The self-published comic Solar Flare has been picked up by a publisher and will reprint the first six issues. The book will be distributed through Diamond Comics Distributors. While I cannot mention the name of the publisher yet, I will say I am very pleased with where the book is heading.
A while back I mentioned the book Solar Flare. It is a self published comic that follows Jake Clifford. A massive solar flare hits, causing an EMP that wipes out the entire power grid, all electronics, all vehicles, pretty much everything we rely on in our daily lives. The world goes to hell. I had been in contact initially about getting copies of the book since the premise was so good, and after reading the first issue digitally (which I never do), I ordered the floppy copies and was hooked. I came on here and told everyone about it.
Needless to say, with as good as the book is, both art and story, and with it going to a very good, spec worthy company, I can see a demand for the original, self published comics. The regular covers were limited to 3,000 copies each, with a variant cover that as limited to 400 copies. There was an even rarer glow in the dark cover that has sold out a while ago (I have a copy for myself).
