Have You Pre-Ordered Samurai Jack #1?

My blog has been extremely Jack-focused as of late. My apologies if it’s been a bit relentless. That’s what happens when a new project is looming on the horizon.

I just wanted to take a moment to stress the importance of pre-ordering Samurai Jack if you’re interested in buying the comic starting in October. With so many great comics coming out every week it’s more important than ever to let your local comic shop know that you’re interested in a series and intend to collect it.

Retailers use pre-orders as a way to gauge overall interest in a title and in many cases those pre-orders will help determine how many extra copies they order to display for casual customers and whether or not they put extra promotional efforts behind it. It does make a difference, believe me.

Here’s the info you need, especially the item code, to give to your local shop. Make sure you pre-order if you want the Genndy Tartakovsky (creator of Samurai Jack) limited cover. It has a separate order code, so don’t miss out!
