I'll put some feelers out, that would be too cool.

Issue six print run was most likely about 6300-6600 so I would say definitely less.

Also thanks to Ken for coming out to San Diego for the signing, pics will be posted later today from that event.

Now that would be cool to see as one of the quotes on the cover!

So Ken are you ready for NYCC???

Why did Ken printed 1k less given that this book is on the rise? Interesting.

On a side note, I look through the Sept print run for all image titles. Saga is the only title that increased (not surprising)

All other titles in 2013 have reduced print runs, even the celebrated East of West, which has now suffered a 33% reduction in print runs, relative to #1.

Todd has the least reduction, with only 3% less issues relative to #1. That bodes well.

I am sure with the attention of the tv show and Ken's relentless marketing, this will grow to a 10k title probably by issue 10. When that happens, the current price for issue #1 will seems cheap.

I agree. The reason for the much lower print run is because of it releasing the following week after issue 5 and also issue 5 having 1,000 more by virtue of it having a variant so I'm pretty confident that issue 6 is around that range.

10 is the end of the current arc isnt it? if its the beginning of a new arc then yeah, I see that number happening easy.

I wish my 1 grading would get here like now.

Problem Solved Ken: Have Todd eat a Medium and gain the ability to fart the future.

What do you smell Todd? WHAT DO YOU SMELL?

I smell.... trouble

WHAT? Does Grandma die? Is my cat run over by a car?

No.. Trouble as in I need to change my undies.

Damn straight we will. Chew isn't a tenth the comic that Todd is, and thats the truth.

Ken Thanks again for coming out to San Diego for the signing.

Below is some pictures from that event:

Of course Ken wears a Billy Jack T-Shirt! Wicked. Love the Todd masks.

Hi Ken,

Please allow me to humbly propose one marketing thing you might not have tried. My main job is online marketing so pardon the job creep.

1) Find a list of relevant keywords that describe Todd using Google Suggest.
For example, I used the following search term and came up with "best comedy comic books".




Then the next step is to look the list of sites that come up and see how to get Todd listed in as many of them as possible. These search visitors are all looking for the thing that Todd can provide so the conversion should be high




You can repeat this process for as many keywords as you like. This is leaving a nice footprint in Google so that those searching for related stuff can always find you.

Other keywords you can use include




If you use this method to come up with a list of sites that can funnel traffic to Todd, you can even ask your supporters to help you get todd listed in these sites.

Thanks alot, I thought the masks (bags) were a cool idea.

A few things from the signing:

The Albanian will release around March 2014, and it will be drawn by MK in a much more noir style (black & white).

Todd TV show will most likely be on Adult Swin or FX (Details are still being worked out), and hopefully will be premiering next summer. Voice talent hiring has began, Ken mentioned some potential names.

So who do you feel would be the perfect voice for Todd? or any other character for that matter?

I'm sure whoever is cast will be great, and can't wait for it to release.
