3 was so hard to come by.

  2. the LCS has about 20 copies of Transference #1, both covers…..doesn’t seem to be moving so I haven’t picked one up yet. Once I see that stack start to get smaller, I’ll jump in.
