SubCulture Volume 3 in this month’s Previews!on September 7, 2011 at 12:01 am
Order order order now (I would order now). Ask your local comic shop to order SubCulture Volume 3: The Return of the King’s Throne in this month’s Previews. You can find it on page 226, and the order code is SEP11 0739. This volume features Bart’s discovery of old books in his back room, another SuperCon storyline, and the first appearance of Sunshine, Larry, and Merlin’s Outhouse. This collects strips 187-279 if you are keeping score at home. Only 10 bucks (maybe less) for 96 pages packed with peanuts.
Waitaminute. Did you say volume THREE? What the hell happened to volume TWO?
Well, there is a good (bad) story to that. The short story is that our solicitation for Volume 2 that we sent to Ape a few months ago got, well, misplaced. And by the time that they had found it, I had given them the solicitation for Volume 3, which they proceeded to send to Diamond. So long story short–Volume 3 is being solicited before Volume 2.
But fear not. Volume 2 should be in the October Previews, and if all goes well, both Volumes 2 and 3 will ship to stores at the exact same time, as soon as we get the numbers for both. The books are printed, so we can’t blame the printer for any SNAFUS that might happen along the way.
Hopefully this won’t cause any hassles, and things will be business as usual here in old SubCulture-land.
In the meantime, keep enjoying the strips as we get close to finishing everything that is going to go in Volume 4.
