Good morning, gentle readers!
BLACK MAGICK #1 FOC’s THIS COMING MONDAY, OCTOBER 5!
As the handy image, created by our hyper-talented designer Eric Trautmann, above shows, this comes in three flavors:
- A 40-page ad-free comic with a cover by Nicola Scott, featuring some fun bonuses, including part one of a new piece of fiction from Greg Rucka.
- A 40-page ad-free comic with a cover by Jill Thompson, with all the same goodies as above.
- A 64-PAGE AD-FREE MAGAZINE-SIZE COMIC (I put that in all caps because it’s literally and figuratively huge and we’re all very proud of it), featuring a cover by Rick Burchett and Romulo Fajardo, with ALMOST 30 PAGES OF BONUS MATERIAL.
Retailers, make sure you get those orders in, and readers, talk to you
friendly neighborhood comic shop and ask them to pre-order the book for
you, so you guarantee yourself a copy.
And please feel free to utilize the handy ask button that’s up there somewhere if you have any questions or comments.
See you in October!
OK, two things.
First, there is a BLACK MAGICK tumblr, that is being curated by our amazing editor (editrix? I just like using words with ‘x’s in them…), Jeanine Schaefer ( karatemonkey ). You should totally follow that, because it might have some cool stuff about the comic, but mostly because Jeanine is Awesome, and she didn’t pay me to say that about her or anything and I swear I’m working as fast as I can but a lot of work stacked up while I was in Australia and I’m behind…
Thing Second, there seems to have been some sort of confusion with Diamond as to what covers were being offered and where and how. So the thing, here, is that these are the three versions of the book that are being offered for sale. These have always been the three versions of the book that we were planning to offer for sale.
Regular comic A - 40 pages, cover by Nic.
Regular comic B - 40 pages, cover by Jill Thompson.
Magazine version - 64 pages, cover by Rick Burchett.
I know, I just repeated exactly what was in the initial post. I believe in being thorough.
We are, as you might imagine, very proud of these.
Hope you dig ‘em!
