The Diamond Summit 2017 is underway in Chicago ahead of C2E2. And Bleeding Cool has eyes and ears on the floor.
They talked about how they appreciated the direct market, and their investment and support for Oni Press.
They pushed a number of titles from the most recent set of solicitations, Rick And Morty: Pocket Like You Stole It based on the best-selling mobile game, which will have a preview in the FCBD book.
While Rick And Morty HC Volume 2 has new sound recorded by Justin Roiland. It yells at you when you open it.
They have a new edition of Atomic Blonde to tie into the new Coldest City movie based on the property by Anthony Johnston. New printings of The Coldest City will be rebranded as Atomic Blonde to reflect the new movie title.
And a new Scott Pilgrim’s Precious Little Card Game from Renegade Games. Designed by the maker of Gloom (Card Game).
They have brand new titles
Dead of Winter, based on the board game by Plaid Hat Games.
