BLOWTORCH by Alfred Paige, Osvaldo Pestana Montpieler, and an exclusive cover is by MONTOS. Ximphonic Versus is by Xing Xin, with an exclusive cover by Xing Xin. LADY FREEDOM #2 is by Spike Jarell and Arthur Bellfield, with an exclusive cover by Chris Callahan.
1st: Why not distribute them through Diamond?
Bradley: We currently have diamond exclusives coming as second prints of issue 1 of Cult of Dracula #1, Book of Lyaxia#1, and LADY FREEDOM #1. So I felt that offering special incentive covers only at our website would help drive marketability to these titles as well as the company. Each book is limited to a 200 – 300 print run only.
1st: Can retailers order them at a discount?
Bradley: Yes retailers along with collectors can order these from the website. Right now if you get a bundle there is no shipping. We also have some that are 20-40% off.
