With the production of the first two Hard 8 books now a distant memory, and only one post since the Bush administration, it's safe to say updates on this blog have, for the time being, come to an end. Its intended purpose served, it will live on as an archive of awesome times.
A few points of interest:
• Hard Ei8ht Volume 1 is sold out, but is available in digital format from Graphic.ly.
• Hard Ei8ht Volume 2 is, at the moment, still available. 163 pages for $10! Links in the sidebar.
• The Art Of Hard Ei8ht is still available. Get it by itself for $5, or get it bundled with Volume 2 for $15. Links in the sidebar.
• The artists involved in Hard 8 also have lots of other cool stuff going on. Check out the sidebar for links to everyone's sites.
• Most importantly, we're not done. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for updates on what's next for Hard 8.
Thanks for your support!

Just got word from Erich that we just sold our last copies of Hard 8 Vol. 1, which means the book is officially sold out. If you picked it up, thank you, and if you didn't, sorry. But we've still got some Vol. 2's left, so if you've got 15 bucks burning a hole in your pocket, give it a try.

Hard 8 Vol. 2 debuted at Comic-Con last week, and it was a great show. If you haven't yet purchased your copy, here are a few photos to sway you. Also, check out the beautiful special edition hardcover version (dubbed the "Harder Than Hard Edition"). There were only 20 of these made, and about half of them are gone. If you're thinking about picking one up, do it before it's too late.

Going to Comic-Con? We've added a special Comic-Con Pre-Order button to the right... Pre-Order Hard 8 Volume 2 now, then swing by Booth 1034 anytime during the show and we'll have your copy waiting for you! Pre-ordered books will include signatures and sketches by the Hard 8 crew. Lots of other Hard 8 story contributors and pin-up artists will be available to sign at their booths as well, including Mattesi, Mike Daley, Scott Morse, Matt Spangler (of The Those Guys), and Joshua Pruett (also of The Those Guys). If you can't make it to the show, don't worry, we've got a special Pre-Order button for you, too. Head to the sidebar to place your order, and we'll start shipping in July. Also, we have a very limited supply of Volume 1 left, so if you're gonna get it, get it now. In the meantime, check out a sampling of pages from the new book. Enjoy!
