More Books Should Have Comic Press Releases
Normally, I don’t consider “we didn’t print enough copies to satisfy demand” (usually phrased as “our first print sold out!”) newsworthy enough to cover, but I applaud the way IDW announced that in relation to the Comic Book History of Comics (published in single issue form as Comic Book Comics) by Fred van Lente and Ryan Dunlavey. The two created the following one-page comic. It’s not the first comic press release, but I hope more creators follow their lead in making somewhat standard news more visually interesting. Love the comic store customers with the pitchforks!
