Vertigo has annouced that both Young Liars #1 and House of Mystery #1 have sold out at the distributor level, prompting the company to go back to press.Â But instead of two reprints, Vertigo is combinging both issues into a 48-page flip book featuring the complete issues.Â Best of all, Vertigo is keeping the price point at $2.99.Â Smart move Vertigo!
â€œWeâ€™re thrilled to see that two of our new monthly series are in such demand,â€ says Karen Berger, Senior VP â€“ Executive Editor, Vertigo. â€œNow you can get the first issue of two Vertigo staples for the price of one: the gritty crime fiction of YOUNG LIARS and HOUSE OF MYSTERYâ€™s modern horror.â€
The two-for-one issue arrives August 6, 2008.
I’m glad Young Liars sold out. Easily one of the best titles being produced by DC since it’s debut. I hope it does well in trade as well.
