Did you know that Dark Horse’s latest promotional-priced series launch, The Escapist #1, is a reprint? The story was previously published in Michael Chabon Presents: The Amazing Adventures of the Escapist #8. (Gee, I wonder, with a title like that, why a relaunch with a shorter name would be a good idea?)
I didn’t, either — probably because Dark Horse didn’t bother to mention it to anyone. It wasn’t in Previews, where all relevant order information is supposed to be listed. Sounds to me like Dark Horse should make orders returnable, because some customers and retailers were misinformed about what it was they were buying.
Update: Reportedly, Dark Horse has agreed and the comics will be returnable.
