As of yesterday, The Other Dead #1 has officially sold out. This is IDW’s zombie animal book, that was a really good read. We had spotlighted this book previously as there were a couple of things of interest with it. First, there was the Obama Variant cover, holding guns (one of which I am sure would be considered an assault weapon.) Two, it was supposed to come out on September 11th, but customs held it to “spray for moths.” Three, Kevin Eastman of ‘Teen Age Mutant Ninja Turtles’ fame did a subscription variant cover featuring, of all things, turtles.
Home Sick today. It happens from time to time. It gives me a chance to be ahead of the curve on some of my posts.
The Diamond Comics Advanced reorder list is a speculator’s hand book. It gives what comics have been reordered in advanced of final order cut off.

The response to the signed books was overwhelming and I sold through the batch I had signed by Kurtis Wiebe (Peter Panzerfaust) and Roc Upchurch.

Update: Third Eye Comics contacted me and have some extra copies they had signed at the store. They are letting me offer them up to you guys first. Once again, let me know if anyone is interested in getting a copy of Rat Queens 1 signed by Kurtis Wiebe and Roc Upchurch.
Email me at email@example.com.
update: All books and lithos are sold out. Thank you guys for buying the signed books. I will be doing it again with “Pretty Deadly” with Kelly Sue Deconnick in a few weeks. Keep an eye out for details.
update: I have four copies left and the litho has sold.
I had sold a few of these on pre-order and had a couple of people who said they were interested but didn’t end up getting them. I have 8 copies of Rat Queen #1 signed by Kurtis Wiebe and Roc Upchurch still available. Hit me up at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested. I also have a signed lithograph print available. There were only 30 of these made, and were produced just for the signing. The 30 prints were broken down between each of the four characters so there are less than 8 of each character made.
And for the third of three stories on recent Image sell outs, this has the biggest print run. We also just reported Rat Queens and Zero, both from Image have sold out. The print run follows the bump.
