We talked a bit about this in another thread. Figured Id start a new thread for it since we just started one on CGC. Pre order your copies now. Hickman!

5 in the bag at MT. At least 1 from my LCS, perhaps more. Love that you can speculate cheap and not feel like you will lose your ass

Yeah I ordered 5 myself. Good point about cheap speculation. Might order 5 more just in case. Worst case scenario i lost 20 dollars

I stocked up on Secret #1's. Still kind of annoyed but whatever

I pre-ordered this one. Hickman is good, could be big, but might take 6 issues + to fly.

I hope not...Hickman hasn't had any for Manhattan Projects, hopefully he doesn't start here.

Variants kill books like this IMO

I could be wrong but I think that is the cover for #2....don't hold me to it. But yea I pre-ordered it as well. Just one copy to read, I don't flip. I buy, read, and collect.

Experience has led me to believe ordering heavy is not a bad thing. If this book winds up tanking, I can still sell them for cover price or there abouts. I'm still working my way through multiples of manhattan projects, thief of thieves, revival, etc. So far the only comic I wish I never bought multiples is mind the gap, and now Secret. Mind the Gap still has potential though.

I've followed this route and it has worked out pretty well. That's why reading the books for a while and knowing the top creative teams really helps. It will pay off when you pre-order 20 Thief of Thieves over 20 Elephant Men or Youngblood (ugh Youngblood)

Just in case anyone hasn't gotten in on this book yet, DCBS and M&M still have it open for pre-order. Both sites are at $1.75 per copy.

Heh, I just posted the article in the CGC thread about this

If the story is solid, I am definitely all in on this book. Love the covers!

I know I am the odd one out but I didn't preorder this. Just going to grab 1-2 copies from my LCS. With so many of the collectors ordering multiple copies, I should be able to get a few copies from somewhere in case I really liked it. Then again, I am a newbie so probably will missed out if this book gets off like nowhere men.

New titles are like cancer to some shops. They may not be as excited about it as they hear hype all month long for hundreds of titles, and some owners don't pay attention to the audience and/or the books. In saying that, it's reasonable to think, and I've seen it, where a shop owner will only order 1 or maybe if he's feeling good, 2 of a new title.

For example, my shop got 1 The Sixth Gun: Sons of the Guns #1. ONE. Yeah, and I bought it.

Does Hickman believe in totally plain covers so that people actually focus on the writing? First Manhattan Projects, now this. Half the page is white with lettering and the other half is basically a simplistic drawring in one color with different tones. I don't know about you guys, but I love great artistic covers that slap you in the face with awesomeness when you first see them, that's why I want a copy in my collection. I hope the writing is great, and that the production is under 50,000 for #1, but I am not a fan of the covers and the entire series will probably have this cover style ongoing.
