Bleeding Cool has learned that before Our Love Is Real moves to Image Comics, Sam Humphries and Steve Sanders are creating one final secret fourth self-published printing of the comic. Entitled The Crystal Edition and limited to a hundred copies (the previous three prints had three hundred copies printed each, making a cool thousand), and signed and numbered by the creative team?. So what’s happening to them all.
Independent of both Diamond and Image, Humphries will be giving fifty of the copies to retailers who order twenty-five copies or more of the Image first issue in November (SEPT110383 – contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details)
Then forty-five will go to people who helped with the production, distribution and success of the original.
And five copies are being made available for sale to Bleeding Cool readers, as a thank you for the site’s participation in the comic’s launch. $15 each plus postage. This printing will not be sold anywhere else.
Here is the Paypal link. First come first served. It is 5pm in the UK, noon on the East Coast, 9am on the West. That’s as fair as I can make it.
If you luck out, here is a link to the pre-order app for the Image version.
Currently the non-signed first print is selling for almost $100 on eBay…
UPDATE – Gone. It took you less than three minutes. Well done.
