Free Comic Book Day Print Run.

Wednesday, March 21st, 2007

I received the proofs for the Wahoo Morris Free Comic Book today. Everything looks good, so I gave the go ahead to the printer to print the final comics.

I also set the final print run at 12000 copies. I know for a FCBD book that that is on the low side, but it is the largest single print run I have ever done of any book I have published, so I’m a little mind-boggled by the number.

In a few weeks those comics will be handed out free to Free Comic Book Day patrons in several countries. Here’s hoping a good percentage of those readers come back for more of the story! A five percent return will make me more than happy with the results of the promotion.

Look for the book at participating comic shops on May 5th!
