My latest offering for you to buy now and potentially save some moolah by not procrastinating, comes from a publisher out of Europe called Humanoids. Humanoids publishing is known for their line of more mature science fiction/fantasy graphic novels such as the Incal and Technopriests. Years ago, Humanoids had an agreement with DC comics to have their books distributed in North America by DC but after some time that distribution agreement fell apart and we did not see many if any Humanoids books around these parts after that. At the time that meant projects like I Am Legion were just left hanging for years.
For the last year however, Humanoids books have been showing up on comicbook store and indy bookstore shelves in increasing frequency and have looked pretty nice in the process. Now the reason I am mentioning this as a GEN post is because of an off handed comment that a comicstore manager made to me recently about how one of the recent books is already pretty much unavailable as a reorder for them. He said that the Mad Woman Of The Sacred Heart hardcover is sold out right now, so later I went online and searched around for it and found that on sites like ebay and amazon it was selling at prices well above cover and at other smaller retail sites it was either sold out or close to being sold out. Browsing around a bit more showed me that another Humanoids book, Screaming Planet (hardcover) is similarly becoming hard to find online at suggested retail price.
Okay, there you go; if you have seen these books, thought that they look pretty sweet and might be worth picking up sometime, you should probably make that time now…
