I know we have more than our fair share of comic and graphic novel fans here at Dread Central, and this news should be right up their alley. For the first time ever, Idw Publishing is holding a public sale at its San Diego headquarters this Saturday, December 6, from 10:00 am-3:00 pm.
The sale is primarily intended to free up space in Idw’s warehouse for the company’s expanded and exciting line-up of titles in 2009. “Our warehouse manager is literally buried,” says Idw’s Chief Operating Officer, Greg Goldstein. “After 10 years of publishing, it’s only natural that the boxes have piled up because of accidental print overruns, books that were set aside as office copies, books intended for reviewers and others earmarked for promotional purposes. Time to get them out of here.”

Last night, Peter David and Mike Perkins did a midnight signing at the prestigious Midtown Comics in Time Square. Despite the late hour, there were several fans in attendance and each had the opportunity to be among the very first to purchase the debut issue of the new miniseries Dark Tower: Treachery and the premiere of the first miniseries based on Stephen King's other major work, The Stand: Captain Tripps.
The Dark Tower book series is Stephen King's very popular opus. The Dark Tower comics, plotted by King's aide Robin Furth (who also wrote The Dark Tower: A Complete Concordance) and scripted by Peter David (X-Factor, She-Hulk, Fallen Angel), have been serving as prequels to the series, showing the Gunslinger hero Roland when he was a young man and revealing other secrets of his home. Treachery is the third mini-series.
The Stand is perhaps Steven King's most famous book, »
