Once in awhile someone will ask me how they can get the book. Like my sister who has clearly blocked me on twitter. So here’s a list of all the ways you can buy the first Deadhorse book (as of now).
More are coming, both in print and digitally. Including a rather popular digital one that rhymes with smomicksolgy.
Hanging with Tyros. Fantastic Four #211
“No wonder this question-mark stabbed his brother as well as hung him.”
from the adventures of 13 and Jinx.
I’m amazed that after listening to Saucerful of Secrets for the last twenty years I never noticed that Doctor Strange is on the cover.
It’s been a long time coming, but we’re nearing the arrival of the Deadhorse trade. I wrote the first drafts of issue one back in 2009 and Phil Sloan started pencils shortly thereafter. It’s hard to believe that within the next two months I’ll have a copy on my shelf. Sitting there. For all to see. Including the tours I plan on setting up (Tuesdays at 10, call ahead). Seriously, it means a lot to me. The tours that is. I bought a hat.
Last year Phil, David, and I put out six issues of Deadhorse monthly with 215 Ink. In the process, we got to meet a lot of really cool creators, made a few friends, and learned a lot. Recently though, we decided to return to putting Deadhorse out ourselves (technically through “Frankenstein’s Daughter” a creator owned imprint I created for Planet Gigantic). It wasn’t a decision we made lightly, but the more we thought about it, the more it made sense. I am really thankful to have worked with Andrew and 215 Ink and as I said before, they continue to put out some of the best comic work around.
That said, you might wonder what this means for Deadhorse. The good news is, nothing will change. If you have a comic review site or podcast, I’ll continue to ask you to review the book, we’ll continue to sell copies from our site, fill retailer orders, do everything that we had been doing prior.
Now for some bad news, and this was the case whether we stayed with 215 Ink or not, Deadhorse will not be available through Diamond. If I can work out a way where we distribute through Previews that makes sense for us, we will. And if we can’t, well that’s alright too. Last year, I had a lot of success dealing with retailers directly and hope to continue to add more. To be honest, I really like shipping books to stores. I like going to the Post Office. So if you own a store, or frequent one you want to stock our books, please feel free to reach out to me. All but one of the retailers we list on our web site I dealt with directly, so let me know if you want a reference.
But enough about that, what about the book? How can I get it? When is it out? Who are you talking to?
Deadhorse, Vol 1: Dead Birds will be available at the Asbury Park Comic-Con, the same con we launched issue #1 at last year. In the meantime we are taking pre-orders NOW. Pre-orders are IMPERATIVE. If you plan on getting the book please order it now. The money earned will be use to pay for the print run. Every dollar counts. Every one.
Hey look, someone just bought a PDF while I was typing this. That’s a good sign right?
I recently received request for a PDF of Animals so I figured why not post it here. I also created one for Tom & Violence.
Have at it and as always let me know what you think. If it’s something you like, please pass the link along.
