Scrapyard Pre-orders Opening on Friday the 27th
Submitted by Howard Tayler on March 23, 2009 - 21:06
In a recent interview with Brian and Justin of Comics Coast-To-Coast I said that pre-orders would open in â€œabout two weeks.â€ (aside: I also said some other stuff. Listen to the podcast! My bit begins about 10 minutes in.)
â€œWithinâ€ about two weeks would have been more accurate. The plotter proofs arrived today, we examined them, and we are now confident that the printer is going to deliver to us the 5,000 books and 2,000 slip-cases exactly like we want them.
This Friday, March 27th, at around 8:00am Mountain Time weâ€™ll open pre-orders for Schlock Mercenary: Scrapyard of Insufferable Arrogance as well as for slip-cases which are designed to fit the first five Schlock Mercenary books. Scrapyard will be $15.00, $25.00 if you want a numbered sketch edition, and the slipcases will be $5.00.
If you want to buy a boxed set â€” all five Schlock books in the slipcase â€” weâ€™ll happily sell you that for the nice, round-numbered price of $100.00 ($110 with a sketched Scrapyard inside). But we can only sell 500 boxed sets, because weâ€™re down to our last 500 copies of Schlock Mercenary: Under New Management.
Please note that these are pre-orders, and that we donâ€™t anticipate shipping books until the first week in June. The schedule may get advanced into late May, but Iâ€™d prefer to set everyoneâ€™s expectations in an appropriately conservative manner.
