Hard 8 Vol. 1 Sold Out.

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 Photos

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.

Fit For Print

164. That's the page count of this here mock-up, and it signals the long-awaited end of production for Hard 8 Vol. 2!  It's been a long trek to get here, but the final product was definitely worth the wait. Joining the ranks of Hard 8 contributors this time around are some extremely talented folks, including the likes of Mike Mattesi (author of Force), Mike Daley, Scott Morse, and Matt Spangler (of The Those Guys), among others.  The book is being printed even as I type this, and will make its debut at the Hard 8 booth (1034) at Comic-Con (next month)!

If you weren't able to make it, I've got some photos from the show up on my website (click here), and Erich has some great ones on his blog as well (click here).
