Jeff Smith’s ‘RASL’ Sells Out
Good news for Jeff Smith, as RASL #1 is going back to press.
Smith mentioned that the first issue has sold out in a blog post about his trip to Las Vegas for ComicsPro, the second annual meeting of direct-market comics retailers.
We immediately learned that most retailers were sold out of RASL #1, and had been for weeks! During the Cartoon Books presentation I announced that RASL #1 would be going back to press. The new printing, which will sport a new color logo (and a price on the cover of the book!) will be offered through Diamond soon. Our intitial orders for #1 were 20,000 and we printed an extra 4,000 which we blew through the first weekend.
If you haven’t yet read RASL and want to hear a little more about it before picking up a copy of the second printing, my review is right here.
For those who care about things like first editions, good luck finding a copy. The stores are cleaned out and there are hardly any copies on eBay.
