Traditionally, ashcan comics were small print runs, often lacking in production values, colour, or size and published in order to secure copyright or trademark interests. In the nineties they were issued to promote upcoming titles with certain ashcans becoming highly collectible. When the speculator boom busted, they went away.
Well, now they’re back. And especially for Fight Club 2, may become just as collectible.
Is this a one off? Or an ongoing promotional plan for Dark Horse? And will others jump on board too?
Also, is it just me, or is Archie Vs. Predator going to overshadow the Archie #1 relaunch a little?
