What kind of company is 5inity if I could ask. I think they are sketch cards but are they based off of random or comics/graphic novels. Also it seems that the market for these are a small. Any info would be great cause it sounds like an interesting product

While 5finity is indeed a small company, they have a very loyal dealer/collector base. They produce sketch card sets only...no base cards, no boxes, no "wax packs". What you receive are packs that usually measure arround 8"x5" that include one sketch card with the possibility of additional inserts (usually additional sketches, but sometimes there are creator autographs, redemptions for commission requests, etc).

Their subjects depend on who the founder can get a liscensing deal with. Their releases have included well established charachters, successful indy comics and other properties with followings as well as some stuff that is just plain fun:

Lady Death
Sheena
Hack/Slash
The Pro
Moonstone Maximum (all current Moonstone charachters)
Voltron
Mandy (wildly popular set featuring Dean Yeagle's Playboy charachter)

Then there is Zombies vs Cheerleaders, an original idea which is now has it's own comic book (perhaps a movie in the future?).

They are a great company who is always trying to find sets that have not been done and do them in a size that is appropriate for the market. Their next product to hit the streets next week will be a dual set...Kink Kong of Skull Island and Painkiller Jane.

Actually, the sold out announcement came at 8:22 which means it was likely MUCH quicker as Steve had to keep a tally as well as write up the email.

On sets like 5finity's and BadAxe's it is truely a matter of "the quick and the dead".

What's the best way to get a hold of these packs? I e-mailed the owner a few times without a response.

The packs were sold out from 5finity within minutes of them being officially solicited. Your only opportunity will be on the secondary market once they come out next month.
